On September 10th, a group of YA enthusiasts (bloggers, booksellers, etc.) invaded the Bloor/Gladstone branch of the Toronto Public Library to sit around, enjoy each other’s company, munch on snacks, and (of course) talk books! Raincoast always has a ton of awesome titles on their schedule so of course I was bouncing up and down in the weeks prior to this event.
I always conserve my allotted sugar intake for these types of events because they have ALL THE BEST SNACKS. After we picked up our sugar and got settled in, we connected with the book friends attending in BC via Google Hangout and the games began!
As usual, Raincoast provided us with a printout of all the titles covered so that we could follow along and make notes as we went along. It’s extra helpful when I’m putting these lists together because my eyes get SO BIG at these events and there is no way I’d remember everything without it.
Without further ado, here are my most anticipated titles for Winter and Spring 2017!
Windwitch by Susan Dennard
Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall
Life in a Fishbowl by Len Vlahos
