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!!
