Event Recap and Giveaway | Frenzy Presents 2014

Earlier this summer, I was invited to join the ladies at HCC Frenzy and a whole bunch of other bloggers for an afternoon of books, treats, and a ton of YA themed fun. Yesterday was this event; Frenzy Presents. This is what my day looked like!

After getting ready for the event, my dad and I drove down to the nearest subway station, and took the subway downtown. It was great getting to ride the subway with my dad, who grew up in the city. He loves getting to do cool stuff like this with me, and he really loves hearing about books and the reading I do, even if he's not a big reader himself.

When I got to the building, I saw a few familiar faces, like Giselle from Book Nerd Canada, and Becca from OMFG Books. I've got to see them a few times, at signings, events, and blogger meet ups in the past. 

When we got upstairs to the Harper Collins Canada offices, that's when my excitement level went through the roof. I want to go into publishing, and getting to be in the offices was so much fun. Then I met Caitlin, from The YA Bookworm Blogger, and Jen from Pop Goes the Reader, who I spent the majority of the afternoon with. 

We all gathered in, grabbed some snacks, and sat down to listen to the lovely Frenzy ladies talk about the new fall and winter releases! Here are the books that they talked about;




These books all sounded absolutely amazing, and I would definately find out some more about them, and add them all to your TBR List!

So, once we finished talking about these books, the ladies brought in a guest to be a quiz moderator; Eve Silver! Eve is the author of The Game series, which so far has 2 books, Rush and Push. She lives in Toronto, and she was so much fun! My team, which was comprised of Caitlin, Jen, Becca from OMFG Books, and Sobhian from Conversations of a Reading Addict, and I, were pretty good, if I do say so myself! It was a lot of fun :D

After all of that, we got to mill around a bit, get books signed by Eve, and grab swag bags! Here's what I got in my swag bag!


The Perfectionists by Sara Shepard
Rebel by Amy Tintera
Rush by Eve Silver - Signed!
Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

Divergent DVD and tattoos

I had an absolute blast, and it was such a great way to finish off the summer! Thanks again to all the amazing bloggers that came, to Eve Silver for being of Quiz Master (and recreating the cover of The Selection perfectly!) and to all the ladies at Harper Collins Canada. You guys are all amazing, and I love you all.

I also made a video update and recap! Watch here:
