WWW Wednesday | 25th September 2019 – DNF’ing a highly anticipated release?

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:

What are you currently reading/playing?
What did you recently finish reading/playing?
What do you think you’ll read/play next?

Hey everyone! It has been a chaotic 2 weeks since my last WWW Wednesday post. On Monday I submitted my dissertation for my MRes which has been taking up about 99% of my time so I am super glad to have finally submitted it and be able to move onto my PhD. I’m having a bit of a reading dilemma this week so I hope you’ll stick around to offer your thoughts and advice this week ❤

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 ❤

Top 10 Tuesday | Books I Would Cross the Galaxy to Get my Hands On

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way. 

– Top 10 Books I would Cross the Galaxy to get my hands on –

This weeks prompt was actually “books I would slay a lion to get early” but a) I’m not about slaying animals and b) most of the books I wanted to get ‘early’ have already been released! So once again I’ve taken a bit of creative license and adapted the prompt instead to include ANY books I would cross the galaxy to get my hands on – regardless of when they were published.
