Surprise Giveaway!

Hey fellow bookies! How has the week before BEA 2015 going for you guys? I have spent my time split between freaking out with preparations and foaming at the mouth with excitement. Anywho, I have some news! It has been in the works for the last couple of weeks and today is the day I get to share it with you guys!

I have been approached by author Victoria Scott's assistant to host a giveaway of Salt & Stone!



Haven't read Salt & Stone or even heard of the Fire & Flood series, no fret. Take a look below:

PublisherScholastic Press 
Release Date: February 25, 2014
Pages: 320

The Story:

What would you do to save someone you love?

Time is slipping away. . . .

Tella Holloway is losing it. Her brother is sick, and when a dozen doctors can't determine what's wrong, her parents decide to move to the middle of nowhere for the fresh air. She's lost her friends, her parents are driving her crazy, her brother is dying--and she's helpless to change anything.

Until she receives mysterious instructions on how to become a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed. It's an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother's illness. But all the Contenders are after the Cure for people they love, and there's no guarantee that Tella (or any of them) will survive the race.

The jungle is terrifying, the clock is ticking, and Tella knows she can't trust the allies she makes. And one big question emerges: Why have so many fallen sick in the first place?

Victoria Scott's breathtaking novel grabs readers by the throat and doesn't let go.

The Story:

How far would you go to survive?

In FIRE & FLOOD, Tella Holloway faced a dangerous trek through the jungle and a terrifying march across the desert, all to remain a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed for a chance at obtaining the Cure for her brother. She can't stop - and in SALT & STONE, Tella will have to face the unseen dangers of the ocean, the breathless cold of a mountain, and twisted new rules in the race.

But what if the danger is deeper than that? How do you know who to trust when everyone's keeping secrets? What do you do when the person you'd relied on most suddenly isn't there for support? How do you weigh one life against another?

The race is coming to an end, and Tella is running out of time, resources, and strength. At the beginning of the race there were one hundred twenty-two Contenders. As Tella and her remaining friends start the fourth and final part of the race, just forty-one are left . . . and only one can win.

Victoria Scott's stunning thriller will leave readers' hearts racing!

Prepping for BEA 2015!

Bookies! It is that time of year again! My favorite time of year. Yes, Book Expo America is next week and I am practically bursting withe excitement.

Can I get a "B-E-A!" ?

To add the frosting to the cake, this year BEA is practically 5 days long! 3 days for the regular BEA fair and 2 days for Book Con. Lucky me, since I am a book blogger, I get to go to Book Con for free! I am so stoked.

Backstory:

For those of you new Bookies on the block, BEA stand for Book Expo America. It is an annual #1 book and author event (basically one big book feast!), hosted at Jacob Javitz Center in my hometown, New York City -- however, some locos decided to host BEA 2016 in Chicago, NO! Moving on, BEA is a place where bibliophiles and bookiedeeds warriors can congregate and bask in their mutual love for the written word. Courtesy of BEA, attendees receive professional name tags that allow us permittance onto the show floor, several opportunities to meet our beloved authors and books! Hundreds of books! Books we get to have for, get this, FREE!

Do you understand now? Why why every thought is consumed about BEA?

BEA 2015 will be my fifth go! And I still can't believe it. Feels like only yesterday I was an amateur at my first BEA. With that said, check out my post from my previous years of attendance:
BEA 2011Day 1Day 2 & Day 3
Here's the checklist I use in preparation for BEA every year:
- Registration
- Strategy of assault (ex. color-coded schedule)
- Luggage
- Money for luggage check-in
- Oversized totes (just 1 or 2 since you'll probably snag some at BEA)
- Comfortable shoes
- Phone
- Packed lunch
- Water
- Book blogger business cards
- Portable phone charger
