Scholastic's Book Blogger feast: A bookish day in London

Last Wednesday, I received an email from Rachel Phillips, Publicity Manager for Scholastic's Children's Books, inviting me to attend a 'Bloggers Book Feast' in London.
I'm very glad to say I got the chance to attend! As it was my first event, I was pretty nervous, but all the other Bloggers and Scholastic staff were really welcoming, and I soon felt comfortable.
Some of the fabulous Bloggers I met at the event!

To start, the Scholastic staff gave an overview of the exciting bookish ventures coming our way in the upcoming months of 2015.
Scholastic were generous enough to give everyone who attended a bag full of books/swag!
Books, Scholastic notebook & bookish postcards

Postcards of all the books to look out for in the next few months!

7 Days by Eve Ainsworth

Publication Date: February 2015

Genre: Young Adult Contemporary

'One Bully. One Target. Seven Days'

Jess's life is difficult enough without Kez picking on her – it’s turning school from a safe place into a nightmare. Kez has plenty of problems too but she finds comfort in knowing she is better off than Jess - or so she thinks.

7 Days shows the effects of bullying, from the perspective of both the victim and the bully. A compelling and eye opening read, you won't be able to put it down until you've finished.
