Shelve It: Paperbacks + Amazon Stories (10/5/13)

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

Helloooo, friends! I haven’t done a v-log since Labor Day. That seems crazy to me. Now that I think about it, I must have bought more books but I honestly can’t remember. Beware: I kind of go on a tangent about Amazon in my video today, and talk a lot of nonsense maybe. But it’s fun! And there are some super fun titles I want you to be aware of!

Here ya go:

Oh, right, and the book that EVERYONE in the world is “making” me read: Nowhere but Home by Liza Palmer.

Alexa Y. - I definitely need to read Nowhere But Home! Everyone has been talking up that book so much that I’m VERY intrigued by it. I’m assuming by this point you’ve already read it, yes? I hope you enjoyed it as much as everyone else did.

Ellice - HAHA– they are “making” me read Nowhere But Home too! You know it’s totally against my will of course 😉 The poor mailman probably wonders why I’ve had a scowl on my face every day this week… I’m mad at him because he hasn’t brought me this book yet! 🙂 I can’t wait to read it! It’s so rare that I find an adult fiction book that I enjoy these days, so I’m super excited when somebody recommends one that they LOVED!

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - Oh yeah, I would have been so disappointed if a book I’d pre-ordered from Amazon was so late, and then to top it off, damaged as well. I really enjoy just poking around a bookstore (or library) and picking up books at random.

I’ve heard great things about Jordan Sonnenblick, but I’ve never read any of his books. I should check some of his books out. I know we have a few at my library. I’ve been into male POV books lately.

Anyway, enjoy your new goodies. Happy reading 🙂

Ginger @ GReads! - I have YOU Estelle, to blame (thank?) for my latest book purchase! hehe I will get to it as soon as I finish my latest JEchols book. Wheee!

Lucy - The Jim Henson bio sounds so interesting. Glad you enjoyed it! I definitely like to mix in biographies here and there so I’ll keep it in mind, and maybe pick up the audio.

And I’ve heard such good things about Nowhere but Home! It’s waiting patiently on my kindle to be read. Looking forward to your review.

Have a great week!
