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

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:

- Being Billy - Phil Earle
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)
