2018 Bucket List: I Finally Went to the Cinema by Myself

Love Simon Title

Hello book lovers! Guess who is finally free and on summer break! This girl! I have so much planned for this summer with this blog and my YouTube channel which makes me so happy and I am ready to take on all of my goals.

Hello book lovers! Today I thought that I would do a bit of a lifestyle discussion after sharing a very stressful night of research for a paper on my Instagram and getting a number of followers requesting that I do this type of blog post.

Hello book lovers! Today is a bit of a different post but that is because I had an incredible, unforgettable, and life-changing experience a few weeks ago and have finally found the time to share it with you.

On Wednesday, 07 February, I went to the Hachette publishing house in London with my university’s publishing degree students to have a three-hour visit. Now before I get into all of the things that made me fall even more in love and eager to have a career in publishing, let’s just enjoy this photo of me which completely sums up my entire day. I almost cried three times, no joke. Continue reading “An Unforgettable Day at Hachette”
