Bookmarked... #5

The return of the weekly post letting you all know what I'm reading and have lined up for the week! It's my own version of Sheila at Book Journey's It's Monday What Are You Reading and I have her permission to rename it for my own nefarious reasons :)

Hands up if you thought I'd fallen off the planet? Yeah, me too! I don't even know where to begin except to say sorry - again - for my really crappy blogging this year. I'm hopefully home for a good while now so can get caught up, start posting regularly again, catch up on all my reading and maybe even get back to scheduling blog posts in advance!

I haven't been doing anything exciting while I've been away - apart from LFCC & YALC, enjoyed it this year more than last but there's still things I didn't like and I'm still completely stunned about the totally rude encounters I had with a couple of bloggers. I don't think I'm going to do a write-up post because I think those incidents have colored the whole thing for me sadly. Highlights were finally getting to meet the wonderful amazing Frances Hardinge (!!!), there were photos, she drew geese in my books and she'd heard of my blog!!! Another highlight was meeting the amazing Dawn Kurtagich, author of The Dead House, and bonding over parma violets much to the disgust of Kat Ellis, meeting Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan and some fantastic panels. If you asked me now I'd probably say I wouldn't go again, not for YALC anyway, but who knows what next year will bring?

  1. I am so sorry that you had a dust up with some bloggers. I had no idea that there was something happening. Bah! I hate that it took something away from blogging, but I am THRILLED to see you back! I'm glad it didn't chase you off.

    Summer is pretty slow int he blogging world, and I expect a lot of people to drop off then come back during this time.

    Welcome back!

    1. Turns out that some people aren't in fact as friendly in real life as they are online! Never mind, lesson learnt and time to move on.

      I'm thrilled to be back so thank you :)
