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

Hello! How are you guys doing? Spring has finally arrived in New York, and I’m hoping to spend this Saturday in the sunshine! Yay! Hope you all are doing the same!

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - So many titles I haven’t heard about before! I’d already put Pointe on my wishlist after your rave Goodreads update, but now you’ve got me intrigued about a few others (especially There Will Come a Time). And I look forward to some of the others being read and reviewed by you!

Liz - I’m so glad you loved POINTE as much as I did! I also recently bought NOGGIN and need to read it. I’m really looking forward to eventually picking up a hardcover of SIDE EFFECTS MAY VARY.

And I love your necklace. I need to get something similar for myself.

Alexa S. - I swear, it’s like magic – you recommend something and I immediately know that I want it. I really want to read There Will Come a Time! It sounds incredible. And you already know I have Darcy Lane coming in the mail, and bought Pointe the other day. MORE BOOKS. ALL THE BOOKS.

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - YOU ARE ADORABLE. Seriously. I’m super intrigued by all your five star reads! I love reading amazing book after amazing book — it’s the best! Hope your positive reading binge just keeps going and going 🙂

Stormy - I’m reading The Darkest Minds this weekend–I’ve been hesitant about the book, for some reason, even though it does seem like my kind of book, but I’m really enjoying it!
I’m really curious about This Side of Salvation & Pointe. I am especially in love with the cover for This Side of Salvation. It’s poster-worthy!
And I really hope you enjoy The Art of Wishing–it was one of my most pleasant reading surprises of the year!
