EXAMS ARE OVER HOORAY!! I AM FREE!! For now. I find out if I’ve passed everything in a couple of days but if I have UNLIMITED READING TIME AWAITS!
What have I been up to between the end of exams and now? Well I got to marathon the entire Throne of Glass series again and finally got to read QUEEN OF SHADOWS for the first time. That was epic. And then this past weekend I MET SARAH J MAAS AT SUPANOVA! It was like 20 seconds because the line was big and they were trying to get people through but still I MET MY CURRENT BIGGEST FAVOURITE AUTHOR SOMEBODY HOLD ME.
There were so many amazing cosplays at Supanova that were great fun to look at. And the author panels (including “Creating Kick Ass Characters” and “Myths and Misconceptions”) were super interesting and entertaining. Shout out to Tiarni (my friend and housemate) for all the photos I was too lazy to take haha
I may or may not have broken my buying ban and bought three books this past month (oops). But I also got a lot of books for review and gifted from various people! I’m just going to list them because laziness haha.
- ILLUMINAE I bought as part of Booktoberfest on Booktopia and IT TURNED OUT TO BE SIGNED!!
- I also bought THE WELL OF ASCENSION and THE HERO OF AGES so I can finally finish the Mistborn trilogy
- THESE SHALLOW GRAVES was sent to me for review (thanks Text!)
- SOUNDLESS was sent to me from Penguin Random House! I also won another copy of MAGNUS CHASE AND THE SWORD OF SUMMER at PTA Live! Almost turned it down until I realised it was signed…
- Allen & Unwin sent me a copy of THEIR FRACTURED LIGHT. I was in shock when I opened this package!
