Introductory BEA post

Hey! Thanks for stopping by my BEA booth blog post!

I'm Caitlin, I'm 21 and I'm just about to graduate!! I live in the North of England and I've been blogging for about 3 months now. I mostly blog about paranormal YA, but also some contemp YA and UF/PNR adult books too. Basically, if there's a vamp/werewolf/witch involved, I'm there.

I will be particpating mostly from my bed (on my laptop, ah home comforts!) but also from the university library, as I have exams this week and therefore am supposed to be revising *coughs*

I'm most looking forward to getting to meet lots of new bloggers, but also Tuesday's posts where I will get to see what everyone's favourite books of this year are so far-and what books being featured at BEA they hope to enjoy-I'm looking forward to getting some excellent new recommendations!!

I thought I'd include my Sunday Summary today, so hopefully you can learn a bit more about me book-wise if you'd like too!
This week I received...
Books in the post:

The Poison Diaries by Maryrose Wood (thanks to V over at ComaCalm's Corner for this one!!)
Born at Midnight by C.C Hunter
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

Received for review:

Starcrossed: Perigee by Tracey Lee Cambell. Tracey emailed me about reviewing her book and it sounded so unique and awesome I couldn't say no! Plus that cover is just beautiful. Read more about this book here

Wildefire by Karsten Knight. I got this from the S&S galleygrab and I'm so excited to read it! Learn more about this book here

This week I reviewed:

Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon
Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm looking forward to visiting you all, so please leave your link in the comments!!!

**A few bloggers and I decided to create an informal chat on twitter, for those who wanted to discuss blogging technique, tips and tricks and to ask any questions they might have! Feel free to join in using the twitter hashtag #bookbloghelp**


  1. I'll also--probably--be blogging from bed for the week. xD Oh the joys of having a laptop! I still hope that you'll love Wildefire and I can't wait to see more of your Armchair BEA posts! You can see my introduction post over here if you'd like. :)

  2. I'm blogging from my couch this week. I'm going to be talking a bit on Thursday about our Twitter chats (I think networking is the topic that day). I have a new vampire book if you are interested. I can hook you up with a free ebook. It's called Remdemption and is by Lindsey Gray.

  3. Oops. I forgot the tip you gave me last night in our chat. Here's the link to my blog (I don't know how to make it a clickable link though).

  4. I wish I could be blogging from my bed, my laptop is kaput. Hope you have fun during Armchair BEA! :)

  5. Hi Cait!

    I would love to blog from my bed but unfortunately I have to go to work :(. I will definitely have to meet you at BEA next year. I am also excited to read Wildefire and can't wait to see what you think of Born at Midnight I havne't read it yet.

    Look what I learned:


  6. Cait -- Fabu intro -- good luck with exams (yuck!) It's so inconvenient when real life gets in the way of book blog life! ;)

    Looking forward to the rest of your Armchair BEA posts and interviewing you!

  7. Nice to meet you, Cait! Well, even though I've been reading your blog for a few days, now, but now it's official. :)

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy reading Wildefire! I got it from Netgalley, but I have a bunch of other books I have to read before I can get to it. :(

  8. I love your blog! I just wanted to let you know that, and also, I'm your newest follower. I like your new Twitter hashtag, I will be following it.

  9. Your blog is very nice. I am blogging from the comforts of my bed. Visited over 100 blogs today, so I think I've set a new record. It's been great meeting new people and seeing the variety of blogs and design and content. Just great. Nice to find your blog, I added you to the list of blogs I follow, hope to stay connected.

  10. Heya! Nice to "meet" you! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm not following yours! :)

  11. I think i might start intercepting your postman, he seems to bring better things than mine (junk mail and bills).

  12. Good luck on your exams! Hope they don't get in the way of all the Armchair BEA fun! ;)

  13. Great to meet you, Cait!

    Good luck with your exams.

    :) Heidi

  14. I'll be blogging from my bed to!

    thanks for stopping by my blog, Its really nice meeting you :)

  15. I have a couch with one special place (with a me-sized butt print) that I plan on living in this week for the Armchair BEA! I may try out the bed thing though. :)

  16. Good luck with exams! Bed BEA beats out armchair BEA every day :)

    I hope you love Wildefire. I love that S&S put it up on GalleyGrab!

  17. Ooh, so wish I'd taken part in this! It looks awesome!
    And so are your books! Amazing, amazing books!
    Happy reading and blogging! :)
