I had a great trip to BEA 2012!

I will be giving a few of these away, so stay tuned! I’m pretty sure I’m going to read The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater first!

Author Signings

I stopped at a lot of author signings but only got 3 of the signed! Those would be Fathomless, Shine, and Keeper of the  Lost Cities. The other lines were either incredibily too long (The Curiosities) or later than then I wanted to stay at the show (Darker Still).

  1. Nice haul! You got some good books there! And it sounds like you had an amazing time!

    Honestly, I have no clue which I would start with. I’d likely write down all the titles, throw them in a hat, and randomly draw one!

  2. I t hink I’m getting an arc of FATHOMLESS, yay! I have THE SPINDLERS, WHAT’S LEFT OF ME, and THE DARKEST MINDS to read and I don’t know what to read first! I also have FALSE MEMORY and SKYLARK. Oh, I want to read SON and POISON PRINCESS, nice! i snagged three of those Macmillan galleys as well! PRODIGY, good luck! Can’t wait for it! Enjoy all your new ARCS 🙂

  3. Yay, you got lots of great books! I went to BEA too. I am reading Falling Kingdoms and so far I like it. So I recommend that one.

  4. Lots of great reading in your future! The only one of those I’ve read is Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I was attracted by the cover and the story itself was interesting, not your usual YA in my opinion.

  5. Holy awesomesauce! What a great BEA haul. I absolutely loved The Passage and am dying for October for The Twelve.
    I’m super jealous you got SON- I am so psyched for that as well.

  6. Thanks so much for visiting my blog during Armchair BEA. I’ve only just gotten the time to return everyone’s visit!
    Awesome haul you got there. I so wish we had something as good as that here in Australia.

  7. How awesome/cool to see the spine of my ARC in your pile. 🙂 FWIW This is my first time seeing the spine. They printed the ARCs in a rush for BEA and haven’t sent me any copies yet.
    I’m hoping to plan an official “cover reveal” soon… But if you’d like to add a thumbnail of it to this post, shoot me an e-mail and I’ll send you one.
