BEA Experience

Wow, what a crazy three days its been! It was my first time attending BEA and overall it was amazing! I met so many awesome authors and bloggers. It was nice to put faces to some people. Besides my excitement it was also very tiring. My feet and shoulders are in a whole lot of pain. But, I wouldn't trade the experience for the world. Being in New York definitely helps since traveling isn't a problem for me. I seriously can't wait to attend next year! I really hope to see more bloggers that couldn't get a chance to attend this year. Anywho, below are all the pics of me with my clique of bloggers and all the phenomenal amount of ARC's I snagged. Did you go to BEA this year? I'd love to know your thoughts! :)

Jennifer (Reading With Tequila), Lexie (Poisoned Rationality), Taschima (Bloody Bookaholic), Emily (Red House Books), Sherry (Flipping Pages For All Ages), and Me

Sherry and Me :)

We're goofballs...

Sherry, Simone Elkeles (Ahh! Love Her!), Kelsey (The Book Scout), Me

Hardcover Books:

Adult Fiction Books:

Swag:

So that wraps up my epic experience at the BEA! It will be missed, till next year...

I also wanted to throw in a quick thank you to Brenda Pandos, author of The Emerald Talisman. She presented a few bloggers with this award for reviewing her book. A part of my review is now published in her book. I'm so excited and honored to be in it! Thank you again!

Well no wonder why I hardly saw you. My clique was totally different. I actually spent most of my time alone or with Rebecca and Steph Su. Well it was nice to say hi for all of like 30 seconds!

Dude! I almost bought that copy of You, but changed my mind at the last minute. You have me to thank for that copy. *nods*

Please explain to me how everyone else got I Am Number 4 and I missed it.

Sabrina (about happy books) said...

Wow, looks like you had a great time at BEA. All the books you got are awesome.

Lori said...

This makes me sick ;) Awesome books!!!! I hope you had a great time and I WILL be there next year!!! Now I'm off to cry....

Helen's Book Blog said...

Looks like you had a great time at BEA! I am so jealous of the books, the authors, and the blogger meet-ups!

~Jennifer~ said...

I had such a great time meeting you! I think I may be permanently damaged, but at least I'm not terrified of NY anymore. And I was totally serious about recruiting you as my NY buddy when I hear about something bookish going on up there.

I'm hoping to get my post - with the 1 lone picture I took up by Monday.

AtenRa said...

Glad to hear you've got a great time at BEA, though it comes as no surprise!Look at all the awesome book you got!!!!Jealous!Especially over Hunger and Reckless!...and only 90% of the others!
Well,enjoy them and I'm looking forward to your reviews :)

WilowRaven said...

Awwwww! Miss you already! Great pics. I'm putting together my post now. Have no idea how we managed to drag all those books around with us :)
Hope to have the few pics I did manage to take up next week.

My sister really wants to go to Strand so the next time I'm in NY I'm making you come with us :)

MissHavoc said...

Ahhh...I am SO jealous! I wish I could've gone, next year, maybe. Great books! Gosh, how hard was it to get your hands on Clockwork Angel? Amazing!

Tynga said...

Picture me jealous!! Me want TCA BAD!!!
Bf said we'll try to go next year yay <3

Robby said...

This is such a great post. I wish I'd gone! Simone Elkeles is so cute. :]

Christina T said...

Glad you had a great time at BEA. I hope I get to go someday. It sounds like a lot of fun!

You got some awesome books to read too. So jealous of Clockwork Angel and Beautiful Darkness :) I hope you enjoy them all! By the way-how did you cart all those books around?

Have a great weekend!

Melissa @ Flourish {and} Blotts said...

WOW! There is NO way I can miss this next year! You got so many graet books - I'm just dying over Clockwork Angel ... lucky lady! :)

I am so extremely happy (and extremely jealous) that you got all these great books! I wish I could read some of these!

The Book Vixen said...

Awesome books you got!! I wish I lived close enough to go. What a great experience to meet all the wonderful bloggers and authors!

Thanks for sharing your experience with us :)

*wipes drool off keyboard*

Girl on a Mission said...

