Mid year reading update

Hi friends,

Sorry I’ve been completely MIA, I have fallen into a blogging slump, every time I pick up my laptop and want to blog, I just can’t for some reason. A little life update, firstly summer is officially here.  A heatwave has hit the UK. I arrived in Canada,  hoping to escape but it’s even worse here, I AM MELTING. I’m so excited for all the summer books I’m going to be reading while relaxing in my aunt’s garden under the sun with lots of sweet waterlemon!

I have been so busy this week, packing my clothes, books, preparing for YALC, which I enjoyed very much even though I was only there for 3 hours 😦 I was feeling really unwell and I was so upset I couldn’t enjoy the whole day.  For those who went, I hope you had the best time, I didn’t win anything but I was so envious of all the ARCs people were winning ahhhhh!!! I am feeling the post YALC blues and I can’t wait for next year! The highlight of yalc 2019 for me was meeting Malorie Blackman, I couldn’t stay until her signing and I was so gutted but guess what, I ran into her just as I was about to leave and I feel bad because I think she just came in but I spoke to her about Noughts and Crosses, how it destroyed me and she signed my book! BEST MOMENT EVER!

Ok lets stop screaming about Canada and YALC and talk about my favourite 2019 books so far and some books I want to read before 2019 ends…
