    Sky in the Deep Review

    I was lucky enough to receive The Girl the Sea Gave Back from Titan Books in exchange for an honest review, however when I requested the book I didn’t actually know that this was the second book that Adrienne Young had written. Therefore, I got myself out to Waterstones sharpish and bought a copy of Sky in the Deep so I could get it read before The Girl the Sea Gave Back.  My review is now up and can be seen here.  Goodreads   l    Waterstones   l   Book Depository  l Hive Edition: Paperback Genre: Young Adult Fantasy Pages: 332 UK Publication: March 2019 Content warnings for the book: Animal sacrifice /…

    YALC 2019

    Hello! Sorry that it has been a while since I posted, life has been busy and blogging had to go on the back burner. However, being at YALC has refreshed my love of blogging and I have been inspired to sort my schedule out and get some writing done. It was a busy weekend, but I’ll try not to make this post TOO long! Friday I went to YALC for all 3 days again this year. This was my second visit to YALC, with my first vising being 2 years ago in 2017. I was able to meet up with my blogging gang, who I haven’t seen in person for…
