The YALC Diaries

For YALC this year, I thought I’d do something a little different from my standard book haul or uninteresting list.  Behold, The YALC Diaries! Although I’m beginning this post after Friday’s festivities have come to an end, I’m planning to write this up as a play-by-play of my favourite book event. Here we go!

September TBR Strategy

It’s the first of September and that means two things – I’ll have to start wearing a jacket to work and it’s time for this month’s reading strategy!  I really love doing these post because they help remind me of what’s been hiding in my TBR pile and gives me a little nudge of motivation.

August TBR Strategy

I find these monthly TBR strategies really helpful.  I’m the kind of person who instantly rebels against any kind of restriction for my reading, so I tend to use them more like guidelines than strict rules.  My digital and physical TBR piles are absolutely staggering right now. 

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.  

Weekly Wrap-Up #12

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.
