Magan + Estelle’s Shelve It >> 3/3/2013

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

Hi friends! We’re here together this week (but not really together, sigh) for Shelve It, sharing some of the latest books that have popped up at our post office or in our inboxes. It’s kind of a quiet week since Estelle is still on her “book buying ban” so we thought this was the best way to share what we are going to be reading in the near (very near) future!

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend and reading something amazing!


For review:


Beautiful Goodbye by Nancy Runstedier (Ouija Board!)
The Boyfriend App by Katie Sis (4/30 release date)
Severed Heads, Broken Hearts by Robyn Schneider (6/4 release date)
Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike (4/30 release date)
Love Unscripted by Tina Reber (was released in January)


My lovely pal Magan (you may know her) pre-ordered me a copy of Eleanor + Park! I can’t wait to read it after her super positive and touching review!

(This is a green tea latte at the Lucid Cafe, near my post office. We stop there almost every Saturday now. Also — just discovered I can see the Freedom Tower from this very long street near my apartment!)


Things have been a bit slower for me on the bookish side of life as well. Over the last three weeks I’ve purchased the following (with the exception of one of these I received as a gift):


Breathe My Name by R.A. Nelson (purchased from Half Price Books)
The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen (purchased from Half Price Books)
Luna by Julie Anne Peters (purchased for my by Estelle in DC!)
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell (I will continue boasting about this book until you’ve ALL read it!)
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell (But, of course. I loved Attachments & need to read everything by Rainbow.)

For review:

And oh, what are those adorable little stackable hedgehogs? A bride of mine gifted these adorable measuring cups to me last weekend. We’ve all fallen in love with Snarkles of Epic Reads so I thought you might enjoy seeing these. I collect measuring cups and bowls so as a thank you, this amazing bride of mine (shout out to Betty!) gifted me these. Love, love, love them! (You can find the Measuring Hedgies here.)

Alexa Y. - I love the hedgehog measuring cups! I probably would display them instead of using them, because they’re too cute!

Also, awesome book hauls girls! Eleanor & Park is probably my favorite thing that you both got this week 😉
