Welcome to my BEA Book Haul! I know, I know, I’m a tad late. It took me three tries to record this haul thanks to the heat and other mishaps. Anyway, I picked up almost 25 books (if you include the finished copies).
Some of the books: Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater, Landline by Rainbow Rowell, The Iron Trial by Cassandra Clare and Holly Black, Skink No Surrender by Carl Hiaasen, Damsel Distressed by Kelsey Macke… To see the whole list, check out my BEA 2014 Goodreads shelf!
Book Expo America was great and only somewhat overwhelming! It was great to see book blogger friends, fellow book lovers, booktubers, authors, and so many other fun people.
BookCon was everything. Fun, overwhelming, insane… I didn’t expect so many people to be there! Sure, Veronica Roth and John Green had panels, but WHO KNEW 10,000 people would be there! It made BEA seem like a wide open field in comparison, space-wise and people-wise. During the BookTube Meet Up at the Con, I definitely got a bit overwhelmed and maybe almost had a panic attack or something because there were so many people! Ahhh. I signed books, badges, labels, got hugs, a bracelet, took pictures… A lot happened in an hour or however long it went! It was one of those things where I lost track of time.
The second/post-BookCon meet up was a bit more chill. The guys working at the Strand said if we wanted to meet there next year that if we called beforehand, they’d set up a room for us! Whoaaaa. It was actually pretty funny because one of the guys working there asked me if this was an internet meet up and when I said yes, he said, “I’ve been to a couple of those! Cool!” Okay, I like you, Strand. You have cool people. And awesome books for great prices.
