YALC Reading List (YALC #1)

It's now YALC month and I can barely contain my excitement. Check back every Monday in July for a different post about the event, from what I'm reading to what I'm packing, what the big day entails and my wrap up. #YALC2017.

YALC is the UK’s Young Adult Literature Convention:
a celebration of the very best young adult books and authors.

I did one day of YALC last year and it was exhausting and exhilarating in equal measure, so I can't wait to do the whole weekend this year. Give me a shout if you're going to be there because I'd love to meet some fellow bookworms.

There are a lot of authors coming this year that I've already met last year at YALC, at YA Shot and at UKYACX and I am super excited to meet them again and have an opportunity to fangirl be their personal cheerleader.

As I was looking at the list of authors attending I noticed that there are a fair few I haven't read yet. And as I looked a little closer I realised that I actually have a lot of their books sitting on my shelf right now, unread.
As you can see, I'm planning to read two YALC books each week before the event. If you follow me on Twitter you can even have your say as to which I will read and when and I'll be holding regular polls to decide which one to pick up next.

Are you going to YALC? What's on your reading list?

  1. I'm going Saturday and Sunday. I'm so excited. I've got the Square Root of summer on my YALC TBR too.

    1. Have to admit, Square Root of Summer is a bit two birds one stone - it's also the August SundayYA bookclub pick!

    1. I went alone last year and just did the Saturday. I booked my ticket and train super last minute and it was so scary but also so worth it. I kind of bumbled around on my own but did get to meet some fantastic people. Also there was free lemonade and ice cream haha.

  3. I've just gotten Girlhood and After The Fire today! Though i think I read that Cat Clarke cancelled YALC :( I still can't wait to read it as part of the Zoella book club. I haven't got the others you mentioned yet though, my list seems far too long to finish in a month haha xx

    1. I know, I just read that :( A little bit gutted, but it's on my TBR anyway because of the Zoella Book Club. I've heard so many good things about After The Fire.

  6. I've never heard on YALC or any of these books. I've been trying to read more lately. Especially the classics I should have already read.

  7. I really seriously wish I can go! I've missed last year's YALC so I hope I can make it this year. I have at least two authors that I really want to meet and also V.E. Schwab books on my shelf waiting to be read! Huhuu x Ain (www.captaineverland.co.uk)

    I've just started Girlhood and have LOADS of books I want to read before YALC. I don't think I'll get around to all of them though.
