Feature & Follow Friday! (#16)

*Fun blog hop feature hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read*

I'm incredibly excited to have my blog featured this week -- like I'm freaking out!! This is awesome! ANYWAYS, welcome and don't forget to leave your link in a comment so I'll be able to follow you back!

Q: We are about to see a lot of posts & tweets about reader conventions, RT, BEA, ALA and many more are starting soon. Which one would you love to attend and why?

First off I'd like to say I've never really heard of any of those reader conventions until now and I must admit I really would love to go to one! After thorough research I think it'd be amazing to attend BEA which I now know as Book Expo of America! The list of authors that are going to be there are completely awesome!! I'd be thrilled to see all the new upcoming titles, and it would be a dream to be able to go and get books signed by a ton of talented writers all in one location! I'm actually super jealous of all the attendees because I SO want to be them and peek at the new gorgeous books releasing soon, network my blog, meet other inspiring bloggers, and learn helpful tips as well as grab some fantastic reads!
 
What reader conventions are you most looking forward to or wish you could attend? Leave a comment below!

    1. I've always wanted to go to San Diego Comic Con!!! Every year I get so sad that I can't go, I think it'd be one of the best experiences with not only a combination of books but films as well. I'd die to meet some of the actors that attend :P Right! I'd be in heaven with that stuff! I'm suffering right now because Philly Comicon is right around the corner and I can't go!! I live a couple hours away :(
