Waiting on Wednesday - BEA edition!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.
So, in honor of the fact that next Wednesday I'll BE at BEA, I thought I'd post a list of the books I'm looking forward to hopefully getting when I'm at BEA.  The list is kind of long, so I may not add cover pictures, just titles, authors, and links to their Goodreads page or other sites with information, I'll list them in alphabetical order by the author.  Here we go!

1. Some comics for kids books by Bill Amend (no link, not sure of what book is exactly, but I love Foxtrot!)
2.  Feed by MT Anderson (I know it's not new, but exciting to see him!)
3.  Cursed by Jennifer Armentrout
