Thanks to the gals of The Broke and The Bookish for hosting this meme every week!
And of course by BEAch, I mean books that I discovered at BEA that look light and fun for reading at the beach (since I would much rather read and watch my friends’ kids play in the sand than get into the water, hehe). This is my way of starting to cover BEA while still having fun with posts that don’t make me feel overwhelmed (my suitcase is still sitting on the floor with books spilling out of it…).
Summer is For Middle Grade
I don’t know what it is, but when I think summer, I think middle grade. I read the first two Castle Glower books last summer, so it is perfect that I can start the next one this summer :D. There was a lot of awesome middle grade at BEA and I was quite happy to snag these four. Middle grade is just so fun and light that it is easy to read around distractions like small children and seagulls ;-).
Water, Water, Everywhere
Of course, if I’m going to be reading on the beach, I should really be reading books with water in them! These two both seem to have water magic in them and I’m so happy to have discovered them at BEA!
Oo la la…
In addition to middle grade, when I think of summer, I think of hot reads. I’m strange, I know! I’m excited for both of these new series though, since they are from authors’ whose writing I love!
Just Give Me The Awesome
Finally, there are a lot of books from BEA that call to me this summer just because they promise to be so awesome! I’ve heard awesome things about Traitor’s Blade and The Darkest Part of the Forest was the top of my BEA must-gets, score!
Sorry that I didn’t write as much as I normally do, my brain is still majorly hung over from BEA. Keep your eyes out for more BEA wrap-up posts and giveaways! What would you like to see about my BEA experience? What books are you going to be reading this summer??
