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
