BEA Books Review Recaps

In addition to the books I've just recently read (see this weeks earlier posts, The Name of the Star, and Bitterblue) there are a handful of books I've reviewed in the past year that are also going to be at the BEA.  So in case you're on the fence about something, or you missed my earlier reviews I thought I'd have a quick recap of some of my faves.

The Immortal Rules, by Julie Kagawa
A fantastic new spin on Vampires and post apocalyptic stories, Julie has set the stage for a gripping new series and a to-die-for new kick ass heroine.  I reviewed this fab book back in March, and could hardly contain my gushyness. I will totally be fan girling on Julie both at the Book Blogging Conference and her autographing sessions! In booth signing Tuesday June 5th, 11:00am-11:45 booth 3739, and Booth 26 (autographing area) Wednesday June 6th 4-5pm.

The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green
YOU WILL FEEL ALL OF THE THINGS, and you will cry.  But you will also laugh, and it will be great, I promise you.  I reviewed The Fault in Our Stars back in January and could not say enough good things about it.  My copy was one of the pre-signed ones, so I won't camp out for tickets to Johns autographing session this week.  However, I will troll by to get a look at this fantastically heart-breaking author. Wednesday June 6th, booth 26 (autographing area) 10:30-11:30.

Legend, by Marie Lu
A BEA book from last year which had tremendous buzz, Legend's sequel, Prodigy is going to be at the BEA this year.  I reviewed Legend back in January, it was really the first of several dystopians to get me out of my dystopian blahs from this past fall. Marie Lu will be signing in booth Wednesday June 6th from 12:30-1:30.

Croak, by Gina Damico
Super fun debut Croak, was part of my Giving me the Creeps October posts, super in advance of it's March 20th release date.  Damico will be at BEA this year signing part two of her series, Scorch, which I can hardly wait to get my hands on!  Also, I really want to meet the wacky and zany Damico, who will live in memory for me, as being the woman who tweeted a photo of a fairy penis to Meggie Steifvater.  For real.  From a penis museum. LOVE IT.  Gina will be signing Scorch and Croak in booth 20 (autographing area) on Wednesday June 6th from 3-4pm.

Not going to be BEA'ing it up? The great news is these books are ALL in stores now.  So go ahead and treat yourself to a "I'm not going to BEA, I deserve a book" read.
