Top Ten Books I Hope To Get At BEA 2014!

Top Ten Tuesday, as  always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish

This week’s topic: Top Ten Tuesday FREEBIE!

This week I chose, following in tradition with the top ten books I wanted from BEA 2013, to go with top ten books I hope to bring home with me from BEA 2014!

BEFORE WE BEGIN: If you are noticing a HUGE lack of BIG  titles from Harper it’s because of THIS EPIC MAIL WEEK or else things like The Jewel or Falling Into Place would be on my list. So if you are interested in what Fall 2014 Harper books I’d be hunting down it would be some of those. Also, two of my big ones Let’s Get Lost & Lies We Tell Ourselves I received at ALA from Harlequin. So check those out!

As you may know, I’m going to be attending the Book Expo of America for year #4! These are the goodies I hope I bring back with me!


1. I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson: If I could only take ONE book home from BEA it would be this one! Hands down. The Sky is Everywhere is one of my all time favorite books and I have been waiting YEARS for a new one from her. You shall see me at this line as early as I can get there!

2. Rooms by Lauren Oliver: I love me some Lauren Oliver — her wonderful self and her books! I cannot wait to get her first published adult novel!!

3. Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer: I have been wanting to read her adult fiction novels and will eventually but I definitely want to get my hands on this one! Boarding school!

4. Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future by AS King: I loved AS King’s Please Ignore Vera Dietz so I cannot wait for this one! Also, she’s a lovely person!

5. Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld: This sounds awesome. I think all book nerds and writerly people need this one!

6. Jackaby by William Ritter: This one sounds really interesting. I don’t watch either of this but it says it’s like Dr. Who meets Sherlock. (I know, I know..I plan to rectify that soon).

7. Rain by Virginia Burgin: Sounds creepy and strange. The rain is infected and can kill you. I don’t even know. I want it.

8. Famous In Love by Rebecca Serle: I really want this because I enjoyed Rebecca’s novel The Edge of Falling + I look stories about teen stars!

9. Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas: I just finished Throne of Glass over the weekend and I MUST HAVE THIS as I have Crown of Midnight sitting right here and I hear that it will kill me. So yeah, I’m already anticipating the need for this.

10. The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton: This is an adult novel and it sounds FASCINATING.



So tell me…if you are going to BEA..what are some books you want? If you are not, which ones would you hope to snag? And did you discover any new books through my list?? Or think of any that ARE NOT on my list that I should be watching out for??

About Jamie

Jamie is a 30 year old married lady who is in denial that she’s actually that old. When she’s not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, listening to music with oversized headphones and having adventures with her husband and dog.


  1. Fun! Good luck! =)

  2. I really want to get Lauren Oliver’s Rooms as well. I feel like I need to get my grabby hands out.

  3. OBVIOUSLY HEIR OF FIRE! BELZHAR looks good, and I like the sound of JACKABY and looove the cover. Have fun at BEA, lucky!

  4. Hope to cross paths with you at BEA! We have some overlapping top tens, so perhaps I’ll see you in line!

  5. Good luck getting in early.
    I love the sound of BEA, I only wish Australia had something of similar standards for its book bloggers…. one day we might get something similar.

  6. Have a great time at BEA, Jamie. I would definitely want to get my hands on a copy of I’ll Give You The Sun.

  7. Heir of Glass is on my must have list too
    Famous is Love was really good!

  8. Wishing you luck! I hope you get them all!

  9. I’ll Give You the Sun! So excited for this book!!! Have the best time Jamie.. I know you will! 🙂

  10. YES. I own an ebook and hardcover of The Sky is Everywhere so the new Jandy would be my #1 as well. I also want Jen Armentrout’s The Return, anything new by Maggie Stiefvater (she’s supposed to have some Sinner, which I’d love, but I’d hurt someone for Blue Lily, Lily Blue), and I heard there might be some of Rainbow’s Landline. I’d almost go just for those 4 things.

  11. Hope you get them all. The Miniaturist sounds great. Adding that to me TBR!

  12. Rooms, Jackaby, Heir if Fire, and The Miniaturist are on my list too! So many amazing books if only I could clone myself and get them all! Hope to meet you in a few days, maybe in line for these books!

  13. belzhar!! totally
    have fun for me please!!!!!

  14. This was a great list!
    I won’t be in New York all week for BEA but I will be at BookCon (formerly power reader day) on Saturday! I can’t WAIT!
    You said that this is your 4th year, so did you always stay for Power Reader Day in the past? I know of a lot of bloggers and booktubers that went to that and they came back with lots of ARCs and things.
    I’m sad though because I’m pretty sure most of the ARCS will be given out during the week at BEA and not as much on Saturday. I NEED to get my hands on Heir of Fire! I wish now that I could have been able to go all week so I could get a copy! Hopefully next year!
    There’s a chance I guess there may be some ARCS left for it on Saturday, but I doubt it…

  15. Yes, the new Jandy Nelson would be great. I’d look for Heir of Fire and The Mortal Heart as well as the new Deborah Harkness novel. Have fun!

  16. I will be seeing you in line for MANY of these!!! XD Jackaby, I’ll Give You the Sun, Heir of Fire, Belzhar, Afterworlds, and ROOOOOOOOOOMS (omg I’m so excited for that one, lol). SOOOOO excited to meet you, Jamie!

  17. So many books on this list that I want. I wish I was going to BEA simply because I want to meet Sarah J. Maas and have a chance to get Heir of Fire! And Scott Westerfeld! Good luck, I hope you get all the books on your list and of course have fun! 😀

  18. That’s so funny! We chose the same topic this week 🙂 I’m leaving tomorrow and I can’t wait!

  19. Hope you’re able to get Heir of Fire!! That cover is awesome!

  20. HEIR OF FIRE! Hehe.

    I hope you get all the books you want Jamie 😀

  21. Oh, I’ll definitely be scouting out Scott Westerfeld’s new book, too! And I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about this JACKABY book – I guess I’ll have to keep my eyes open. Maybe I’ll see you on the Exhibit Hall floor? *grin* Happy BEA 2014!

  22. Great topic! I really, really, really, really wish I could go BEA, but sadly I am all the way in London. All of the books you’ve mentioned are ones that I am desperate to get my hands on but I especially want Rooms. Here’s my post, I decided to go with my favourite mind-blowing book endings.
