VeganYANerds - Great vlog, Estelle!

I keep seeing Susane Colasanti’s name everywhere and I’d like to try a book by her.

I really hope you love the Book Thief, it’s a beautiful and sad story.

We are all such bad influences with books, every time I read a blog post I add another couple of books to my list. We will be reading forever!

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - Yay! I love vlogs! It was so fun to see Magan last week, and now you!! I know what you mean about being in a book slump. I had to force myself through the last two books I read. I’m hoping to pull myself out of it ASAP. We had a blizzard all weekend, which is awesome reading weather… and I failed. Lame!

Austenland is actually the first book I ever reviewed. Ever. It was my first post on The Broke and The Bookish like… a year and a half ago. Haha. I had to have it be my first post on That Artsy Reader Girl because I’m nostalgic like that. I really loved it! I hope you do too. 🙂 And what a good deal! Beauty Queens has caught my eye several times, so I need to try that one out. And I’m scared to read That Princess Diaries because I hear the movie is so much better. What do you think? And I love that you have show posters on your wall! I swear, that just screams to me that you’re a New Yorker. 😛

Well, it was so fun seeing your lovely face tonight! I’ll have to do a vlog as soon as I have something worth talking about. 😛

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - Congratulations on your first vlog! 🙂

I’ve read Austenland, and I thought it was pretty cute. I’m curious to read the next book, Midnight in Austenland! And I’ve also read Beauty Queens, which I thought was pretty entertaining because I didn’t totally take it seriously, lol.

I’ve been meaning to read The Book Thief as well. The book is staring at me right now from my book pile, so hopefully I get around to it soon.

On a totally unrelated note – I LOVE the prints/posters framed on your wall. Wicked is one of my favorite all time musicals.

And one last unrelated note – I can’t wait till we meet in person! 😀
