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?
