Last Night (Monday 12th of August) at 6pm I found myself at Penguin Teen’s Australia Live even in Melbourne, after being at school all day so excited for this event. I was a little nervous as this was my first ever book even and first ever PTL, I had no idea what was going to happen. As soon as I stepped in the Doors I was in heaven. It was mesmerizing seeing all these books, and desk (that may sound very very wired) but, it was an amazing place. I felt that I was at home. I walk down the Stairs and into the room where the event was being held. We were greeted but the lovely PTA team. Whom were smiling brightly.
After about an 30min break we all sat back in our chairs but then Felicity said there were VA badges and books marks, I have never gotten up quicker from my seat in my life. After all us fangirls calm down we started to talk about upcoming releases for the rest of 2013. The Fall of five by Pittacus Lore, Daylighters by Rachel Caine, Heroes of Olympus: House of Hades by Rich Riordan and talked about the major cliff hanger he left in the last books and how we need it now! haha Champion by Marie Lu and the list goes on. But Finally we got to the part where most of us VA fans waited for The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead when the Cover come onto the screen you hear the sequels from the fangirls. Felicity went on to tell us that we would want to throw our book in many parts of the book and this tore me to screeds, but then she said there are part you will be very happy about. At first she said that were was not a copy of The Fiery Heart in the whole office, but then she admitted that she had a locked copy on her Ipad, and her being amazing said she would read us an extract, which pretty much tore me to bits and I need The Fiery Heart NOW!!!!!! we talked about how Sydney is different from Rose and she is Brian Smart not like Rose whom is Battle/War Smart, and I agreed with what Felicity said it was refreshing and nice to have Sydney as the main character.
Overall I had an amazing night, with book loves like myself. I am so happy that i went. I enjoyed it immensely. I would go again again and again. The PTA team are all lovely and I thank them for all the hard work they put into PTA Live Melbourne. I know that everyone enjoyed it. I love to thank Penguin for opening the doors for all us book lovers and aspiring writers. Thank you so much again
