With the gorgeous weather that we have had today in the U.K I thought it was the perfect day to post about festivals, even if it is looking unlikely that I will be attending any this year. A big thank you to the wonderful Jamie @ Bubbly Books for tagging me!

My book festival:
Author Lineup – name your top three authors:
- Malorie Blackman – her books impacted me so much when I was younger
- Sarah Knight – the anti-guru never fails to change the way I see things
- Jamie McGuire – I am never not in the mood to read one of her books
The Official Schedule – how do you determine what books you are going to read next?
I have so many books that I want to read and if I had them all honestly I would be so overwhelmed. A huge part of my decision is access. I used the Libby library app a lot and the books I want I usually have to put on hold so once that becomes available I tend jump straight to reading it. I don’t actually own a lot of books and I much prefer physical copies so I’m hoping actual libraries open again soon!
When I have a lot of books to read though it usually depends on my mood. If I need a little pick-me-up I’ll read a lighthearted romance and if I want something with more grit I’ll read a thriller.
ARC Drops – what ARC would you wait hours in line for?
Beach Read by Emily Henry – I have heard so many good things about this book and was so jealous of everyone who managed to get a copy of it! I wished for it on NetGalley but it’s not looking promising so I may just have to wait.
How to Disappear by Gillian McAllister – another one that I have seen so many other book bloggers receiving a copy of and it looks like my kind of book. Again I have requested it on NetGalley so fingers crossed!
The Swag – what bookish merch/pre-order incentives/etc. is your favourite?
I mean bookmarks have to be on the list. I have a huge collection of bookmarks somewhere but I never seem to be able to find them when I need them and use scraps of paper. Either way, bookmarks are an essential! I also just love t-shirts so book themed t-shirts would be fab.
The Panels – what topic would you love to see some of your favourite author’s talk about?
I would love to see the author’s tackle the topic of mental health. It is a topic that is so dear to me and something that I would love to hear how authors write about it, whether it is from their personal experience or the experience of those close to them. I would love to know how they deal with with the topic when adding these elements of mental and emotional struggle to their characters. Also a good theme this week as it is Mental Health Awareness Week in the U.K.
Yallfest, Yallwest, BookCon/BookExpo, YALC, Etc – what book festival/con would you go to if you had the choice?
If I got the opportunity I would love to go to all of them! But if I did have to pick one I would choose BookCon purely because it is in New York Cities and that will forever be one of my favourite cities.
