I’ll be attending ALA Midwinter this weekend. It’s my first Midwinter so I have no idea what to expect, but I’m looking forward to it! I had planned to stay for 4 days and see the awards press conference on Monday, but with Jake hanging in here, I was feeling a little selfish when I bought my plane tickets and will fly in Friday and out Sunday. I may regret this – we’ll see.
I can’t help but hope to get my hands on some ARCs this weekend. I am dying to read Susan Beth Pfeffer‘s This World We Live In. I don’t know if Harcourt will have them, but I can hope! I did read online that Random House will have copies of Carrie Ryan‘s The Dead Tossed Waves, which is the other ARC I’d love to score. We’ll see what turns up!
