Five Things I'm Excited For This Summer

Every so often I have to remind myself to look at the positives and focus on the good things ahead. I've been feeling pretty crap recently so I decided to sit down and thing about what I have to look forward too. And actually? There's quite a lot lined up for me this summer.

  1. The time has finally come that I can go and see Cursed Child! I think I've done an amazing job of avoiding spoilers all these years and I am so excited to finally experience the magic and see what it's all about.
  2. YALC
    I get to spend a whole weekend talking about books with all of the bookish people! I can't wait to stay with some bookish buddies, the revival of #TakeawayYA, and squeaking at authors because I'm overwhelmed.
  3. UCLan Pulishing is hosting The Supernatural & Fantastical in YA next month, and not only does it have an amazing line up (Melinda Salisbury, Sally Green, Taran Matharu, Alexandra Christo, David Owen, Melvin Burgess, A.J Hartley, Marcus Sedgwick) but again it's FREE. Amazing.
  4. My local Waterstones is really excelling this year when it comes to bringing even more amazing events up North. I really can't wait to see Matt Haig again, he was excellent last time he was up.
  5. So much is going to be happening and I am so ready for it. Even though I didn't get launch night tickets (boo) I can't wait for it all to start in just two weeks. I've already been watching the changes taking place in various venues.
What are you looking forward to this summer?

  2. So many fab things on this list - though I am VERY jealous because I have not seen Cursed Child!

  3. I love how you have so many bookish plans for the summer! I would love to see Matt Haig & I'm super jealous that you're going to YALC. I can't wait to hear about it!! :D

  4. The main thing I'm excited about this summer is going on holiday, which is only a week and a half away now. Hope you enjoy all of the things on your list 💜
