The Epic BEA 2015 Haul

Here’s what I’ve been up to over the weekend: organising all the books I got from BEA. And you know I mean it, when I say all the books. Today, I’m finally sharing my BEA 2015 haul with you! You know you’ve been waiting for it. *winks*

Love Always ・ Lady Midnight

I’m not an excerpt/teaser reading person so I don’t usually like samplers but I couldn’t resist Magnus Chase and Lady Midnight because I’m such a huge fan of the previous series of both Rick Riordan and Cassandra Clare! I’m also curious about the Star Wars retellings mostly because of Alexandra Bracken so I grabbed the last lonely copy at the Disney booth. As for Love Always, I totally thought that was a galley. Fail.

Awesome Swag + Totes

I got so many fabulous swag from BEA- a whole bag of stickers, magnets, buttons, bookmarks, totes! When people asked me “Would you like a ____?” I just couldn’t say no! And so many of them were awesome looking so yeah, I was enticed!

bea 2015 book totes

I actually got about ten totes in total but these are my favorites. The Quirk Books one is just so cute (love that heart of books) and the one on the right is actually a tote from, The Novl. It just seriously happened that they had Stay Bookish on the back. How awesome is that? I didn’t pay them to put that there, swear.

And that’s it for my BEA haul! It doesn’t look that huge since I broke the piles down for the photos but if you see the current pile at my desk, it’s pretty overhelming. I’m definitely not keeping all these to myself and plan to do giveaways along with my recaps. Watch out for those!

If you were at BEA, what were some of your favourite acquisitions? Any titles on the pile you’re looking forward to checking out?

  1. Love your book haul Hazel! I’m seriously drooling over them! Especially Illuminae (AMAZING HARDCOVER ARC, HOW ‘BOUT THAT??), Hello Goodbye, Passenger and Black Widow!! I’m glad you got so many books and meet authors and other bloggers! ❤️

    1. Thanks, Inah! The hardback of Illuminae is seriously drool worthy. But also intimidatingly huge! Meeting authors and other bloggers definitely was the highlight of my BEA experience though!

  2. Your book haul is so huge, Hazel, you must’ve raided the entire exhibition floor! :O The book I’m most excited about in your stack is Another Day by David Levithan. I’ve wanted it since the moment I found it that it would be the sequel to Every Day.

    You’ve got a whole lot of titles I didn’t hear of before, so I’mma busy myself on Goodreads for the next 15 mins thanks to you! Haha.

    1. That’s the thing- I wasn’t able to raid the show floor that much because my feet were already tired from standing in line/walking. I felt like I visited the same booths over and over- Little Brown, Penguin, Macmillan, etc- and just from those booths they already had so many titles to offer!

      I’m definitely psyched about getting Another Day too! I loved Every Day! Happy shelving, you. ;)

  3. A thousand nights, Truthwith, Lair of dreams, Passenger, Daughter of deep silence, Hunter; you have some of my highly anticipated books there *strokes all the pretty spines* You also got some awesome swag, I love tote bags :D Happy reading!

  4. Ooh, having a tote with your blog name on it! NEAT. And that Quirke Books one is amazing. I would totally buy that if I saw it for sale anywhere. Aah. So nice. (This is apparently actually an ooh aah comment?)
    BEA sounds incredibly fun but also intensely draining, stressful and a place to go when you also want to build up muscle strength. Carrying around 77 books would have been a struggle for me, I can tell you, especially when I’m trying to get to stalls. I wonder if anyone tripped and dropped all their books? (The idea is actually really sad. If that happened, I hope they were swarmed by helpful readers, authors and publishers.) I hope you’re planning on doing more BEA posts- I’d love to read your event recaps!

  5. THAT IS ONE HECK OF A HAUL!

    *STARES AT YOUR COPY OF TRUTHWITCH*
    *STARES AT YOUR COPY OF ILLUMINAE*
    *STARES AT YOUR COPY OF BLOOD AND SALT*

    I AM SUPER JEALOUS OF YOU RIGHT NOW! (PLEASE DON’T TAKE THAT IN A MEAN WAY! LOL) ALSO, FORGIVE ME FOR USING TOO MUCH OF THE CAPS LOCK! THIS HAUL DESERVES TO GET A CAPS LOCK OF ITS OWN!

    *CONTINUES TO STARE AT THE AWESOME HAUL*

  6. I could stare at the pretty photos of your books all day, Hazel. You’ve arranged them so, so gorgeously, and I love it! But seriously, amazing haul! Happy reading ;)

  7. Wow what a haul! Lol. You’ve got so many awesome titles there! I haven’t done my haul yet… I’m lazy… I don’t think I even counted my books? haha but I don’t think it’s quite this many :P Majorly jealous of Truthwitch! Well done! I got Lumberjanes Vol 1 too! I was SO EXCITED. I had been trying to buy it since it came out but my bookstore never had it in. I read it immediately. It’s SO good. Have you read it yet? I went out and bought a Lumberjanes tee to represent us “hardcore lady types” :P

  8. That was massive and insane! But I’m really jealous you got a lot of books and thankful you got a heart of sharing it with us! :)
