And a weekend of fun

Not to be overshadowed by World Book Week and International Women’s Day, Saturday had 2 events planned.

The first was the Forbidden Planet book signing by V. E. Schwab. Meaning I, of course, picked up the FP grey edition of The Near Witch (or the Dull London version in Lila Bard terms). I even got Tiny Satan’s copy of City of Ghosts personalised (in an attempt to retain my crown as his best mum).

Complete with gorgeous hidden art under the stunning dust cover, pretty green endpaper maps and a matching ribbon bookmark

A quick stop for lunch then off to Piccadilly Waterstones and the Conversation with Melinda Salisbury and Samantha Shannon.

First lets talk about the beauty of the stage setting and theme for the evening. All the plant based Vespus inspired decor and drink embellishment was fantastic. Oh and how about cupcakes? Yes please!

After discussing powers, nature based disasters, rebellion and royalty, friendships, and the desire to see nature rise up in its inherent savagery and take over the world, was book signing and cupcakes in the queue. Naturally we made sure to get one State of Sorrow and one Song of Sorrow for science (and photos).
