Celebrating my MA with a mini book haul

Saturday, March 12, 2016

I've written before that I was studying for an MA in Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University, I think. I did modules on "the novel", the contemporary book market, and writing for children. I had to submit a full length novel. Mine was a Young Adult novel set in Yorkshire and came in at just under 70,000 words. I was very proud of it; it was a completed manuscript that I only need to do a little more work on before I feel it's ready to be submitted to agents and publishers.

Well, this week I got my result and I'm really happy to say I got a First! I've never got a First EVER, so I'm thrilled to have that as my result.

I treated myself to a few books to celebrate. I enjoyed Trouble by Non Pratt so I thought I'd give this book about a music festival a go. I love Rainbow Rowell so this novella was a no-brainer. Lastly, the Eve Ainsworth book was recommended when I bought the others, so I thought I'd add it!

Have you read any of these? Which should I pick up first?
