YALC Highlights! [The Little Contemporary Corner Guest Post]

YALC Highlights!
[The Little Contemporary Corner Guest Post]

It’s hard to believe it’s been over a week since YALC finished already. I still can’t stop telling people about it and my new-found love for Juno Dawson. <3 I’ve written a post about the books I got while I was there, but I still need to write a post all about what I did and who I met. I’ll get around it soon, I promise!

For now, I’m welcoming my pal Sarah from The Little Contemporary Corner to tell you all about her YALC best bits. Over to you, Sarah!

Hello!

This isn’t Charlotte, I have been given the rights to the blog for today to tell you all about my YALC experience. As most of you must know by now, me and Charlotte both attended YALC this year together and had a wonderful bonding weekend over a lot of pasta and running.

YALC 2017, Part 1: My Haul!

YALC 2017, Part 1: My Haul!

This weekend was one of my favourite weekends in AGES. It’s Monday morning, I got back late last night, and I want to go straight back again. I miss YALC already 🙁

To make myself feel better, I’m going to share my haul with you!

I spent 3 days in London with a bunch of book nerds and I LOVED IT. In the first in a series of YALC 2017 posts, I share my book haul!

I did all three days and it’s the first time that I’ve ever been to a whole convention. I loved it so much! I managed to bag so much free stuff, buy some great books, and meet (and fall in love with) some amazing authors. In the next few posts, I’m going to write all about my YALC experience. I’ll split it up into my haul, what I did there, and my tips for first-time YALCers. This first post will be all about the stuff I managed to get over the three days!

The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr – Book Review

The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr – Book Review

The One Memory of Flora Banks is another one of the books on my YALC reading list. I’ve been hearing about this book a lot on social media, and I’ve never picked up a copy myself. With Emily Barr attending YALC next month, it gave me a reason to read it!

The One Memory of Flora Banks is another one of the books on my YALC reading list. I’ve been hearing about this book a lot, so I finally reviewed it!

How do you know who to trust when you can’t even trust yourself?

Flora has amnesia.

She can’t remember anything day-to-day: the joke her friend made, the instructions her parents gave her, how old she is.

Then she kisses someone she shouldn’t – and the next day she remembers it.
It’s the first time she’s remembered anything since she was ten.

But the boy is gone.

I look at my hands. One of them says ‘FLORA be brave’

My YALC Reading List

My YALC Reading List

One thing about me: I’ve never been to a convention of any kind. I’ve always wanted to go to things like Comic-Con, but I’ve just never really had chance. This year though, I’m SO EXCITED because I’m going to YALC (Young Adult Lit Con) with my friend Sarah from The Little Contemporary Corner!

This year, I'm going to YALC (Young Adult Lit Con) with my friend Sarah from The Little Contemporary Corner. Here's my YALC reading list!

We’re going to all 3 days and staying in a cute Airbnb. The full author list is out now and I can’t wait to meet them all and get some of my books signed! Some of my friends who are going have written YALC TBR lists, so I thought I’d do the same. Here’s a list of books I’m going to try and read before YALC!
