November 27, 2012 - 11:46 pm

Kim @ Curious Tales of Modern Lore - Great picks!!! I am trying to branch out of dark and twisted murder stories and experience more light-hearted fiction, so I am definitely looking forward to This is What Happy Looks Like.

November 27, 2012 - 11:20 pm

Addie - After seeing nobody but us, I am going to add it to the top of my reading pile!
Gorgeous blog btw, I love the muted colors – classy!

Daisy @ Between the Pages - Finding more books is ALWAYS the best answer! I’m kinda sad so many series will be ending in 2013 as well…
Going Vintage sounds so good! And you just know that when a girl swears off guys she’s going to fall epicly in love and I’m already smiling thinking of it 😀

November 27, 2012 - 3:17 pm

Bonnie - This is What Happy Looks Like and Reboot look fantastic! So many good ones to look forward to in 2013 this was a tough Top Ten Tuesday. 🙂

November 27, 2012 - 2:47 pm

Mel@Thedailyprophecy - I see some series I really need to read, like Under the never sky and Pandemonium, so I better get started before these pretties are released. Great list!

Great list! 🙂

November 27, 2012 - 12:35 pm

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I absolutely adore the cover of This is What Happy Looks Like – it’s so cute! Plus, the story sounds really sweet, and I love how Jennifer writes.

And Reboot sounds AWESOME. I have heard of it, and it’s on my want to read shelf on GR, but I just wanted to say again that it sounds AMAZING.

The book I hadn’t heard of but is now on my list thanks to your post is Return to Me. The premise sounds so intriguing!

November 27, 2012 - 11:32 am

Tara @ Hobbitsies - Uh, yes to all of these! Literally. ALL OF THEM. I want to read them all so badly, haha! Ugh, we needed to have a top 50 list for this week’s topic, haha! Man, how did I forget to include Reboot? THAT COVER!

November 27, 2012 - 11:28 am

Rachel - Great list! There a bunch on there that I want to read, especially Requiem!! I’m so excited for a new Sarah Dessen book as well. I love that hers comes out just in time for summer. She has the BEST summer reads.

Jamie - Love how our lists are so similar (obvi because we have great taste in books 😛 )…ahhh how did I forget Requiem (like major fail…you know how excited I am) and This Is What Happiness Looks Like??! I fail at liiiiife.

November 27, 2012 - 9:15 am

Cynthia - I’m soooo lame, totally forgot to add This is What Happy Looks Like and Falling for You to my list. I love Lisa Schroeder and really loved Smith’s debut novel too. Can’t wait for these!

Holly - Going Vintage looks really cute! 🙂

November 27, 2012 - 3:40 am

Ashley @ Ashley Loves Books - AGGHHH I want all these too! New Sarah Dessen! New Sara Zarr! New Jennifer E. Smith! Finally continuation for Aria & Perry!

November 27, 2012 - 12:59 am

Jenny @ Mimosa Stimulus - I must have them all!! Really, REALLY want The Moon and More, Reboot, and Through the Ever Night. The waiting! It will kill me! I NEED so many 2013 releases. It is a miracle that I was able to stop at ten for this list.

Howdy, y’all! I’m so excited to have books on my mind. It’s been a crazy weekend of work and I’m so excited to find a cozy blanket so I can finish Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley as soon as I hit publish on this post. Guys, this book. Are you kidding me? Probably one of my favorite […]

November 19, 2012 - 6:37 pm

Brittani - Awesome haul! I got Reached this week as well! I’m glad your enjoying Graffiti Moon. I have it on my Kindle but I still haven’t read it yet. Enjoy all your books!

November 19, 2012 - 5:53 pm

Karen - I’m so glad that you’re loving Graffiti Moon. I was not expecting how amazing that book was.

November 19, 2012 - 2:46 pm

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - The fact that you’re reading Graffiti Moon makes me so extremely happy. I really, really loved that book! And that reminds me that I need to get myself a copy…

November 19, 2012 - 9:54 am

April Books & Wine - Live Through This is utterly amazing and I felt all of the things while reading and actually was so anxious I had to skip ahead and read the ending. Ugh, so so fantastic.

You are in for amazing reading, especially with the books borrowed from Ginger. <33333

November 19, 2012 - 8:30 am

Ginger @ GReads! - So happy to share my books with you Magan! I am also happy to see that you’re enjoying Graffiti Moon. It was one of my faves read last year 🙂

November 19, 2012 - 6:58 am

Leela - I rally want to read Graffity Moon, but it was borrowed in my library :_( I hope you enjoy it. I can’t wait to hear your thought about it 😀

November 18, 2012 - 10:33 pm

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - Eep, you got Reached! I really want to get that one- I am SO curious to see how the trilogy ends, even if I wasn’t the biggest fan of Crossed, or even Matched for that matter. But I feel like this book has a ridiculous amount of potential to be completely amazing, and I can’t wait to read it! Too bad I’m basically broke and my lame-o library won’t get it. :/ Also, I have only heard amazing things about Graffiti Moon! Your Internet staring is scaring me, I think I’ll have to see if I can get my hands on a copy of this one. 😉

Enjoy all your lovelies Magan! <3

November 18, 2012 - 9:48 pm

Ashley @ Ashley Loves Books - I am dyyyyyying to read Night Beach, and mostly because of Ginger! I see her talk about that and Raw Blue so often that I can’t not be curious. Hopefully i can get my hands on copies somewhere!

Also, GRAFFITI MOON <33333 I want to hang out with Ed and Lucy all day every day.

Magan: Shelve It — October 07, 2012

Hi friends! I am sorry Shelve It is late today. No vlog this week because a) I was good and didn’t purchase any books, b) I have to return all of my library books tomorrow, and c) none received from publishers. I’m currently trying to crank through a library book before I have to relinquish […]

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - I’m glad to hear that Perks is a good movie! I want to see it too, but hubby insists on reading the book first, which will likely mean that we wait until it’s out on DVD =P
