It was my third year at YALC this year, and my second year doing the full weekend. I always have such a fun time with my friends, being surrounded by books and meeting fab authors. I wanted to write an honest post about my YALC experience this year which was wonderful fun with just a couple of issues. Continue reading
I picked the ARC of this book up at NYA Lit Fest in Preston. That was in March and I’ve been wanting to read it for a while now. I started reading it over a month ago I think but was super busy with my job at the time and had no spare time to read. I honestly really thought this book was great and I love that it covers such a taboo area in mental illness – psychosis. Continue reading
I have been waiting for the dip in my reading for a while now, it seems to be going so well i’m guaranteed to hit a slump at some point soon. April is clearly not that time for me! I partly contributed to ARC Attack April, and my goal was to read as many ARCs this month that i could get around to.

Hello all! It’s Blog Every Day in May (BEDM) and we are going to be joining the trend. However, slight difference – we may blog every other day in May as this crept up on us and we are both very busy eggs!

First BEDM post is a review of My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma, which is released in the UK tomorrow! Continue reading
I had set aside April to catch up on my TBR of ARC’s. I seem to have accumulated quite a few in the last few months, and it was time to catch up on them before the release dates in April and May.
Here is the book haul that wasn’t supposed to happen. I made the goal this year that i was going to use the library more and really cut down on what i was buying. Given that i’ve also had limited funds for January, this seemed sensible to me. There were a few releases that i knew i would be buying, and i was excited for them, but not enough for a haul…
My YALC book haul from last year looks extremely disappointing next to this years. I made sure when i was there that i set myself a limit on how much i wanted to spend, only got books i really wanted and let myself grab some ARCs i might not normally read to try out some new genres. I met all those criteria, but i still ended up with a lot of books…
