Weekly Reading Wrap-Up: 25 May 2018

Happy Friday everyone!  How is May almost over?  Seriously, how? You all may have noticed (or not) that I haven’t been great about updating here for a couple of weeks.  I took a mini-hiatus due to some serious stress popping up, but that's all sorted now!  Exciting new to come.  Back to business as usual!

Weekly (Plus Hiatus) Wrap-Up: 26 October 2017

Happy Friday!  I can’t believe the weekend is already here.  So as you know, I had been on hiatus until earlier this week.  I thought that I’d do a wrap-up of the books I read this week and the books I read while I was away from here -- and I certainly read a lot of them!  So without any further ado, here is my weekly wrap-up (plus hiatus reads).  You might want to grab a snack -- this is going to be quite a long post!

Reading Vlog #2

So I'm still on hiatus, but I did do a reading vlog this week.  I thought I'd share it with you guys, because I did a lot of reading!  Featuring: fierce heroines, loud church bells, and thrashing kitty tails!

TBR Thursday #13

TBR Thursday is a weekly post hosted by yours truly. If you’d like to participate in TBR Thursdays, please feel free! Link me in your post so I can take a look at what you’ve got on your shelves and so we can cry together about how we are never going to actually finish reading through our TBR piles.

Review: The Loneliest Girl in the Universe

I had heard some buzz surrounding The Loneliest Girl in the Universe in the lead up to YALC, which had early copies for sale.  I absolutely loved the cover and liked the synopsis well enough.  Science fiction is one of my favourite genres, and I was looking forward to a young adult take.  I made sure to pick up a copy, and it was the first book from my YALC haul that I read.

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.

Tips for Attending YALC

As many UK readers know, the Young Adult Literature Convention (YALC) is coming up this week!  Part of London Film and Comic Con, YALC celebrates YA books, readers, and authors in one happy weekend.  I’m going to YALC for the first time, as I’m sure many others are too, but I am a seasoned attendee of both New York Comic Con and professional conferences.  I thought I’d share some general conference-going tips to (hopefully) make your life a bit easier and more comfortable at YALC.
