July has been a very slow, unproductive month for me in terms of reading, so I haven’t got much to talk about at all on this post – but I do still want to keep you guys updated.
Hopefully, August will be a better month for me as I am going to be on full-on summer holiday mode (which simply means lazy days everyday, except for Saturday and Sunday for I have work) and 5 days on I have already read 2 books, and reading the third one of the month.
So, without further ado – here is the only book I have read this month!
You Know Me Well by Nina Lacour and David Levithan
I have enjoyed reading You Know Me Well, I have started to familiarise myself with Levitahn’s work and so far I have enjoyed the majority of his writing. It was interesting how two author’s are able to write such a wonderful story – and I am going to have to do my research as to how they did it.
Katie and Mark are such wonderful characters, especially Mark as – I guess, he isn’t what I thought him to be. I thought he was going to be the person who is hiding in the closet or someone who isn’t quite yet ready to fully come-out, but really all he was trying to hide (and not very well) was the fact that he was in-love with his best-friend. Then there’s Kate, the budding artist and a girl who’s in-love with the idea of a girl she has never met, and is afraid of meeting said girl, but they met anyway – and asdfghjkl – it was B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L.
There are so many things going on in just a span of a week, and the friendship that Kate and Mark had, I was pretty jealous of. They have this wonderful dynamic, and they just know each other so well even though they know so little about each other (if that made any sense), but yes – it may be the only book that I have read the whole month but it was a wonderful read.
As you may already know, I also went to YALC and is a part of London Film and Comic Convention. It was a lot of fun, but I do wish that I wasn’t so introverted and said Hi to fellow book lovers there – but, I was just so petrified at the thought of interacting with others that I just looked at the floor and went about the day on my own.
I did still have fun though, I got to meet four of my favourite authors as of late – and got a glimpse of other authors as well.
One thing though that I would like to share is the fact that you have to be prepared to wait in line for hours, and to keep in mind that if you really want an autograph from your favourite author, that you are willing to not attend any of the panel shows just so you could be first in line.
Also, there are a lot of stall where you can get a lot of freebies, and buy novels for a cheaper price – and that you may have to spend quite a fair bit of money to buy every single book you want. I know that I spent approximately £100 on books (and also food) for one single day.
Urgh, this is the first time I am actually putting my face up for the public to see, and I don’t even particularly care because I am just a happy bunny at the moment.
Well, this is all I have to say for the month of July.
I hope you guys enjoyed my rambling
See you on my next post!
