So I am going to BEA next week and am so excited, especially because I will be sharing a house for the week with all these lovely people!

Because there's just so many of us and since we're all bloggers, we've created a Twitter account where you can check in on all the fun things we're doing. I also think we may be doing a live vlog event but I'm not sure if that's still happening. I do believe we will be doing vlogs every day talking about our experiences at BEA and in NYC- no idea where these will be posted but as soon as I know, I'll let you all know!
I also have some fun events planned during the week:
Tuesday- Blogger House BBQ
Thursday- This is Teen event featuring Meg Cabot, Maggie Stiefvater and Libba Bray at The Scholastic Store
Friday- Lady Gaga concert on Good Morning America (only a possibility right now)
Saturday- Books of Wonder event from 12-2 featuring Gail Carson Levine, Sarah Rees Brennan, Daniel Kirk, Bianca Turetsky, and Maurissa Guibord.
and then of course the three days at the actual BEA conference where I hope to meet tons of authors, bloggers, and publicists as well as grab some wonderful ARCs. I'm so excited for it.
Also, did you know Jane Lynch is going to be at BEA? I LOVE HER. She'll be there on Thursday doing a little talk and QnA then signing something. I'm not sure what she's signing because while she has a memoir coming out in September, there usually aren't ARCs of those. It'd be fun if they did a sampler though. I've got some friends joining me at that event so hopefully we can take action shots of us with Jane Lynch while she's signing.
Here are my top 5 authors and books to see and get:
Authors- Wendy Mass, Lisa Desrochers, Wendy Delsol, Maureen Johnson, and Micol Ostow
Books- Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson, Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins, Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America by Leslie Knope, Witch Eyes by Scott Tracey, and Between the Sea and the Sky by Jaclyn Dolamore
Do you guys wanna know anything else about my BEA trip? Leave a comment and I'll answer it either there or update this post.
