LH reads, writes and researches children’s books. She's also a librarian, blogger, and makes pretty amazing chocolate brownies. Cake and books, what’s not to love?

I really love following UK YA Authors on Instagram. I want to find good books and cool people and author pets  and these accounts give me all that and more.  I’ve picked out some of my favourite images from several UK YA Authors on Instagram accounts for the purposes of this list. There’s plants, cakes and cats – basically the perfect internet trifecta.

New students at University of Leicester are being gifted a free copy of #thegoodimmigrant. As chosen by last year’s students. Every week this book seems to find new ways of getting into people’s lives. We never thought it. None of us. I’m so immensly proud of the team. Thanks University of Leicester. X
