Estelle’s Shelve It >> 2/3/2013

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

I’m pretty sure I did a Shelve It last year on Super Bowl Sunday (which fell on my birthday…) Oh my absolute favorite day in the world. Things are so tremendously different this year: new city, new place to live, an iPhone, my husband’s team is not actually playing tonight, and the half time show that will actually BE sexy. (I do hope Beyonce sings “Bootilicious”… it’s an old favorite.)

Anyway, one thing that remains constant around here are THE BOOKS. Hope you enjoy hearing about these! SORRY! It’s really long but I make a lot of hand gestures and my cat sort of says hi?

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - I got approved for Someday, Someday, Maybe as well – and I’m so excited to read it. I’ve loved Lauren Graham ever since Gilmore Girls, so I hope I love her as an author, too. 🙂

Alexa Y. - I ditched the Super Bowl for Target last night, since I wasn’t particularly rooting for either team. Teehee.

Anyway, I hope you end up liking Unearthly! It really is a great series, and the angel thing is pretty interesting.

And yay, you went with Pepper, such a cute name for her! And I have to deal with Molly trying to knock over my camera each week, too!

Yay for Once Was Lost, I hope you like it. I have one more of Sara’s to read (not including her new release) – How To Save A Life.

HA! I love that you ate the chocolates already 😀 So glad you loved the package and that we’re psychic for sending each other polish + earrings!
