Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I am exploding with happiness over your Shelve It this week. There is just TOO MUCH goodness for me to handle!

1. SHIVER – Oh, how I love Maggie. She’s one of my favorite authors EVER, because I find her writing lyrical and beautiful and different from most authors I read. Love this book (though I’m not as big a fan of the two that come after it!)

2. GRAFFITI MOON – It’s a must read. Seriously. I read it in less than a day, and read it again, and I loved it. I don’t have my own actual copy (I read it through NetGalley), but I’m definitely planning on getting it.

3. CIRCLE OF MAGIC – YES. This is SO GOOD. I LOVE this series. It’s Macky’s favorite series, out of all of Tamora’s series, so that definitely says a lot, don’t you think?

4. STAT – Love. This is such a cute book.

I have yet to read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, but I swear I’m going to do that soon!!

You look great by the way, and the glasses are fab 🙂

Lena - LOOOVE your new glasses. It totally makes your bright blue eyes stand out.

You are going to love, love, love Graffiti Moon. I wish I could hug it. I mean, umm…yeah, that’s what I meant.

LOVE YOU!

April Books & Wine - Ahhhh. There is so much winning involved here. Like okay, I love me some Shiver and Tamora Pierce and The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. And Graffiti Moon.

Sigh. SO MUCH GOOD TASTE I LOVE IT!
