YALC Haul 2018

Last weekend I went to YALC with my best friend, and I bought far, far too many books. I had an absolutely wonderful time, however, and I have no regrets as I’m so excited to read all of the ones that I picked up. I managed to meet a load of my favourite authors, pick up new releases I was am excited about, and just all in all have a great time.

I was doing so well with restricting myself on the Friday and Saturday, but I definitely went overboard (what a surprise) on the Sunday. Sunday afternoon means amazing offers that are too good to pass up, and I bought five in the few minutes in between my best friend leaving and me having to go too. Oops.

I had such a great time though, and I have no regrets (my shoulders disagree but hey ho). I’m utterly exhausted now, as it’s a very intense weekend and we were constantly on the go, but it was so, so worth it.
