Armchair BEA 2013: Wrap-Up

My first Armchair BEA had been a blast! Enough said, so here are my answers for today's questions:

Did you learn something new?

One thing I learned from this Book Blogger Convention is to connect better with fellow bloggers and readers. I am fairly new to this community and I haven’t had the opportunity to interact with them prior to BEA. Read question number 2 for more info.

Did you connect with a new-to-you blogger?

Absolutely! I’m really thankful to have stumbled upon BEA since it helped me a lot to adjust with the Blogging community. You could say I’m a bit of a “wallflower” before this, and I’m really glad to have met new friends from this event!

What was your favorite discussion topic?  

Truth be told, I enjoyed reading and writing about every single topic but Children’s / Young Adult Literature is (arguably) my favorite among all since this blog is centered on Children’s / Young Adult Literature after all! I also enjoyed the Introduction Questions and it was so much fun learning about different bloggers.

Do you have ideas for future years?

Everything on BEA is perfect. I loved every single topic, giveaways (though I didn’t get the chance to join the Instagram contest) and all the Twitter parties and if there’s something I’d suggest, it’d be to have a lot more Twitter parties and giveaways! (And I’ve won two finished copies of my choice from Strange Chemistry! Oh yes!)

I’ve gotten around 1500 estimated page views and a hundred lovely comments from this event. I know it’s not that much, but I want to thank everyone who dropped by! I hoped you enjoyed reading my discussions! And yes, I also hosted an International giveaway and it had 271 entries. Winner will be announced shortly so make sure to stay tuned!

If I’m not too busy for college next year, I might be on Armchair BEA again or maybe on the real live Book Blogger Convention at New York. Who knows? But then again, I might get too busy  but I’m really looking forward to BEA 2014 and even if I won’t have the opportunity to participate next year, I’ll make sure to read every single discussion so I won’t be feeling left out.


  1. Hi there it's me, I am also visiting this website daily, this web page is genuinely pleasant and the visitors are in fact sharing nice thoughts.

  2. I should try to make sure I can participate in Armchair BEA next year-alas I was on vacation and away from my computer so unable to join in on all the fun but your lovely thoughts are already getting me psyched for the next one!

  3. Wow, you have such an amazing blog - I can't believe I hadn't found it before! Following you via GFC & Fab post - thanks for sharing =)
