I've got plenty of books I've really enjoyed to tell you about, so hopefully look out for some reviews over the next couple of weeks...First up, is almost the first book I picked up at YALC a few weeks ago. Lauren James' The Loneliest Girl in the Universe. Which attendees were able to buy before it's official release on the 7th September.
Fri, 28 Jul 2017 06:00:07 +0000 YALC: Wrap-Up Well, another YALC has been and gone, and I thought that it was best to get my highlights post written before the post-con blues set in properly and it becomes too painful... ;)It was a wonderful weekend, filled with, meeting friends old and new, and utterly amazing bookishness. And even a couple of non-book related evenings out.

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 20:14:05 +0000 Red Sister by Mark Lawrence At the Convent of Sweet Mercy young girls are raised to be killers. In a few the old bloods show, gifting talents rarely seen since the tribes beached their ships on Abeth. Sweet Mercy hones its novices’ skills to deadly effect: it takes ten years to educate a Red Sister in the ways of blade and fist.
YALC Panels I’m Excited For YALC and LFCC seems to have crept up on me this year, and even though it's next week I've only really just started to plan what panels I want to try and catch.I thought I'd share a couple from each day that are jumping out at me at the moment.
