Bekka here!  Hooooly shit, I hope you are comfortable because you are in for a long ass post.  I am exhausted.  We all just got back from BEA a few days ago, and I’m still not right from the trip.  If you’re interested, my short, little recap was posted earlier this week.  The gist:  I HAD A BLAST.  A huge part of the awesome factor was the people, which I went into during the recap.  The other awesome part? Books!  First I’ll show you some ebooks I got outside of BEA from some auto-approvals on NG and EW, and then I’ll get into my BEA haul!

OH BOY, OH BOY. BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS. Have I got the epic haul this week! I thought about filming a vlog, but honestly guys, who wants to see me talk about 50ish books for a half hour or more? Exactly how many people would watch THAT all the way through? The answer is 0. So I am just going to do an extensive haul  with photos and links so y’all can add them to your wishlists! Because there are some here I NEVER heard of before BEA until they were in my hands.

SO let’s get started!

  1. Ladies it looks you had SUCH AN AWESOME BEA! I’m not going to list all the books that look interesting or I’ll exceed the comment characters (apparently, this is possible, only happened to me once). But I’m going to go and check a whole stack of them out.

    Enjoy and have fun choosing what to read next 😉

  2. Glad you enjoyed BEA! I read Perfect Lies this week, it’s a great sequel. Presuming it’s the book I think it is! I’m also reading Since You’ve Been Gone – read that one as soon as you can, it’s so good. I hope you enjoy all your books, you’re going to have a great summer!

    • Haha, oh I do feel overwhelmed, believe me. But it’s also the GOOD kind of overwhelmed. Also, I have never been to RT but there is no conference in the world that could keep me from going to BEA. It is a booklover’s paradise. Plus, it has all my friends. 🙂

    That is one gigantic haul! The three of you have got some great books, most of which I definitely want to read so I’ll be looking out for your reviews of them all 🙂 I just got Nihal of the Land of the Wind by Licia Troisi from Netgalley and do I spy the new Jane Yolen book there too? Oh, so much great reading!!!
