BEA is on the way!

I'm once again headed to Book Expo America in New York from June 3-8, 2012.  I attended last year and it was an awesome experience so I'm glad to be going back this year.  YOU, yes YOU, can join the fun here on my blog as I post the highlights when I recap each day and its events.  You can also watch the action live via the embedded player that I'm going to have posted here.  It should be a pretty great week!  Here are some of the books and authors that I'm excited for:

Tuesday June 5

Peter Tomasi will be signing trade paperbacks of Batman & Robin: Born to Kill- I loved this story arc and am so excited to see this on the schedule!
Andrea Cremer will be signing copies of Rift- her prequel to the Nightshade trilogy, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Leah Clifford will be signing copies of A Touch Morbid- I love this series and Leah.
Maria V. Snyder will be signing Touch of Power and Inside- her books are lovely and so is she.
Rachel Vincent will be signing Soul Screamers Volume 1- I'm all about this series.  Team Tod all the way.
Julie Kagawa will be signing The Immortal Rules- she's a sweetheart and a genius.
Lauren Oliver will be signing The Spindlers- she's as sweet as the day is long and her books are beautiful.
Maggie Stiefvater will be signing The Raven Boys- I did not get to see Maggie at last year's BEA so I really hope to make it to this signing.
Marie Lu will be signing Patriot- a book firmly placed on my To Read list.
Melissa Marr will be signing Carnival of Souls- I love her books.  Every one.
This is by no means all of the authors and books I hope to see on Tuesday.  There is also the Teen Author Carnival in New York that night with SO many great YA authors signed up to attend.  Tuesday is going to be a big day.

Wednesday June 6
