I Am Literally Drowning In Books: BEA Book Haul

Last week while I was in Chicago for BEA, I got a lot of books. And I mean a lot of books. I think I got around 70. SEVENTY. If I die, just know it was by my TBR pile falling over on top of me.

This book haul will be split in 2 different parts. First part has the books I bought (I know, on top of all the free ones I still bought books. Anything else new?) and the Young Adult books I got during BEA/BookCon, which you can see in my book haul video below:

So you’ve decided to stay! Or join! Nice. The rest of this post will feature all the other books I got last week because, yes, there’s more.

    I think you should start be reading either The Scorpio Races or The Secret Keepers, because I know that Maggie Steifvater writes some amazing books, so that one would definitely be interesting to read. While the other one just sounds so mysterious and secretive which makes me wanna know what it´s about and what you thought of it.

    Haha, I love that nonfiction title “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck”! I still haven’t read any Steifvater books, but it is my goal to start The Raven Cycle this summer. Hopefully it’ll live up to the hype for me! From your BEA haul… I also loved You Know Me Well! I’m also very excited for Of Fire and Stars, so I hope you enjoy that!

    PS. @tamaraniac on Twitter referred me to you ;).

    Jess @ POB!
