Shelve It: Estelle Talks End of Summer, Books + More

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

Hi! It’s Labor Day weekend, already! I changed my calendar to September! Where is this year going?

Hope all of you had some fun and/or relaxing plans for this weekend! We’ve been sort of just hanging around and it’s been so nice not have to rush off to do anything so yay for that!

I made a video today talking about the books I’ve gotten in the mail, bought lately, and also so fun other things like the holiday I am most looking forward to. Also is my head just crooked or is it my glasses? I really need to get these adjusted. I keep fixing my head and nothing works.

I should also say (another) happy birthday to Magan on here because she is one of the strongest, most selfless, funny, creative, and talented people I know. I’m so grateful to know her and work on this blog with her. But most of all, she is one of the best people in my life and I am so so appreciative of whatever strange fate-like thing made that happen. THANK YOU UNIVERSE.

Enough about me, on with the show:

Books in the mail:

Jessica Darling’s IT List by Megan McCafferty (September 3) — thanks Little Brown!
New Money by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal (September 10) — thanks St. Martin’s Press!

The Boy on the Porch by Sharon Creech (September 3) — thanks LitLushes!
