Magan: Shelve It, November 18, 2012

weekly feature focusing on the books we bought, borrowed, and received from publishers

Howdy, y’all! I’m so excited to have books on my mind. It’s been a crazy weekend of work and I’m so excited to find a cozy blanket so I can finish Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley as soon as I hit publish on this post. Guys, this book. Are you kidding me? Probably one of my favorite reads of the year. I’m not even done and I’m recommending it to everyone (*glaring at you guys through the screen right now*). It’s an absolute must read.

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - The fact that you’re reading Graffiti Moon makes me so extremely happy. I really, really loved that book! And that reminds me that I need to get myself a copy…

April Books & Wine - Live Through This is utterly amazing and I felt all of the things while reading and actually was so anxious I had to skip ahead and read the ending. Ugh, so so fantastic.

You are in for amazing reading, especially with the books borrowed from Ginger. <33333

Ginger @ GReads! - So happy to share my books with you Magan! I am also happy to see that you’re enjoying Graffiti Moon. It was one of my faves read last year 🙂

Leela - I rally want to read Graffity Moon, but it was borrowed in my library :_( I hope you enjoy it. I can’t wait to hear your thought about it 😀

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - Eep, you got Reached! I really want to get that one- I am SO curious to see how the trilogy ends, even if I wasn’t the biggest fan of Crossed, or even Matched for that matter. But I feel like this book has a ridiculous amount of potential to be completely amazing, and I can’t wait to read it! Too bad I’m basically broke and my lame-o library won’t get it. :/ Also, I have only heard amazing things about Graffiti Moon! Your Internet staring is scaring me, I think I’ll have to see if I can get my hands on a copy of this one. 😉

Enjoy all your lovelies Magan! <3

Ashley @ Ashley Loves Books - I am dyyyyyying to read Night Beach, and mostly because of Ginger! I see her talk about that and Raw Blue so often that I can’t not be curious. Hopefully i can get my hands on copies somewhere!

Also, GRAFFITI MOON <33333 I want to hang out with Ed and Lucy all day every day.
