Most Anticipated BEA Books Part 1

Design credit: Sarah at Puss Reboots

Since I'm most certainly not an authority on the future of blogging (as I barely have a past with A Room with Books) I thought I'd do the most anticipated from BEA post that everyone else did on ABEA day #2 since I didn't get the chance.

Okay, I started going through the BEA catalogue on Edelweiss but after about 2 hours and 20 tabs on Chrome I decided that probably wasn't the best idea. So, I'll give you my Most Anticipated From BEA in a slightly more condensed and possibly incomplete list :P
...Is what I said before I put all the books into a draft in Blogger and discovered it wasn't nearly as short as I'd thought. So, since you guys don't have the patience to read mile long posts (don't try to fool me, I don't have the patience either :P) I decided to break it up a little. Today I'll do my most anticipated (still in the incomplete form) debuts/non-series books.
(All the titles link to Goodreads so you can read the real summaries :])

Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger
Publish Date: October 2, 2012
This looks like one seriously awesome middle grade and you guys know how much I love me some MG!
Ten by Gretchen McNeil
Publish Date: September 18, 2012
I still haven't read Possess, but I love spooky stories nonetheless and this sounds like a truly spooky story. Just in time for October, too :]
Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill
Publish Date: November 13, 2012
Besides the gorgeous cover (but really, it is gorgeous, isn't it?) this sounds like one seriously awesome contemp. I mean, we have the guy that was never meant to be AND London.

Behind the Bookcase by Mark Steensland and Kelly Murphy
Publish Date: October 9, 2012
First of all, it's middle grade. That's an awesome beginning, sure. BUT there's a secret world behind a bookcase. Can it possibly get better than that?!

The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver
Publish Date: October 2, 2012
I'm fairly certain this needs no more explanation that Lauren Oliver + middle grade.

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
Publish Date: December 18, 2012
I'm probably the only person who hasn't read Brightly Woven, but "secret government 'rehabilitation camp'" piques my interest anyway.

Erasing Time by C.J. Hill
Publish Date: August 28, 2012
I loooooooove futuristic books and 400 years later is a lot of future to deal with. Especially if you're sent there from the past. 

Origin by Jessica Khoury
Publish Date: September 4, 2012
Secret laboratories are my jam.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Publish Date: September 4, 2012
Uhm, hello, people, it's Maggie Stiefvater.


  1. Looks like you've got a lot of reading in your future. The Spindlers looks especially interesting as I'm trying to line up some summer reading for my nieces and nephew. The cover makes me want to read it and I'm way beyond middle grades. :)

    Thanks for the great post.

  2. Did you redesign the blog? Looks great!
    Thanks for the recommendations. I started going through the catalogs on Edelweiss, but I agree, it was crazy!


I adore all the comments you write. They totally make my day :]
