Instagram Sundays

I cannot believe it's August already!  In the UK, this apparently means it's time to break out your lighter sweaters and blankets. So get cosy and warm, because it's time for Instagram Sundays!

YALC Round-Up and Book Haul

As I’m sure you all know (and might be sick of hearing), I was lucky enough to attend YALC this past weekend. The Young Adult Literature Convention is part of London Film and Comic Con and is held once a year. I had never been before and was incredibly excited to attend – I have friends who have been, and they absolutely loved it. I got my reading list together, came up with some tips for attending, made some pals on Twitter, packed my bags, and headed to London.

Weekly Wrap-Up #15

Happy Friday, you guys! I’m currently living it up at YALC, but I didn’t want to miss my favorite post of the week. I've been trying to get a ton of reading in before attending this convention, however life gets in the way (as usual). I dind't read as much as I would have liked, but here is a round-up of all the reading I did this week. Apologies if this post is weirdly formatted or if I don't reply as fast as usual! I imagine I'm probably going to be absolutely exhausted after every day!

ARC Review: The Underground Railroad

The Underground Railroad has been on my radar since its publication in 2016.  It received pretty much all of the good press a book could get – it was one of the titles in Oprah’s book club, won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, the National Book Award, and was named as one of the books Barack Obama read while in office.  It’s a departure from a lot of the books I’ve been reading these days, but I knew I had to pick it up.
