BEA Jitters: My "Must" List
I decided that this year would be the year because BEA will be moving after this year. Right now it's in New York City, which is only about three hours away from me--super convenient! Unfortunately, BEA will be moving to Chicago next year, which is not so super convenient. So this is the year for me.
I honestly have jitters. We're officially less than a week out and I'm shaking. I'm so excited for so many things: meeting amazing authors, getting amazing books, and talking to amazing people. I made such lovely friends last year (shoutout to Adele @snarkywench) and I can't wait to make more connections with fellow book lovers. I even ordered myself cute little business cards to bring (see above right)!
Anyway, enough with my babbling... I wanted to share my "Must" list with you guys--the list of authors that I must see and books that I must get! I have a huge schedule filled with bizarre color coding and overscheduled time slots, so these are just a handful of my "Must's."
Virginia Boecker--The Witch Hunter
Susane Colasanti--City Love
Sara Raasch--Snow Like Ashes
Megan Shepherd--The Cage
Adi Alsaid--Never Always Sometimes
Katie McGarry--Nowhere But Here
Margaret Stohl--Black Widow: Forever Red
Carrie Ryan--Daughter of Deep Silence
I.W. Gregorio--None of the Above
Sandy Hall--Signs Point to Yes
Leigh Bardugo--Six of Crows
Jennifer L. Armentrout--Scorched
Rae Carson--Walk on Earth a Stranger
Patrick Ness--The Rest of Us Just Live Here
Sarah J. Maas
That's just scratching the surface of my list, but those are definitely my top's for each day!
Is anyone else going to BEA and/or Bookcon? If so, who and what is on your "Must" list? Share in the comments!
