I’m currently reading Lola and the Boy Next Door, and actually enjoying it even more than I did Anna and the French Kiss! I really like Lola as a character; I love the descriptions of her dressmaking and all the fabulous outfits she wears. Life needs as much glitter as possible :)

This is a power at our fingertips – showing our readers that we are all fundamentally and identically human regardless of what we look like, who we worship or who we snog.
James Dawson on diversity in children’s and YA books (via The Bookseller)
Sep 18, 2014
Diversity is so incredibly important in literature — especially children’s literature. Growing up, I didn’t often see people who looked like me positively represented in the media I consumed and I want better for the kids and teens of today and tomorrow. They deserve to see themselves in the pages of the books they read.

I went to a wedding at the weekend with Gabs, and they had a photobooth with fun props for everyone to enjoy! I really want a 1920s-style hat now…