Happy Reading!

Jess (The Cozy Reader) said...

Great lot of books you grabbed!!!

It was great seeing you at BEA. Even if it was only in lines to get autographed books! :)

Dazzling Mage said...

I am speechless. SPEECHLESS! These books are GREAT! Awesome picks! I'm glad you had a great time at BEA (wish I could have gone!).

Rebecca Herman said...

Looks you had a great time too! I got a lot of the same books but missed out on a couple.

Sherry @ Flipping Pages for All Ages said...

It was sooo awesome! So glad we got to spend the day together! Next year I'm def. going all three days! :)

Cleverly Inked said...

I am already planning on a trip to go next year. I can't wait to meet a lot of our fellow bloggers.

Donna said...

I'm glad you had a great time! I hope to catch up with you next year. I just posted my BEA wrap-up if you want to take a look.

Kristen said...

Looks like you guys had a fantastic time! I'm trying really hard not to be jealous and failing.. lol. :-D

Spellboundbybooks Melissa said...

Absolutely love the pics you've posted up! I'd love to go to something like that, but it's just too far away. Instead I'm opting for Brisbane Writers Festival in Australia. But somehow I don't think it will be as cool as BEA.

Great Collection of Books too. So Jealouse :) Happy Reading.

Alexia561 said...

Great collection of books! Would be jealous that you were able to get Feed and Rot & Ruin, but think I have plenty to read for quite awhile now. :)

Totally agree with you that all of the pain was worth it. Told my husband that BEA was my Woodstock! *L*

-k said...

I think that I just turned completely green with jealousy. I definitely need to go to BEA next year.

Kelly said...

So many great books, enjoy! :)

Riv Re said...

I regret not putting more thought into BEA...How did you land so many books? Did you buy them? Were they free? Contests?

Anyway, the Linger bookmark is beautiful. I can't wait to get my hands on the book. (I won a copy of it.)

Jess. said...

Ahhh I'm so sad I missed you! Maybe next year haha. Totally jealous that you got Feed. That book looks amazing. Can't wait to hear what you think of it.
-Jess.

Lauren said...

I'm officially green with envy. Looks like BEA was a lot of fun, and that stash of books is practically droolworthy. Nice going!

Eleni @ La Femme Readers said...

Riv Re: Everything was free. I made sure to make my rounds repeatedly and also plan a schedule for myself to land all these books. Good question, hope to see you next year! :)

geekyreads said...

Looks like everyone had a great time at BEA. Have fun reading all the books you got!

Tabathia said...

It looks like fun. Wish I could have attended. What do you think about others that attended just to sell the ARCs they received online...heard there have been alot of complaining about this. Do you think this will heart BEA next year?

Mary not so Contrary said...

Can I be you?!?!!! Great stash!!! Have fun reading it all and good luck reading it all. I just read the above comment and I have to say that I may not be a book blogger but I love book blogs and I think that those who are selling there ARCs are awful people! That is so beyond rude!!!

Eleni @ La Femme Readers said...

Tabathia: I agree with Mary not contrary, it truly is horrible and sad. Publishers spend so much money on ARC's and it's not right that people feel the need to sell them. I consider my ARC's prized possessions and would never sell them. However, I don't think it'll hurt BEA. Out of the thousands that attended, a few will prolly have the balls to do that. Great question!

Flo S. said...

wow, you got so many books it's scary...really scary. jk. you got The Clockwork Angel, I'm jealous, no, not really. Maybe a bit.

Book Butterfly (Kim) said...

My heart skipped a beat when I saw all your awesome books!! I wish I could've gone and hung out with you guys! Maybe next year. So glad you got to go- it seems like a BLAST!

Debbie's World of Books said...

OMG, so jealous you got a copy of Clockwork Angel! I wish I could have been there. Sounds like everyone had a great time.

Michelle said...

Gah! I am immensely jealous! ;) BEA sounds amazing and look at all of those amazing books. I'm extremely jealous of Delirium. BEA looks like Christmas for book fanatics haha.
