Did you miss the tags on here? Good, because thanks to popular demand, they’re going to make a return – but not as intensely as before.
I’ve decided that each month, I will post a tag on the third Thursday. It brings back the tags, which I really liked to do but felt they were taking up too much space from the original content, and it lets everyone know a little more about my reading habits and the like.

So, today’s one is the first in line, and has been borrowed from the fantastic Emma, who I am very very sure would be my real life best friend if we were to meet. My booktube, where I did some tags before, fell to the side, so I’m going to write up my answers instead.
Eason, one of Ireland’s biggest book shops, recently held the second instalment of Dept Con, a book event aimed specifically at readers of YA fiction. I fall firmly into that category, so I headed along to meet some of my favourite authors.
Challenge criteria: A science fiction novel.
A boy drowns, desperate and alone in his final moments. He dies.
Then he wakes, naked and bruised and thirsty, but alive.
This book did not fit any of my challenge criteria.
An eleven-year-old girl stops eating, but remains miraculously alive and well. A nurse, sent to investigate whether she is a fraud, meets a journalist hungry for a story.
It’s a constant struggle – with almost every hour in the day taken up from eating, sleeping, or working, it’s a little difficult to find time to flick through some pages. There are so many distractions and responsibilities that feel like you’re being torn away from your TBR, but there are so many ways to get back on track.
