Ottawa Blogger Mix and Mingle + Giveaway

A group of Ottawa bloggers got together to talk books, and have a fun afternoon. We were joined by the lovely Allison Van Diepen. She was lovely and took the time to answer questions and mingled with all the bloggers.

We discussed love triangles, cover redesigns in the middle of series, books we are excited for, and blogging in general. Ciara from Lost at Midnight reviews was the only one to take photos, so I will link her recap once she has it posted.

I would like to thank all the bloggers that showed up! If you want to check out their websites I have provided links below:

  1. It sounds lovely to be able to get together with other bloggers to hang out and talk. The book sounds interesting too, thanks for doing the giveaway!

    1. Whoops, I commented before I saw the question! I've never been to a blogger meet up before, but I think I'd just like to be able to talk about new books that I've read and loved with other people who appreciate them as much as me.

  2. Sounds like so much fun! I have not met any other book bloggers yet...I am hoping to attend BEA but not sure yet. I don't know of any other bloggers near me (in upstate NY) but I am always on the lookout in case I can meet up with them in person!

  3. I haven't ever attended one before, but I want to. How do you find out about them?

  4. I haven't yet, but I would love to get to go to one!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  5. It was so fun to meet everyone and talk books! I'm already looking forward to next year!


I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
