This is Me <3 {Armchair BEA}

I really…I mean REALLY…wanted to go to BEA this year. Unfortunately, my hubby (and my wallet) decided this was not my year. *crying softly into my keyboard*

Then one day, while mindlessly surfing the internet, I happened across what promises to be the seconded best thing to actually being at BEA – ArmChair BEA!!! I am really excited to be participating in this event.

So let’s get the ball rolling with some introductions….

We here at Reviewing Wonderland hail from the great state of Michigan!
Where we can get all four seasons – within the same week.

We are new to the blogosphere….just started in January 2013.

When we found out that BEA 2013 was not going to be an option for us and it seemed like the rest of the WORLD was going to be there enjoying the company of our favorite authors and getting the ARC’s that we are coveting.

Then we found Armchair BEA!

Our favorite book read so far in 2013 would go, hands down, to Victoria H. Smiths, The Space Between.
You can check out our five-star review of this book HERE.

The Space Between

One of our favorite things about blogging is meeting all of the wonderful bookish people around the world. And this year, we have joined forces with some of our favorite bloggers to co-host the first annual Summer Lovin’ Read-a-Thon. Our besties in blogging are…

So that’s all about us – what about you?

  4. Welcome to Armchair BEA! Happy first year! We’re all BEA envious here, so you’re among friends who have also sobbed onto their keyboards when we realized that this wasn’t our year to trek to NY also. I haven’t read The Space Between, but I’ll have to check it out! Good luck with the rest of your Armchair BEA experience.

    Well hello there from another Midwestern gal ;) I’m from Wisconsin. I’ve never been to the actual BEA but I’d probably cut off my right arm to do so. Thank goodness for Armchair BEA!

    Pssst: I love gif posts so much!

      Me too! I love seeing them on other people’s blogs so I thought I would try it out. I like the way it came out. Shows off more of my personality. :-)

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh I so don’t miss all the crazy weather, from Ohio. Icky! I’m happy we’re both doing ArmChair BEA, it makes me feel less bitter about not going to BEA this year. :)

    Loved your gifs, they were fun! Armchair BEA rocks, no sore feet from standing and no sore arms from hauling all those books! LOL

  12. Hi Meagan! OMG You started blogging this January??? WOW! You’re doing great then. I started in October of 2011, it feels like so long ago!

    I totally agree with you on the best bookish thing ever: meeting other book nerds! I love you guys! <3 We never would have met if it weren't for our bookish ways, so YAY!

    Love the Summer Lovin Read-a-thon. I rushed over and signed up.

    • Meagan says:

      Yay! We have so much fun stuff planned for the read-a-Thon. And it’s Grease themed – you can’t go wrong with that!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Great post! I’m participated in the Summer Lovin’ Read-a-thon so I’m really excited for that! I’m from Texas, so I definitely understand the “all-seasons-in-one week”(sometimes it’s one day!). It makes it quite difficult to know how to dress, doesn’t it?

    • Meagan says:

      Hi Stormy! Great to meet a fellow blogger! And yay for Summer Lovin’ 2013!!

      I’ve just resigned myself to layering. That way I can add and remove clothing as needed throughout the day. :-)

  15. Meaghan says:

    I’ve never been able to go to BEA, so I suppose I don’t really know what I’m missing. It sounds just heavenly though!

    • Meagan says:

      It took me a long time to get over this feeling. I was so bummed out that I couldn’t go to BEA this year. And reading all of the twitter posts from those who were going is just torturous.

      I’m glad I was able to find other bloggers who couldn’t go and I’m excited to participate in the Armchair BEA for the first time!

  17. Yay so awesome to meet another fellow blogger who started blogging this year :D *hi-fives* and you used one of my favourite .gifs of Daniel Radcliffe. Okay, you’re awesome :D
