So, BEA! Wow.
I wish I could recap more eloquently, but I'm still half brain-dead from a couple dozen miles walked all over Manhattan (ow my feet), Friday's cross-coastal flight home, and a full-body adrenaline hangover. And also, from Teen Author Carnival Monday, which was indescribably awesome.

...and also early mornings camped out in line, joyous ARC-snagging, accidental free donut lines (thanks, Harper!), Hell's Kitchen thai food (see photo above), and seeing YAH friends like Michelle Hodkin (The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer), Tahereh Mafi (Shatter Me) and Kody Keplinger (Shut Out) soar.

Anyway, we have tons and tons of AWESOME ARCs, just in time for YA Highway's Second Anniversary Giveaway. Keep an eye out for it!
