Telling Tales | The “I got a new bookcase, so I must buy books” Haul!

So, this month I’ve spent some time rearranging my room and I happened to find more space for bookcases, so naturally, I bought some. This meant I had to buy some books for them, of course. Here’s what I bought!

July ’18 | Wrap Up

This month has definitely been an improvement compared the past few, having felt more motivated to read and connected to this blog. Things have definitely improved mentally also, minus a few slip ups, which I’m sure has something to do with it. Things are finally looking up!  Continue reading “July ’18 | Wrap Up”

Top Five Tuesday | Authors I’m hoping to meet at YALC 2018

So, this week is the one we’ve been counting down for since last year; YALC (Young Adult Literature Convention) and LFCC (London Film & Comic Con) Weekend! This year is going to be my first time attending both, even though I’ve been monitoring it for years, but I’ve finally been able to find the time and cash to attend.

However, as I’m attending the Young Adult Literature Convention (YALC) for the first time at the end of this month, I thought I’d compose a list of books I’d like to read before the event. All these authors will be attending the convention and are holding a signing, so I thought it was best for me to become acquainted with their work beforehand. I’ve already read four books for the event:

But here’s the others I’d like to get through.

June ’18 | To Read

As April and May’s reading didn’t exactly go to plan, I’ve decided to scrap it completely and start afresh this June. My TBR has grown quite a bit since and I’m extremely excited to start some new titles. Most of them aren’t as big as what I’d usually read, but after falling into a bit of slump with the stress of university, it’s probably best to start small before building up to more bigger texts.  Continue reading “June ’18 | To Read”
