Cheaper than a movie ticket, a trade paperback, or a big tub of ice cream…and yet so much more fun! Also, Gabby has promised us a literary meat tray.
Are you suffering from post-RWA blues? Do you wish your life was filled with even more romance? Well, four girls have come together to make sure that Sydney is host to another romance event this year!
Orchid & Peach Cocktails is a blog hosted by myself (Gabby), Rudi (creator of The Most Awesome Shoes in the Universe), Sam, and Sarah, UTS students (and one graduate) who meet every week to talk about the books we love and the books we love to hate.
Upon attending the Sydney Writers’ Festival this year and sitting in on a less-than-informed panel of not-quite-romance authors, we decided to act. We would no longer sit by the wayside and yearn for events to come to us! Nay! We would host the events ourselves!
Thus, Throbbing Hearts was born.
Held at UTS, Throbbing Hearts will be based on those romance novels that were voted the top 100 by All About Romance, with a few new questions thrown into the mix (because we can’t forget about Nalini Singh and Sylvia Day).
Tickets are $10 and teams will be formed with a max of 6 people. There will be wine, snacks, and dear god, so many prizes. Trust me on this one. There are books to be had for all.
So come along and support your fellow romance die-hards! Smart Bitch Sarah will be attending as well as Book Thingo’s very own Kat!
You can buy tickets at www.throbbinghearts.eventbrite.com.au
When: Friday 30th August, 6:30pm
Where: UTS, Peter Johnson Building
What you will get: the joy of being surrounded by countless romance lovers just like you, wine
Book Thingo bloggers will be in attendance, so make sure you come and say hi!
