Attention, Attention: Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe

Hello again! Remember this feature? Well, it’s making its 2013 debut! And today I must talk to you about: welcome, caller, this is chloe. To this day, I still remember reading Magan’s review of this debut novel from last April. (That’s saying something because I’ve read quite a few.) She was so unbelievably upbeat about the […]

Jamie - I really think I’ll like this one!Definitely going to pick up for when I need a fun book! And what a cool job she has!

Alexa Y. - This book was incredibly cute! I remember liking it, especially the fact that Chloe had to work at the school radio station. I think it’s awesome that she ended up with her own show 😉

elena - you guys were definitely the reason why i read this book! gosh it made me really want mexican food.

Mary @ My Sisters Bookshelf - Loved this one! I reviewed it too!

But it was also like the fourth book in a row that I read with a red-headed protagonist. I want someone to analyze this. The proportion of red-heads in young adult literature is way out of whack. My sister loves this (as a redhead). I love Anne of Green Gables, but I think we need some mousy brown heroines too. It’s like people have red hair so we know they are quirky?

Estelle: Shelve It (7/22/2012)

And it’s Sunday again! Funny how that happens! How has your weekend gone? Hopefully relaxing and productive! We’ve been hosting a garage sale for the past few days… and you know… some interesting people go to garage sales. Some good, some bad. Has anyone written a book about this? It could be a best seller!

April Books & Wine - I say this on every Shelve It, but I love your love of the library.

Also I die of jealous over the Books Of Wonder event, for sure.

Asheley (@BookwormAsheley) - OOH! I’m halfway thru Miracle by Elizabeth Scott AS WE SPEAK. I’m about to finish it in a little bit.

I just read This Is Not A Test a few days ago and my post went up. I think I just gushed about how much I loved it. It was my first Courtney Summers book, so yesterday I read Fall For Anything.

I’m rambling. You’re talking about some great books there, missy!

July 24, 2012 - 12:35 am

Paige - I got a copy of Losing Faith awhile back. I really need to read it! I also read Being Friends With Boys and it was pretty good. I hope you enjoy everything you got this week! You can check out my IMM on the blog!

July 22, 2012 - 9:19 pm

VeganYANerds - I am so glad you got to go to the BoW event! Melina would have drawn a big crowd for sure and I have no doubt Gayle and Kristin did too!

So glad you enjoyed On the Jellicoe Road and I hope you love Graffiti Moon, another awesome Aussie read!

I am not a big zombie fan either but I have heard that the book is not really about zombies!

July 22, 2012 - 2:19 pm

Sash from Sash and Em - WEEEE! So much fun. I’m so glad we got to hang out!! xoxo

July 22, 2012 - 1:03 pm

elena - Hooray for Jellicoe Road! I definitely agree, it really is a book that needs to be reread. Hee, the library is perfect for satiating your bookish needs. I’m jealous yours gets books so quickly. I read Graffiti Moon recently! I liked it but don’t think I will write a review for it. I can’t wait to see yours though. I am not a zombie fan either but I want to read This Is Not a Test because I’ve heard the same things you have. Go renew your books, Estelle! 🙂

July 22, 2012 - 11:28 am

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - EEP! You’ve got Graffiti Moon on your list! I absolutely ADORED that book. And the other books sound SO GOOD.

July 22, 2012 - 9:55 am

Tara - So first of all – I think YOU should write a book about garage sales! I totally think it’d be a bestseller 🙂 Remind me on Gchat next week to tell you about my other garage sale story (not the bed story lol).

I can’t even tell you how pumped I am that you picked up books based on my reviews/our convos. You pretty much just made my week! I hope you enjoy them all and I can’t wait to chat with you about them when you’re finished!

Also – I need to read This Is Not a Test. *heads to library website* Thanks Estelle and Magan for the rec!

Magan: Shelve It (6/17/2012)

Happy Sunday, friends! You may have noticed my absence this week on twitter and commenting on your blogs. We’ve been sailing the sea to Alaska to celebrate a big anniversary for my parents! It’s been an amazing week, but I’ve really missed you guys (as you’ll notice in my vlog because I mention it, like, […]

Paige - I got an ARC of Pushing The Limits and I can’t wait to read it so I’m glad you enjoyed it. I also read One Moment a few weeks ago and I enjoyed it! I’m glad your having a good time on vacation =)

June 17, 2012 - 4:42 pm

VeganYANerds - Hey Magan, we all miss you too! It looks so cold in Alaska, it’s about the same temperature here at the moment, brr!

Enjoy the rest of your holiday! xox

Vy (Vy's Blog) - YES! So glad you loved Pushing the Limits. And also glad that you’re having a great time in Alaska 🙂

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I miss you and your pretty face Magan! Alaska looks beautiful and I hope I get to go one day. Keep having a good time! <3

June 17, 2012 - 9:19 am

Ginger @ GReads! - Magan!!! I miss your beautiful face!! Wow, Alaska looks beautiful! and COLD!! haha I’m so glad you’re enjoying your trip. It’s been awfully quiet around here without you, but Estelle has done a fantastic job of keeping things alive! Her and I have definitely been book chatting, haha.

I just requested Pushing the Limits on netgalley, so I hope I get approved soon! This sounds like a book I’d really enjoy.

June 17, 2012 - 9:17 am

elena - First off, you look GORGEOUS in the video!! Also, Alaska looks so beautiful. I miss you toooo. I heard good things about Pushing the Limits so I’m glad you love it. 😀

Shelve It: 6/10/2012

Hi! I’ve returned from the great depths of the ocean. Kind of. My brain is still in another galaxy so I hope some of this makes sense. Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols (Goodreads | Amazon) – Thanks to Small Girls, Big Business! A Long Way from You by Gwendolyn Heasley (Goodreads | Amazon) – […]

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Great vlog! I love the post-holiday fuzziness — that’s the sign that you had a GREAT holiday =) I haven’t read any Jennifer Echols before, but I keep hearing people rave about her books. Where would be a good place to start?
