January finally brought another bloggers meeting to us in Manchester – and it was long awaited. I really love hanging out with all the bloggers for a few hours and finding out whichever publisher that hosts us is doing at the moment. It’s such a fun afternoon, and the day after the Stripes Equali-Tea event, i got another bookish day!
This weeks top 5 Wednesday is about my favourite publishers. This is quite a strange thing for a top 5 Wednesday i think, as we usually think about the books that we’ve read and what did or didn’t like about them. This week i’ll be thinking about the publishing houses and what great books i think they produce. If you browse through your shelves often, you’ll notice that many of your favourite books are all from the same publishers. They generally have a set ‘type’ of novel they are looking for, and someone who often reads the same genre will be used to buying from the same publisher knowingly. As a bit of a creative writing nerd (i studied it at university), publishing houses intrigue me. Here are my favourite publishing houses.
