Spotlight: BEA Books

20 Jun

I mentioned in my BEA wrap up post that I brought home quite a few books from New York, but I wanted to highlight a few that I’m particularly excited about. Where the books are available for order, I’ve linked the covers and the titles to Powell’s Books. I’ve sorted these by their on-sale dates, but keep in mind, these could change.

    Nice swag. I just read about The End of Everything today over on Dead End Follies – it sounds interesting. The Night Circus also sounds awesome.
