YALC 2019 | Book Haul

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 ❤

Book Tag | The A-Z of Book Bloggers

It’s been a while since I’ve done a book tag and I loved the look of this A-Z of Book Bloggers tag that imyril recently did. The tag was originally created by the Perpetual Page Turner.

Author you’ve read the most books by

As much as it pains me to say it I think it might actually be J.K Rowling because of the Harry Potter series, but if not then it would be George R.R Martin thanks to the huge ASOIAF series. I would definitely love for this to change to an author that I actually really love :’)

Best sequel ever

This is such a hard one for me because, as I’m sure we are all aware of by now, I suck at series and hardly ever get past that first book. So… I don’t think I can answer this (yet) until I discover more sequels!

I started Tone of Voice by the wonderful Kaia Sønderby today and oh my heart. I adored Failure to Communicate and I can’t even explain how warm it made my heart when I rejoined Xandri Corelel on her adventures. I can’t wait to see what she gets up to in this book ❤

 

Drink of choice whilst reading

My reading drink of choice really depends on what time of the day it is and how I’m feeling. If it’s in the morning or early afternoon I’ll probably be drinking tea, but if it’s the evening or on a warm afternoon then I’ll probably be drinking diet coke. Either way, these are my two staple drinks.

Down the TBR Hole | March Deadlines

Down the TBR Hole was originally created by Lia @ Lost in a Story

Welcome to the first of my Down the TBR Hole deadline reviews! If you’ve ever read any of my Down the TBR Hole posts, you may have noticed that I also assign myself a deadline date for those books that I do decide to keep. Although this is not a feature of the original Down the TBR Hole, I know that I would likely continue to let these books sit on my TBR shelf unless I gave myself a motivation to read them. By assigning deadlines, it was my hope that I would be giving myself an incentive to hurry up and read the books or else force myself to discard them from my TBR – holding me accountable for my keeps and motivating me to read!

Let’s see how I did for my Round One – March Deadline books:

March TBR | The Month of the ARCs (again)

Hey panda pops!

February turned out to be an absolutely terrible reading month for me with only 2 books read and I have a lot of new release ARCs that I need to read for this month so I am praying that March turns out to be a much better reading month for me. I’ve already managed to finish one ARC – You Asked for Perfect by Laura Silverman – which I absolutely adored and I’m onto my second ARC so fingers crossed the rest of the month goes as smoothly.
