It’s almost here! I could have written this post about any aspect about BEA, but I think what’s on most of you readers’ minds is what books will be available there. I’ve been keeping an eye on signing schedules and galley drops, and these books are at the TOP of the list of books I hope to pick up. Of course, this is based off of what’s been announced that will be available there, so if I get to the convention center and pick up galley drop schedules with whole other books on them, my priorities might change dramatically.

heir of fire the fine art of pretending glory o'brien Stitching Snow This Shattered World The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet afterworlds lies we tell ourselves the walled city the jewel

1. Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas: I believe this is at the top of most peoples’ lists. For obvious reasons. (CHAAAAAAAAAAAAOL.)
2. The Fine Art of Pretending by Rachel Harris: FAKE DATING TROPE. HELLO. ALSO CUTE COVER. HELLO AGAIN. *desperate*
3. Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future by A.S. King: I’m an A.S. King newbie, but I’ve wanted to try her out for a while. This one sounds the most like a Debby book though – VISIONS OF THE FUTURE. TIMEY WIMEY. Most excellent.
4. Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis: SCI-FI FAIRYTALE. PRETTY COVER. WANT.
5. This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner: RUMORED TO BE AT BEA. Oh I so want that to be true. *bounces* I’m not sure it is though. I don’t know. Ahhhh.
6. The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick: PW says this will be at the S&S/Touchstone booth and my eyes have been O____________O ever since. They’ve held me in approval limbo for two months on Edelweiss *pouts*
7. Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld: A book about publishing. As someone who hopes to work in the industry, I must have this.
8. Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley: This is a buzz book, so I should be able to get it. Anyway. This book is just diversity diversity diversity, so must support.
9. The Walled City by Ryan Graudin: Also a buzz book – with a super pretty cover. But basically, anything Asian-inspired = want.
10. The Jewel by Amy Ewing: This is one I definitely want despite knowing better. Total cover want. I want it to be good too – but it’s being compared to The Selection so I dunno.

That’s it! What do you hope to pick up at BEA, or what would be your priority if you were going?

  1. I would be SO COOL if This Shattered World was at BEA! It seems like forever since I started waiting for that book. I’ve been holding back on starting Throne of Glass because I wanted atleast a few books to be out before I started (it’s been SO HARD to wait so long! :/), and I’m finally going to start as soon as Heir of Fire is out! Yay! I cant wait! 😀

    I would get The Fine Art of Pretending for the cover alone – it’s so cute! The storyline sounds pretty interesting too. I hope it lives up to it. Aaand I have The Lies We Tell Ourselves, and cant wait to start (yay!) 🙂

    Have fun at BEA! 😀

    Oh my god, I hadn’t realised there’d be a book from the LBD verse. Ahhh, I hope you get that one because I’m super interested in your opinion on it. 😀

  3. If I were going to BEA I’d totally be killing for an ARC of Heir of Fire and This Shattered World for sure!! And Stitching Snow quite probably too!!
    Hope you can grab all the books you want!!

  4. Also itching to get my hands on Heir of Fire and This Shattered World! Was bummed when I found out that TSW’s featuring a different set of characters, but I still really really want to read it. Secretly hoping for a cameo from the These Broken Stars characters 😛

  5. I can’t WAIT for Bookcon! (Unfortunately I can’t go to BEA during the week.. hopefully next year!)

    I HOPE there will be some left over ARCs on Saturday like Heir of Fire but I doubt it 🙁

    Have you been before?

  6. Heir of fire, Stitching snow and The Jewel! I would also add Mortal heart to that list 🙂 I think everyone is going for Heir of fire, haha, we all need more Chaol time 😀 And fairy tales are my favorite like you know, so I’m very excited for Stitching snow. I’ve never read The selection, but this book does sound good. And His fair assassins is one of my favorite series, so I’m dying to read Mortal heart.

  7. They gave away This Shattered World at the blogger conference yesterday, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it made an appearance throughout the rest of BEA. 😀
