2017 Armchair BEA

I think this is my fourth? year doing Armchair BEA but I skipped last year so I’m a bit rusty. ? If you don’t know, Armchair BEA is a way for those of us who can’t make it to BEA to participate online. It’s really fun, I swear! And you get to meet so many awesome bloggers and discover some cool new blogs. ?

As you’re reading this, I’m probably (if it’s Wednesday the 31st) in New York City for the day to go to a publisher tour and Blogbound so I’ll be late commenting back and replying to comments. I’m not going to BEA though (hence why I’m doing Armchair BEA). ?


I am…

Hi! I’m Emily, but you can call me Emz (if you want, I really don’t care ?). As you can probably tell, I love emojis. Speaking of things I love…

I love…

Reading (duh), sleeping, eating, baking, traveling, and photography. Oh, and of course, blogging. I’m also a big fan of bookstagram (but I hate Instagram’s current algorithm – it’s horrible ?).


I’m an American college student studying business (supply chain management and maybe marketing). I’m on break right now though (no summer sessions for this girl!) so hopefully I can finally get this blog back up and running; I just came back from a two-month hiatus. Which brings me to…

My summer plans…

Include planning enough blog posts ahead of time so I can go to school and blog (unlike last year) and tackling my 20 book summer tbr.

My favorite…

Book is… blah. I can’t choose. (Did you really expect me to?). But to fill the prompt, my favorite band at the moment is All Time Low. Mainly because their new album comes out on Friday and I have all their songs on repeat. If you have any favorite bands in the pop punk/rock genre let me know! I’m always looking for new music to listen to.

  1. Hey Emily! Lovely introduction post! Happy to *meet* you! It looks like we have a lot of the same hobbies and interests! I graduated with a degree in business and marketing, I do photography on the side, and I also love snacks and All Time Low! 🙂

  2. Hi Emily! Planning your blog posts ahead of time for school sounds like a great idea!And good luck with your TBR pile! Mine never seems to stop growing, but that way I’ll never run out of anything to read so guess it’s a good thing. ha!

    • My TBR never seems to stop growing either. Like you said it’s a good thing, but mine is so out of control and disorganized; I just keep adding and never take any off. ?

      Thanks for stopping by Terri! 🙂

  3. I tried to pick one book for my intro, but then the list got to be like my TBR and I had to stop. Have a wonderful Armchair Book Expo week.

    • Oh that’s impressive! I can’t read more than two books at once – I have a horrible plot memory so I always end up getting confused about what happens in each book. ?

      Thanks for stopping by Donna! 🙂

    • Purple is one of my favorite colors too! It’s such a pretty color. I hope you have a great time with Armchair BEA! I always have the years when I’ve participated. 🙂
