Top 10 Y’allFest Haul

By: Taylor

I just got back from Y’allFest! Woo! It was amazing as always. Lots of books, lots of fellow book nerds, and lots of authors! If you haven’t heard of Y’allFest, it’s a  young adult book festival in Charleston, SC. There are book signings, author panels, ARC (advanced reading copy) giveaways, and so much more! It’s an amazing event and this is my 3rd year going and it just gets better and better each year. I love going to get tons of books and attend a few panels, but mostly I like going to experience the amazingness of the YA book community. There’s so many people there and while you wait in line for an ARC or for a panel or signing, you strike up conversations about books and life and you end up with a new friend and a few more book recommendations. It’s honestly just so wonderful. I highly, highly recommend this festival. On another hand, since I just got back, I decided to share my Y’allFest haul with you guys! So here’s a list of the top 10 ARC’s* I got from Y’allFest!

YA Quarterly Book Haul

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! You totally sang that in your head didn’t you? No, it’s not Christmas. It’s not Halloween. It’s not the Superbowl. It’s much better than all of those combined! I might be overselling it, but I can’t help myself, I just love when I get to do these articles! It’s time for another YA Quarterly Book Haul! And it’s a good haul too. I got a few of these books for my birthday, I bought a few a gifts for myself for my birthday, and others I’ve picked up over the last few months because let’s be honest, it’s really hard to be a human sometimes and people are always saying to practice self love and it just so happens that books are my love language. Anyways, on with the show!

2nd Quarterly YA Book Haul

by Taylor

It’s that time again, fellow geeks! Another quarter has passed and I have bought more books because life is too short and I don’t know how to tell myself no. I am in constant treat yourself mode. Though, this time I did try to control myself a bit. My birthday is coming up and we all know that I will end up buying myself at least 20 books as a gift to myself. Let’s get on with the haul!

Quarterly YA Book Haul

by Taylor
So, I don’t know about you, but I have a bad habit. I buy books. A lot of books. My To-Be-Read (TBR) pile is already enormous, but I just can’t stop myself. I see a book I want and most of the time I grab it. Everyday is a day to treat yourself to a book. While I may never be able to manage this book buying addiction, I thought I could at least share all the books I’ve bought so far this year and we could commiserate with each other over having way too many books and so little time to read them all. While I did manage to only buy 10 books so far this year, I have tried really hard to actually read some of the books I bought instead of just adding them to my Mt. Everest of TBR. So, without further ado, here is my quarterly YA books haul featuring some mini reviews! Continue reading
