Before I packed myself off to Nine Worlds this year, I set myself a little reading list that I hoped I could conquer before attending. However, setting myself the task of reading 3 books in only 4 days was clearly not the most realistic of goals but I did read 2/3 books and was donated two amazing trilogies by fellow 9W attendees which I also want to share with you!
