Book Expo 2018

Book Expo took place in NYC at the Javits Center this year. For me that meant a 14 hour car ride. I could have flown but that’s too many books to ship home and who knows what kind of condition they’ll be in when they get there.

Three days of the exhibit floor was kind of exhausting but worth every single mile walked. I paired up with some great girlfriends. If it wasn’t for them then I wouldn’t have gotten to bring home so much. Book Expo is always better when you can tackle it with friends. Thank you, Melissa and Stephanie.

There was a lot of good but also some bad. The bad being some popular people cutting lines and acting like they were royalty. That really angered a lot of us. All the amazing books we got to take home really made up for it.

Another bad thing was witnessing this guy dog ear pages in his book. I cringed every time. Get a freaking bookmark!!!

Now on to the good!!

Are you ready to see my haul!? Well, here it is!!

😍😍😍 I know! And we all know what my first read was from this haul. And let me tell you, that book was phenomenal!! (Review coming soon) Most we’re easily obtainable but there was one that was a mad dash with a secret password. It was worth the sweat and the elbows.

As always, Book Expo was fun and exhausting. I got to see friends who I love dearly and who I also haven’t seen in a year. I missed all of them so much.

If you have a suggestion on what I should read, please let me know!!

Happy Reading!!

Top Ten Tuesday!! Book Expo Edition!!

Happy May 1st everyone!!!

I’m going to be doing things a little differently today. I’m going to be talking about the books that I definitely want to pick up at Book Expo this year.

Anyone else going to Book Expo or BookCon? If you spot us, come say hello!

Enjoy!!!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

These are books that I’m dying to read and hope that they are handed out at Book Expo this year! Fingers crossed!!!

  1. All Your Perfects- Colleen Hoover

Which books are you most excited about?

The Belles- Dhonielle Clayton

“Your blood truly is divine.”

I forgot that I had received this book at Book Expo in NY last year. Digging through my tbr closet full of books makes me discover gems that I have forgotten all about. As I’m digging through hundreds of books, this beauty was staring straight up at me and I couldn’t resist. Why am I the last person to read such wonderous books? It’s also a strange coincidence that I’ve read and finished this during Mardi Gras! I’m feeling a tad bit lucky! Bring forth the King cake!

I’m one of those saps that will forever believe in love at first sight, be it a person or the first page of a book. This is how this book was for me. I was smitten from the beginning and I feel the same way now after finishing it. The story inside was truly as beautiful as the outside of this book. It was absolutely stunning.

And now let’s get down to the real reason why I’m gushing over this….. Is it possible to have two book boyfriends at the same time from the same book? Let me tell you! It is so possible and it just happened. I don’t care how big of a douche bag they both are but Remy and Auguste are it. I’d ship both of them at the same time! But we know me, I like rule breakers and assholes. I definitely need someone who can keep up. *swoon*

Everything about this book was highly addicting. The writing style was superb and it flowed together beautifully. Things were a lot darker than we all could have imagined and it was mind-blowing. You will savor every part of this book!

Don’t hesitate about picking up this book! Go and pick it up! You won’t be disappointed!
