Myself and my very good best pal Charlotte from Wonderfully Bookish found ourselves co-reading Toffee by Sarah Crossan recently. We love a blog hop so decided to review it for each other! That means you can head over to her blog to read my review of Toffee! We really want to make more of an effort with co-blogging, because it’s a lot of fun to take over someone else’s page for a little while, let us know if you like it or have any ideas. Make sure to keep reading for Charlotte’s review!

I’ve found some collections that i absolutely love.

Sarah Crossan is officially one of my favourite authors. The Weight Of Water was the last book that i had to read of hers, so i can officially say that i love her now, right? She’s a fantastic story teller and verse writer, it’s hard not to fall in love with each of her stories.

We are looking forward to meeting so many incredible authors and finding out more about how they write and the fantastic books that are on our shelves at home. There are a whole host of great authors going to YALC this year (and we’re a little in awe about how many we actually get to be in the same room as at once), so many of them we cannot wait to hear talk. Here’s a list of the authors that we are most excited about seeing.
