YALC HAUL + GIVEAWAY

Hi everyone,

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of attending YALC (What the heck is that? find out here) in London, and I had an AMAZING time! 
I'm going to have my whole recap telling you exactly what happened posted as soon as I get my sister to send me her photos, but today I just wanted to show you all of the books and free swag that I picked up at the event.


THE BOOKS:
There were SO MANY great books on sale at YALC, most of them cheaper than they would normally be, so it was really hard to limit myself and stay on budget! I'm super excited about all the books I got and I'm hoping to read them as soon as I can.
1. ANOTHER DAY - DAVID LEVITHAN
I love David Levithan, and one of my favorite books by him is Everyday, so obviously I had to pick up the sequel/companion novel as soon as possible. I'm very, very excited to read this one!

2: AM I NORMAL YET - HOLLY BOURNE
Holly Bourne is another author who I absolutely adore, and I have been really excited for this book for a really long time. I'm so happy to finally have my hands on it and I can't wait to read it!

3: BIRDY - JESS VALLANCE
I keep hearing about this book. It sounds cool. I got a free tote bag when I purchased it. There's nothing else to say.

4: NOUGHTS AND CROSSES GRAPHIC NOVEL - MALORIE BLACKMAN, IAN EDDINGTON AND JOHN AGGS
Noughts and crosses is one of my favorite books, so I'm really interested to see how it's adapted into graphic novel format. I looked at the last page and started crying, so I'm almost certain it's going to break me. I got this book signed by Malorie Blackman, but I'll talk more about that in my recap.

5: ALL I KNOW NOW - CARRIE HOPE FLETCHER
As much as I love Carrie Hope Fletcher and her youtube channel (and seriously, I love her a lot), I wasn't actually planning on picking up this book. The only reason I got it was because I wanted to get it signed, but now I have the book in my hands I'm actually really excited to read it!

THE SWAG:
Here's the thing about YALC, there was a lot of free stuff.
Here's the thing about me, I cannot resist free stuff. 
This is all the free swag I got that I'm actually keeping for myself. The rest of it will be part of a give away (more on that in a minute).
