Back to School Readathon


Hello everybody, exciting announcement today...I'm hosting a Back To School Readathon starting on the 28th August and ending on the 3rd September! 

It will be a very casual readathon, with no rules about specific books that need to be read. Sometimes I find that readathons are too restrictive so I have decided to create one where you can read ANYTHING. Since the theme is 'Back to School' there is an optional rule to read a book set in school and I'm seriously ecstatic about picking one from my tbr (to be read)! 

Mostly this is a ploy for me to diminish the size of my ever growing tbr and with a new school term starting imminently for most students, it's the perfect chance to get as much reading done as possible. The reasoning behind making this one week prior to the end of August is also strongly associated with my never ending dream of receiving my Hogwarts letter and so in my eyes the 1st of September marks the start of a new school year.

I would love for you all to join in the readathon so make sure to post what you are reading throughout the week using the hashtag #ThatFictionLifeReadathon. To stay up to date with what I am reading follow me on Twitter and Instagram as I will be updating those regularly. 

As a final point, if you would like to get involved, make sure to post a tbr pile of books you're hoping to get to and post a link to it in the comments so I can check it out. If you don't have a blog or YouTube channel you can post a photo to any social media too, just comment the link to your tweet or photo and don't forget to tag it with #ThatFictionLifeReadathon

  1. I have a pile of books I might read for this. Then again, I might read something else because I'm fickle like that.

    Books on the list are: Guilded Cage, THUG, Wing Jones, History is All You Left Me, The Fallen Children, Truth or Dare, The Call, Countless and One of Us Is Lying.

YALC Survival Guide

I am somewhat of a self-titled YALC veteran. I have attended the event since it began, meaning I have picked up some valuable tips over the years on how to get the most out of the weekend. If you are unaware what YALC is, it is the Young Adult Literature Convention happening in London in the last weekend of July. For 3 days, Young Adult readers get together with over 100 authors to celebrate reading, with panels and signings throughout. It is needless to say that a lot of fangirling goes down. 

If you wish to know what the event is like, here is a link to my vlogs from last year...or a write up of my whole weekend. 

Before the event...
1. Plan aheadI am definitely a planning person and I cannot function at YALC without having a concise plan of what I need to do each day. Every signing, panel and actor photo shoot and free time is scheduled in, one year I even made a spreadsheet. That is how hardcore I am.

If you are travelling to the event, make sure to look up weekend train schedules as …

One Of Us Is Lying by Karen McManus

One of Us Is Lying follows a multiple point of view murder mystery centered around five students that attend detention. Only four get out alive. The victim, known for exposing everyone's darkest secrets through a gossip app, has plenty of enemies, but who has the biggest motive? Based loosely on The Breakfast Club, the four contrasting personalities begin to figure out what really went down in the classroom that day in order to clear their names.


Genre: Young Adult Mystery Ideal for Fans of: Pretty Little Liars, Riverdale, Gossip Girl Themes: Betrayal, Family, Social Stereotypes  POV: Multiple

Upon hearing this synopsis, I freaked the hell out. A Geek, a Jock, a Criminal and a Princess, all caught up in a murder investigation? Let me tell you, this hits the jackpot. My immediate reaction after finishing it was slightly unstable and I say that with pride.   I JUST FINISHED ONE OF US IS LYING AND ITS MIDNIGHT AND I HAVE AN EARLY LECTURE BUT THAT IS IRRELEVANT BECAUSE THIS BOOK IS LIFE OM…
