I missed book tag Thursday yesterday because I had my first shift at my new job! I can’t remember if I told you all about it but I’m one of the new operations assistants at a local community centre working part-time while I study. I also had to finish my PhD application which was due in today, so I’ve had a pretty busy few days and fell a bit behind with blogging.
Here’s a fun little tag to catch up on my missed day yesterday!

This year will be my first year at YALC and I am so excited for many, many reasons. For those who don’t know about YALC (like me last year!), it’s a YA Lit Convention happening in London this weekend! Lots of authors will be attending to talk on panels and sign books, there are lots of stalls giving away review copies and selling bookish merch, and lots of book bloggers will be in attendance too!
4 days to go!
