Now I may have miss-categorized some of the books in Adult Galleys that may be Teen, but I did the best I could considering the volume.  This should about do it.


  1. Squeee! You managed to bring home so many awesome books! Can't wait to hear what you thought of The Returned, as that one caught my eye and sounds awesome. Enjoy all of your new goodies! So jealous! ;)

    1. I wasn't actually planning to read The Returned. I figured someone would want it. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
      I've sorted through about half the books and I just can't so anymore tonight.

  2. Your BEA haul is fantastic! Enjoy all your books :)

    Sugar & Snark's STS

    1. I will tell you all these books are not for me. I plan to be gifting quite a bit. Perhaps I am keeping more than I originally thought I was going to.
      The TBR pile just keeps growing.

  3. Wow, that's some selection - I wouldn't know where to begin.

    1. Neither do I. I'm trying to sort through them all, but I am giving it up for a lost cause this evening. Perhaps tomorrow I'll try to tackle it again.

  4. Wow! I'm so jealous of ALL of this!

    I really wanted to go to BEA, but it wasn't in the cards this year. I will be going to the ALA convention, but it won't be the same!

    How do you even know where to start? lol!

    1. This year was just chock full of tons of great sounding books. That is one of the best things about BEA. I really like going through the schedule and looking up the books being offered. I have found some great new authors that way. Like last year, I found Jennifer L Armentrout. I had never read her before then.

  5. Shew, that is definitely a lot. I've read Inescapable by Amy A. Bartol and loved it. I have Anew by Chelsea Fine, but I haven't read it yet.

    1. I starting reading a sample of Inescapable and was drawn in from the very beginning. Although, now I don't remember because that was prior to the BEA madness. And I killed my Kindle, so I can't actually pick it back up again until next week.
      I picked up Anew for $.99, without reading a sample. It was getting late in the day and I still hadn't read a sample, s I just bought it figuring it's only a buck.
      Thanks for stopping by!
