Showcase Sunday #54: YALC Edition

It's Sunday and that means one thing; Showcase Sunday a fun weekly meme hosted by Vicky over @Books, Biscuits and Tea. It's a great way of showing off what we've bought, borrowed and received this week.
So I went to LFCC (London Film & Comic Con) last weekend. I've gone to a few of these events since my first last year and knew I'd definitely be there after they announced that the first YALC (Young Adult Literature Convention) would take place there this year. Super excited I dragged along a huge back of books to get signed for the weekend. Out of the 10 or more that I took I managed to get three signed. Three. I bought two and got those signed too but I was so disappointed. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the entire weekend but Saturday was manic and after waiting in Rainbow Rowells' line for over an hour and a half I just couldn't do it again. I didn't get to any of the panels or the talks or workshops as it was just so busy and I wanted to see the stalls in the rest of the hall and some of the big guests. Plus some of the authors I wanted to see I didn't see there at all or they had already left without my knowledge. Amazing event, hats off to the organisers but I really hope that if there's one in the future it's in a separate hall or a separate event all together. One thing I loved was the free swag tables and the little book corner with bean bags and a book wall. Anyway on to the books. There's quite a few here that I bought before the event, for the event and during the event. Lots of graphic novels from LFCC too :)

YALC Book TBR!

I completely failed with the YALC readathon last week. Seriously I was so busy and so tired I managed to read just one book. ONE book! *shakes head* I have a whole pile of books that I want to get through but realistically it's not going to happen unless I read every night this week and next week and spend this weekend with my nose in a book 24/7. Do-able? I'll really surprise myself if I get through the pile below! I'd really like to read as much as possible though as I'm really looking forward to meeting some of the authors. It's going to be so busy so I'd like to know beforehand who I want to see 100% and then if there's time get other books signed. But the two days are going to be so busy and I want to do so much more than just mingle in the book area. Seriously LFCC is so much fun and I can't wait to be amongst the hustle and bustle again, trawling through all the stands and merchandise, looking at all the cosplayers and meeting the stars for a photo or autograph. Anyway, I really hope to get through some of the books below in the next week and a half! *fingers crossed*


Are you going to YALC? What books do you hope to read before? Also who are you most excited to meet?
