Hey all! This post is a little late, but on September 10, 2017, we attended HarperCollins Canada’s YA book preview (#FrenzyPresents) in Toronto. This is the 3rd time we’ve attended a preview at HCC, and this one was definitely the best yet. (Why? Read on!)
First, we arrived just after 2pm, when the event was due to start. Luckily we got there before it officially started, grabbed some snacks, and took in the sights.
Next, Ashley from HCC introduced herself and got into the preview with the YA team. This preview was much shorter because of a special something afterwards!
Here are the books they discussed that we’re most excited about:
–Zenith by Lindsay Cummings & Sasha Alsberg (Sasha gave this 5*)
–The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli
–This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis (about a girl named Sasha who absorbed her twin in the womb … lol. Almost us?)
–Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody
–They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
–Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows
–Kat and Meg Conquer the World by Anna Priemaza (ADHD + Anxiety rep!)
After the preview, we got our EpicReads tote bags filled with awesome books!! The total book haul from both of us is here. We also got “Blind Dates w/ a Book” and picked up Eliza and Her Monsters and The Gentlemen’s Guide!

Last but not least, three AMAZING authors (Becky Albertalli, Julie Murphy, and Angie Thomas) were in town for a Canadian tour and were at the HCC offices to sign books for all the awesome bloggers/booktubers who came out to the event!!
Here’s a pic we got w/ Angie!! Meeting her was surreal, considering THUG is my (Sarena’s) fave book of the year.
Plus, there were special cookies made for the event!! They were so good 🙂
