ABEA: Wrap Up

Today I'm posting my ABEA wrap up for the 2016 Armchair BEA event. It has been a blast! | NewberyandBeyond.com

I have had so much fun participating in my very first Armchair BEA event! Today, sadly the last day of the event, I’m posting my ABEA wrap up.

Over the past few days, I’ve become more active on Instagram than I ever have been (let’s hope I can stick to that trend–I’ve really enjoyed posting more book pictures and seeing other people’s gorgeous posts); written about myself and my blogaesthetics, fictional worlds, and going beyond the books; met some new book blogger friends; and even won a couple prizes. All the while, the Armchair BEA blog has been posting interesting discussion posts and sneak peeks of BEA itself.

I’ve loved reading everyone else’s thoughts on the week’s topics, and I enjoyed the challenge of posting every day (something I haven’t done since last year’s Write 31 Days challenge). I wasn’t able to participate in any Twitter chats, but I hope to do so next year. Basically, I’ve liked everything about my first ABEA experience, and I hope you enjoyed reading along!

One day I’ll make it to the actual BEA conference, but until then, ABEA is a welcome substitute. Thanks to all who made it happen!

What was your experience with ABEA this year? Leave a link to your ABEA wrap up in the comments; I’d love to check it out.
