YALC Readathon Sign Up (#YALCReadathon)

The lovely Carly from Writing from the Tub is hosting a readathon from the 23rd to the 29th of June for us to read as many books by authors attending the YALC as possible! I've never actually signed up for a readathon before but I just couldn't resist this one!

If you want to join me you can find Carly's sign up post HERE where she has all the readathon rules and details.

You can also find a full list of all the author's who will be at YALC HERE.

I'm uesless at deciding in advance which books I will be in the mood to read so I thought I'd list all the suitable books that are currently on my to read pile here and then I can make my mind up nearer the time which ones take my fancy. Also this list might give you some inspiration to join me :o)

Malorie Blackman - Knife Edge, Checkmate & Double Cross (I may re-read Noughts & Crosses first though)

Holly Black - White Cat & Tithe

James Dawson - Say Her Name

Sally Gardner - Maggot Moon & The Double Shadow

Sally Green - Half Bad

Will Hill - Battle Lines

Derek Landy - Skulduggery Pleasant

Sophie McKenzie - Casting Shadows, Split Second, Blood Ties & Girl, Missing

Patrick Ness - A Monster Calls, The Ask and the Answer & Monsters of Men

Natasha Ngan - The Elites

Ruth Warburton - Witch Finder, A Witch in Love & A Witch Alone (I might re-read A Witch in Winter too)

Cat Clarke - Undone

Sarah Crossan - Breathe

Kim Curran - Shift

Phil Earle - Being Billy, Saving Daisy, Heroic & The Bubble Wrap Boy

Nick Lake - In Darkness & Blood Ninja

Julie Mayhew - Red Ink

Sarra Manning - Adorkable & French Kiss

Amy McCulloch - The Oathbreaker's Shadow

Anthony McGowan - Hello Darkness

Andy Robb - Geekhood: Close Encounters of the Girl Kind

Rainbow Rowell - Attachments & Fangirl

Marcus Sedgwick - White Crow & Dark Satanic Mills

So as you can see I have plenty of books to choose from! I think the trouble will be which one to start with LOL.

UPDATE 30th June:

I had a fantastic time taking part in the Readathon & read some fantastic books (reviews to follow ASAP).

I thought it would be nice to include a list of the books I read here:

  1. Battle Lines - Will Hill
  2. Half Bad - Sally Green
  3. Split Second - Sophie McKenzie
  4. White Cat - Holly Black
  5. Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell
  6. Being Billy - Phil Earle
I also made a start on The Oathbreaker's Shadow by Amy McCulloch but didn't manage to finish it in time.

I'm going to try to make the other books on this list a priority throughout July so we'll see how many more I can get through between now and YALC :o)


  1. Aw I'm so glad you decided to sign up :D. And you certainly have a gazillion choices when it comes to the readathon. You've just reminded me of loads I need to add to my list!x

    1. Thanks for hosting the readathon Carly, I really enjoyed taking part (now I just have to get my butt in gear and review the books I read LOL)

  2. Thanks for signing up with us! I have so many of these on my own TBR. Really hope you check out Undone, Adorkable, and the Rainbow Rowell's! I LOVED them. :)

    1. Thanks for all the organising you guys did Jess, it was so much fun taking part :o) I read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell & really enjoyed it. I wish I'd had more time to read all of the books on my list but I'm going to try and make books on this list my priority until YALC gets here
