Hey friends, it’s been a while!
I’ve been absent for pretty much the entire month for various reasons which I’ll go into another time, in another post. The weekend just gone through was YALC weekend, one of my favourite times of the year, and I had an amazing time. I’ll be doing a follow-up post talking about the actual event itself like I did last year for YALC 2018, but for now, I wanted to start with something joyous – my YALC 2019 book haul!
This year I got a little bit wild with my book acquisitions despite promising my partner I wouldn’t be getting many books due to financial constraints. However, I was lucky enough to get a good amount of books via the wonderful book swap area as well as win a few in the giveaways run by the publishers. That coupled with the incredible deals (I mean, could you really turn down a 3 for £5 deal?!) meant that in total I acquired 21 books at YALC this year (and still came in under budget)!!! I got about 3-6 books a day which then got taken back to our hotel room so I didn’t realize just how many books I had until I had to pack them all up to transport home. Thankfully my lovely partner was able to help me carry them home and I spent a good few hours yesterday rearranging my bookshelves to make them all fit.
Here’s a look at the books I got from YALC 2019 ❤

I don’t often post book hauls, in fact my last one was in November 2018, but I got some really lovely books for my birthday on the 15th April and during Easter Con last weekend that I really wanted to share with you all. I’ve been really lucky and thankful to receive so many wonderful gifts as well as have the financial means to afford to buy more books this year, so I hope you all don’t mind me sharing these with you all!

Hey friends, welcome to The Sunday Post – a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer to share all the weekly news and feels!
Last week I talked about how excited I was for reading week this week and how much stuff I was going to get done. *Insert canned audience laughter* Of course, that didn’t happen. I didn’t get any work done for my uni course or any life stuff sorted. So, what did I actually do?

I was planning on posting up a review today because it has been so long since I’ve posted one but have had a really difficult day. Instead, I was inspired by Fay’s 5 Star TBR prediction post and decided to do one based around my July and August haul of YALC books, ARCs, gifts, and charity shop finds!
