  1. Does this beat BEA in terms of books? You got a lot of great ones! 🙂

    • I am not sure it beats it, but it is pretty equal I would think. The only big difference I noticed was that ALA was a lot calmer, so I did not feel rushed and I was not constantly running into people. The more relaxed environment was nice 🙂

  2. Wow! What a bonanza of books!

    I see the Bonnie Hearns Hill book and I’m going “Yay!” I have “The Intern.” Plus, she’s one of our Central Valley authors who participates in our joint book signings.

  3. That is just an amazing luscious beautiful list of books…I am so new at blogging that I had no clue what BEA was and ALA…I had an invitation to ALA…it is barely an hour and a half away from me but I had no idea what it was…am I allowed to yearn for next year…should I go to both?

    • I think if you can make the trip, you should GO!! They are crazy busy, but they are so much fun. You get to meet so many great people and you get great books! And if you do decide to go, I will help you out if you need it when there, because things can get a bit overwhelming. But always have great people there helping me, so I have so much fun!

  4. So jealous of Nevermore and Infinite Days!!!

    Also still jealous of Enchanted Ivy. Sad that they only had one left. 😦 But I am glad you got it!!

    • Thanks, I am really excited about it. I am mailing it to Angela to read after I do, but do you want it after her? You can borrow it if you like?

      • That’d be awesome if it’s alright with you. Because after all the other books I got, I probably shouldn’t ask for my own copy as I have no room for the ones I already have! Borrowing is better, lol.

      • lol, I understand. When I get it back from Angela I will let you know 🙂

  5. Wow! You made out like a bandit. Now you just have to find time to read them all. 😉
