BEA and All the Books I Never Knew I HAD to Have

So sadly I wasn’t able to attend BEA this year (or ever) so I stalked the crap out of my Twitter book loving friends so I could live vicariously through them. I had two awesome blogger friends who stalked happily along with me, Kristen @ My Friends Are Fiction and Pili @ In Love With Handmade. So while chatting and stalking came the idea to make a post of the books we discovered or became even more obsessed with getting are hands on and that is how this post was born. J

While Kris and Pili were very modest with their lists and make me feel *almost* shameful for being so gluttonous I’ve got a bit of a list going here compared to their 5 books a piece. *glares at Kris and Pili* I thought you were my people! ;)

Jackaby by William Ritter | The Walled City by Ryan Graudin | Made for You by Melissa Marr | The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O’Brien | ALittle Something Different by Sandy Hall | TheIron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare | Stitching Snow by RC Lewis | Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer | I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson | Ghost House by Alexandra Adornetto | How We Fall by Kate Brauning | Loveis the Drug by Alaya Dawn Johnson | Rooms by Lauren Oliver | Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick | Messenger of Fear by Michael Grant | On a Clear Day by Walter Dean Myers | TheOnly Thing to Fear by Caroline Tung Richmond | Salt and Storm by Kendall Kulper | Anatomy of a Misfit by Andrea Portes | Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang

Quite an obsession I have with books here! I am not ashamed to say that a GOOD majority of these I immediately sent emails/checked NG/EW for ARCs of these books. I’m glad to say that some are in my possession already also!

Go check out Kris and Pili's posts also! Any of these books tickle your fancy? 


  1. Yay Jackaby! you know I went and requested all the books I fell in love with. So many great titles were at BEA this year. I totally forgot the Messenger of Fear on my list!

  2. Yes!! Jackaby!! Stitching Snow I had already requested before BEA, and was sadly rejected (Hyperion/Disney do not like me!).
    I think I need to add Messenger of Fear to my TBR list!!

  3. Of those books, I got everything I wanted (I'm not big on contemporary so those really weren't on my radar) except Made For You (since they were doing that signing on Thursday and I didn't get up there until Friday) and Salt & Storm - I totally missed out on those.

    If you don't get any of those books, if I have them, you're more than welcome to borrow any! Sharing is caring :) (I have Black Ice, Jackaby, Ghost House, Stitching Snow, The Walled City, Vault of Dreamers & The Iron Trial)

  4. I'm probably going to have to send some requests for a couple of these books too! They look so good!


I would love to hear from you! I try to always comment back :)
