This is the big one dolls, because in this edition I'll be featuring all my BEA'13 goodies!! I already did up a BEA Event Recap Post, (click if you missed it and feel like checking it out), so this post is all about the books! Because it would take forever to link up to every single book I got, I decided to just share pictures of my individual-day hauls, feature some of the highlights for me & a few autographs because I know some of you wanted to see those too :) So let's get to it:
Highlights include: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson, Born of Illusion by Teri Brown, treats by Julie Kagawa (The Immortal Rules, The Eternity Cure, The Iron Daughter & The Iron Queen), an Heir Chronicles books by Cinda Williams Chima, The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, Storm Watcher by Maria V. Snyder, The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black & These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner. Day 1 was pretty epic overall!
~ Day 2 Haul ~
Highlights include: The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson, Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas, The School for Good & Evil by Soman Chainani, Curtsies & Conspiracies by Gail Carriger, Vicious by Victoria Schwab, The Lord of Opium by Nancy Farmer and Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead. Day 2 had a lot of signings, so more time spent in line and less time running around to catch book-drops.
Highlights Include: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, The Beautiful & the Cursed by Page Morgan, The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas, Some Quiet Place by Kelsey Sutton, False Sight by Dan Krokos, Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris & Vicious Deep by Zoraida Córdova. I expected Day 3 to be more quiet than the previous 2, but I got really lucky with signings & being at the right place at the right time so I got some unexpected but coveted goodies!

As for the autographs - I know some of you were curious, so here are a few shots of the more memorable ones (ps- it was really hard to limit myself here, authors are totally like rockstars to me:
From left to right: Maria V. Snyder, Kelsey Sutton (Some Quiet Place), V.E. Schwab & Dan Krokos
From left to right: Brandon Sanderson, Julie Kagawa, Teri Brown (Born of Illusion) & Sanderson (again!)
I'd been on a book buying ban for months prior to BEA so I'm extremely happy to have some new goodies to swoon over. I'll probably reinstate my ban for a few weeks now (till the wallet recovers from NYC) but I have some galleys already set for next week! Don't forget to link me up to your haul below so I can return the visit & see what everyone else got! ♥
