Okay, I know I'm just making excuses now but the end of June / start of July was horrendously busy. I had friends staying, then I got a new job (YAY!) and then I had my birthday weekend, which if you follow me on social media, you'll know that I was all over the country … Continue reading JUN WRAP UP | The Books & the Stats
With YALC and the UKYA Blogging Awards just around the corner, I teamed up with fellow UKYA bloggers to create a buzzfeed-style quiz so that you can find out which UKYA character you are! There's loads of these quizzes out there, but I find that they're filled with USYA and the amazing work within the … Continue reading UKYABA | Which UKYA character are you?
