Stacking the Shelves (4): BEA/BookCon Edition

Hosted by Tynga @ Tynga's Reviews

This was my very first time attending BEA and The BookCon and I have to say that it was a success! I was only able to go Friday and Saturday because of work, but considering how exhausted I was after two days I think it worked out for the best. I got a lot of books, met a lot of wonderful bookish people while waiting in line, and met some wonderful authors (David Arnold, Jay Kristoff, Aime Kaufman, Ruta Sepetys, Morgan Matson, Raina Telgemeier, Jeff Giles, & Aimee Friendman)! 

BEA/BookCon Haul

Look at all the pretties! It was hard to get my hands on some of the bigger YA books because people got a little crazy, but I am proud of my haul. I tried not to take anything that didn't sound interesting to me.

The Ten Books I am Dying To Read the Most

1. The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis
2. Gemina by Aime Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
3. Kids of Appetite by David Arnold
4. The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
5. Replica by Lauren Oliver
6. The Reader by Traci Chee
7. The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles
8. Disruption by Jessica Shirvington
9. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
10. The Next by Stephanie Gangi


  1. Awesome haul of books. I hope you love all of your new books from BEA/Book Con.

  3. Oh that is a nice haul! I wish BEA wasn't so close to RT next year, I would like to go to both! Happy reading!

    1. I love the tote too! Super cute and fun!

  5. Great haul! Especially Gemina! I want to go to one of these things. Before this year, I didn't even know they existed!

  6. So many awesome books :) I wish we could have gone this year but it was not in the cards for us! I hope the Female of Species is amazing, I cannot wait for that one!

    1. I did miss you guys. Maybe next year! We shall see.

  7. Wow, you got a lot of books for only being able to be there the 2 days!! I'm kind of wishing I would have gotten Kids of Appetite now. I was in line for Gemina when he was doing that signing, but the more I see it around, the more I want to read it. When it comes out, I'll definitely be getting it. AND I love that Epic Reads tote!!! I wish I would have came across that while I was there as well!
