The Sunday Post #22 (5.4.14)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
I've decided to try a new weekly meme - a place where I can do both a weekly wrap up and share what books I get all in one post, so I'm going to give The Sunday Post a try, and also link up with Sheila's It's Monday Post over at Book Journey.  

So, May is here, which means BEA is only weeks away!!! I'm so excited, but also a tad bit nervous! I'm trying my best not to get overwhelmed with all the posts out there about scheduling and what to do and what not to's almost information overload. If you've been and have any helpful tips, please share. Also let me know if you'll be there this year - I'd love to meet you!

Have a great week everyone!!!

  1. Enjoy BEA, and it will all work out. Somehow we managed to get everything done. Have a wonderful week Kristin!

  2. Oh I really hope you'll enjoy BEA! I would love to go and see it one day so let's hope. You have got some really interesting books. Great haul :)

  3. BEA is crazy but also a lot of fun. Don't get too crazy about scheduling and trying to get *every* book or else you'll make yourself crazy. Make your plan but be willing to be flexible.

    You'll meet so many people once you're there! Relax and enjoy yourself!

  4. Enjoy BEA! Have a great week!

  5. I am looking forward to Live to See Tomorrow. Looks like a few other good ones made their way to your stacks. Have a great week.

  6. Congrats on going to BEA! Hope you have a great time. I have all of Jojo Moyes' books on my TBR list, but I just haven't gotten around to any of them yet. *sigh* One day! Hope you have a great week!

  7. I always love reading the list of books you've read and are about to read as many on my list too. Do hope BEA goes well, so envious of you. I am sure it will be amazing - just remember to breathe!

  8. BEA sounds like a lot of fun. I won't be able to go until I retire though. It falls too near the end of our school year to get the time off. I got The Sweet Life Bundle this week too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  9. I'd love to go to BEA sometime, well visiting the US is my first priority and BEA would be a bonus :)
    Great book line up ... so many on my TBR pile or wishlist. Have a wonderful week and happy reading!

  10. Good luck at BEA! I'm hoping to go next year and know that it is going to be intimidating, even though it won't be in New York next year. It always sounds like so much fun though. You are going to have a blast!

  11. Good luck at BEA! I'm so glad that Canada is finally getting our version of it in the fall called Inspired. Have fun and happy reading :)
