On our way to Waterstones (this of course was our top priority) I got distracted by the M & M's store and I knew I had to go in. I was like a little child when I got in, they had four floors of M & M goodies, souvenirs and adorable cuddly toys. The best thing was they had this gorgeous smell of M & M's wafting around everywhere you went and of course before we left we had to get our photo taken with Mr. M & M!
Waterstones Piccadilly is the biggest book store in Europe, I was hoping they would have a massive YA section, it was quite big and Rachel and I were quite surprised by the Aussie books they had, we both kind of got excited when we saw Kirsty Eagar's Raw Blue on the shelves! I think I was in so much awe of their variety of books that I totally forgot to take any photos of their books, but Rachel did so we will try and share some with you at a later point. Rachel and I had a good time discussing which covers were better, the US or UK, I highly favoured the US ones of course. After spending a while eyeing up the books I was quite good as I only walked out with two; Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins and Hold Still by Nina Lacour (my intention was only to leave with one, but when I got to the tills, the books had a buy one get one half off offer, and I knew I couldn't pass!). Rachel was so good as she resisted the temptation to grab at all the pretty covers, I think I need to take some pointers from her.
The rest of the day was spent gossiping about books and munching food. I'm glad that I got the chance to meet Rachel, because I had the best day ever.
