My BEA Haul

Amazingly, my 2 huge, heavy boxes from BEA showed up on Monday, just one business day after I packed them up in NY. I couldn’t believe it. I finally unpacked them today and took photos of the haul. I tried to be judicious this year, but as you can see, I didn’t succeed.

Here they are!

Fiction (mostly):























































Kids’ books:








So there they are. I am most excited about some of the fiction titles, including:

The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond

Mrs. Fletcher by Tom Perotta

The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen by Hendrik Groen

The Windfall by Diksha Basu

An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

The Wife Between Us by Sarah Pekkanen and Greer Hendricks

But I am sure there will be a lot of surprises and hidden gems as well.

    Wow! That is a haul! I listened to the podcast and I’m with you- I’m not sure how long I’m going to be able to hold out before reading Mrs. Fletcher.

    I just finished The Windfall and it’s really good. It has all the wealth snobbery of the Crazy Rich Asians books, but set in India and with another layer of complexity mixed in.
