Estelle: Shelve It 6/24/2012

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

With birthdays, graduations, and the release of Pixar’s Brave… we were a little busy this weekend. Forgive me for the lack of vlog but I’m sort of pooped despite the “relaxing” weekend. 🙂

Hope all of you had a great week and a super Sunday!

I took out half the library this week. And they allowed me to even though I had to pay a fine (6 bucks) for late books and entered the library with my crazy hair. Oh wait. My husband took a picture of that.

So here’s a better look at what I borrowed:

Saving Ruth by Zoe Fishman (Goodreads)
Take Me There by Carolee Dean (Goodreads)
Shelter by Frances Greenslade (Goodreads)
The Summer of Firsts and Lasts by Terra Elan McVoy (Goodreads)
The President’s Daughter by Ellen Emerson White (Goodreads)
Belles by Jen Calonita (Goodreads)
Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles (Goodreads)
Awaken by Kate Kacvinsky (Goodreads)
Audrey, Wait by Robin Benway (Goodreads)
The Karma Club by Jessica Brody (Goodreads)

Two of these are from my Big Kids’ Table feature (Saving Ruth & Shelter) but others are because of fellow blogger reviews:

> Tara of Fiction Folio looks at Belles by Jen Calonita.
> Mandee from VeganYANerds mentioned Take Me There in her vlog from June 10th.
> April from Good Books and Good Wine listed The Karma Club AND Audrey, Wait in her summer reading suggestions a few weeks ago. (Then Ginger seconded reading Audrey, Wait.)

Thanks to these lovely ladies for helped me to discover the above titles!

On the blog this week:

– I read Such a Rush last week and I can’t say enough fantastic things about it.
– A bonus review of A Long Way From You by Gwendolyn Heasley set in NYC!
– Magan raves about Something Like Normal by Trish Doller. Have you read it yet?
I’ll Be There by Holly Goldberg Sloan has heart, suspense, and some amazing characters.

Thanks for checking in! Have a great week!

April Books & Wine - YESSSS library books and Audrey Wait and The Karma Club and reading books for fun and pleasure not because you feel obligated to review.

I am in love with this Shelve It.

Paige - I read Audrey Wait back when I went to the library everyday because I looked for it everywhere and then finally found it at my library. It was actually pretty good =) I hope you enjoy everything and here’s my IMM!
