Book Festival P1

Hello! So sadly, there will be no miss March calendar, as I have been to busy with school work to create one, BUT! Do not fear as I am planning an awesome miss April ^_^

Recently there have been a whole heap if book festivals in my area, some in libraries and some in HUGE convention centers. The most recent largest book festival was the Lifeline Bookfest, which are a series of book festivals (some of the biggest in the world!) spread across Queensland, Australia, and all proceeds go to charity. So of course I had to go, and my family and I were there from 11 am - 4 pm (ish). I was starving and tired by 1 pm, but shared a small Greek salad and carried on booking my way through the (what felt like hundreds) of aisles.

Sooo, to show you some of the books I found, I thought I would break it up into separate posts, since I think cramming all the books into one post is a bit overwhelming. 

These are some of my favorites of the books I found! and some flowers I was given (so pretty, I have now put them in a flower press).

This is an awesome little book I found in the $2 section! Of course I was originally attracted to it by its cover, but it is actually really interesting! It's full of 'creative non-fiction', basically little creative essays on moments from people's lives. It is great for flicking through and having a short read.

I FOUND IT. I have been looking for this book for ages and found it. IN THE $5 SECTION (!!!) It is so pretty and fun to read. And the pictures and illustrations are so cool!

And lastly is 'Like I give a Frock' which is full of funky illustrations and fashion anecdotes. Such as a little story about the meaning of deja shoe! (read to find out...)

And of course, I had to include a few close ups of this pretty pink flower! Look out for Book Festival P2! Have you been to any book festivals recently? x
