YALC 2017 – Signed Books

This year for YALC i ended up taking a lot more books than i had bargained for with me to be signed by the attending authors. I really over-estimated how many authors would be attending and how much i’d actually have to read to complete my TBR pile (HERE is my YALC TBR if you didn’t see that). Needless to say, i didn’t complete my TBR pile, but i did get a whole load of books signed!

July Wrap-Up 2017

In June i ended up having a really great reading month, i think that was definitely because YALC stress was setting in. At the start of July i was hopeful for another really great reading month as YALC was the last weekend of the month. Sadly it’s now been and gone (keep an eye out for the mass amount of YALC posts coming your way), but for now, here are the books that i managed to cram in before the end of the month.

The Warner Bros. Studio Tour (Harry Potter)

Last weekend i embarked on my fourth trip to the studios, in which i once again marveled at how small Daniel Radcliffe actually is, drank Butterbeer and walked down Diagon Ally. I realised that i’ve never written a blog post about how much i love this experience and how much it amazes me every time i go, especially when taking first-timers with me who are taking everything in. Here’s a little bit about my experiences after my fourth trip.
(This post will contain spoilers and photos from the tour, do not continue if you haven’t been and don’t wish to know or see anything).
