Over the last weekend of July, I got the chance to go to the Young Adult Literature Convention for it’s third year. I got to go last year but 2016 was the first time that I was able to attend on all three days and I had so much fun!
Also, ANNOUNCEMENT! I’m hosting a YALC GIVEAWAY of some signed swag I picked up whilst I was there (skip to the end for the giveaway)!
Hi everyone! So, I’m super happy to announce that I’m going to be a part of the UKYACX Blog Tour! That’s the UK Young Adult and Children’s Extravaganza to those who are acronym unaware!
I picked up Cinder, a retelling of the classic Cinderella, by Marissa Meyer from Amazon whilst staying with my parents in Aberdeenshire back in April. I’d never heard of the series before but who can turn down the promise of a cyborg mechanic Cinderella? No one, I tell you, no one with any sense anyway! And I really liked the cover and I can’t turn away from an attractive book cover. Call me shallow.
Happy Saturday everyone! Welcome to another book review here at Dewey Girl. This week it’s the turn of Across the Universe by Beth Revis, first published in 2011. If you’re into Space-Agey YA with the typical dystopian feel, a bit of romantic angst all mixed in with murder mystery on board a spaceship then this is the book for you!
