New To My Shelves #173- #BEA14 Addition

Happy Sunday! Welcome to this week's edition of New To My Shelves (previously known as In My Mailbox (IMM) / Stacking the Shelves (STS) or My Weekly Round Up in the Stacks. This week's posts features the goodies I received at BEA. You can check out all the other goodies that have arrived & see more of pictures from BEA via my Instagram account. 

BEA14 was a blast! It's hard to believe that a week ago I was in NYC. I don't know where the week has gone. I had so much fun in the few days I was there. It's amazing at how much I was able to cram into two days of being at BEA. I did a really quick re-cap from day 1 here. This coming week I'll be doing a more detailed re-cap from both that Friday & Saturday I was there.

Since Saturday was my crazy day at BEA, as I worked Cassie's signings and the YA Panel she was on, Friday was my day to attend a publisher luncheon, meet with a couple publishers, and a try to meet as many blogger friends as I could. For me, BEA is about networking, and meeting the people I contact/work with often, wether it a publishing house or a blogger friend. I LOVE meeting people. I tried to visit all the publisher booth while there on Friday, but sadly I didn't get to every publisher booth to say hi. I purposely did not go to any ARC drops and stayed clear of the booths during those times. It gets CRAZY then. haha

Here are the goodiesI received, though some of the ones listed I ended up giving away the next day to a first year high school teacher who was trying to build her classroom library. I either already had an arc of the book at home, or I didn't have room to take it home with. The books I gave away were ones I had been gifted at publisher event.

A good friend of mine surprised me with two totally AWESOME Shadowhunter gifts. Both of these items were goodies Simon & Schuster had handed out during Cassie's CoHF release party, which took place in NYC the Monday of BEA. The Shadowhunter Tarot Cards set & The Shadowhunter Hoodie, which S&S was also giving out during BEA!! Thank you Erin!

Heir of Fire was one of a few books that I had on my BEA wish list. Luckily waiting in the 2 hour line totally paid off! Thank you to Erica of Bloomsbury who gave me the epic bag while visiting with her at the Bloomsbury booth. I love it!

THANK YOU to Simon & Schuster, Scholastic, Spencer Hill Press, Bloomsbury, Little Brown, Disney Hyperion, St. Martin's Griffin, Penguin, and Erin for these fabulous reads! I can't wait to feature them on MMs.
