Happy New Year everyone! It’s time to make public my goals for the coming year, both in terms of reading and writing. I’m keeping them at a fairly basic level so hopefully they’ll be achievable. Advertisements
Okay, so I only really smashed one goal this year (spoiler alert – it wasn’t to do with regular posting), but I couldn’t resist the Hamilton quote. Yes it’s been nearly four months since I was last here but let’s wrap up 2017 anyway.
August was a busy month so I never got round to doing my July wrap up, and yet somehow I had enough time to read 8 books (it would have been 9 if I hadn’t of gotten so distracted by Sherlock fanfiction). I have been on holiday though so I guess that’s fair enough.
As to be expected I was doing fairly well on the whole ‘not acquiring a ton of books’ front up until YALC at the end of the month. To give myself some credit though I could have come away with a whole lot more than I did.
I amassed quite a pile of samplers over the duration of YALC last weekend, ranging in length from a handful to seventy-two pages. It’s taken me a little while to get through them all but here are my thoughts on each one – settle down as this is pretty lengthy…
Blimey, what a weekend. From carnage at proof drops to signing queues that lasted for hours, YALC 2017 was certainly crazy. There was also the small matter of a certain actor reducing us all to swooning giggling messes multiple times a day.
I hit a bit of a mental brick wall and so haven’t updated this for a little while. My apologies. With YALC fast approaching (just a couple of days left to go!) I thought I better catch you up on what I’ve been reading and buying recently.
