Throne of Glass, Disney Movies & Fangirling – Sarah J Maas at #BathKidsLitFest

October 13, 2016

I still can’t believe I actually met the queen herself…Sarah J Maas!

Three hours later and i’m still suffering from severe fangirl symptoms. She was so funny and down to earth, and i’m so glad I actually got to see her. She spoke about many things from what inspired her to write Throne of Glass and her badass heroines growing up, to her favourite Disney movies and hot guys in her series!

After her talk there was a book signing and my friend and I were lucky enough to be close to the door so we only had to wait fifteen or so minutes which wasn’t too strenuous. When it came to my turn, I forgot everything I wanted to say to her and I was just too happy that I was actually there, and she was talking to me. Overall, I’m really grateful I got to see her in real life and I hope I get to again one day.

October 10, 2016

I only found out we were going to see Chris Riddle a few hours before the event started. We got off to a late start so we had to hastily rush into The Forum. As soon as I walked in I was taken aback. There was an immense screen above the stage, and in front […]

Michael Morpurgo talked about his relatively new book called Such Stuff – it is about the story behind the story. It sounds really good.

“Danger Really Is Everywhere!”

I went to see ‘Danger Really Is Everywhere’ by David O’Doherty and Chris Judge. I’d already read their first book ‘Danger Is Everywhere’ and I got the latest book on the day. The books are funny because they tell you silly stuff about how to avoid danger that means you can’t actually do anything. I […]
