BTCYA Sydney; A Harper Collins Event

Between The Covers is a blog hosted by the Harper Collins Publishers team, hence the name BTCYA. I was so very thrilled to have been given an invite to this wonderful event and was beyond excited. This is the first time I've attended a blogging event and I went alone which was a bit intimidating as many of the old-time bloggers probably knew each other.

There were many giveaways, I was too embarrassed to raise my hand and answer the questions, but I was so jealous of the books that everyone got to choose. I didn't realise there were signed copies of Claudia Gray's Firebird Trilogy, I may have braved the embarrassment had I known LOL,

The host of the evening, Amanda and Tim were hilarious and I truly enjoyed the event. They ran through the books that are to be released in 2016 and a short snippet of what they thought of it. They seriously have the best job and they are total comedians! I'm sad to hear that they're leaving.

There were these gorgeous and delicious cupcakes, drinks and snacks.
And of course a table of books for sale courtesy of Dymocks. I really want to read The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand, Amanda and Tim really sold that book to me, and Peony Lantern by Frances Watts also sounds quite interesting.

We also got a very generous swag bag which included an ARC copy of Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club by Aussie Author Alison Goodman and Demon Road by Derek Landy, Author of the Skulduggery Pleasant Series, along with a beautiful poster of Claudia Gray's Ten Thousand Skies Above You, the second book to A Thousand Pieces of You, both of which I can't wait to read.

The tote bag is amazing, very sturdy and will definitely carry alot of books, which if you've been searching for a tote to carry multiple books you'd have found how hard that is to find.

Thanks so much for Harper Teen for the amazing event! And thanks so much Tim & Amanda for the very entertaining evening, I certainly would not have spent my Friday night any other way ;)
