BEA Recap & Book Haul


HOORAY, IM HOME!! 

That is right, I am finally back from BEA!! This was my second year at Book Expo America and it was just as amazing as last year! I had such a great time, but for whatever reason I did not take any pictures this year. I vow to make next year full of pictures! Here are some of the pictures that I did take, though...

This was the first BEA related photo I posted on twitter. It completely sums up how pumped I was for BEA lol. 

This was a cute sign I saw while standing in line for Gretchen McNeil. It completely sums up my whole summer life!

This was my ticket for Kami Garcia. Yea, I was #106. Yea, I still got a book even though the line was ridiculous, and Yea, it was completely worth it! Kami was so nice and dressed adorably. I wish I took photos lol. 

This is a big group photo of some book bloggers and I at the BEA Book Blogger Picnic in Central Park. It was so cool to meet some fellow book bloggers outside of the craziness that is BEA. 

I did get two photos of Jim Gaffigan only because I knew people wouldn't believe me when I told them I met him. Plus, I was told while waiting in line by staff that I was so far back in line that I probably wouldn't get a copy of the book at all, BUT I DID!! 

I asked him if I could take his photo really quick, so he did this face LMAO. He signed my copy saying "To Becky, My Best Friend". I saw him sign two others saying "Congratulations on getting out of jail" and "You're my Hero" as well LMAO. 

I honestly had such a blast! I really do wish I would have taken more photos, but I promise next year I will completely chronicle my trip with photos. I won't go overboard, but I will definitely take a picture of every author I meet. 

NOW IS THE TIME YOU HAVE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR!! THE TIME WHERE I SHOW YOU ALL MY BOOK HAUL...

  3. You have to, it is soooo fun!! I highly, highly suggest you find a way there, because you will not regret it for a second. It is seriously the best time of my life. You feel so at home, because you are completely surrounded by books and people who love books just as much as you do. Totally worth it!

  4. Thank you. And I hope you go! It is seriously so much fun and you won't regret it for a second. I highly recommend getting there at least once. And if you live closer to Chicago it will be there in 2016 so you could always save up and go then =)
