So this year I’m not going to do a YALC wrap-up post as I did these little daily summaries during the YALC weekend:
However, I do have an epic list of book recommendations for you from authors who attended YALC 2017. In total, I spoke to 39 authors (I’m not sure how I managed that!) and they gave me over 60 book recommendations.
The authors I approached were, once again, really generous with their time and unsurprisingly had lots of YA books to recommend. Many gave me more than one, some had whole lists!
Shout-outs to Non Pratt and Katherine Webber who kindly wrote out their book recs on post-it notes for me; Jennifer E Smith who patiently listed all her recommendations while I typed them into my phone; and Will Hill who had so many books to recommend I think I forgot some (most) of them!
I really enjoyed talking to all these authors about books and putting this list together. I’ve definitely found some new books I want to read and I hope you will too! (I’ve included Goodreads links so you can add them straight into your TBR.)
Happy reading! 🙂
