Shelve It: Back from Texas (8/11/2013)

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

Your eyes are not playing tricks on you! I actually did one of these!! I did!

This summer was been so busy, friends. I’m sure you can relate. And because I hate to look like a total crazy woman in these v-logs, it’s sometimes hard to prep. But here I am! With some fresh reads, buys, and a recommendation!

It’s all so exciting, really.

P.S. My air conditioner does not make good company during vlogs like Magan does. Sadface.

Books I got in the mail:

The Truth by Michael Palin (Thanks St. Martins Press!) release date 8/13/2013

Just Between Us by J.H. Trumble (Thanks JH!) release date 9/24/2013

Books I bought at BookPeople in Austin:

Better Nate than Never by  Tim Federele

The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May and June by Robin Benway

The Space Between Trees by Katie Williams

Summer of the Gypsy Moths by Sara Pennypacker

Highly recommended + just finished:

Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler

And in case you missed it… on the blog this week:

Estelle reviews The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider

J.H. Trumble - Hey, guys! Just FYI, I spoke to my editor. JUST BETWEEN US, sadly, won’t be available on NetGalley 🙁 But if anyone needs a review copy, let me know.

Lucy @ The Reading Date - You got Just Between Us? Ahh! I’ve been hoping to see that one pop up on Netgalley. Better Late Than Ever looks great too.
Enjoy your books!

elena - I really hope you like Better Nate Than Ever! it seems like a v Estelle book. most of the Broadway references flew over my head (I bet it wouldn’t for you!) but it was a fun book and I’m excited for the sequel.

Jamie - Curious about that Robin Benway book! You know I’ve loved her others so let me know what you think! I NEED to read Fixing Delilah! Perhaps a library trip shall happen..particularly because I have overdue library books..so more than likely if it’s there!

Sara (of The Page Sage) - Yay, go Robin Benway’s books! Love Extraordinary Secrets. 🙂 (And I won’t throw any tomatoes at the screen, since AKA is really great.)

J.H. Trumble - You were in Austin! Is that where Magan lives?

I’m doing a release party thingy there at Bookwoman with a couple of other writer friends on September 29. Maybe you could come back! 🙂
