And FYI, at the end of this post I will list a few books that I scored at BEA that I will be giving away, a couple of them are even signed.
One of the most interesting things I did was sit in on a panel with Ya authors Melissa Marr, Bethany Griffin, Jenny Han, Siobhan Vivian, Elizabeth Norris, and Tonya Hurley where they discussed the ongoing evolution of YA:
It was awesome going around to all the publisher booths and checking out (and grabbing) their books, here's a visual of my haul:
I also took a pics with some awesome authors: Melissa Marr, Becca Fitzpatrik, Kady Cross, Katherine Applegate & Michael Grant, and Julie Kagawa.
BEA was a blast and so tiring! But I will definitely be going back next year and now I have to figure out how to rearrange my bookcase to make all my new books fit. But that's a problem I don't mind having.
So in the spirit of sharing the wealth, here's what I have to give away. This is not a contest, I am not drawing winners, if you are interested in any of the books simply leave a comment and let me know which book you want and I will send it to you (please leave your email address as well). If you would like more than one book that's fine. I will give the books to whoever asks for them first.
