If you didn’t know (then you probably don’t follow us on Instagram), we’ve been cohosting the Shelf Help Readathon with the lovely Jaz and Sharn. We wanted to come together and host something that would help people take care of their shelves and themselves in the last couple of weeks.

Camp is due to ‘come out’ this month in the U.K. and i luckily got the chance to ask Lev some questions about his new book. It’s been a while since our last interview, and i always find him a delight to talk to with really interesting answers to questions. Thank you hugely to Lev for answering some questions for us, and to Simon from Penguin for organising!

I started with Flight Of A Starling, and she kept encouraging me to pick more and more books up by Lisa. I didn’t need a whole bunch of persuading after my first book by her, but i do want to talk a little bit about how i think she’s incredibly underappreciated.

Girls On The Verge was an impulse Foyles purchase for me about a year ago now. I remember being on my own in Foyles for the first time and i realised i didn’t have to worry about how many books i bought, because no-one would care (this is a stupid realisation but it made me so happy).
