It's been quite a while since I last blogged and for that I apologise. But I am still here. My work load this year has been crazy (pretty sure I said that last year. Who knew it could get worse?!) and it all just became too much to blog and put in the kind of effort I like to with uni. If something is worth doing, it's worth doing right. Right? So sadly, the blog has been on hiatus for most of the year.

But! The semester has three weeks left and then I am all yours again. In the meantime though, I bought tickets earlier this year to attend the Celebrate Reading YA Conference at The Literature Centre in Fremantle (That's in Western Australia, only 30mins from Perth).
I am so beyond excited because some of my favourite authors will be speaking, providing insight into Australian YA literature, which as you guys know, is kinda my thing! It is a two-day conference with each author speaking multiple times. In my eyes, it pretty much can't get any better with John Marsden, Melina Marchetta, Vikki Wakefield and A.J. Betts attending. But it does, get better I mean. Kirsty Murray, J.C. Burke, Anthony Eaton and Michael Gerard Bauer will also be speaking. I mean, seriously!
So to get to my point, the conference is this Friday and Saturday and I will be posting on Facebook and Twitter over the two days with all the awesome stuff that happens.
