Stacking the Shelves (#24) - BEA Recap & Book Haul

Stacking the Shelves, which is hosted by Team Tynga's Reviews, is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This mean you can include books you buy in a physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course, ebooks.

Hi Lovelies!

It been ages since I've done one of these. Almost a year. I decided to come back with a bang since I went to BEA2014 and it was an absolute blast. I was lucky enough to grab some of my must haves along with some that I had my eye on for a while. I won't link the books because, honestly, that would take me forever, and I'm still trying to catch up on my loss of sleep from last week. If you see some asterisks(*), it means that it a signed copy.

First off are the finished copies that I managed to grab:

Those are my babies right there. They didn't leave my eyesight all throughout BEA and on the trip home. 

And these are just some of the pictures I managed to get of some of the authors who's line I made:
Amy Plum

Christina Lauren

Sarah J. Maas

Speaking of Sarah J. Maas, I was in line for her 2 hours beforehand and it was INSANE. However, since she was a priority for me, I sucked it up and made the best of it. Thankfully, I had one of my best friends with me, Daisel, who blogs for Owl Always Be Reading, waiting in line with me.
Besties waiting for Sarah =)

Since Daisel knew I was super excited and was going to be a fangirl mess, she took over and took pictures for me. Bless her heart.
Almost to Sarah!

Trying to contain my inner fangirl

My baby!

And then I promptly sat down to read right at the next signing. *happy sigh*

I managed to snag this beauty as well:

And on Book Con *shudders*(such a nightmare) I manage to see Danielle Fisher AKA TOPANGA!

Since I have family in New York, I met up with them after BEA and just drove around the city. It was such a nice break after spending the past 3 days stuck inside a convention center. It actually felt like I was in New York then. Here's me in Brooklyn, enjoying the nice weather and the view:

That's it for me. I hope I can get back into the swing of doing Stacking the Shelves again. Maybe not every week but every few weeks. Can't wait to see what everyone is adding to their shelves!


  1. Incredible haul!! So envious that you got to go to BEA. I did RT this year, but I think I am going to do BEA instead next year! Incredible haul! Hope you enjoy all those reads!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. Great Haul!! I was at BEA and picked up one of those tote bags and several of the same books. I had to be very selective since I flew and needed to fit everything into my two carry on bags.

    I hope you enjoy all of your new books. I like how you have already planned out when you are going to read them.

    Here is my STS/BEA post:
