#YALCReadathon Sign-Up

You may have already seen some of my tweets about #YALCreadathon but if not, here is some more really important information about the upcoming readathon which will take place 23rd to the 29th June and will begin/end at midnight in whatever time zone you are currently in. 

This was an idea that Jess from Jess Hearts Books came up with in order to help people going to the Young Adult Literature Convention taking place this summer (or for fans of the authors in attendance!) to read some of the books before we go fangirl in their faces at YALC.  Together with Jess, Carly from Writing from the Tub and Vicky from Books, Biscuits and Tea we are going to provide sign-up posts, a twitter chat and lots of cool guest posts from authors and organisers of YALC.

If you're not sure which authors will be in attendance, here is the list:
  • Malorie Blackman
  • Holly Black
  • James Dawson
  • Sally Gardner
  • Sally Green
  • Matt Haig
  • Isobel Harrop
  • Charlie Higson
  • Will Hill
  • Derek Landy
  • Sophie McKenzie
  • Patrick Ness
  • Natasha Ngan
  • Meg Rosoff
  • Darren Shan
  • Holly Smale
  • Jonathan Stroud
  • Ruth Warburton
  • Holly Bourne

  • Lucy Saxon
  • Marcus Sedgwick
  • C J Skuse
  • James Smythe
  • Emma Vieceli
 I, for one, recently gathered together a whopping 25 unread books by authors going to YALC.  So, for me, this readathon will come in quite handy.

Some of the books that I'm going to focus on reading particularly are:

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
More Than This by Patrick Ness
Tinder by Sally Gardner
Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner
Blood Ties by Sophie McKenzie
Blood Ransom by Sophie McKenzie
Soulmates by Holly Bourne
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Picture Perfect by Holly Smale

I'd love if you wanted to join in on this with us, it's going to be so much fun!
