Hello loves! With hot guys reading on trains, two massive trailers, a shiny new tv deal for a certain UKYA author and Judith Kerr stealing everyone’s hearts at #LBF16, it’s been a busy one!
I’m also trialling a slightly new format this week, so snuggle up, have a read and let me know what you think, won’t ya? ❤

Bookshelves & Biros Round-Up
Guys, stop what you’re doing. I’ve done it. I’ve found the best Instagram account ever. Behold: Hot Dudes Reading.
Note: I’d like to point out that obviously, I am a fan of this Insta on account of the gratuitous bookish boy viewing, but the captions are also hilarious. Check it out.
Trailers for Fantastic Beasts & A Monster Calls
Oh mama has this been a good week for book adaption trailers or what? That’s a rhetorical question: we all know its been amazing.
First we get a trailer for A Monster Calls, which I bought the other day to read on holiday and honestly, the day can’t come quick enough. This trailer gave me the works: goosebumps, excitement and the undeniable knowledge that this book and film will make me sob. Also, bonus points for a stellar cast.
EVERYONE knows about this now (apart from my Mum, who has absolutely zero interest in the Potterverse and thinks Ron is actually called ‘Rod’) so I won’t say anything other than this: OMGYAAAAAAAAAAS.
To be honest the excitement of this week is just getting to be too much. The Young Adult Lit Con finally released a list of authors who will be attending the London convention and its like a roll call of everyone who’s anyone in YA at the moment. I can’t wait for them to release the schedule, please do let me know if you’re going so we can fangirl/boy together!
So there are currently no details I can give you other than the fact that it is definitely happening. I’m so intrigued to see what they’re going to do with O’Neill’s hauntingly raw, surgically sharp novel about a girl who is raped at a party. With O’Neill herself involved in the writing I have high hopes, but I know it won’t be easy watching either way.
Added to the Bookshelves & Biros Wishlist
Forget shading swirling landscapes and staying within the lines of magical forests chaps, because we can now settle down and colour in our own Instagram posts. I’m not sure if this is really cool, or hideously narcissistic. I still want one though.
So I’ve just finished Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare, and I feel like a Parabatai candle will soothe my soul. Please, tell me it will.
That’s it for this week! Have a bloody lovely little weekend, won’t you?
