BEA- Still Decompressing

My fourth time at BEA, and I still can't get over how amazing it all is.

The books, the authors, the excitement, the long lines, the fellow fans/bloggers/librarians/publishing professionals in line with you.

Thanks to my still aching feet and shoulders, I brought back TONS of ARCs and books to give away. There's a signed copy of The Fault In Our Stars, a copy of Libba Bray's new book, The Diviners, and Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Boys....just to name a few of the big ones I managed to snag.

I'm doing my How Many Have You Read/Heard contest (May reads) on Monday...with some of these exciting new ARCS, so come back then.

Anyone can enter to win. You will get bonus entries if you've read any of my May YA audiobook listens.

Right now, I want to share a pic of my most prized objects from BEA...Amazingly enough, they're not books this year.

Aren't they great? The tote is so high quality, it looks like something you'd buy at Barnes & Noble. And the t-shirt? Well, Poe was my first literary love and I was still a total fangirl around all the authors at BEA this year, so it's just perfect.

What about you? Which author (dead or alive) would you be a total fangirl/boy around?


  1. A signed copy of A Fault in Our Stars, I'm so jealous.

  2. This looks great. I'm glad you brought home the goods? Just out of curiosity, what does BEA stand for?

  3. I'm so jealous you got to go to BEA! And totes and t-shirts, AWESOME stuff!

  4. Angela- BEA stands for Book Expo Amaerica

  5. Sounds amazing-- as for fangirling-- Judy Blume is coming to my University and I'm hoping to afford tickets. She is just. so. cool.

  6. So jealous that you snagged a copy of DIVINERS! Looks like you had a great time at BEA--next year, I'm definitely going to go for more than a few hours.

  7. Sounds like you had a great time at BEA, it is a wonderful experience :)

    Just wanted to stop by and say thank you for commenting on my blog

  8. Oh wow, I'd love to go to BEA, sounds like you had a great time and you got loads of goodies!!
