Magan: Shelve It (6/17/2012)

weekly feature focusing on the books we bought, borrowed, and received from publishersHappy Sunday, friends! You may have noticed my absence this week on twitter and commenting on your blogs. We’ve been sailing the sea to Alaska to celebrate a big anniversary for my parents! It’s been an amazing week, but I’ve really missed you guys (as you’ll notice in my vlog because I mention it, like, three times).

I’ve gotten a lot (LOT) of reading done this week. I mention a few books in the video below that I finished before Thursday. Since I am writing on my phone, I’m having trouble adding links. I’ll update with links when I’m back at home.

This was taken on Thursday in Ketchikan, Alaska. A little view from our ship is included for ya.

Books Mentioned:

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry (Goodreads)
One Moment by Kristina McBride (Goodreads)
Call the Shots by Don Calame (Goodreads)

Around the blog this week:

– After hearing such high marks, I checked out The Lullaby by Sarah Dessen myself.
– Did you have mandatory summer reading in school? Estelle reminisces about hers.
– Estelle couldn’t wait to rave about From What I Remember…
– Coney Island, a new school, and romance found in Dreamland Social Club by Tara Altebrando.
– Estelle + I found 10 more beach reads to share with you.
– I review Myra McEntire’s Hourglass, sequel to Timepiece.

Ginger @ GReads! - Magan!!! I miss your beautiful face!! Wow, Alaska looks beautiful! and COLD!! haha I’m so glad you’re enjoying your trip. It’s been awfully quiet around here without you, but Estelle has done a fantastic job of keeping things alive! Her and I have definitely been book chatting, haha.

I just requested Pushing the Limits on netgalley, so I hope I get approved soon! This sounds like a book I’d really enjoy.
