Hi everyone, and happy Sunday! Today’s post is coming a little late because I’ve hauled myself to the last day of YALC, back to my parent’s place, onto the train, and am finally back home! This wI’ll be a super YALC-heavy post, but not a full round up. I’ll post that once I’ve recovered. Onward!
I’m loving The Expanse, but have only read the first two! #3 is sitting patiently on my shelf.
YALC prep! I couldn’t decide what to take, I had a lot of options and didn’t know how easy it was to approach authors for signings. I ended up only taking the V. E. Schwab books — which are now personalised and signed! I’m so glad I got to meet her.
I temporarily traded the cats for dogs when I went to stay with my family in London. Nora was feeling the tension in A Conjuring of Light.
Probably the most beautiful book I got at YALC and a contender for most beautiful book of the year! The Loneliest Girl in the Universe is absolutely gorgeous inside and out.
Day 1 swag! Mum laughed at me and then helped me lay it all out. I was a little over enthusiastic and should have paced myself, but I regret nothing.
Day 2 swag! I was better this day and had so much more fun without my huge backpack weighing me down!
I discovered Mum’s amazing bookmark collection and had to share it with you guys. She has been collecting for years, but I never saw them all together! Now you guys know where I get it from.
The full YALC swag pile. I was worried I couldn’t get it all home, but I did! One suitcase, one large backpack, and one duffel bag did the trick.
I was trying to take round up photos, but Dax wanted to play. She’s about to tackle Sophia and knock everything over. The cats are jerks, but I missed them!
That’s it for this week! Stay tuned for more YALC goodness and a round up of everything I got. If you want to follow me on Instagram, you can find me here. I try to do lots with my stories and you don’t see those pics here!
