Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.  BEA is upon us!  I have so much to do still before I leave for New York on Tuesday and let me tell you, I am feeling the pressure.  I am the WORST at packing – seriously, I will always forget something, no matter how many times I check and double check.  And even though BEA is less than a week away, I am STILL acquiring new books.  What is wrong with me??

Obviously, I will be at BEA this week.  If you see me around, don’t hesitate to say hi!  I’m a big shy, so I’m horrible at just starting conversations, but don’t worry, I don’t bite.  You can find me haunting the Bloomsbury booth in hopes of finding a copy of Heir of Fire, and in the signing lines because AS KING YALL.  If you don’t know what I look like, here I am!


I have half brown, half pink hair, and I will be wearing something with skeletons on it every day.  I shouldn’t be too hard to find.  I hope to see you there!bekka


Hi, guys! Kara here. It’s been a few weeks since I did a haul. And I have a hugeeee one. I really wanted to do a vlog but my sleeping pattern is messed up and I am supposed to be in bed now. So I am a tired mess and not nearly appropriate for camera. Let me tell you, having a Circadian sleep disorder stinks giant giraffe balls. Or should I say flamingo balls? Wait, birds don’t even HAVE balls, do they?

*shakes head* Okay, so books. I have a ton which is why I wanted to do a vlog in the first place. I hope I am seeing you all in New York next week at BEA too! Just in case you don’t know what I look like (with all the selfies I take, how could you not though?), I am posting a photo of myself. Don’t be shy. If you see me and want to say hi, PLEASE DO!! I really want to meet you all! And I am not exactly always cognizant of my surroundings. I have anxiety and I suck at multi-tasking, so I kind of do a tunnel vision thing sometimes. Anyway, here I am!


And that photo is really recent. From like a month ago when I went to the Blue October concert. OMGGGGGGGGG. That is another post for another day, I suppose. On to the books!

I’ve changed my mind and decided to vlog.

Lyn here. The countdown to BEA is ticking down, and we have just mere days left before we are converging on the East coast.  I don’t have any type of haul to share this week, but I am certain that there will be some good things for the future posts.  Time to lock down, post like crazy, pack, and head off!  I hope to see a lot of you there!!
