Estelle’s Shelve It from 4/20/2013

weekly feature to share the books magan and estelle are adding to their bookshelves each week

Yes. You read that right! There’s actually a Shelve It + IT’S A V-LOG. Your eyes are not playing tricks on you! Sorry about the lack of these lately but between my Lent “break” from buying books, the eBooks I’ve been purchasing (which are no fun to show to you in a video), and this silly cold that will not go away — I haven’t had a chance. But here I am!!

I do cough in this video (sorry to ruin the suspense for you), and I’m going to apologize for the 20th time about that. Also, I totally blanked on the word “companion”. See if you can find that spot. I will send you a cookie.

(I should also mention a huge thanks to Ginger for providing my necklace in this video! It’s been such a great accessory and goes with so much that I own!)

Thank you so much to Harlequin Teen for the lovely goodies!

The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa (May 2013)

Alexa Y. - That party was a lot of fun even though I was really nervous! It was definitely nice to catch up with blogger friends though, and to eat at LT Burger afterwards 😉 We need to eat there again and soon!

Ginger @ GReads! - Look at that necklace!! hehe 😉 Estelle, I am proud of you for branching out to more paranormal. You know how much I love contemps, so I tend to be very picky with the paranormals I read, too. Hit me up for rec’s anytime! I hope your cold goes away soon deary. Loved SEEING you though, xoxo.

April Books & Wine - Ah, I wish I was going to read after leaving you a lovely comment, but alas, I have to sit at a health fair from like 10:30-2 p.m. Sigh.

Anyways, I loved your story about getting invested in Harlequin novels while on road trips with your mom. That’s so funny, but awesome too. And yay reading and yay parents reading. My mom and my grandma are total Harlequin readers too.

Man, that disney guidebook makes me want to go back, but alas, I cannot afford a vacation right now and refuse to take one until I’ve paid down my car. Sigh.

AND.

That party you mentioned sounds great — how cool that you got the opportunity to go! 😀

Happy reading!

Rebecca @ Reading Wishes - I’m a contemporary girl at heart too so I get where your coming from. Before I started blogging, it’s the only genre I used to read. But now, I can be found reading some paranormal and from time to time, the occasional sci-fi and dystopian. How come this is the first I’m hearing about Heartbeat! *runs to check out* Oh, that would probably be due to it not being on Goodreads yet! It sounds amazing though and super intense. Bloom is my favourite book of Elizabeth’s also 🙂 Have fun reading!

Sarah O - First of all, LOVE Elizabeth Scott. I’ve actually only read her four less intense contemporary books but I love them. I reread them a few months ago and I realized that Bloom is definitely my favourite, which I didn’t pick up on the first time around. She is the queen of writing misunderstandings where you totally understand both sides so it makes her MCs slightly frustrating but you still love them.

So I’ve read The Immortal Rules and I wasn’t a huge fan to be honest. I definitely wouldn’t buy the sequel but I might read it if I could borrow it. I remember it was around 400 pages and not enough of those were interesting to me to enjoy it overall. I do know that some people liked it, but it wasn’t for me. And even though contemporary is my favourite I read a lot of other genres.

So yes, so jealous of Heartbeat. I’ll definitely be picking that up!
