Armchair BEA 2014: Wrap-up!

Posted May 31, 2014 by Bee in Special Events / 12 Comments

Since I can’t go to BEA in New York, I decided to sign up for Armchair BEA this year! I was too late for it last year, but this year I’m in! So this week’s post will be all about Armchair BEA! This is the wrap-up post, so let’s see what I talked about this week!

Day #1: Introduction

On day 1I answered 5 questions from the list the organizers of Armchair BEA gave on their website! It was hard to choose 5, but I think I chose the right ones.

Day #2: Author Interaction

On day 2 I talked about Author Interaction! I showed you guys some pictures of what I’ve received from authors so far and in what ways I talk and interact with authors.

Day #3: Expanding Blogging Horizons & Novella’s/Short Stories

On day 3 I talked about how I expanded my blogging horizons by moving to wordpress and giving my blog a new look! I also talked about my own writing and shared my favorite novella: The Little Android by Marissa Meyer.

Day #4: Beyond the Borders & Giveaway!

On day 4 I talked about diversity in books! I shared my first real ‘diversity’ book and my current favorites. Plus I hosted a giveaway which you can still enter! Just click on the title of the post.

Day #5: Middle Grade/Young Adult & Topic of Choice: Book-to-Movie Adaptions

On the last and 5th day I shared my top 3 YA Fantasy/Sci-Fi series and talked ab out about book-to-Movie adaptions in the YA/Middle Grade genre.


And that’s it! It was a lot of fun participating in this and I was among the winners of the first Instagram Challenge! I’m definitely signing up again next year if I can’t make it to BEA itself!

    I’ve had so much fun visiting all the blogs on Armchair BEA. This is my first year and I’ve had such a good time that I plan to come back next time. I’ve added a ton of books to my TBR list as well as added a lot of book friends on twitter, goodreads, and bloglovin. Thank you so much for participating and making it a great first year for me.
