I don’t think it’s… Continue reading Books I want to read before YALC (if I can find enough hours in the day)

An evening with Victoria Schwab // The Near Witch, writing processes, and living in a shed for three months

When V.E. Schwab announced that she was going on tour in the UK, I kind of screamed. I mean, it was an internal, quiet scream, since I was at work, but a scream nonetheless. I was excited. I hadn’t seen Victoria since YALC 2017 and (as you’ve probably guessed by now) she’s pretty much my favourite… Continue reading An evening with Victoria Schwab // The Near Witch, writing processes, and living in a shed for three months

2019 Reading and Blogging Goals // I know it’s already March but hear me out on this one

Last year, I made some blogging and reading goals for myself and when I looked back in December 2019, I was pleased to discover that I’d achieved all but one. I know we’re two months into the year, but I realised I hadn’t shared any of the goals I quietly set myself in January, and… Continue reading 2019 Reading and Blogging Goals // I know it’s already March but hear me out on this one
