July 21, 2020 Uncategorized 11

Happy Tuesday! Today I’ve decided to start participating in Top Ten Tuesday, formerly hosted by Jamie at The Broke and the Bookish, now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.
For upcoming topics, and more information on Top Ten Tuesday, visit Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.
Today’s topic is:
Bookish Events I want to attend!
this week’s topic was submitted by Nandini @ Unputdownable Books and is: Book Events/Festivals I’d Love to Go to Someday (Real or Fictional). Here are some Events that I would love to attend! I’ve also linked to each of the events website if you would like to learn more!

1. Book Expo (USA)
I feel like this is a given! Every single year I have extreme book nerd envy that I have not be to BEA…maybe one day….


Any event that is specifally YA centric is an event that I know I would love. I have wanted to go to YALLFEST/YALLWEST for so long now. I hope I can make it happen some day

3. Paris Book Festival (France) 

I love the idea of book festivals around the world and Paris seems like such a romantic spot to have a book festival. I would love to go back there and book out!

4. YALC (England) 

British Young Adult book conference! Yes please! PLus, this one is hosted by London Film and Comic Con…so yes! Sign me up!

5. Edinburgh International Book Festival (Scotland)
I have never been to Scotland, so this is must visit for me!

6. Texas Book Festival (USA) 

This looks like a huge festival. Plus, I have never been to Texas and I would love to visit.

7.  The Library of Congress National Book Festival (USA)
The history nerd in me is totally geeking out at the idea of this festival!

8. ALA (USA) 

I have gone to ALA midwinter once in the past when it was in Orlando and it was so much fun! I would love to go to the summer event at some point, because I have heard it is even bigger than the midwinter!

9. International Agatha Christie Festival (UK)
This sounds like a huge murder mystery party….and like so so much fun!!

10. Fandomfest (USA) 

This is a pop culture lover’s dream! There are tons of different tv, movie and book fandom’s celebrated here and I think I need to go!

    I haven’t been to any of those yet, just RT back in the day and local group author signings. But I hope to go to Apollycon some year *fingers crossed*!

    I never realized how many bookish events there were! I mean, obviously, I knew there’d be a few but ahh this weeks topic is so cool. I hope someday you get to attend these events and that they are just as magical as you’ve always hoped!
