As you may already be aware, it is summer time. I have four months off. That is a lot of time. Fortunately I have some amazing things coming up that I can’t wait for. Of course most of them are book related. I thought l would share them with you.
Meeting Cassandra Clare
This week is Cassie’s City of Lost Soul’s UK book tour. As many of my favourite authors live in the US, they don’t frequently come over here. So when I found out Cassandra Clare was coming, who is one of my all-time favourite authors, I grabbed at it. Originally she was going to Wales, with no guarantee of anywhere else, so I splashed out to head to the Hay festival. It would have been cheaper to go to London but never mind. It will be a fun time away for the Jubilee weekend. Book signing, Q&A, Reading from Clockwork Princess. What more do you want? Can’t Wait!
As you may or not be aware, Leavesden Studios, where the Harry Potter films were made, has been converted into a public exhibition. This is an opportunity not to be missed. I’m looking forward to visiting all the sets, and seeing the props and costumes.
Florida and Harry Potter Wizarding World
I’ve wanted to go to Universal Studios since the park opened. The problem with Florida is it is a little far away. However, we are now going to Florida on a family holiday. The first two days are at Universal Studios, and then we are spending a week at the coast; Harry Potter, then a week of reading books. Can’t wait. My friend is coming with us too and I am dragging her on all the rides.
On a non-book related topic, it probably hasn’t failed to escape your notice, especially if you live in the UK that the Olympics are coming to London this year. And my dad managed to get tickets. This is another once in a life time opportunity. Especially since the park is not that far away from my parent’s house.
This summer is going to be one of awesomeness. Are you doing anything awesome this summer?
