My Adventures at #BEA15 ~ The Books!

Posted June 11, 2015 by Michelle in Life off the Blog / 15 Comments

PrintOf course the best part about BEA is all the awesome books and swag you come home with. I wanted to show you all the books that I got, I was only there for one day so I didn’t get as many as some people and like I explained in the last post I didn’t plan this out as well as I should have but over all I was very happy with all the books I came home with.

I was trying to figure how to make this post so I took pictures of the stacks of books that I got so I will post the picture and under them have each name with a link to goodreads. It was easier than putting all the book covers. So lets get to it than…

A few of the books are book #2 and I actually am going to grab book 1 when I have the chance since I want to read them. I was very happy with my haul this time around, I might not have gotten all the “popular” books but I always love discovering books that are unknown but have great potential. So I am looking forward to most of these. The signed books in the first picture I have doubles of and might be giving them away, soon.


I had such a great time, Thank you so much for stopping back to see what books I got at BEA.

Have an amazing day and Happy Reading!

  1. So stoked to see that BECOMING DARKNESS was among your haul. I hope you get a chance to read it, as I love to hear feedback from people who are as passionate about books as you are. Book bloggers are the greatest, and they make me, as a writer, feel that all the long and lonely hours behind the keyboard have been worth it. It took years to get BECOMING DARKNESS into print, and there were a few hiccups along the way, but when I see people taking an interest in it, I feel it my patience and hard work was justified.

    Enjoy all those books!

    With sincerest and warmest regards,

  2. Lots of good stuff! BEA looks so fun. I think Alice in Wonderland sounds great- anytime you have asecret society and high school mixed together, that has promise! LOL. Hope they’re all awesome.
