UKYA

So rather than straightforward-ish book reviews, this is where you’ll find my posts about UKYA in general, whether it’s a Top 5, a discussion on a particular related topic or a round-up of an event (like a book launch or a convention like YALC/UKYAX/YAshot)… And at the bottom, you’ll find a photo gallery, full of UKYA related pics that don’t fit in my other posts- so book hauls, event shenanigans, author selfies, signatures, etc, anything I think you might wanna see!
