How are we all doing now that things are gradually getting back to a “new normal”? I’m starting to really resent that phrase and just want to be able to spend time with my friends again doing things I enjoy! 😫
I found this Book Tag on Alice and her Bookshelf’s blog. She has some amazing content so do stop by and see her post!

My book festival:
Author Lineup – name your top three authors:
Living on the doorstep of the Cheltenham Literature Festival I’ve had the opportunity to meet so many amazing authors including Salman Rushdie, Sarah J Maas and Ian McEwan but there are definitely some authors that are still at the top of the ‘want to meet’ list:
J.K. Rowling – I would just love to meet the person behind the phenomenon that is Harry Potter
Neil Gaiman – I bet he is really funny and would be quite quirky and entertaining
Carlos Ruiz Zafon – just because I absolutely love his writing and would really like to hear where the inspirations for his stories come from
The Official Schedule – how do you determine what books you are going to read next?
To be honest, my books are pretty much stacked up and my shelves are overflowing so I normally just go through the stack in the order that I want. The exceptions to this rule are if I have to read something for an author request or through NetGalley; alternatively, at the minute I’m trying to clear some of my backlist books that have been on my shelves for years so I’ll alternate a newer book with an older one. It’s kind of all random to be honest!
ARC Drops – what ARC would you wait hours in line for?
The new Cormoran Strike novel Troubled Blood by Robert Galbraith and the last in the Cursebreakers series by Brigid Kemmerer, A Vow So Bold and Deadly.
The Swag – what bookish merch/pre-order incentives/etc. is your favourite?
I have a pretty stationery addiction so any kind of stationery or notebooks; something practical that I can use! Not a big fan of the pins as I never know what to do with them.
The Panels – what topic would you love to see some of your favourite authors talk about?
Conservationism in literature: how our stories could influence a greener planet. I’m not necessarily talking about climate change and global warming etc. as they are bigger headlines and often talked about, but ways in which we can save our endangered animals and ecological systems so that Mother Nature can be sustained for our future generations.
Yallfest, Yallwest, BookCon/BookExpo, YALC, Etc – what book festival/con would you go to if you had the choice?
I go to Cheltenham Literature Festival every year as it’s so amazing and right on my doorstep. I’d like to visit the Hay-on-Wye Book Festival as I’ve heard it is very good and also YALC in London.
Have you ever been to any book festivals yourself? Where would you go if you had the opportunity? Feel free to tag yourself and as always, drop me a comment to chat!
