Waiting on Wednesday: Book Expo America

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

That’s right – we can’t wait for Book Expo America! This year Em isn’t able to come but thankfully Sash is going! Last year, we attended BEA for the first time and had such an amazing experience that S is back for more!

In case you’re not familiar, Book Expo America is a publishing event that brings together publishers, readers, authors, and the general public to celebrate – what else? – BOOKS!

Not only do we love seeing our favorite authors and having them sign copies of our books:

Sash and one of her favorite authors, David Levithan.

but we also get to hang out with our blogging friends:

Us getting Pinkberry with Jamie, Tara, Anna, and April! Love these girls.

Getting drinks with Anna (photographer!), April, Tara, and Jamie.

and publishers throw awesome parties for their books:

1920’s Prohibition style party hosted by Little, Brown to celebrate Libba Bray’s The Diviners.

Let us know if you’re going too and what you’re most excited for!
