Armchair Book Expo: Introduction

It's the N&B introduction to Armchair Book Expo 2017! |

I participated in the Armchair Book Expo for the first time last year, and I had so much fun that I’ve been anticipating the next event ever since! Today’s post is just a quick introduction. Over the next few days, you can expect posts about what readers really want, diversity in books, dining with authors, and even a giveaway. Let’s get started!

  1. I am . . . an avid reader, a musician, and a teacher.
  2. My favorite . . . book so far this year has been The Mysterious Howling by Maryrose Wood.
  3. My least favorite . . . genre is typically fantasy (though there are some notable exceptions).
  4. My current read . . . is the entire Septimus Heap series–I’m on book four out of seven.
  5. My summer plans . . . involve lots of beach time and a trip to Harry Potter World at Universal.

Please leave your Armchair Book Expo links in the comments–I’d love to check them out!

About Monica

I am obsessed with all things books. I'm a music teacher by day and a freelance editor by night.

  • Oh I got to go to Harry Potter World for a day in March and I cried I was SO excited! I embarrassed my little sister and it was all worth it. I hope you have a wonderful time.

  • I love finding new-to-me blogs, like yours, through this event! I will look forward to checking out some of your Newbery reviews. I just had the chance to read a recently reissued honor book (The Winged Girl of Knossos, from 1934) and will be posting a review soon.

    Fantasy is not my first-choice genre, but the Septimus Heap series has been on my to-read list for a long time. I read the first book years ago and loved it, but never picked up the rest. I should do that! I’ve also been reading Newbery books over the past couple of years – the most recent was 1961 Newbery honor book The Cricket in Times Square.

    • I did the same–I read the first Septimus Heap several years ago and only just now started reading the rest of the series. So far so good!

    The Mysterious Howling is on my wishlist. Two posts: Introductions and Best Practices

  • I don’t read fantasy or paranormal. I like historical fiction, women’s fiction, and mystery.

    Nice getting to know you…nice blog.

    ENJOY the rest of this week.

  • Hello Monica! Your blog title caught my eye in the link up for ABE introductions. One of my goals this years is to read more Newbery award/honour books. I’ll look forward to following your posts 🙂
