YALC 2018 |Awesome Authors, Amazing Books & Awful Accessibility

I return from my first ever YALC!

Last week I posted about my plans to attend the YA Lit Con in London for the first year and wanted to do a little round-up because, unsurprisingly, I picked up a lot of fantastic books, met some great people and attended some interesting panels that I wanted to share with you all.

OWLs Readathon | July Wrap Up

OWLs Readathon | July Wrap Up

Hello friends!

Like all the preceding months of 2018, July had passed by in a blur and it was over before I knew it but this was also a super busy month for me so I’m not surprised! July was the month of moving house, attending YALC last weekend, and preparing for my sessions at Nine Worlds in just under 2 weeks.
