If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I’ve been sick this week with strep throat. Yuck.
Luckily, one of my wonderful blogger friends stepped up and offered to write a guest post for me so you would continue to be entertained, even when I’m out sick! 🙂
Kai from Fiction State of Mind had the chance to attend ALA Midwinter last weekend, and she’s going to share some of the exciting new reads she discovered!
Last weekend, I attended ALA Midwinter in San Diego. Primarily a convention for librarians, ALA offers exhibit-only passes that present an amazing opportunity to meet with authors, publishers and editors.
And, of course, to get new books!
I had never attended this event before and was overwhelmed by the generosity of the different publishers.
Here are a few of the ARCs I picked up whose covers really stood out to me:
CORSETS & CLOCKWORK
Combining Steampunk sensibilities with romance is the goal of this anthology featuring authors: Ann Aguirre, Caitlin Kittredge, Lesley Livingston, Dia Reeves and many others.
WHERE SHE WENT
Gayle Forman’s sequel to the wonderful If I Stay. Something about this model conveys a sense of adventure and life to me; I’m looking forward to reading it.
I love the design of this book. I have to hurry up and read White Cat so I can get to this one.
I’m so behind on Kelly Armstrong’s Women of the Underworld series, so I was glad to see The Gathering was the start of a new series. Looks interesting, Gorgeous Cover!
Another gorgeous cover for the second book in Andrea Cremer’s Nightshade series. Looking forward to reading book 1 and 2 back-to-back.
I picked this up solely by the cover and as I was walking past a really nice lady stopped me to tell me how good the book was! An interesting Fantasy Romance.
This cover totally drew me in. When I read the back cover I was totally sold. A young girl fights to remove a terrible curse from to enigmatic brothers. Another fantasy epic.
This is just a fraction of the wonderful books I acquired over the weekend.
I’ll be posting lots more info and ALA swap contests all this week!
Thanks, Kai! Can I just say how totally jealous I am of all the wonderful books you got?
