Letterbox Love #25

Letterbox Love is a meme hosted by Lynsey of Narratively Speaking whereby book lovers can exhibit the books they received this week.

I’m going to try and post a weekly book haul so that I don’t have as many to talk about at once! We’ll see how that goes…

Every Day by David Levithan

What did you receive this week? Have you read any of my books and do you think it should be at the top or the bottom of my to read pile?  How do you like a book haul vlog as opposed to an actual post? I’d love to hear from you! 

Cover Reveal: Geek Girl 2 + Geeky Things I Have Planned

I am absolutely BOUNCING to reveal the cover for Geek Girl 2: Model Misfit by Holly Smale! 

geekgirl2

It’s everything I expected for her sequel: funny, emotional and geeky! I adore the yellow, and I love that they’ve kept a good theme with the first one. In my review for Geek Girl, I gave it 4 sofas. It is one of my favourite UKYA books, and I won’t hesistate to mention Geek Girl everywhere I go. It’s one of my most-wanted books of 2013, so I encourage you to preorder GG2 now, and go read the first one if you haven’t already!

To celebrate the geekiness that is Model Misfit, I thought I’d share with you some geeky things I’ve got planned for the rest of the year!

geeky plans

 
 

1.  In September, they are having a screening of Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark in the grounds of a local castle. I’ve never been to an outside film screening before, so I’m really excited! I’ve also not seen Indiana Jones before (I know, right) and it seems the perfect way to end the summer 🙂 Lets just hope its not raining…

2. Harry Potter Studio Tour. I attended this with one of my friends last year, but I snapped up the opportunity to go again! I don’t think I will ever get enough Harry Potter, and there is SO MUCH AWESOMENESS that you can’t really take it all it at once.

3. Bookish things! They are many amazing book-related events coming up, and I adore attending them. Not only to meet authors, but I love spending time with other bookish people, and have made some really lovely friends through these events. Some of the authors I am planning on seeing are David Levithan, Phil Earle, Sarah J Maas, RJ Palacio, Laura Jarrett, Sally Gardner, Lauren Kate and Tanya Byrne.

4. ?? 

This is where you help me out! What geeky events would you recommend (preferably UK based)? I’m always looking to add things to my list so I’d love to hear geeky things you have planned. Also let me know if you’ve been somewhere lately and thought it was awesome!
