July 2015


It’s time for another review and this week it’s the turn of The Sham an indie YA novel by Ellen Allen. If you’re into thriller type stories with a murder mystery edge then this is absolutely the book for you. In fact, I’d recommend this to anyone; it’s one of the best books that I’ve read in a while and I was purposefully arriving at work half an hour early so that I could sit in the staff room and read before my shift.


I was so excited to be attending this year’s Young Adult Literature Convention. I read quite a lot of YA even though I’m in my late 20s and this year there were loads of authors attending who I had read and would have liked to have met or seen in discussion. I was so gutted to have not been aware of YALC 2014 that I had watched for tickets to this year’s event like a hawk.
