As I mentioned, I picked up a lot of books at BEA. So many so that I had to make Many. Tough. Choices. about which would go where: some went with me to France, some went to my mother’s house and some were left in London for when I go back. These photos were taken the one and only time all these books will ever be together: in the NYC hotel room! So, apologies in advance for the low quality.

Let’s break this down, shall we? Links all go to goodreads and hearts denote the books I am most looking forward to!

Young Adult:

Adult Fantasy/Sci-Fi:

Middle Grade and Graphic Novels:


Misc Adult Fiction:


  • United We Spy (Gallagher Girls, #6) by Ally Carter (signed)
  • Prodigy (Legend, #2) by Marie Lu (signed)
  • Unhinged (Splintered, #2) by A.G. Howard

Well, that took an eternity and a half to put together. Out of all the books I picked up, I took only 15 back with me to read over the next month or so – let me know if you want to know which!
