Swoony Boys Podcast Episode 27: We Love BEA! (2015 Edition)

Swoony Boys Podcast BEA 2015 Wrap Up Post

After having some time to sleep, rest our feet, and recover we want to talk about why BEA is our favorite time of the year and all the things we go to do this year! Basically this is going to be ALL THE BEA THINGS. Of course we couldn’t do BEA without our favorite twinnies, Jaime and Erin, from Fiction Fare! We had a blast and can’t wait to tell you all the things so grab a drink, sit back, and relive one of our favorite weeks with us!

Podcast Notes

  • We remind you about our previous posts about BEA, including our 2014 BEA Podcast Episode and our Pre-BEA posts filled with fun tips.
  • We kicked things off talking about our favorite books we grabbed at BEA.

After the Red Rain by Barry Lyga, Peter Facinelli, and Rob DeFranco Court of Fives by Kate Elliot  First & Then by Emma Mills  Hello? by Liza Wiemer  Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff  The Immortal Heights by Sherry Thomas  Infinite In Between by Carolyn Mackler  Leading Lines by Chantel Guertin  Passenger by Alexandra Bracken  Queen of Tomorrow by Sherry Ficklin  The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow  Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo  Truly, Madly, Famously by Rebecca Serle  Truthwitch by Susan Dennard  What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler

  • Then we spent some time lamenting the fact that we don’t rule the world and metaphorically wept over the fact that we didn’t get a few books that we really wanted. Even the ones that haven’t been written yet.
  • Next we dished on some of the authors that we were crazy excited to meet/see.
  • We came to the conclusion that Adam Silvera was actually stalking us instead of the the other way around.
  • Then we discussed some of the awesome Publisher and Blogger Events we got to attend. #totalwin
  • We mentioned some of the reasons this BEA was the best ever. Pedicures and napping together were involved.
  • Then we talk about BEA 2016, which has a new location (Chicago) and earlier dates (May 11 – May 13, 2016)!
  • And again, Like every podcast, we have some more thank yous.

  3. My daughter (a blogger) went to BEA and she was so nice about grabbing several books for me: Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between (Jennifer E Smith), Another Day (David Levithan), Nowhere But Here (Katie McGarry), Never Always Sometimes (Adi Alsaid) and Dangerous Deception (Stohl and Garcia). Forget one, our shelves are busting with great ARCs.
