Book Haul: BEA

Last Friday I had the amazing opportunity to attend the Book Expo of America here in New York City. Most of the major book publishers attend and attempt to sell their books to interested chains, bookstores, librarians and other industry professionals. This year was the first time they allowed non-professionals into the Expo and it was a bit chaotic. We were allowed in an hour after the event opened on its final day. The line was incredibly long and full of “Power Readers” who wanted to experience the event for themselves. As soon as the doors opened to us, many rushed around trying to gather as many ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies) as they could. Though I was as excited as everyone else for free books, I felt that some of the “Power Readers” were rude to the publishers and their representatives. Rather than interacting many chose to reach behind the counters or interrupt  sales conversations just for a free book. How rude!

All of that is a long-winded introduction to my list of books I received in the last week:

The Diviners by Libba Bray
On Sale: September 17, 2012

I won’t lie. Libba Bray is one of my all-time favorite authors. I devoured her 
A Great and Terrible Beauty  series — it even played a huge part
in my senior prom! Needless to say, I’m thrilled to have an ARC
for this one!

The End of Men: And the Rise of Women by Hanna Rosin
On Sale: September 11, 2012

The Last Policeman by Ben Winters
On Sale: July 10, 2012

Bared to You by Sylvia Day
One Sale Now

This one seems a lot like the much hyped Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy.
I met the author and got an autographed copy!

Eternally Yours by Cate Tiernan
On Sale: November 6, 2012

The Lost Prince by Selden Edwards
On Sale: August 16, 2012
