I cannot believe we’ve reached the end of May! Doing monthly wrap-ups mean you realise how fast the time is going. I’m sure you know from my other blog posts and from Twitter that i’m in the midst of a YALC panic. I have so many books i want to read before YALC and i definitely don’t think i’ll get through them all. So for the next few months i’ll be solely reading books from authors who are attending YALC and i want to get to before the event. May was the start of that.
YALC is getting ever closer and if you didn’t already know, i’m going to YALC! Unlike last year, i’m doing all three days with my bud Charlotte from Wonderfully Bookish. We’re going to have a right good time, and are definitely feeling the reading pressure right now.

Popular culture references are something that cannot be avoided. They’re everywhere and we make them in day to day life more than we’d imagine. They are popping up in songs, movies and even more commonly, books.
Recently, I’ve been getting more into writing again. When I was younger, I used to write quite a lot, be that fanfiction, short stories or even just diary entries each day or week. I loved it, especially when I was really in the mood to write and could keep writing for hours at a time. I had a lull in writing the past couple of years but now I’m back at it again!
