TBR, Young Adult, Young Adult Books


I’m going to YALC *squeals*..

So now that I have a ticket to YALC on Saturday I need to officially begin my YALC to be read list. There are so many amazing authors attending and doing signings on the Saturday, but typically I haven’t read every authors book. I have no idea how YALC works as I’ve never been before, so any survival tips would be extremely useful and greatly appreciated!

Here is my TBR list for YALC:

1. Big Bones by Laura Dockrill

Thankfully, I started on my YALC TBR at the start of July in the hope that I would be attending and so I have already read Big Bones. I really enjoyed this contemporary book and would give it about 4 stars, so I would love the chance to have my copy signed.

2. My Heart Goes Bang by Keris Stainton

I recently finished My Heart Goes Bang and will be uploading a review asap. I also really enjoyed this contemporary as it reminded me of my own university experience and again I would love to get my copy signed by the author!

3. Eve of Man by Giovanna and Tom Fletcher

I’ve been following Tom since the early days of McFly to his picture books and The Creakers and The Christmasaurus, so I was thrilled to hear he was writing a YA book with his lovely author-wife Giovanna. I also enjoy watching Tom & Gi’s vlogs on YouTube so it would be lovely to meet them, I haven’t read Eve of Man yet though but it is up next on my TBR.

4. Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

This book has been one of the most hyped books on Bookstagram this year and that might possibly be why I have yet to read it. But since the author is attending YALC I would really like to read it before then and have my copy signed.

5. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

I own two copies of this book but I haven’t read either, somehow I won both in different giveaways. Samantha Shannon is a pretty well-known and loved author so if I don’t get around to reading her book I might avoid the queue (and the extra weight in my bag) and just spend some free time around YALC.

I’ve got to admit, I’m dreading the weight of my back pack already! Anyone else attending YALC this year? If you’re a returner, feel free to send some survival tips my way!

Bookishly yours,

  1. Yay! So glad you’re coming! ☺️ I had so much fun my first and only time going to YALC (I’m going this year too, as you know, so it’ll be my second time). I’d say to bring some snacks and water definitely, also maybe bring a small suitcase? I didn’t when I went but I also didn’t take a lot with me, but I did bring a lot back and would have probably saved my shoulders had I brought a suitcase! Wear comfy shoes was another tip I saw, I can’t remember what I had on, I think my converse, and they were okay! I’m so excited to meet up with you on the Saturday 😁😁 we’re gonna have so much fun!

    1. Comfortable shoes are a must! Haha i really can’t imagine dragging a little suitcase along! I can’t go too crazy with buying things so I’m hoping a back pack and a tote will suffice… we’ll see! Okay snacks and water, I’ll bring plenty. It’s gonna be so cool!
