YALC 2019: The Books I Need to Read

It’s coming up to one of my favourite times of year again…YALC TIME! This will be my third year attending YALC and while I have less authors to see this year in comparison to previous years, I definitely have a TBR list that I need to get through in the next 1-2 months.

This year, I’ll be seeing a total of 12/13 authors. I say that because I want to meet Samantha Shannon again, but I really don’t want to drag two copies of The Priory of the Orange Tree around because my body will definitely be aching after that.

There definitely aren’t as many authors for me to see this year in comparison to 2017 and 2018 but I am still excited nevertheless. These events aren’t just about authors and books for me but also about friends. Despite not having as many authors to see this year, I do still have a small TBR of books to read to prepare myself for YALC.

This list was a little longer until I read a few of the books on this list at the end of May/beginning of June, but I still have this little lot to read.

Here are the books I’m planning to read for YALC…

  1. Heartstopper Vol. 2 by Alice Oseman (This isn’t out until July and may even be a YALC purchase!)
  2. Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne img_8287
  3. A Girl Called Shameless by Laura Stevens
  4. S.T.A.G.S. by M. A. Bennett
  5. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
  6.  The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh
  7. The Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

Here’s to hoping I get through all of these books in time for YALC! It’s a fairly short TBR but with working full time, starting my next qualification AND trying to maintain some social life too, I feel it will be a bit of a challenge!

Are you going to YALC this year? Which authors are you going to see? What books are on your TBR?

  1. I’m hoping to go on the Saturday, but haven’t booked anything yet! I need to read some more Schwab books as well as Priory so I know if I want to buy a copy!


  2. I’m not going as I’ll be interning then (I have never managed to get to a single book con for some reason…) I hope you have a great time though ! There are so many interesting authors going
