Magan: Shelve It — April 7, 2013

weekly feature to share the books magan and estelle are adding to their bookshelves each weekHey, hey friends! Happy Sunday! Thanks for stopping by for today’s Shelve It! It’s been a while since I’ve splurged on books. Have you seen all the amazing deals for the kindle and nook? Holy moly — so many good books are half off or cheaper right now. Take advantage of this, guys! Estelle and I definitely have.

Since all my books are for my kindle, no vlog for this Shelve It. I’m pretty sure that would be boring with nothing to physically show you. (Right?)

Books Purchased for my Kindle:

kindle book cheap purchases

Just for Now by Abbi Glines — $0.99 — (Goodreads | Amazon)
Being Friends With Boys by Terra Elan McVoy — $2.99 — (Goodreads | Amazon | Estelle’s Review)
Going Bovine by Libba Bray — $3.99 — (Goodreads | Amazon)

(I believe the Amazon sales last through the end of April. The 50% off sale at Barnes and Noble only lasts through this weekend. Please note that I think Amazon has decided to match the prices on the B&N sales.)

Once Was Lost Renamed to What We Lost

I also purchased What We Lost by Sara Zarr. (Goodreads | Amazon) It was originally titled Once Was Lost, but it received a shiny new cover and a new title. What are your thoughts? I love both covers, actually, but do admit the new one is a bit more eye-catching. This is my only Zarr book left to read, guys. Ahhh!

VeganYANerds - Ooh, I hope Going Bovine is good, I have liked the last couple of Libba’s books that I’ve read!

Leah @ The Pretty Good Gatsby - You know what, I actually really like the redesign! I’m usually pretty indifferent toward them (at best), but this one is simply lovely. I think it’s the font that does it for me.

HA! Thank you for reminding me that I really need to write my review for You Look Different.. I read it last month and while it definitely wasn’t bad, it was pretty bland and not very memorable. It made for an enjoyable afternoon read though. Hopefully you’ll like it a bit more than I did!

While I absolutely adore my local library, I’m WEEPING over their complete lack of Jennifer Echols! NOT A SINGLE BOOK. I’ve only heard the highest of praises in regards to her book and now it’s looking as though I’m going to have to dive in & buy them. I need to find out what I’m missing!

Dana - Awesome haul. I won’t be buying anything for a while because my review backlog is insane but I’ll be adding to my Goodreads TBR list for sure! Hope you enjoy all your books!

Ginger @ GReads! - I’ve tried to read Abbi Glines and just couldn’t do it. I’ll be curious if you feel the same or end up liking her stuff. Yay Sara Zarr! I know how much you love her πŸ™‚

Alexa Y. - I stopped myself after I bought three books off the Amazon sale (although I’m fairly certain I’m buying more soon). I got Being Friends with Boys as well, yay!

Bookworm1858 - Awesome haul-I am looking forward to reading most of these too especially You Look Different in Real Life. Not sure about the redesign for Once Was Lost as I really liked the original.

April 7, 2013 - 9:43 pm

Amanda @ MarvelousCatoReviews - I actually bought Going Bovine recently, as well! I have been dying to read it, so I’m excited to finally have it in my collection.

April 7, 2013 - 4:30 pm

Laura @ the Booksmartie - Oh, I love all These contemporaries here – haven’t read one in a while πŸ™‚ Also, I like both covers for Sarah Zarr’s books, but I prefer the orig!inal title…it was more Special, I think

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Awwww, but it’s always lovely to see your pretty face in your vlog, books or no books πŸ™‚
