CrimeFest 2015 (Or The Time of My Life!)

This year I actually made it to CrimeFest 2015 held at the Royal Marriott Hotel in Bristol, and as you can imagine, I fangirled my way through it. I got to meet some of my favourite authors and bloggers, and I was asked a few times if Books & Reviews is till running, which I can say yes. My PhD, a bad break up and lots of travelling have kept me busy for the last months, but now I’m back!

And here they are, the pictures of me with every author, blogger and publisher who spent more than 5 minutes with me:

    1. Thank you, MarinaSofia, and those are the ones where I don’t look crazy at all. I hadn’t smiled so much in my whole life!

    1. Thank you, Cleo. I had a great time, and I hope you can make it there for CrimeFest16 so we can have a drink together.

      1. I want to/will attend one year. I just need to do a better job at planning for these events. I’m not an author aspiring or otherwise. Do you think readers can get something out of it as well?

        1. Well, I think it’s pretty much reader-oriented, but at least you’ll have a great time meeting everyone.

  1. Hey Elena, I don’t think I have seen a photo of you before, so this was really nice to see. Glad you had a good time!

    1. Rikki!!! I can’t believe you still come here every once in a while. Thank you, and yes, I was finally brave enough to post some pictures of me online 😛

      1. Sure I come here once in a while. Just because I don’t blog about books anymore doesn#t mean I am giving up on reading blogs (or books, for that matter), 🙂

  2. I saw on Twitter that you got to attend Crimefest, and was happy to know you were having such a great time. Hope things are well, and that the reading is wonderful.

  3. These pictures are great! I didn’t take nearly enough photos. Crimefest really is a lot of fun, and I’m glad you had a good time too! Love the pub quiz photos. I was on the newbie table beyond yours (Team Terrible Toby) – it’s a shame we didn’t get to meet! 🙂

Have something to say?
