For me, aside from the fun of hanging out with all your friends from the computer, the big fun of BEA is the anticipation of all the new books coming out that could be the next big, exciting thing! I've been enjoying poking around all the BEA galley guides and looking for the books that are supposed to be big at BEA, books that, if I was there, I'd definitely be angling for copies of. I've narrowed it down to 5 for today's purposes even though there are so many I'd love to have in my hands.
Future favorites? We'll see!
Every Day by David Levithan (Knopf/August) - Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl. Every morning, A wakes in a different person's body, a different person's life. There's never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere. It's all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin's girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with-day in, day out, day after day.
Any BEA books you're looking forward to?
