7 things to do this weekend instead of attending YALC

Please continue supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. The Black Lives Matter cardd is constantly being updated with new information, petitions, and resources. If you’ve attended YALC in the past, you’ll know that this coming weekend, 24th – 26th July, should have been YALC 2020. Sadly, Covid had other plans and the convention had to be cancelled. YALC… Continue reading 7 things to do this weekend instead of attending YALC

July 2020 TBR // What I’ll be reading this summer

This month is going to be an unusual one since there’s no YALC this year. *cries in bibliophile* But, since I’m not reading the books I would have taken to the convention (to get signed), I’m going to be focusing on finishing the physical books I’m currently reading. The books I’ll be trying to finish… Continue reading July 2020 TBR // What I’ll be reading this summer

Review: The Princess and the Fangirl // A celebration of fan culture and conventions

Imogen Lovelace is an ordinary fangirl on an impossible mission: save her favorite character, Princess Amara, from being killed off from her favorite franchise, Starfield. The problem is, Jessica Stone—the actress who plays Princess Amara—wants nothing more than to leave the intense scrutiny of the fandom behind. If this year’s ExcelsiCon isn’t her last, she’ll… Continue reading Review: The Princess and the Fangirl // A celebration of fan culture and conventions

July 2019 Wrap Up // YALC, Indian Lit Readathon, and new vegan food

July is always a great month and this time was no different. The weather was hot, YALC was amazing, and I read some really great books. I read eight books in July, including three audiobooks, two short stories, and a graphic novel. And, aside from The Devouring Gray, which I’ll be finishing in August, I… Continue reading July 2019 Wrap Up // YALC, Indian Lit Readathon, and new vegan food

*sings* It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, not Christmas. It’s YALC season. YALC (the UK’s Young Adult Literature Convention) is in two days, which means (if you’re anything like me) you’ll be doing some last minute packing tonight, and trying to decide which outfit will help you melt less in the heat.… Continue reading Last minute packing for YALC // Make sure you’ve got everything you need for the big weekend

Books I want to read before YALC (if I can find enough hours in the day)

YALC is the big UK literature convention that happens every summer and is undoubtedly the highlight of my bookish calendar. I get to hang out with friends (which is especially fun when you haven’t seen each other for ages), go to panels, and line up for author signings with my faves. I don’t think it’s… Continue reading Books I want to read before YALC (if I can find enough hours in the day)
