Shelve It: August 24, 2014

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

Happy Sunday evening!

A good-ish hair day + a pile of books? Time for a Shelve It. (Especially when James was nice enough to go grocery shopping and let me record this only four times. haha) I’ve been sharing most of what I bought lately on our Instagram account so I settled on what I’ve been getting in the mail, and borrowed from others/library. Yay the library! I’m ashamed to say I did not go to the library at all in 2013. I finally got a chance to get my card a few weeks ago, and I plan on making good use of it for the rest of the year and beyond! 🙂

Sidenote: I’m eating cheese right now and it’s wonderful.

Hope you spent the weekend reading something awesome! Enjoy the video below:

Alexa S. - HOORAY FOR THE START OF ME AND YOU! I definitely can’t wait to read that one, as you already know how much I loved Open Road Summer 🙂

Tammy - I own Open Road Summer but haven’t read it, I guess I need to soon.

Leah - The SECOND you read Madame Picasso I want to hear all about it!! So I know next to nothing about art, but for some reason, historical art fiction (I probably just made that up, but we’ll go with it!) has my heart.
A recent one I read (that was only okay so I won’t push it too hard) was I Always Loved You. Still set in Paris, but this one focuses on Degas rather than Picasso.
Safe Keeping sounds like a book I would enjoy – thanks for putting it on my radar! The cover instantly made me think of Lisa Scottoline’s Save Me, but I’m thinking it’s just the red jacket.
