When Life Gets In The Way...

So ever since I've started book blogging I haven't really told the people who read my blog (if their are regular readers of my blog) much about myself, so I thought that I would do that now...

Hi, 

I'm Amy, 

I'm 18 years old and I live in England, 

And,

I have left school and have got into my first choice University which I start in October, 

This means that just sometimes life can get in the way...

           I suppose that this is some weird life update post and an explanation why I haven't uploaded a blog post since Thursday meaning that I missed both a Friday and Sunday post. This is because on Thursday I got the results for me to get into my choice Uni that I have been preparing for this journey and my living room has changed into a University stock pile. This means that I have had limited time to read which also means no time read these and limited time to write blog posts. Over the weekend I also went to Summer In The City (a YouTube convention in London) which again meant a lack of time to write blog posts and yet again life just got in the way.
            The fact is this may be the first life update post of many. Going to university is an unexpected journey and I don't know if I will be able to carry on making them as frequently as I do now although I love really love making them. I am saying this as if Uni starts tomorrow but we have a month of as many blog posts as humanly possible. 

Live in the now!

Thank you for reading this and I hope it made some kind of sense. 

See you Soon, 

Amy

2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...

Diversity Bingo 2017

To continue with my aim of reading diversely, I decided at the beginning of the year that I was going to do the Diversity Bingo Challenge. The idea of this being to read 36 books and complete the bingo-like sheet with the aim being to read as much diverse fiction as possible. Like a lot of people in the bookish community, I wanted to continue reading more diverse books and thought this would be the way to do it. This post is to update myself and others on my progress in this challenge so if you are looking for recommendations in what to read please look here, herehere and here. So let's get started...
