Book Expo of America

O-M-G I don't even know where to begin. Book Expo America ROCKS! We had no idea what to expect when we got there.

First our trip started on Monday at Simon and Schuster's Preview party. They had breakfast for us, lunch, goodie bags, and showed us a lot of great titles coming out this year, and early next year. We also got the chance to meet the author of Fury Elizabeth Miles, and author of Perfect Ellen Hopkins. Both authors read a sneak peek of their book and everyone got a copy to take home. Later on Simon held a raffle for some books and Maria won The Pledge by Kimberly Derting and I won Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series with the new covers. We had a blast! I really hope they do this again next year.

I didn't get the chance to take to many pictures at the Simon Preview party, but I managed to get these :-)

Author Elizabeth Miles shared with us a bit about herself and her book Fury.
(I am sure Maria and Wanda have more photos we can share on our facebook page)

Later that evening we attended the Teen Author Carnival at the Mulberry Street Library. That was a lot of fun, but way to hot inside lol. Maria and I actually just stayed for the first part of it and then left.

Author Andrea Cremer, Lisa Desrouchers, Michelle Hodkin, Elizabeth Scott, Courtney Allison Moulton, Malinda Mo and many more great authors! 

And even though I think I look horrible in this next pic... *Squee* I met Jeri Smith Ready and she was sooo nice!!! :-)

Here are some photos from Book Expo of America. I only have a couple of photos because honestly, I was just way to busy running around and sweating my butt off to worry about taking photos LOL. But I did meet some great authors and *Squee* Teresa Guidice from the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Author of Almost Human Series, Melanie Nowak and I

OMG, I know I have tons more, but this post is already way to long lol. Well thats a recap of our trip to NYC. I am sure Maria and Wanda will probably add to this or create their own little post lol.

It was really nice finally meeting everyone. I had such an amazing time at BEA and cannot wait for next year! If it is anything like it was this year, I am there! This is definitely a book lover's dream!


  1. Awesomeness Dee! Wish I was there! It looks like you had a blast! Good for you ladies! :-)

  2. Oh wow this looks like so much fun! So wish I could have been there but Australia is a bit far away :(

  3. Sounds like you had a fantastic time! Like Jess, wish I could've been there, but Australia's just that little bit too far! But maybe one day! *fingers crossed*
