So, on the 26th, I went to a book club hosted by Lush in London. It was amazing. Not only did it smell great, but there were cupcakes, drinks, lovely people, a hilarious author, lush goodies and a copy of The Summer Of Impossible Things.
I met Nicola from Fantastic Book Dragon and Ana from Fangirl Since 88 when I got there, and Nicola very luckily managed to get right to the front and save Ana and I both a seat, which we were pretty happy about! Soon after, Anna James and Rowan Coleman were sat down and ready to start. Anna started by introducing both herself and the author of the book, Rowan, and then Rowan read an extract from her book that had me very eager to begin reading.
Rowan was then asked a series of questions that Anna had prepared, and her answers were brilliant. She either had everyone hanging on her every word or laughing. There was something about practising kissing on a poster at the age of 11, if I recall correctly!
The audience were then able to ask some questions, which was great. I unfortunately didn’t have any as I haven’t yet read the book, but I can guarantee I’ll have tons once I’ve finished the book. After the questions had all been answered, Rowan signed some books and we got some lush goodies!
Overall, it was a really great night and I can’t wait to read The Summer Of Impossible Things! I definitely plan on going again in the next few months.
