So today was officially the BEST DAY EVER!!!!!!! My first year and first day there was amazing, and we’ve already decided were going next year for all 3 days.

My anxiety was fine and everyone was so so lovely. I had a few highlights of the day which will follow below.

Firstly when we arrived me and Courtney headed straight for the Waterstones for early release of GIANT DAYS , Lemmings and Snowflakes (ive already started and am loving)ย  and Only love can break your heart.


I then went a bit overboard and bought all my really anticipated books today so i didnt not get them. In the first hour id spent ยฃ70.00 from my 100. ๐Ÿ™ˆ

when the books go cheaper at the end i will be picking up some more .

Throughout the day i picked up a lot of bookish swag , met a lot of my favourite authors and got my books signed i.e. SARA BARNARD AND KAREN GREGORY (Who recognised me. YAAAYYY!!!!๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰).

I also went and saw the cover release for the PROUD book by STRIPES coming next year. Isnt it beautiful.

Thanks for reading, Any love and follows would be greatly appreciated. If you want to read what i got up to on Sunday read my next blog postย YALC Day 2

  1. WOW – sounds like an amazing day! So many of those books are books I want too! I love the PROUD cover. What a terrific job they did on designing the book. I can only imagine the content is super-cool too.

    I struggle with social anxiety myself sometimes and was really struck by how welcoming and cool the kid lit community is. (I was coming from screenwriting world and I can tell you – the same cannot be said of most of Hollywood!) I’m so glad you had a similar experience and were able to enjoy yourself fully. Can’t wait for the post on the other days!!
