Did your fave make our Top 5 Bookish Events of the Week?

You’re in for a TREAT

There’s something about this time of year that’s just a bit depressing. Christmas and New Year are done, the January Blues are no longer an excuse and summer is so far away in actually hurts to think about…

Thank goodness for books. And authors. And bookshops. And BOOKS.

Hiding in a warm bookshop on a cold, grisly evening is actually the best cure for everything ever. Scientifically proven by…us?

1. Fantastic Teen Reads with VE Schwab, Susan Dennard and more!

Spend an evening in New York City with some of THE best YA authors out there. We really wish ‘Books of Wonder’ wasn’t like 3500 miles away from London…

2. Literally Literary

If you’re a budding writer, then you NEED to get yourself to Brighton in a few weeks. Jenny MacLachlan, Nikki Sheehan, Tommy Sissons and Hannah Vincent will be running a writing workshop for free! And there’ll be a Q&A too.

3. The Festival at Hampstead Theatre

The Festival is back this weekend and we are EXCITED. From Shakespeare and rap to theatre and fashion – there’s genuinely something for everyone at Hampstead Theatre.

4. Girls’ Night Out with Sophie Kinsella

Talk about a dream night out! Food, drink, a goody bag AND a Q&A with Sophie Kinsella – it’s perfection. If you’re in upstate New York, this is the event you need to get yourself to.

5. Stephanie Garber Caraval Tour

Stephanie Garber’s totally intoxicating ‘Caraval’ is finally out and Stephanie is heading out on tour in the US. We’re totally jealous here on the other side of the pond, but don’t worry, she’s heading over the the UK in a few months!

Are you heading to any amazing bookish events this month?
