I was lucky enough this year to be involved with the release of Kate Mallinder’s Summer Of No Regrets, and was very kindly gifted a copy of the book from Firefly Publishing.  I absolutely adored her debut novel (my full review is HERE), so wanted to get the chance to speak to Kate about her book and how she’s found the writing process!

My YALC Reading Slump

image6With YALC this month, I should probably be reading my YALC tbr…but I hate the word ‘should’ and I’m really not feeling it! I still want to read all of the books on it, just not right now. To be honest, I’ve not read loads the past few months anyway, partially because I haven’t had chance as well as being in a bit of a slump.

I adore Simon’s books and i’ve never been quiet about that online, or in person, basically i talk about Simon and his books an awful lot! When i found out that he was releasing a new YA novel that wasn’t in the Noah world, i was incredibly excited and had high hopes to see what his new characters would be like away from Noah, Harry and the old gang.

How Is My YALC TBR going?

It’s just over a month until YALC now, which is no time whatsoever and naturally i’m having a huge panic about my TBR. As the author announcements were a little late this year, it’s been more of a panic than usual to get my reading in order and figure out what i want to read before the event. So after a couple of months, here’s how my TBR is going…

June 2019 Wrap-Up

Sadly, my reading took a little bit of a turn in June, with events happening, a lot of family issues, new relationships and a lot of work, i’ve had barely any time to read! I wanted to continue my good run of having really great reading months, and now that YALC is around the corner (like really, so very soon), i need to up my reading game again to get through some more of my TBR!
