BookExpo America 2014!

BookExpo America is the single most exciting event that I anticipate every year. And BEA 2014 did not disappoint!

Once again, huge thanks to my Aides *job description: snagging ARCs and heavy lifting*, who are also my big little brother, Devin, and my parents I was able to snag nearly all of the books on my most wanted list plus awesome books I didn't even know I wanted. Not to mention, I was able to share my favorite event of the year with my favorite people =)

Can't believe this year was my fourth! How time flies . . . And yet, I can't wait for next year.

May 29th: Day 1 Highlights

This year was lucky enough to be invited to Harlequin Teen Blogger Breakfast again by Lisa Wray. It was fantastic. We had speed dating with authors as well as Harlequin Teen personnel. AND we received a goodie bag with swag and ARCs (Advance Reader Copies).

*I received the ARCs in pictured in the flyer

Here is a closeup of the author panel from the breakfast:

Jennifer Amentrout, Alexandra Adornetto, Robin Talley & Adi Alsaid

I snagged a copy of BLACK ICE by Becca Fitzpatrick!!!

As you very well know, Becca is on my Top 5 Favorite Authors List so you can imagine how excited I am to crack it open!
