Estelle’s Shelve It: 1/6/2013

weekly feature focusing on the books we bought, borrowed, and received from publishers

Oh howdy! And happy new year!

Sorry for the lack of v-log tonight, but it’s a busy weekend! Hope you are wrapped up in some good reading, and finding time to relax. Monday begins the first full week in awhile for most of us, I’m guessing? We will need the books to get through! Here’s what’s happening on my bookshelf.

Rather Be Reading Blog Shelve It - 162013

From NetGalley:

15 Days Without a Head by Dave Cousins + Riptide by Lindsey Scheibe are two books I requested from Flux Books, the publisher of Beautiful Music for Ugly Children — a book I absolutely loved from last year. So I have high hopes for these two reads. (Doesn’t Riptide remind you of Blue Crush?)

My Ex From Hell by Tellulah Darling is actually part of a series (not normally my thing, but I didn’t know + I am willing to take the chance with a title like this one.)  Release date for this one is in April.

From used book store shopping:

Man, oh man. Discovered a small used book store near my job and the YA section is so small, I’m shocked I found anything. Especially these.

Sweethearts by Sara Zarr, a book raved about by Magan.

Anatomy of a Boyfriend by Daria Snadowsky, pretty much a miracle that the store had this title. I had just gotten through reading Anatomy of a Single Girl on my way to the book store + there this beauty was. (I gobbled it up in two days.) If you haven’t checked out this author, you really have to. (My review for Single Girl will be live on Wednesday, and it’s out in bookstores on Tuesday!)

All You Never Wanted by the great Adele Griffin. I really really enjoyed reading this one last year, and hey, it was 5 dollars and in perfect condition!

And in case you missed it on the blog this week:

Our official happy new year with bookish resolutions!
Review of The Julian Game by Adele Griffin.
Review of Falling For You by Lisa Schroeder.
Review of Being Friends with Boys by Terra Elan McVoy.

Well, that’s it for me! Anything exciting happening with you guys? Hope you have a fantastic week! Thanks again for stopping in!

The end.

VeganYANerds - Nice haul! I got Riptide, too! It made me think of Raw Blue but now that you mention it, Blue Crush as well!

And I hope you LOVE Sweethearts, it’s wonderful 😀

The Bumble Girl - The Fifteen Days Without a Head sounds heartbreaking! I was just approved for this one too – the whole “little brother who’s convinced is a dog” tugged at my heart, these poor boys! I am looking forward to sitting with a box of tissues for this story…
Enjoy your new reads 🙂
And happy new year to you both! xo

Tara - GAH Sweethearts! That has been on my radar for ages and I have yet to actually read it.

Hope you get to relax a little bit this weekend 🙂

Lisa the Nerd - Yay for a used bookstore! Even if the YA section was teeny.

Amy @ Tripping Over Books - Great books, Estelle! It’s awesome that you have a used book store to plunder, even if the YA section is small. I don’t have anything like that in my neck of the woods. I’m definitely going to have to check out Anatomy of a Single Girl, though. It sounds awesome! And I can’t wait to see what you think of Sweethearts!! Good stuff, friend!

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - Ugh, back to school this week! Although, I do have Monday off, since it’s a Teacher Workday or something. But seriously, it’s been luxurious not having any stress of grades or anything. Whatever the case, I’ll be spending Monday making the most of my time off to blog!! I’m hoping that if I get everything scheduled ahead of time, I’ll have plenty of time to comment and such.

Anyways, you got some good stuff this week, Estelle! Riptide looks really interesting, I think that one is going on my TBR list. I’m excited to read your review of that one, to know if I really should get a copy of it or not. And YAY for discovering a used book store, even if the YA section is small. It seems like you were still able to find some goodies, though! I seriously need to pick up All You Never Wanted, since I’ve seen some seriously gushing reviews.

Fantastic haul, Estelle! Enjoy your lovelies, and GOOD LUCK for a full week back at work! <3 Just remember that working is feeding your book addiction. 😉
