Weekly Book Recap #70 -- BEA 2014 Edition--Part 1

I've mostly finished the gargantuan, but happy task of unpacking the ARCs and books I brought home from last week's Book Expo America and pre-BEA events.  Among these many treasures are debut novels, highly anticipated books from acclaimed authors, and the newest installments in continuing series, representing many genres, and both fiction and non-fiction. It's what I call an amazing book bonanza.  I'm still pinching myself, and actually have two more suitcases of books to reveal--so stay tuned for next week's recap.

There are so many wonderful reads that I can't wait to start.  Although I'm not sure where to begin, I think I'll start with books that are already on my wish list.  Really looking forward to this year's summer reading!

These book updates are being shared on the following blogs:
