So let's start this ball rolling, shall we? This are the highlights from BEA day 1:
  1. Exhaustion like no other. My feet, my arms, my back, my eyes, my fingernails... everything hurt to an extent by the end of the day. Me and my roommates woke up at 5 am and got to the Javits around 6am. The Javits was as always beautiful, not a long line at that point but there was about 5-6 people in front of our group. Here are some pictures:

    The Penguin Truck!!
    The infamous LINE.
    The Javits is a GREAT place to host BEA at. BEA will be at NY until 2016 when it shall supposedly move to Chicago, a trip I would be more than willing to make. There is just no other experience quite like it.
  2. Authors, authors, authors... Of course, what is BEA without the authors? Here are some of the author/book highlights of the day!

    Elizabeth Scott (Heartbeat), Julie Kagawa (The Iron Fey series + The Immortal Rules),
    Katie McGarry (Pushing The Limits), and Amanda Sun (Ink)
    Amanda Sun, author of INK an amazing series about paper gods, kendo clubs, and sizzling Japanese style romance. 
    Katie McGarry, my own personal  contemporary goddess, author of Pushing the Limits and Dare You To.
    Diana Peterfreund, author of For Darkness Shows the Stars, signing Across a Star Swept Sea.
    Lauren Kate, signing her new book Teardrop!
    James Dashner, author of The Eye of Minds.
    And those are just SOME of the highlights! There were a lot of other great authors, but most of the time I was too star struck to remember to take pictures!! 
  3. BEA Bloggers! The best part of BEA, even better than the books, or seeing the authors, or meeting your online connections in the industry, was getting to hang out with my fellow bloggers and friends. Without them, well, the trip would have still been good because of the amazing books, but it would have been dry. Here are some of the greatest people you will ever meet:

    Me on the left, Lexie from Poisoned Rationality to the right.
    Tegan (Lexie's little sister) from Poisoned Rationality, and Briana @BAM Book Reviews.
    Hannah, from The Irish Banana, to the right.
    Haley, from Booking it with Haley G. First year at BEA, first time I've met her!
    Ashley Evans @Nose Graze and Eileen @Singing and Reading in the Rain
    Nicole from Paperback Princess. She was really excited!
    Chaz, my dear friend who attended BEA with me this year. He blogs right here @Bloody Bookaholic.
  4. BEA has improved a lot from previous years. The lines were way more organized, maybe due to the increased amount of volunteers they had this year. The volunteers themselves were very nice people who did their work as good as they possibly could. There was a good amount of chaos as well, but no such hazling like previous years :D

End of the day total amount of books: 36. It was a great first day, and this was the most amount of books I got in one day. The rest of the days were not more mellow, but I definitely had a bit of time between signings to relax for a bit and make lines early.

Stay tuned for recaps for days 2 and 3, not to mention the post-BEA Barnes and Noble event with authors Richelle Mead, Sarah Dessen, Rick Yancey, Marie Lu, and Andrea Cremer.
