2016: The Year Ahead in Youth Literature

2016: The Year Ahead in Youth Literature

2015 is almost over, can you believe it!?  Only 2.5 weeks to go, how crazy is that!  I honestly don’t know where this year has gone, but the last couple of months has been filled with bookish events for me.  I went to an amazing event on 1 December 2015, 2016: The Year Ahead in Youth Literature hosted by the Centre for Youth Literature.  Representatives from a number of publishing houses attended, filling us in on all the wonderful books they have for us next year, and there are so many I’m looking forward to reading!

Hello!  Remember me?  *waves sheepishly* I don’t know where the year’s gone.  Honestly, I feel like it was only yesterday that it was Christmas and here we are in the lead up to Christmas once more.  So where have I been? This year has not been a great year for me, blogging wise – personally, it’s been a fantastic year!  But it’s been my personal life which seems to have had the most impact on my ability to blog and I have to be honest, I’m not entirely happy about that. It started when my cousin arrived from Italy a little over 12 months ago, staying for two months.  She stayed with my parents in Melbourne, and at the time […]
