#BEA11 - Day one!

As a first-time BEA-er, I didn't know what to expect.

Then I walked in, and it was just like the London Book Fair. and I was okay. I knew how to do this.

So off I went.

I met SARAH DESSEN, Ann M. Martin, Florence Henderson, and a LOT of other authors. I wandered a LOT and got books. I went to the YA buzz panel. and just WOW.

BEA was beyond awesome. It was heaven. All the books, all the publishers, all the authors... just pure heaven.

Here is just a GENERAL list of the books I got that I'm excited about:
Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor *****
Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai
Fracture by Megan Miranda
Unforgettable by Loretta Ellsworth
Ten Rules for Living with my Sister by Ann M. Martin
All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin ******
Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler, Maira Kalman
Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz
What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
Life is Not a Stage by Florence Henderson
Shut Out by Kody Keplinger
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smtih
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin***
Between Here and Now by Elizabeth Scott

Great list, right there! Y'all should put them ALL on your to-read list RIGHT NOW.

and now, I am going to BED.
