As I was on my way home from NYC last Saturday, I didn’t do a Stacking the Shelves post so this week’s obviously includes the books I picked up at BEA! I can’t believe a week has already gone by since all the festivities.
This Past 2 Weeks on Just a Lil’ Lost…
- Reviewed Dan Brown’s Inferno, Emily Winslow’s The Start of Everything and for Brunch Book Club Maureen Johnson’s The Name of the Star
- Swooned over Book Expo America 2013
- BEA recaps of Thursday, Friday and the parties!
- My Final Thoughts (goods/bads/learnings/observations) on BEA 2013.

Outcast by Adrienne Kress | Purchased at Adrienne’s book launch party on Thursday! Recap to come later this week
Won this in the raffle draw at the SimonTeen blogger preview party! The entire Cassandra Clare collection, signed and in hardcover! Plus the first “public” copy of the movie cover for City of Bones (which I actually love this cover more than the origianl), a couple posters and a Clockwork Angel pin.
The fantastic gift bag at the SimonTeen party which included: OCD Love Story by Corey Ann Haydu, When I Was the Greatest by Jason Reynolds, Fire with Fire by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian, Chantress by Amy Butler Greenfield, Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick & Suzanne Young, Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano.
The lovely (and educational!) gift bag at the Scholastic war-themed reception with Suzanne Collins & Walter Dean Myers. Books include a copy of Suzanne’s book Year of the Jungle and Walter’s Invasion as well as Torn by David Massey and Duke by Kirby Larson. Definitely going to gift the education guides to my teacher sister for her to use!
Thanks for stopping by! 😎
