Super Duper Waiting On Wednesday

Yes, I am one of the lucky ones going to Book Expo America next week*, so I thought that for Waiting on Wednesday today I'd share my Go Home Happy list. I have a fairly long list of books I'll be checking out, but there are the ones I'm particularly looking forward to. I don't know that all of them will be available at BEA, but I'll have my eyes out for them!

So if we weren't all jealous about not going to BEA before, we certainly are now!! Great titles :)

I am jealous too, wish the promoters of this would have realized a lot of bloggers are teachers and librarians and scheduled it when school was out. I am also jealous that you will be able to get to look at both Extraordinary and Forge. Both books I am waiting for.

Have fun!

I am literally green with envy right now. I want to go so bad, but can't get off work. The new Rick Riordan sounds good! My WOW is at The Crowded Leaf.

I added several of these to my list. I am jealous about BEA, which never will work for me since it falls at the end of the school year. Sigh.

I posted yesterday about this PW article. I am so sad that I don't get to go this year. I'm looking forward to Extraordinary, Forge, Behemoth and a few of those others, too!
