I picked up a copy of The Burning by Laura Bates a couple of months ago when it was first released. I really love the work that Laura does for feminism and i’ve flicked through her non-fiction books and really enjoyed them. I was very interested to see what her previous work would translate to in YA fiction.

With YALC this month, I should probably be reading my YALC tbr…but I hate the word ‘should’ and I’m really not feeling it! I still want to read all of the books on it, just not right now. To be honest, I’ve not read loads the past few months anyway, partially because I haven’t had chance as well as being in a bit of a slump. I wanted to get my feelings out about all this because I feel kind of bad about it even though there’s no reason to! Continue reading “My YALC Reading Slump” →
It’s just over a month until YALC now, which is no time whatsoever and naturally i’m having a huge panic about my TBR. As the author announcements were a little late this year, it’s been more of a panic than usual to get my reading in order and figure out what i want to read before the event. So after a couple of months, here’s how my TBR is going…

Earlier this month, Sarah posted her YALC 2019 TBR and I’ve been meaning to fully go through all the authors and decide what I want to take with me and what I want to read prior to it. There’s some amazing authors attending and I was so happy when I read the announcements! Continue reading “Sophie’s YALC 2019 TBR (BEDM)” →
TBR piles are both a book blogger’s best friend and worst nightmare. Some people love having a TBR pile, some hate it and sometimes it just depends. I definitely fall into the just depends category as sometimes I love the structure of having a TBR for the near future but other times I feel constricted by it.

Admittedly, i know i’ve not stopped banging on about my YALC TBR for a good three months now. Ever since authors started to be announced for the event, i took the time to really think about what i would need to read beforehand and what i would enjoy the most. It’s not even to have the most books signed, i just hate going to events where everyone’s read a book and you don’t have an opinion on it!

YALC is getting closer and closer which means my reading is getting a little bit more panicked! I aimed to read quite a bit in June, but as it turned out i’ve had quite a busy life which involved two trips away. Admittedly not much reading got done on either of these, or at least not as much reading as i would have hoped (some book buying got done though, oops). However i have been enjoying reading from my YALC list and i’m back to Book Club reading after missing June’s meeting! Here’s what i read this month.
