Thursday: Fangirl moment
I also received a signed copy of Collectors edition MazeRunner/Scorch Trials from James Dashner, Armada by Ernest Cline, Passenger by Alexandra Bracken and The Cage by Megan Shepard.
In total I came back to the hotel with 21 books but 1 is being given to a friend.
Overall it was a successful 2nd day. is going to be a little better after I stand in line for Leigh Bardugo Six of Crows. From that point on it will be more of a relaxed wondering around day.

Friday: Signing Time
Today was by far the best day. Got every book on my list for today. 6 of them are signed the other 4 were drops.
Leigh Bardugo and I talked about nails and I got a picture with her.
Julie Murphy thought it was awesome that her line was so long. Oh I got to hold the sign to start that line.
Michael Buckley jumped up and hugged me when I got to his in booth signing for Undertow. He kept teasing me over Twitter about riding my horse to get places quicker.
Met Jackson Pearce and fangirled over her fairytale retellings. Sadly no pictures because of there being a line.
Started and stood in line with some amazing vloggers for
Everything,Everything by Nicola Yoon. She was so sweet and then Rainbow Rowell cut us in line and we told her as long as we could take a selfie it was acceptable.
Went to get Never,Never by Brianna Shrum. It's a Peter Pan type story. I really got it signed because a fellow blogger Hafsah Lazaif designed the cover and it is gorgeous.
Walt stood in line for Soundless by Richelle Mead. She wasn't personalizing cause of the long line but Walt pulled the "it's for my great granddaughter" card.
To wrap up the last day of BEA we went to a blogger dinner at Bourbon Street Bar & Grill. Delicious food and great bookish company. Lots of laughs and memories. Felt so surreal to be around blogs that I've followed for years and have them talking to me.
Overall Id say the last day was successful. I'm excited to do tourist things this weekend. I'm so grateful that Walt came with me and stood in all those crazy lines just to get books with me. It means the world and I know I'm a lucky great granddaughter.
