Not Just An In My Mailbox - BEA Recap Part 2 (5/30/11)

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. It is a list of any of the books you may have received in the past week from bookstores, libraries, authors/publishers, trades, etc.

Here's part 2 of my Not Quite An In My Mailbox BEA Recap! I recorded both in one go, but the video was far too long to post at once. This one's all about BEA and some of the books I was able to pick up.

Teen Author Carnival/BEA Books: 
Liesl & Po SIGNED by Lauren Oliver
The Unwanteds SIGNED by Lisa McMann
Witch Eyes SIGNED by Scott Tracey
Imaginary Girls SIGNED by Nova Ren Suma
Skyship Academy SIGNED by Nick James
After Obsession by Carrie Jones & Steven E. Weidel (SIGNED by Carrie Jones only)
The Carrier of the Mark SIGNED by Leigh Fallon
All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer SIGNED by Michelle Hodkin
The Name of the Star SIGNED by Maureen Johnson
Wonderstruck SIGNED by Brian Selznick
Crossed SIGNED by Ally Condie

You'll notice that most of the books are signed, that's because I waited in line to get them signed. A good number of the books I got at BEA are signed because I spent a good chunk of my time waiting in line at the autographing tables or in line at the booths. Time well spent!

*Big, huge, omg thanks to all the publishers, authors, organizers, and anyone who helped make BEA and the Teen Author Carnival possible. My first BEA/TAC experience was certainly a memorable one.

Sounds like you got some great books. I'm going to have to check out Shatter Me, I love books that are pretty-written. BEA sounds interesting, maybe a little too intense. The Name of the Star sounds amazing, and obviously Michelle Hodkin's book sounds awesome. Happy Reading!

Omg Nikki it seems like BEA was an amazing experience. Crazy scary but I'm sure you wouldn't change it for the world. I'm glad you had fun and got to meet super awesome people! You got some fantastic books there. I can't wait to hear what you think of them! I'm off to do some research on Shatter Me. I've never heard of this one before! =)

Sounds fun! Stressful, but fun. I keep hearing people saying there was all kinds of drama but I haven't heard what the drama was. I think if I were to go I would try to have a lighter schedule drawn up so I wouldn't feel so crazy. I don't think it's necessary to get every single free book that's out. Some peoples piles were HUGE! Your amount was much more reasonable. And getting that bag of books, now that is awesome!
