SUNDAY SUMMARY 13.08.2017

Hi everyone! It is back. My blogging mojo seems to be back. I’ve posted every single day of August so far (thanks to all those backlogged reviews I had from July….) and I still have lots of ideas in my head for posts too.

Editing Emma: The Secret Blog of a Nearly Proper Person  A Change Is Gonna Come  Wonder Woman: Warbringer (DC Icons, #1)

I’ve had a fabulous reading week so far. My first read was the newly released Editing Emma by Chloe Seager. This book was so funny and fresh, very reminiscent of Louise Rennison’s style but so much more up to date and my little feminist heart was beating proudly. My second read was the highly anticipated and wonderful new BAME anthology A Change is Gonna Come. There are few words that can do this book the justice it deserves but it is definitely the kind of change the publishing industry need. My current read is Wonder Woman: Warbringer by the fantastic Leigh Bardugo. I was lucky enough to receive an early copy of the book from Penguin and I am loving it so far!

The Crash  A Change Is Gonna Come

I have been better behaved this week! I received a copy of The Crash by Lisa Drakeford from my lovely friend Rachel and my pre-order of A Change is Gonna Come arrived. Other than that I did not buy any books!

Invictus  I am Traitor  Otherworld (Otherworld, #1)

A couple of requests I made on NetGalley came through this week too but now I am on a requesting BAN (unless Godsgrave appears that is!). I MUST get my percentage up now – it did go up 1% yesterday so that’s something…

Progress is being made little by little! Every little counts and all that!

book-of-the-week

A Change Is Gonna Come

A Change is Gonna Come is an anthology written by BAME authors. Some of these are well known names in the UKYA community and this anthology also introduces some debut authors. There is something in here for everyone. Whether you can relate to the stories on a personal level or whether you read these stories and learn, this is a book that should be read by people of all ages and backgrounds. I love that this book is going to provide so many young people with the opportunity to see themselves in fiction for the first time. It is diverse in every way and there are some definite tear jerkers in there. Look out for my full review next week!

Looking at how many blog posts I’ve written this week has definitely made me feel very productive and back on top of things. I’m planning on adding more of a variety of posts and have some great ideas planned. I’m also toying with the idea of some guest posts so if you’d be interested do let me know, I’ll also be reaching out to people via Twitter once I’ve got the idea straight in my mind.

I’m going to Bristol tomorrow to visit my darling Rosie and she has planned what sounds like the most glorious bookish day for us! I’ve nver been book shopping i Britsol and I haven’t seen Rosie since April so we are both excited!

Next weekend I am going to London with my brother for a Harry Potter filled weekend! We are going to the studios on Friday and seeing both parts of Cursed Child on Saturday – really looking forward to it and will of course blog about it after!

I’m also trying to use my Instagram more now so if you’re interested in following me there my username is kellysrambles. Look at the beautiful print I received as a pre-order goodie from Stripes Books. Isn’t it gorgeous?!

Have a wonderful week! ❤

  1. No *wonder* I can’t keep up with you! You’re posting DAILY?! Wow— #BloggerGoals. I am totally interested in helping out with guest posts, too! Let me know if there is any way I can help out. 🙂 I love expanding to other corners of the blogosphere.

    This week I’m finishing up reading Anne of Windy Poplars and The Djinn Falls in Love and Other Stories. The first for my #AnneReadAlong2017 and the second for #ARCAugust. I’m sooo behind on ARCs! Last week I announced my participation in #ARCAugust, and published two book reviews. That’s a big deal for me! I’m typically a 2-posts-per-week-at-the-last-second kind of girl. I hope to start getting back on top of this, but we’ll see how it goes.

    • Haha, you’re doing a pretty good job at keeping up with me, Jackie, don’t worry! Okay great, I’m forming an idea and will be sure to let you know when I’m looking for people to guest post 🙂 would love to have you on my blog!

      I shall go and check out your posts now. I’m sort of taking part in #ArcAugust but it’s not quite going to plan!!

  2. I finished reading Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda this week and I loved it! It was so good and definitely lived up to the hype! I’ve seen Editing Emma around quite a lot lately, and it seems like a great read. I also can’t wait for the release of Warbringer, it’s one of my most anticipated releases, along with Warcross. I enjoyed your bullet journal post! I’ve been thinking of writing a post on my bullet journal at some point, but I’ll probably wait to do a September set up.

  3. I’ve read a few books this week, which I’ve enjoyed ; One Silver Summer, Alex Approximately, Confetti and Cake and I’m now nearly finished Simply the Quest.
    My posts have been my July reviews, a guest post for my 2st ever blog tours (for Confetti and Cake 😊) and I had an author interview with Jess Butterworth, whose book has been one of my absolute favourites of 2017.
    Have really enjoyed all of yours this week (especially the bullet journal one 😍)

    • Ah thanks, Amy. I always mean to blog more about my journal but kind of forget. I do have another bullet journal planned soon though! I’ve not read any of the books that you have but I do have a copy of Simply the Quest to read! 🙂
