Today is the big Giveaway Day at Armchair BEA Central! Those of us who are not hosting giveaways today (sorry!) have been asked to give up the names of some of our favorite books of 2012…books we’ve already read, and/or books being featured at Book Expo America this week that we can’t wait to read!
As it happens, three of my best reads so far this year have a BEA connection, even if it’s not to this year’s Book Expo:
Matthew Norman’s Domestic Violets was one of the hot titles featured at BEA 2011, so I’m counting it for this list.
Having said that, the chance to be in the same room with my long-standing author crush Michael Chabon is only part of why I snapped up a ticket to the Thursday-morning Adult Book and Author Breakfast; I would dearly love to bring home a galley of his upcoming novel Telegraph Avenue, due out in September, if there are any to be had! That’s easily my “most-anticipated book at BEA.”
I have a few other titles on my Books @ BEA list (and requested some galleys in advance when the opportunities came up–less shipping to do!), but they truly are few. Having said that, there’s still another day to see what ends up going home with me!
Whether or not you’re at BEA this week, what 2012 books are you most excited about?
