Hello Readers!

It’s been a loooong time since I posted one of these Stacking the Shelves post. But with Book Expo America (BEA15) over and done with, I thought it was the perfect time to bring it back!

Every year I go into Book Expo I go in saying the same thing: I’m going to be selective. I’m not going to get overexcited and grab all the books. And every single year I don’t listen to myself, and I go the wrong way.

And this year was no different.

To kick off my BEA15 recap, I thought it would be fitting and fun to start with the books. While thinking about this recap, I thought about the ways I wanted to highlight and keep track of the BEA books I’m reading. At first I wasn’t sure how to do this. But then I saw, read, and loved Miss Print’s BEA Books recap. I loved it so much so, I told her I was stealing it. And because she’s awesome, and because she’s my BFF she said it was okay. THANKS Emma! You’re awesome, but you already know that!

I also decided to go back to my monthly challenge posts. Honestly, I have no real reason why I fell off.  I think going back to those posts will help keep track of all these BEA15 books. And readers, it’s you’re job to hold me too it!

  • Books in pink are books that I have read and will keep
