Estelle’s Shelve It: 1/6/2013

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

Oh howdy! And happy new year!

Sorry for the lack of v-log tonight, but it’s a busy weekend! Hope you are wrapped up in some good reading, and finding time to relax. Monday begins the first full week in awhile for most of us, I’m guessing? We will need the books to get through! Here’s what’s happening on my bookshelf.

Rather Be Reading Blog Shelve It - 162013

From NetGalley:

15 Days Without a Head by Dave Cousins + Riptide by Lindsey Scheibe are two books I requested from Flux Books, the publisher of Beautiful Music for Ugly Children — a book I absolutely loved from last year. So I have high hopes for these two reads. (Doesn’t Riptide remind you of Blue Crush?)

My Ex From Hell by Tellulah Darling is actually part of a series (not normally my thing, but I didn’t know + I am willing to take the chance with a title like this one.)  Release date for this one is in April.

From used book store shopping:

Man, oh man. Discovered a small used book store near my job and the YA section is so small, I’m shocked I found anything. Especially these.

Sweethearts by Sara Zarr, a book raved about by Magan.

Anatomy of a Boyfriend by Daria Snadowsky, pretty much a miracle that the store had this title. I had just gotten through reading Anatomy of a Single Girl on my way to the book store + there this beauty was. (I gobbled it up in two days.) If you haven’t checked out this author, you really have to. (My review for Single Girl will be live on Wednesday, and it’s out in bookstores on Tuesday!)

All You Never Wanted by the great Adele Griffin. I really really enjoyed reading this one last year, and hey, it was 5 dollars and in perfect condition!

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

Our official happy new year with bookish resolutions!
Review of The Julian Game by Adele Griffin.
Review of Falling For You by Lisa Schroeder.
Review of Being Friends with Boys by Terra Elan McVoy.

Well, that’s it for me! Anything exciting happening with you guys? Hope you have a fantastic week! Thanks again for stopping in!
