Johnston | Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson | Dreamland by Robert L. Anderson | A Book of Spirits and Thieves by Morgan Rhodes | Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes | This Monstrous Thing by Mackenzie Lee | The Lies About Truth by Courtney C.

Are you excited for any of these books? 


  1. Sui generis says:

    My must haves include Legacy of Kings, A Thousand Nights, Ink and Bone, Ice Like Fire and The Shrunken Head!

  2. Lizzie says:

    So many great books, I wish I lived in America so I could go to BEA! Definitely cannot wait to get my hands on Illuminae, Six of Crows and Frozen Tides.

  3. Rhoda K says:

    Thanks for this giveaway. If I were to go (I live in Scotland, so I’m not going) the first things I’d seek out would be Six of Crows and A Thousand Nights.

  4. Carl says:

    I’d want to get some of the same books as you do, particularly Never, Always, Sometimes, and More Happy than Not. Thanks for the chance to win a pre-order.

  5. Kayla @ The Thousand Lives says:

    I would do unspeakable things for an ARC of Truthwitch O_O Okay maybe not really but I NEED IT. Other than that, I’d be itching to grab Six of Crows and Soundless! I’m so happy to already have Illuminae though – that line is going to be crazy I’m sure! I really hope you can get everything you’re aiming for 😀

  6. Mithila says:

    uugh. there are so many–and some that I don’t even know will be there!
    My must haves are: ink & bone, slasher boys and monster girls, frozen tides, a book of spirits and thieves, illuminae (i have an e-arc but its hard to read), truthwitch, passenger, and six of crows.

    • Crystal says:

      AH I want Slasher Boys and Monster Girls also, but wasn’t sure if it would be there so I didn’t list it!

  7. Sophie says:

    If I was at BEA, I would be desperate to get my hands on Truthwitch, Ice Like Fire, Walk on Earth a Stranger, A Thousand Nights, & Soundless. I’ve already managed to get an eARC of The Legacy of Kings off NetGalley :). Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Crystal says:

      Sad you can’t go either 🙁 We can all just watch the feeds and live vicariously through everyone else together ;P

  8. Katie says:

    I would definitely have to pick up SIX OF CROWS (Bardugo + that summary + that cover = DROOLING) and WALK ON EARTH A STRANGER (there needs to be more YA Westerns in existence).

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. Jennifer Bui says:

    If I were to go to BEA I would want to get my hands on Illuminae, and maybe Mirrored! Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Ashley says:

    God, there are so many good books coming out this year! I’m not sure what all will be at BEA, but I’m really looking forward to Invasion of the Tearling, Heart of Betrayal, Walk on Earth a Stranger, Carry On, and (of course) Queen of Shadows.

  11. miki says:

    if i were going ( being european that stays a dreams) and if it was available i would jump on the new title in the others series by anne bishop , or teh new fangborn one by dana cameron….from your list thruthwitch would be in my priority pile)


    • Crystal says:

      Oooohhhh is Black Widow going to be there?? I wasn’t sure so I didn’t add it! And I hope you get them all!!!

  12. Maraia says:

    So many great books! Maybe it’s good I’m not going, because then CHOICES would have to happen. I think I’m most excited for Six of Crows and Truthwitch, though. 🙂

  13. Cali W. says:

    If I was going I would want Six of Crows for sure!!! I love Leigh Bardugo books. 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway. 🙂

  14. Stefani @ Caught Read Handed says:

    I honestly would stand in line all day to get an ARC of Dumplin! I CANNOT wait to read that one! I’d also try to snag The Rest of Us Just Live Here and A Thousand Nights because they both sound BRILLIANT. Thank you so much for the giveaway!

  15. Alex U. says:

    If I were going to BEA, my must haves would be Six of Crows, Ink & Bone and Dreamstrider.
    Thank you for the giveaway!

  16. Carol says:

    I wish I was going, there are so many books I’m looking forward to, especially Patrick Ness’ last one! 🙁

  17. Carina Olsen says:

    Yaaay 😀 Awesome post gorgeous. <3 So many books. Ugh. I'm jealous, though, lol. I want to go to BEA so badly 🙁 Must have is Six of Crows. <3 And Firewalker. And Walk on Earth a Stranger 😀 Thank you for sharing sweetie. <3 And for this amazing giveaway 🙂 Fingers crossed. <3

  18. Angel says:

    If I were in BEA I would like to grab A Thousand Nights because I presented A Thousand and One Nights in our Lit class. It would be interesting to read how it was retold! 😀

  19. Zi K. says:

    I honestly didn’t even know they made HC ARCs! Some very pretty covers there. My picks would be Lies About Truth, Illuminae, and Truthwitch, but they all look great!

  20. Angelica says:

    What an awesome giveaway, it’s fantastic for people like myself who can’t make it because I’m in a different continent 🙁

    The two MUST have pre-orders would be Richelle Mead’s Soundless and I read a review of Ink & Bone by Rachel Caine which also sounded fantastic.

  21. Irene says:

    I don’t know if it’s available, but The Thing About Jellyfish would be my choice. I just read a sneek peak and it was incredibly good! That would be the book I’d grab from BEA

  22. Danielle says:

    I was really bummed to have missed out on Truthwitch, Six of Crows, Soundless, and Ice Like Fire 🙁 But I did get some other fun things!

  23. Kristia says:

    I’d get the Soundless by Richelle Mead. But alas I live abroad and I can’t go to BEA :/ Thank you for providing us the chance to win an amazing book 🙂

  24. JJ says:

    I think I’d want Ink and Bone if I could go to BEA as I read a really great review of that one and it sounded awesome.

  25. _Sandra_ says:

    My must haves would’ve definitely be Six of Crows, Passenger, Illuminae, Soundless and Black Widow.
    Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  26. Ola says:

    I’d go for Six of Crows, Ice Like Fire or The Rest of Us Just Live Here
    (or y’know all of them because they all seem equally amazing)

  27. Ola says:

    I’d go for Six of Crows, Ice Like Fire or The Rest of Us Just Live Here
    (or y’know all of them because they all seem equally amazing)
    Thanks for the opportunity 🙂 x

  28. MichelleRae6 says:

    I wish I could’ve gone to BEA this year. I think I’ll make it my goal for next year as a graduation from college gift to myself

  29. Merel (Lucy) says:

    Oh I would have no idea what I really wanted at BEA. I think I would be overwhelmed by the whole experience and leave with as many books possible. But the one book I would definitely try to get is Illuminae by Aime Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I have no idea what it’s about but OMG it’s so intriguing!

  30. JM Tuazon says:

    Stoked to join this wonderful Giveaway!! If I were to go to BEA which is in fact somewhat impossible since I live in the Philippines, I would gladly have all those books above! A book is never enough! 🙂

  31. Lynette says:

    Ah I could not go to BEA this year because I just had my daughter and well, baby needed fed! But I wish that I could have gotten my hands on Truthwitch, Six of Crows, and Legacy of Kings.

  32. Emma A says:

    If I did go to BEA, I would have wanted to get Soundless, Six of Crows, Walk on Earth a Stranger, and Ice Like Fire. Thank you!

  33. Hannah says:

    I am dying to read ‘Walk on Earth a Stranger’, ‘Six of Crows’, and ‘Legacy of Kings’. Rae Carson and Leigh Bardugo have long made it onto my automatically-read-anything-by-them list.
