Ally Carter Signed Book Giveaway!


February was a crazy month for YA literature, with so many bookish events, from author panels to signings, I thought it was time for another giveaway to spread the word of the incredible authors we have in this genre. I had the greatest chance to interview one of my favorite authors, Ally Carter, who was on her UK tour. THIS. WAS. EPIC. We filmed a Q and A and I found out some awesome insights into her writing and some hints as to when we will find out more about her secret book!



It was the perfect opportunity for me to bring an extra book for her to sign so I could do a giveaway of her latest series, Embassy Row. The plot for this trilogy is so very exciting and Ally herself gives the perfect summary as to what the main character Grace gets up in 'All Fall Down'- the book I am giving away plus some merch pictured above! Watch our interview below to learn more about this series and of course enter to win this book...rules are in the description of the video and at the end of this post!

Feminism in YA Fiction

A few months ago, I had the great opportunity to attend an event at Waterstones Piccadilly regarding feminism in the Young Adult genre, which opened up my eyes to the many points of view entrenched into society regarding the topic and how it affects the publishing industry. I had never had a strong interest in feminism and this meant I had very minimal understanding of it and this event truly enlightened me that my previous perceptions on the subject were false.


The three participating authors, CJ Daugherty, Holly Bourne and Holly Smale were interviewed by ELLE's literary editor Anna James and each discussed how feminism is represented in the Young Adult Genre. It was particularly highlighted that it is important to write about characters that do have flaws, ones that do make the wrong decision from time to time but it is also crucial to balance that with strong brave characters that can be looked up to. 
To me, the way to achieve this is  to move past the stereotypical girl getting…

Steve Backshall's Wild World Tour

It's not everyday that a young adult, such as myself, gets excited about going to the theatre to watch a show by a children's nature presenter, yet the second Steve Backshall's name is brought up, I make whatever arrangements to be there. This is strongly evidenced by me travelling to Tunbridge Wells 3 years ago for a book signing for his latest book release, the journey for which was over 2 hours. It's safe to say I'm dedicated.

Two weeks ago I attended his Wild World tour and I can say hands down it was the best show that I've been to, purely because my expectations, which were very high to begin with, were exceeded immensely. Steve's stage presence and interaction with the audience was fantastic and it was a highly interactive show which allowed questions throughout but it was balanced with clips and photos from his travels. 


The most important aspect that resulted from the talk was hands down learning about the consequences of the shark trade. As the firs…

London Film and Comic Con and YALC Roundup!

A third YALC at LFCC is done and dusted, which naturally means I will be locked up in my room reading all the books I acquired, for the next foreseeable future. Once again the publisher stands were filled with proofs, merchandise and tote bags to satisfy my fangirl desires and hoard them like there's no tomorrow. 



















Over the weekend I had acquired some very anticipated reads, my most faint worthy was of course Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which was released on the final day of the convention. As well as that, I couldn't resist adding new books to my never ending tbr and so I bought And I Darken and Black Arts. By some miracle, I also got my hands on a signed proof of Gilded Cage! 

The most surreal part of the weekend was seeing my favorite authors face to face, some I have had the pleasure of meeting before and it was awesome catching up.  








One of the highlights from the weekend was fulfilling my long life aspiration of sitting on the iron throne, ready to rule Winterfell. It…
