Added to the Bookshelf – 6/9/12 (Special #BEA Edition)

Posted June 10, 2012 by Melissa in Added to the Bookshelf, Showcase Sunday | 44 Comments

Sharing the books & bookish goodies that I’ve bought, borrowed, won, or been gifted and have added to my bookshelves over the past week!
(Inspired by Mailbox Monday, IMM, and the like)

OK, so I am going to apologize in advance as this post is going to be long.  I was at BEA this week (my first time) and picked up a ton of great books. I can’t thank all of the wonderful Publishers and Authors enough for the opportunity to preview these titles. I also picked up a few at a yard sale and won a few this week in addition to one review book. Therefore, pictures and no summaries..only links to Goodreads this week… 

 So here we go!

  1. *faints* Holy Crap Darling..i cannot wait for BEA next year. I am waiting for my signed copy of Shadow of Night, but i did snag an e-arc to hold me over..LOL Thanks for being a part of the Sunday Post and I hope you had an awesome time!

  2. Wow lots of awesome books. I’m jealous but glad I don’t live near the event because I probably would never leave. Looks like you’ll be busy reading for awhile.

  3. Awesome haul! You got a ton of stuff from BEA and I’m super jealous of all those ARCs you have! I hope you enjoy! I’m really, really, really jealous of Darker Still because it looks extremely good!

    Check out my Stacking the Shelves!

  4. Such a great STS post!! So awesome that you were able to attend bea, and got your books signed!! Love the swag and the win from Penguin is great. Have a great week, enjoy all your goodies!!

  5. It was a great BEA Week. I loved BEA, but am glad that it’s now over. Me and you got some very similar books, but I see that we also got different books as well.


  6. Oh! Look at all those pretty, pretty books. I don’t even know where to start…I hope you love everything! 🙂 Maybe one day I’ll get to go to BEA, I hope. 😉

  7. Thanks for stopping by. Wasn’t BEA so much fun? My favorite part was just being able to talk about books for four days straight.
    And I forgot to include swag in my post. The tote bags could be a whole post on their own 🙂

    The book that eluded me: Venom by Fiona Paul. But that’s okay…

  8. Nice load this week! Beta looks pretty awesome and I can’t wait to read Ashes! I hope you enjoy everything and thanks for stopping by my IMM!

  9. Looks like you had a hugely successful BEA Melissa! I had so hoped I would be able to pick up The Twelve for a friend, but it was madness and I wasn’t able to get a copy. Can’t wait to see what you think of it! I’m super excited for Beta and The Darkest Minds too, those are on the top of my must-read list:)

  10. Whoa looks like you had an amazing time at BEA 😀 I can’t wait to read The Twelve – can’t believe it’s nearly here after waiting so long!


  11. Bea

    Holy Cow! What a week you had! I am so jealous: not only did you get to BEA but you got a paper ARC of Ashen Winter! I have an e-ARC but even so, I’m sooo jealous. Did you read Ashfall? It was so good.

    m looking forward to your BEA recap post.

  12. Yay for Harry Potter books and BEA! Lots of great titles here! So funny that we probably walked by each other a few times, lol! Great swag too – I was too overwhelmed with people to even notice how much swag was laying around, oops!
    Great stuffs, enjoy them all 🙂

  13. Holy crow!! Lucky you! “The Passage” was one of my favorite books of the past few years, I hope you love it. CANNOT WAIT to read the next in line! And I have not yet read “A Discovery of Witches,” so I just snagged it via the Kindle Daily Deal for today, yay! Nice to see the second one is almost out too.

  14. Man we got so many of the same books it’s insane, we were probably in line together and I didn’t know it. (darn) The farm looks amazing right?? I can’t wait to dive into so many of the books, I missed Harkness’s signing but I did get the book. I’m glad you had fun as well, it was my first time and I had a freaking blast!!!
    Happy Reading
