VeganYANerds - I really want to read Send, it sounds like a great read and I’ve added The Lost Summer to my tbr list, thanks!

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - You got some good stuff Estelle! I really need to pick up The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It’s becoming a movie, yet I STILL haven’t read it! This needs to be fixed soon. 😉

Enjoy all your books Estelle! <3

elena - I read Perks AGES ago but don’t really remember much about it, besides the often quote lines. I should re-read before the film too. Also hooray for having Monday off and another happy birthday to Magan too. 🙂

Happy Reading!

April Books & Wine - What a weird/awesome coincidence that you got Cleopatra’s Moon! I just started listening to that yesterday while cleaning the computer/clothes/bookshelf room. 🙂 I hope you enjoy it as much as I am (hint: that means I hope you enjoy it A LOT).

Happy reading Estelle! 😀
