BookExpo is my Super Bowl. Every year, I look forward to it: I print out dozens of pages of ARC giveaways and author/illustrator signings, and make sure to wear my comfiest Doc Martens to hit the Javits Center.
The festivities started off with the Library Reads author dinner – this one was for adult books (as in grownup books), and the list of authors was amazing: literary powerhouses Colson Whitehead and Jacqueline Woodson, TV writer and producer Gary Janetti (shoutout to my fellow Vicious fans out there!), Annalee Newitz, founder of one of my favorite SFF sites, i09, E.R. Ramzipoor, whose novel, The Ventriloquists, has shot to the top of my TBR, and Nefertiti Austin, who blew me away just reading the summary of her new book, Motherhood So White.
So my TBR continues to grow…
Motherhood So White: A Memoir of Race, Gender, and Parenting in America, by Nefertiti Austin
Do You Mind if I Cancel? (Things That Still Annoy Me), by Gary Janetti
The Future of Another Timeline, by Annalee Newitz
The Ventriloquists, by E.R. Ramzipoor
The Nickel Boys, by Colson Whitehead
Red at the Bone, by Jacqueline Woodson
More to come when I’ve had a chance to start wandering through my BookExpo goodness and start blogging it!
