Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
Yesterday (Saturday, June 8), Raincoast Books held their semi-annual TeensRead Preview event! This was the third Raincoast event I joined in on (click here to see my first Raincoast event recap), but the first time I have ever attended via the online livestream!
I live-streamed the event on my Apple TV, and it was such a great experience watching and participating from the comfort of my own home! Throughout the event, I interacted with everybody by tweeting about Raincoasts’ upcoming releases by using the #TeensReadFeed hashtag. Be sure to follow me on Twitter to keep up to date on exciting bookish events and new releases (@ReadingReadingR)!
The picture above is a collage featuring the releases the Raincoast crew talked about that I’m the most excited for! Truth be told, this event featured some phenomenally sounding books, and I am looking forward to most of them! If you are intrigued by a title you see here, search he title and author up on Goodreads.
Even though I couldn’t attend the event in-person, Raincoast was so incredibly nice to send me a swag-bag!
The bag held a lot of great things, including some cool bookmarks and posters!
I also got some buttons, a Wattpad pop-socket, nail polish (!), a Throne of Glass pencil pouch, and a lovely pin!
The bag also obviously included some fantastic ARCs! The first ARC I received in my bag was THE GOOD LUCK GIRLS by Charlotte Nicole Davis. You can see the real cover in an image above. I am super excited to read this one, as it sounds really cool and different! This book is set to be out to the public on October 1, 2019.
The second ARC I received was THE GRACE YEAR by Kim Liggett. This was publicized as a re-imagining of The Handmaid’s Tale meets The Power, which sounds both intriguing and spooky. I cannot wait to read this one, as it was on my radar even before this event! They have even sold the movie rights to this novel already, and thee is a major motion picture in the works! This book is set to release on October 8, 2019.
The last ARC I received in my swag bag was HEARTS, STRINGS, AND OTHER BREAKABLE THINGS by Jacqueline Firkins (who is a Canadian author!). I believe Jacqueline spoke at the end of the event, but I stopped watching before she began due to prior commitments. Nevertheless, I am really looking forward to a cute fall contemporary! This book is set to be released on December 17, 2019.
I hope you enjoyed my mini recap of the Raincoast TeensRead Fall 2019 Preview! Thanks to Raincoast Books for the invite and the spectacular swag bag!
Good Night Book Owls!
