Epic book haul! So jealous! :)

I think you did great! Of course, YOU had to get the Tyra Banks excerpt. I was hoping for a picture of you with her.

Caroline Starr Rose said...

You've got some good reading to do!

storyqueen said...

I am green with envy! You got some really great arcs. Which one do you think you will read first?


LM Preston said...

Oh, you got some that I didn't get a chance to get. Great treasures! I can't wait to read your reviews. I had a blast and can't wait until next year.

I'm incredibly jealous that you were able to get copies of The Fox Inheritance (I found out about it too late at BEA) and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. Weren't BEA and TAC amazing? I can't wait to go back next year and do it all again.

Staci said...

Your stacks look like a slice of heaven!!

Lenore Appelhans said...

Alison - Lovely to see you too!

Lola - I loved BUMPED too, which is why I had to buy a finished copy at Megan's signing!

Kathy - Sarah and I just happened upon the Tyra Banks signing and though what the hey. Tyra didn't do pics unfortch.

Shelley - I read Mara Dyer and Shatter Me already and I am in the middle of Sinister Scenes.

Zibilee said...

you got some amazing books there! I also just bought a copy of The Adoration of Jenna Fox, so I will be interested in hearing what you think of the sequel. Glad to have you back, Lenore!

April (BooksandWine) said...

OMG The Power Of One is literally one of my favorite books OF ALL TIME. I've probably read it at least 20 times and I hope that you love it!!

Alyce said...

Those look fantastic! I'm so excited about Crossed and can't wait until I can get my hands on a copy. :)

Nina said...

A lot of great books! I hope you had a wonderful time. ;)

The Girl from the Ghetto said...

I admire your self control very much. If I lived in Germany like you, I'm sure I would have come back with at least 50 books. I'm afraid I'm a bit of a book hoarder. I just wrote my BEA books recap and my list of books I brought back home with me is terribly long.

I'm glad you had a long visit in New York. Lucky you!

I'm happy that I ended up sitting next to you at the Wednesday author breakfast, since you were so kind to me this past winter, but sad that we didn't have a chance to speak more.

Andi said...

Wow! That's an impressive and delicious-looking pile of books. The only one I have in my hands is the Trigiani, and I'm looking forward to it.

Michelle said...

You did great! I have to say that I didn't bring home as many books this year as I did last. I'm impressed that I learned the art of restraint. :)
