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!
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.
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!
One Minute Recommendations are flash recommendations of books I think you'll love and why! These will all be books that haven't had a full review on this site yet.
Happy Friday! I'm currently in Edinburgh, my home away from home, and am absolutely loving it. Holidays are always the best time for reading, so let's get to it!
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.
I'm posting this a little later in the day than I usually like -- it has been a busy day! Scottish Fiancé ran his first race, so my big sister and I made signs to taunt/support him (see photo below). It has been a really hot day here in London, so there has been a … Continue reading Instagram Sundays
It’s Friday, the happiest day of the week! I didn’t do a weekly wrap-up last week because the last day of the month fell on a Friday – you can read my June round-up here. It has been a tough week for reading and blogging because of general life things (again, all good stuff), but I did manage to read one book this week.
Anyone who has spent time on this blog knows that I am an absolute sucker for a gorgeous cover. I’ll always pick up a beautifully designed book, and the cover will sway me to purchase a book about 80% of the time.
June has come to a close and July has just begun. It's time for Instagram Sundays, featuring the week's photos from my Bookstagram account.
