Here’s a pretty awesome campaign by Simon and Schuster Canada for Valentine’s Day 2016. Valentine’s Day is for spending with your true love, so what better way to spend the day than with a book?
Every day leading up to Valentine’s Day, Simon and Schuster Canada will be sharing excerpts, quotes and other bookish fun on their Facebook event leading up to February 14th, so check it out if you’re looking for ideas on which books to spend the big day with.
Some ideas they’ve suggested include:
- For horror fans: The Damned by Andrew Pyper – one of the creepiest books I’ve ever read (my review here)
- For historical fiction fans: The Sisters of Versailles by Sally Christie – historical fiction in the tradition of The Other Boleyn Girl
- For booklovers with children who want to combat the #WheresRey phenomenon: Bloom by Doreen Cronin – a children’s picture book (ages 4- 8) about girl power
And if you’re looking for a bit of a longer term love affair with books this year, check out the Simon and Schuster Canada Look Book, filled with samples of their Spring 2016 Fiction catalogue! It’s free to download on several ebook formats.
My personal Look Book highlights? I love Iain Reid’s memoir The Truth About Luck, and his upcoming I’m Thinking of Ending Things has been listed by the Globe and Mail as one of the most anticipated Canadian books in 2016. I’m also a big fan of Peggy Blair’s work, and am pretty excited to find out what happens next to Inspector Ramirez and his team. Keep an eye out as well on my blog for forthcoming reviews of Glory Over Everything and Kay’s Lucky Coin Variety, both of which have caught my eye and are currently on my TBR.
Thanks to Simon and Schuster Canada for this fun idea, and may you all have a bookish Valentine’s Day!
