BEA Bound 2014: Most Anticipated Books

As you might have guessed from my latest HuffPost article, I’m heading back to BookExpo America!

It’s been two years since I last attended (2012), and I can’t believe how much has changed for my and the blog since then.

For one, I’ve been blogging more than three years now, so my knowledge and perspective about blogging is 100 percent different. And for another, this will be my second time there, so I know more what to expect and how things run.

Although, I’m not sure anything can prepare you for fully for the Javits center craziness.

So, I know many of you probably don’t particularly care that I’m going to BEA. I don’t take it personally. There’s going to be a lot of pictures on Twitter and Instagram, so I can understand wanting to escape the craziness.

But, I know some of you are bloggers, so please forgive me for this rare book blogger-centric post. I will make it worth your while by listing some of my most-anticipated BEA reads. Which I hope to snag and then giveaway on the bloggins!

Where I’ll Be

I’ll be attending BEA Bloggers on Wednesday and BEA Thursday and half of Friday.

This is what I look like (although without a book so close to mah face), so PLEASE do not hesitate to say hi!

I seriously love meeting new people, so don’t be afraid to just say “Hey…are you Lisa?” If not, I’ll be standing awkwardly by myself looking like a noob. And no one wants THAT, right? (God, no).

Plus, I’ll be tweeting away @LisaMParkin and instagramming at @LisaMParkin.

I’ll also be attending some publisher parties, and am happy to carpool. Message me privately and we can coordinate!

I HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
