london book tour!

Hello hello hello!

Last weekend I was lucky enough to be in one of my favourite places in the world: London. I had a fabulous couple of days seeing a bunch of shows with my gorgeous pal Amy, then reunited with Michaela who you may know from A Novel Idea (go check her blog out for amazing reviews and bookish content!).

We then did what we do best – troll through bookshops! It was a Sunday, so we were on a bit of a time constraint, but we still managed a good rummage through three amazing bookshops in the city!

I still have some books from when I was a baby like some fairytale and nursery rhyme books, but my favourite is Once There Were Giants because the little girl in it looked just like me!

Nina and her twin sister, Artemis, are far from normal. It’s hard to be when you grow up at the Watcher’s Academy, which is a bit different from your average boarding school. Here teens are trained as guides for Slayers—girls gifted with supernatural strength to fight the forces of darkness.

Instead she follows her instincts to heal, carving out a place for herself as the school medic.

Until the day Nina’s life changes forever.

When Charlotte Smith’s wealthy parents commit her beloved sister Phoebe to the infamous Goldengrove Asylum, Charlotte knows there’s more to the story than madness. She risks everything and follows her sister inside, surrendering her real identity as a privileged young lady of San Francisco society to become a nameless inmate, Woman 99.

The longer she stays, the more she realizes that many of the women of Goldengrove aren’t insane, merely inconvenient ― and that her search for the truth threatens to dig up secrets that some very powerful people would do anything to keep.

What does it mean to you to be bi?

For me, in straightforward terms, it means
this: I like men. I like women.

However, it never actually is that
straightforward, is it?

When I first came out to a few people,
their first response was to ask ‘but how
do you know you’re bi when you’ve only ever been with men
