Authors who invite readers to parties
Parties are happening in books
There are some great fictional parties in books. I have been to some of the best parties in my life in books. No- one ever forgets the wild parties of The Great Gatsby for example, but I’m talking about some of the ones I have read more recently. Houses that were built or redesigned to host parties the attendees would never forget.
See which invitations from the below, you would like to receive:
A remote lodge in the Scottish Highlands is the setting for this party. It’s been recently refurbished to be THE place for the best parties with the best connected people. Never mind if the locals are opposed to it. What do they know. You, the reader, are the special guest for opening night. Wait , what’s been found in the nearby lake? A body?
In a remote hunting lodge, deep in the Scottish wilderness, old friends gather for New Year. Not all of them leave the party alive…You will be pleased to hear that the lodge featured in the novel is not real. Although it was very much inspired by Carrour Lodge in the Scottish Highlands as this is where the author visited herself.
Get a bit of sunshine and head over to Greece for a different kind of party. Someone is getting married. It’s supposed to be the happiest day of their lives. It’s certainly going to be the most memorable….
The best parties are often those at university, right? Well in this nove, the party happens long after the studying days have ended. At Ben’s 40th birthday party, the cream of the British establishment gathers in a haze of champagne, drugs and glamour. Martin once again feels that pang of not quite belonging. His wife Lucy has her reservations, too. There is something unnerving in the air. But Ben wouldn’t do anything to damage their friendship. Would he?
A remote lodge in the Welsh countryside is the setting for this party. It’s said to be THE place for the best parties with the best connected people. Rhys Lloyd has a house full of guests and is your host for this reading. This will be the party to end all parties.
You, the reader, are the special guest for tonight.
Wait until August as Ruth Ware and The IT Girl are having a party at a college in Oxford so there is something else to look forward to!
Happy partying! Watch out for more party events on The BookTrail this week.
