Hello, hello friends! I hope you’re having a fantastic Sunday. My husband and I are with our dogs at the beach this weekend celebrating our 8 year wedding anniversary! (It’s actually on Tuesday, the 31st.) I recorded this Shelve It a little earlier in the week to make sure I could stop in to say hello. I’m excited you guys get to see what books I was trucking along with me to Port A. (I do apologize for looking kinda rough. Haha!)
Book I’m Currently Reading:
— Cinder by Marissa Meyer (Goodreads | Amazon): Really enjoying it so far. Love this retelling of Cinderella! Thanks to Tara for convincing me to bypass all the other books in my TBR pile to take a chance on this one!
Received from Simon & Schuster:
From the Library: (E inspired me to go. I have lots (LOTS) of fantasy or dystopian books on my shelves at home and I needed books to break up the genres so they didn’t all feel the same.)
— Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler (Goodreads | Amazon): Our very first post on RBR was a joint book report on Twenty Boy Summer, the only Ockler book I’ve read so far. I’m definitely looking forward to reading about
cupcakes a girl who chases her dreams. (Also check out Sash’s clothing board for Bittersweet!)
— Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott (Goodreads | Amazon | Estelle’s Review): Recommended to me by the one and only Anna. E has read all (I think) of Scott’s work, but I’m kind of a slacker in that department. This will be my first book of hers! Better late than never, right?
— Keep Holding On by Susane Colasanti (Goodreads | Amazon): Another book about bullying. I’m intolerant of bullying seeing as I had a friend who suffered through too much of it in middle school & early high school. I love seeing how things are resolved in the end.
— The Rivals (The Mockingbirds #2) by Daisy Whitney (Goodreads | Amazon): E & I did a book report on The Mockingbirds, the first book in this series. I want some closure to see how things go under Alex’s reign.
— Viola in Reel Life by Adriana Trigiani (Goodreads | Amazon): When I read it takes place in a boarding school, I was sold. Added bonus: she makes a film to document how terrible she thinks the experience will be.
