Hello guys, hope all is well and you are reading all sorts!
I thought I would do a short blog post about a book signing I went to the other day in Waterstones Piccadilly.
I was perusing through Instagram a few days ago and happened upon Adam Silvera’s latest post. Not only was it his birthday in June 7th but he was coming to London for the first time ever. He was going to be in Waterstones answering all our questions, revealing his UK edition book cover for They Both Die At The End and just generally being awesome.
I was nervous to go because I was going by myself and also meeting and speaking with someone who I hold in such high regard. However, I should not have felt like this in the first place. Not only was the atmosphere friendly but it was so cozy!! I even made friends there, I wasn’t the only fan girl there apparently.
He spoke about all three of his books and the inspirations for them. His latest inspiration for History Is All You Left Me was inspired by a break up – very Taylor Swift haha!
I liked that he was really honest with his answers regarding some of his main characters mental health issues and his candid talks about sexuality in YA. I also loved that he has an unabashed love for Harry Potter, especially Cedric Diggory… haha!
