Book Expo America - Day 2

Day 2 at Book Expo America was even more busy and crazy than Day 1. My friends were going to the Author Breakfast that morning but I wanted to do some things that started at 9 AM so I went to wait to be let into the exhibit hall again.

There seemed to be more people there on this day. I went right to the Cassandra Clare Clockwork Prince cover reveal. I was lucky to be there in time to get a t-shirt and chapter sampler. The cover is amazing-

I went right after and got in the insanely long line for Lauren Oliver. She`s so nice, and funny. It was awesome to meet her.

I heard that Lola and The Boy Next Door was available so I went to ask but sadly missed it. I got so many amazing books though that I can`t complain. I have to say that the people from Penguin are super nice.

This is the day that I started to notice some less than nice behaviour. People cut into lines, pushed others, and things like that. I was in a line and actually had people get in front of me. I am usually pretty shy and didn't really say anything but there were a few situations that resulted in me not getting books I had waited in line for an hour for. I was surprised that people would act like this.

Erin Morgenstern's book The Night Circus is being buzzed about right now. I am excited to read it. They gave us a little chocolate mouse with the book when she signed them. I thought that was a cute touch.

The books I got on Day 2 are:

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The Future of Us by Jay Asher, Carolyn Mackler
Crossed by Ally Condie
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Liesl and Po by Lauren Oliver
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Clockwork Prince sampler by Cassandra Clare (it's bout 3 chapters)
Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey
The Apothecary by Maile Meloy
Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris
Saving June by Hannah Harrington
Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa
Inside Out by Maria V Snyder

We decided to put a large suitcase in the checked baggage area overnight to keep all our books. I would do this again. It helps if you want to go see some of NYC after and don't want to carry all your books with you.


  1. You got some really great books! Very excited to start seeing your reviews!
    Truly Bookish

  2. Those are some great books! I'm so glad you had a great time :) I've heard so much about the rude behaviour of people at BEA... it's ridiculous. I can't even imagine some of the things I've heard. Oh well. Nothing anyone can do about it, I suppose. I hope you didn't let it ruin your day! It sounds like you had fun :)


I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
