BEA Books

My BEA books made it to CA on Monday and I arrived shortly behind them on Tuesday. Now that I’m home, I have them all unpacked and organized and get to fawn over them again. I can’t wait to read and review all of these books, and I’m incredibly thankful to all of their publishers for offering them for promotion. If there are any books here you want to learn more about, Goodreads links are provided. I’d love to hear which books you are most enthusiastic about reading!

Without further ado, here are the books I received at BEA:

    • Thanks for keeping things clean; I am trying to keep the books drool-free. It’s hard sometimes, though.

  • The only ones i’ve read are Shiver, Strings Attached, and Beauty Queens. i enjoyed Shiver more than i thought i would and happily picked up Linger at the library and now am waiting for Forever to be released, don’t think they’ll be books i’ll ever own but i had fun reading them. Strings Attached was good, i read What I Saw and How I Lied after reading this and they run in a similar vein but with completely different stories. i can’t say enough about Beauty Queens, i am ready to have Libba Bray’s babies after reading it. i don’t think i’ve EVER laughed out loud so much while reading a book. It was amazing.

    The books i’m jealous of and drooling over: Perfect and All These Things I’ve Done. There are others i want to read but those are the two i might maim someone for, in a completely loving way of course.

    • I’m prepared to laugh my ass off reading Beauty Queens.

      I haven’t read any Ellen Hopkins before, so am curious about Perfect. I loved Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac and the premise of All These Things I’ve Done is fantastic, so I’m really excited about that one, too.

      • Seriously, Beauty Queens is one of those books that you might not want to read in a public place you could get kicked out of.

        Can’t believe you haven’t read any Ellen Hopkins before. She’s awesome, both as a writer and as a person. Can’t wait to see what you think. If you like it you need to read Impulse since they are companion books and Impulse is my favorite of hers- one of the most poignant books i’ve ever read.

        • This is a good tip. Note to self: Read in private as cackling may be found obnoxious in public places.

          I don’t tend to read a whole lot of novels in verse. I’m not at all opposed to them, just tend to not pick them up that often. That’s pretty high praise, though, so hopefully I’ll enjoy it!

  • Oh and The Future of Us, which apparently i was blind to seeing the first time.

    • Seriously…Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler….together. I’m pretty sure this is going to be fantastic!

  • Oh, GIRL. There is all kinds of book goodness going on in this post! I’ve already read Legend thanks to Lindsi (BSAOT) and really enjoyed it.

    The others I’m curious to hear your opinion about and I’m interested in —

    1) What Happened to Goodbye
    2) Stupid Fast
    3) Shatter Me
    4) Future of Us
    5) Scorpio Races
    6) Winter Town
    7) How to Save a Life
    8) Why We Broke Up
    5) WARM BODIES — OMG — went to purchase the book and saw it was $20-something at the store and I was like…hermmm…I may need to wait on that one. That’s like 3 Panera salads right there.

    We are book twinkies. Seriously.
