I celebrated my seventh blogoversary in January.
I attended the ‘Be True to Yourself’ panel at Waterstones Piccadilly featuring Jandy Nelson, Sara Barnard, Alice Oseman, Lisa Williamson and Katherine Webber.
I went to the World Book Day 2017 announcement where I was in the same room as Jacqueline Wilson!
I got to interview Lauren Oliver at Carmelite House.
I went to a 2017 preview at David Fickling Books.
I got to be in the press pen at the European premiere of ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ – I was a metre away from JK Rowling!
I started to really work on my bookstagram and I’m really proud of how far forward I’ve pulled it in the last few months. I’d LOVE for you to have a look: https://www.instagram.com/solittletimeforbooks
