Indigo's YA Preview Event Recap | Fall 2017


On Tuesday, August 29, I attended Indigo's Fall YA Preview at Indigo's home office in Toronto. I love heading to their office and discovering upcoming books and at times authors!


I found the seating arrangement this year much better than last. This year, there were three different tables instead of one long table, which created more leg room and space for our personal belongings under and on top of the table.

Tina at Indigo presented, along with a few other coworkers, Kate, Brandon, Chi Ho, and Chelsey, all Category Managers, and a few Chapters employees from around the GTA talked about upcoming books and events this Fall/Winter.

P.S I always have an issue taking pictures from this angle! They're always dark and very warm in colour.




I read more contemporary than fantasy so it seems that Spring Previews are more my thing. There are always more books I'm excited for and being talked about during the event. There were a hand full of books mentioned I'm excited for being released this Fall/Winter 2017/18 but definitely not even half to what I'm looking forward to. I have another post coming later this week talking about the books mention and which ones I'm excited for along with Indigo's upcoming events.

Indigo also always sets up a bookshelf of books we cannot take and it usually holds books we all want! Here are a few shelves from that bookshelf.







The line up of books provided this year seems to be mostly of unknown authors rather than well-known authors with highly anticipated titles for the following season (but there may be a chance we received a bunch of debut authors). I don't read much fantasy so you might think, "Well, you don't read fantasy, maybe you just don't know what's going on in the genre" but I spoke with some other bloggers and they seemed to say the same thing. Also, I like to think I'm in the know about hyped books in most genres. Most books up for grabs were lesser known to me than the last few Indigo YA Previews. However, in addition to seeing some of my anticipated releases, I discovered a few new books I added to my TBR.

This year Indigo's YA Preview ended earlier than last year. I remember commuting and leaving the event at 9 PM but this year the event ended at 8 PM. I'm unsure if last year just ran late, Indigo made sure of preventing that this year, which is understandable or there was less to present this year.

My next Indigo YA Preview post will be of all the books Indigo is excited for being released in Fall/Winter 2017/18!
