I…can’t quite believe I’m writing this. But a few days ago, I discovered that’d I’ve been shortlisted for the UKYABA’s – the UK Young Adult Blog Awards – under the category of “Most Inspirational”. WHAT?!?
I just wanted to make this post to acknowledge that you guys got me here, and I appreciate it with all my heart.
Soooo this announcement is coming late. And if you have me on any other social media platform then you’ve probably heard about it already, so apologies for the bombardment. But in case some of you folks missed out on it or haven’t seen a full run down of what it is…let me introduce to you, Myth-Take!

But I like the idea of pulling that number back down to double digits at least, and so when I saw Danielle’s (@ The Chronicles of Danielle) update post for her challenge of getting her TBR under 100 books, I thought I’d set myself the same challenge (I loved her post!).

This post has been a long time coming, meaning it’s also going be about a mile long. So grab a cup of tea folks, we’re gonna be here awhile. There’s been so many new discoveries lately, new products I use everyday and things I’m looking forward to, I just had to yell about them somewhere.
