Books I’d Bite For At BEA! (2014 Edition)

Posted May 21, 2014 by Kaitlynn in Book Expo America / 16 Comments

BEA is almost upon us (again) and I thought I’d share some of my most anticipated titles with you guys.  I’m not sure all of these books will actually be at BEA but I’d be super excited if they are!

Also, this title is a total joke!  Do not bite anyone at BEA!


Mortal Heart (His Fair Assassin #3) by Robin LaFevers

This book is at the top of my wishlist for BEA! I adore this trilogy and I can’t wait to see how things are going to end. I’m hoping for lots of cameos from my favorite characters from the first two books!

Breathe, Annie, Breathe (Hundred Oaks #5) by Miranda Kenneally

Miranda Kenneally is signing copies of Breathe, Annie, Breathe at BEA and y’all, I plan to be one of the first people in that line! I’m so excited to meet Miranda since she is one of my favorite authors and of course I’m dying to read Breathe, Annie, Breathe.

Jackaby by William Ritter

This book was recently mentioned on Twitter and then I saw it on PW’s Childrens Galleys to Grab list and knew I was definitely going to need a copy. It’s described as Doctor Who meets Sherlock and while I’ve never seen Doctor Who (don’t hate me!) I love anything that’s compared to Sherlock Holmes.

Vivian Apple at the End of the World by Katie Coyle

This is another one that I saw on PW’s Childrens Galleys to Grab list. I’m intrigued by the whole idea of the Rapture and I’m a huge fan of road trip books so this sounds like the perfect book for me.

The Walled City by Ryan Graudin

First off, how gorgeous is that cover? I love it! Second, this book sounds so completely unique and fabulous. I’ve already seen a few reviews for it and so far everyone has loved it. I’m looking forward to it a lot!

I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson

Jandy Nelson’s debut, The Sky Is Everywhere, is one of my all time favorite books and I’ve been waiting for this book for what seems like forever. Honestly this book was on my TBR way before I even knew what it was about but I’ve been even more excited for it ever since I read the synopsis.

The Accidental Highwayman by Ben Tripp

This is said to be the perfect story for fans of The Princess Bride.  That’s all it took to get me interested in this one.

Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M. Lee

I’m not sure where I first saw this book but I’ve been dying to get my hands on it ever since.  I adore the cover and the story sounds wonderful.  I’m all for fantasy novels and this one sounds like a unique new story.

Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis

This book reminds me a lot of Cinder by Marissa Meyer and since I adored that book, I figure there is a good chance I’ll enjoy this one.

Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper

I’m a big fan of historical fiction and I really haven’t read many lately.  While this one does have a dash of magic, I still look forward to reading it for the historical aspect more than anything.

What do you think of my choices?  What books are bite-worthy for you?

  1. These all look so good. I’m looking forward to Mortal Heart. I hadn’t really heard of the others before, but Stitching Snow sounds interesting. I LOVED Cinder! Gates of Thread and Stone also sounds interesting. I love a good fantasy 🙂

  2. I hope you have fun at BEA! Unfortunately, I can’t go because I’ll be busy until the end of May because it’s my graduation (and! I’m really forward into reading Breathe, Annie, Breathe, too! I’ll read anything by Miranda Kenneally. She’s one of my favorite authors. 🙂

  3. The Sky is Everywhere was my favourite read of 2010 and I’ve been waiting on another book from Jandy Nelson ever since. I love the premise for I’ll Give You the Sun and going to her signing is one of my top priorities at BEA. I’m not sure I’d bite anyone for the book, but I might unleash a hedgepiggy on them. Kill with kindness, distract with cuteness. That’s the way.

  4. HEIR OF FIRE HEIR OF FIRE *fangirls* This is the book I have to have as well as the Return and Stone Cold Touch. I am seriously just freaking out at the mere thought that a week from now I will possibly have these books in my hand.

  5. All of these books look awesome, but I am especially excited for Salt & Storm…I love when authors combine historical fiction and fantasy. Have a blast at BEA. I can’t go, so I will have to live vicariously through everyone!

    OMG, I still remember hearing about the biting incident a few years ago, LOL.

    Mortal Heart is #1 on my list and I am also dying to get Heir of Fire. Gates of Thread and Stone looks really good, is it definitely going to be at BEA?

      I don’t know if Gates of Thread and Stone will for certain be there but I’ve heard a couple people mention that they thought it would be.

  7. I’m so excited for Breathe Annie Breathe! It is probably the one i’m most excited for from your list.. same as The Mortal Heart but I still need to read Dark Triumph. Hope you score copies of all these books!

  8. I love when you post things like this because you have the best taste in books! Have all of these pulled up in Goodreads to check out 🙂

  9. I really hope you are able to get all of the ones you want! I really need to get around to reading the second book in Robin’s series. I read Grave Mercy as an ARC a long time ago, but I am behind now. 😛
