Getting Ready for YALLWEST

Who else is going to YALLWEST? Some of my favorite authors will be there, and I’m so excited to meet them!


Mary E. Pearson

The Remnant Chronicles series

Leigh Bardugo


Marie Rutkoski


Richelle Mead

Vampire Academy Covers

Simone Elkeles

Perfect Chemistry Trilogy

To properly prepare, I’ve been reading as many books by authors who will be there as possible. They were already in my TBR list, so I finally had an excuse to read and neglect other things. So far, I’ve finished

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. This is a new favorite. Absolutely LOVED this book!


Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. Also LOVED this one. All the swoon!

Shatter me 1

The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski. Should have bumped this up in my reading queue forever ago!


Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini


Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch


To complete my current reading goals, I need to get these read before YALLWEST. Hope I make it!

Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne


The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski


Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo


The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead


Also I’m so excited for The Crown’s Game! It comes out after YALLWEST, but Evelyn Skye will be there.


Needless to say, I have to bring an extra suitcase JUST for all the books I need to get signed! The only thing that could make YALLWEST better is if Rae Carson and Robin LaFevers also attended. Then I think I might die of happiness. This is a YA booklover’s dream. So excited that I get to chat with other YA historical fantasy authors and some of my fellow authors with Feiwel and Friends Publishing!
