My BEA (Book Expo America) experience
So this was my first year at BEA and when first getting there I was a bit overwhelmed. I mean the line was so long and there was so much to do and see. I was not even sure if I was in the right place. While waiting in line for the doors to open I go to see a street team in action getting ready to pass out masks to those of us enter to promote Melissa Marr’s Carnival of Souls.

After that it was off to Ellora’s Cave to get some adult books are me and I got to see some hot men and even meet Ashlyn Chase who signed her book Love Cuffs for me. I loved the book and review will be coming soon.

The rest of the day was amazing as I got a ton of books and met some really people, some were fellow bloggers and some were bookstore owners, I even meet a really sweet librarian who had a list of wish list books for all the children who come to her dept.
Day 2 was a lot of fun and I got to meet some really cool famous people as you will see in the pictures below. Day two I focused on autograph signings and spent a good part of the day in line however I still managed to get a good amount of books.

By Day 3 I was so beat, I almost did not go but so glad I did. I was much more selective in what books I got and even managed to get more signed copies of books and focused a lot more in just taking the whole experience in. I even got to meet Sylvia Day and got a signed copy of her new book Bared To You.

I am looking forward to next year's BEA! Until then I have a ton of books to read and many reviews to come.....
