The BEA 2015 Recap – Day 3

And we’ve come to the final day and final recap post of BEA 2015 🙁 I know, I know.  You’re all crying your eyes out as I am, BUT there’s always next year! So before we get into any more hysterics, I better go through my third day.

So originally, Friday was going to be the worst day of them all.  Apparently all the publishers decided to schedule all the authors I wanted at the same time that afternoon to sign their books.  Now, as a New Yorker, I’m pretty fast, but even I can’t be in 5 places at once! Luckily, the past two days I managed to grab some galleys which alleviated a majority of those signings so believe it or not, Friday turned out to be the lightest day in terms of crazy rushing! Yay for Galleys!

The BEA 2015 Recap – Day 2

After the craziness of running around on Wednesday, I was looking forward to a little more of a calming experience for Day 2, even if it was an earlier and longer day.

The main thing on the agenda this morning was grabbing Passenger by Alexandra Bracken.  I knew it was going to be ::crazy:: <–that’s in my sing song voice, so I was heading there first thing.  Meanwhile, the bro was headed to the James Dashner signing which was also going to be ::crazy::  Unfortunately for him, he didn’t find out until practically a foot from James, that he wasn’t signing his new book, The Game of Lives, but the first two books in the Maze Runner Series.  At that point he decided to just stay, but he was not happy after waiting that long only to learn they’re giving books he already has.  Meanwhile, on the Alexandra Bracken line, I was going a little nuts because it was taking FOREVER.

The BEA 2015 Recap – Day 1

In case you’re unfamiliar with BEA (Book Expo America), I spoke a little about it in my BEA prep post, but essentially it’s a huge book conference where book industry people, educators, bloggers, etc. from all over the world gather to talk about books, network, and get books!

Tuesday night I went to Jenny Han’s P.S. I Love You release party (there was food involved).  It was a fantastic night where I caught up with some blogger friends, met some new ones, and drove over the Brooklyn Bridge.
