Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all had a great week. I had a tough week in work, it was emotionally draining. I had a WONDERFUL day yesterday though so I feel much better now.
Due to a few late nights last week, I didn’t read a huge amount but I did finish reading Rebel of the Sands in time for the event I went to with Alwyn Hamilton. Whilst I was there, I managed to scoop up an early finished copy of Traitor to the Throne which is going to be my next read. I also finally finished listening to the audio book of Hard Choices by Hillary Clinton. This book was super interesting and some parts left me feeling incredibly inspired.
I just happened to inherit a couple of books this week (sorry book buying ban!). I already mentioned my early copy of Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton. I also got copies of Caraval by Stephanie Garber (EEEEK) and Roseblood by A. G. Howard. I am SUPER excited for Caraval, it’s unreal.
I am SO happy to have been approved on Netgalley for Sweet Pea by C. J. Skuse, if you’ve followed my reviews for a while you’ll know I absolutely loved her book The Deviants last year. I also added two books to my tbr (although I have not bought them….yet!): Too Close to Home by Aoife Walsh and Unconventional by Maggie Harcourt. Both look brilliant!
I finished a few books this week so I’ve made a bit of progress on my challenges, although #DiverseAThon did not go to plan so nothing to report on #DiversityBingo2017. Click the links to visit individual challenge pages.

I had the best time yesterday going to the Girl Power in YA panel with my lovely friend Rosie. The panel was awesome: Katherine Webber, Alwyn Hamilton and Sarah Govett. It was a great evening and I was so overwhelmed by my interactions with Katie Webber who is one of the sweetest people I have met. The think to my post about the event is above.
