Waiting on Wednesday (160)


Wednesday was created by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It's a weekly post for you to share what upcoming books you can't wait for!

I'm definitely looking forward to The Last Star by Rick Yancey.  This is out 24th May 2016.

The Last Star (The 5th Wave, #3)
Synopsis
We’re here, then we’re gone, and that was true before they came. That’s always been true. The Others didn’t invent death; they just perfected it. Gave death a face to put back in our face, because they knew that was the only way to crush us. 

It won’t end on any continent or ocean, no mountain or plain, jungle or desert. It will end where it began, where it had been from the beginning, on the battlefield of the last beating human heart.

What are you waiting on?

MBOB: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them

A copy of Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them resides in almost every wizarding household in the country. Now Muggles too have the chance to discover where the Quintaped lives, what the Puffskein eats and why it is best not to leave milk out for a Knarl.

Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to Comic Relief, which means that the pounds and Galleons you exchange for it will do magic beyond the powers of any wizard. If you feel that this is insufficient reason to part with your money, I can only hope that passing wizards feel more charitable if they see you being attacked by a Manticore.

- Albus Dumbledore




I'm definitely looking forward to this!

Waiting on Wednesday (159)


Wednesday was created by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It's a weekly post for you to share what upcoming books you can't wait for!

Absolutely loved reading Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine and was super excited when she revealed the next book in The Great Library Series, Paper and Fire.  The expected publication date for this is 5th July 2016.


Synopsis
With an iron fist, The Great Library controls the knowledge of the world, ruthlessly stamping out all rebellion, forbidding the personal ownership of books in the name of the greater good.

Jess Brightwell has survived his introduction to the sinister, seductive world of the Library, but serving in its army is nothing like he envisioned. His life and the lives of those he cares for have been altered forever. His best friend is lost, and Morgan, the girl he loves, is locked away in the Iron Tower and doomed to a life apart.

Embarking on a mission to save one of their own, Jess and his band of allies make one wrong move and suddenly find themselves hunted by the Library’s deadly automata and forced to flee Alexandria, all the way to London.

But Jess’s home isn’t safe anymore. The Welsh army is coming, London is burning, and soon, Jess must choose between his friends, his family, or the Library willing to sacrifice anything and anyone in the search for ultimate control…

What are you waiting on?

Brisbane Writer's Festival Recap


 Brisbane Writer's Festival was an awesome week of Authors, both published and upcoming, writers finding their feet, students who enjoy a good read.  It was a mix of everything I love about the festival!!

I did a couple of masterclasses during the week.  An editing class with Gavin Grant, and a Supernatural masterclass with Mike Jones.  Both were incredibly informative and fun!

On Saturday I went to see the panel This Sucks: Why we Will Never Tire of Vampires with  Holly Black, Kelly Link and Trent Jamieson.  It was amazing to hear each Author talk about this!

I had a bit of time spare before Cassandra Clare and Holly Black talked on Love YA so I sat in on David Burton, Eliza Henry Jones and Kristina Schulz talking about the pathways to publication.  It was a very interesting chat and I definitely took a lot away from this.

On Sunday, I went to Shadow Hunted. Ask me anything with Cassandra Clare.  There were so many questions and a lot of secrets revealed.

After Shadowhunted we got to listen to Trent Jamieson talk about his latest release Day Boy.  I bought this from his book release and had it signed then.  Loved the book.

At the end of the day we got to hear Holly Black and Cassandra Clare talk about their latest book Magisterium. 

Admittedly, I haven't finished reading Magisterium but it is pretty good so far, and from what I heard at the chat it's only going to get better!!


My partner met me after the panel and we had dinner.  It was a rather long day but definitely an enjoyable one.  The walk back to the car was very pretty.

Definitely looking forward to going to next years Brisbane Writer's Festival. 
In November the Toowoomba Writer's Festival will be happening.  I can't wait for the timetable to go up for this.

These are the books that I got from the Brisbane Writer's Festival.  I've been a bit slack.  I had hoped to have up my photos of the Authors we seen this week but it looks like it might happen this week coming.
