Emma @ Miss Print - I love these graphics! The One was a lot of fun so I hope you get to it soon 🙂

December 23, 2014 - 2:14 pm

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - All those little Christmas tree book covers are so cute. I wouldn’t mind finding Ask Again Later under the Christmas tree either. I’ve read it already, but I would love to own my own copy.

December 23, 2014 - 12:41 pm

Mel @ Reviews In A Pinch - I really just want to add your list to my list and make it bigger, but that seems kind of greedy during the season of giving. I hope you find most if not all of these under your tree!

December 23, 2014 - 11:01 am

Tiff @ Mostly YA Lit - I totally forgot to ask for Four! On it now.

You must get to The Lonely Hearts Club – so cute, such a fast read, and it will leave you with a warm feeling in your heart, Magan.

Adorable graphics.

Here’s my TTT – no pressure!

December 23, 2014 - 10:41 am

Brianna - Happy holidays, Estelle and Magan!

December 23, 2014 - 10:15 am

Leah - hee, Estelle vlogged about Jojo and now you’re wishing for Jojo. Spread the Jojo love!! Really, Magan, One Plus One was GREAT and if Santa delivers you should definitely bump it to the top of your list!

December 23, 2014 - 9:09 am

Christina - I have been dying to read One Plus One…been sitting on my shelf for awhile. I hope you get to read The One…I was happy with it! I hope you get some great books under your Christmas Tree this year. Happy Holidays!

Hollie - I bought One Plus One earlier this year and STILL haven’t read it. Ooops. I hope you get it and love it!

December 23, 2014 - 4:00 am

Nattie - I missed Four off my list! Ahh, I can’t believe I forgot about that one… I’ve been thinking of starting Just One Day actually because I loved If I Stay. The same with The Selection really. The others, I haven’t really heard that much about so I might need to do a little more investigating haha :3 A really great list! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Amanda @ Late Nights with Good Books - Ever since I saw this amazing cover and read the blurb, I knew that I had to read this book, and your review only confirms that knowledge. I think the whole premise is really interesting, and I like how in your review you point out new aspects about the relationship between Wren and Callum, which seems to basically be the main complaint most people have. I’m interested to see how it plays out myself. Great review!

May 12, 2013 - 6:01 am

Magan's May 12, 2013 Shelve It - […] A review of Reboot by Amy Tintera […]

May 11, 2013 - 11:57 pm

Courtney @ Courtney Reads A Lot - Hmmmm…I’ve debated on reading this or not. I’m so wary of dystopias anymore because I find myself frequently disappointed. But after reading your positive review, I’m definitely leaning more towards reading this. I’m loving the unique premise and how badass Wren seems to be! Great review! 😀

May 9, 2013 - 7:15 pm

Lisa - Magan. MAGAN.

THIS BOOK IS MADE FOR ME.

I need to get this in my life. Sci fi and dystopian and asking Big Questions?! YES YES YES.

May 9, 2013 - 5:49 pm

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - I ordered a copy of this one after hearing about it on Epic Reads Tea Time, but I’m even MORE excited to read it now that I know you loved it too, Magan!

May 9, 2013 - 2:22 pm

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Great review of this one!! I felt very similar. I tried not to question things too much because honestly? I didn’t want to haha. I was really enjoying the story and I loved all of the action AND the romance that was going on.

May 9, 2013 - 12:03 pm

Janita @ Book, Interrupted - I can’t wait to read this. I liked how you added a few elements that other reviewers haven’t touched on, like her being insecure about her past and her scars, and the ultimatum presented to her to train Callum. I’m even more excited to read this after your review.

May 9, 2013 - 10:15 am

Laura @ the Booksmartie - I am so glad you liked this book! I stumbled upon this one just yesterday and it sounds so unique, I really want to read it. Your review convinced me 🙂 Great job!

May 8, 2013 - 9:32 pm

Tara - I was SO bummed when I realized this book expired on my Kindle before I got to it 🙁 Now your review has me even more bummed (but in a good way of course!)

May 8, 2013 - 4:38 pm

Alexa Y. - I am so, so curious about Reboot! It certainly sounds like a great debut novel, and I think the concept is truly very fresh. I should definitely check this one out soon!

May 8, 2013 - 11:13 am

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - I’ve been so excited to read this, I was hoping my library would have it but it doesn’t even seem like they have it on order. I might just have to buy it. Great review!

May 8, 2013 - 2:59 am

VeganYANerds - I’ve read mixed things about Reboot but your review has me interested, Magan. I like the sound of Wren and the romance sounds different seeing as she wasn’t looking for it to begin with

May 8, 2013 - 12:53 am

Bookworm1858 - I just loved Callum so much-he was such a great book guy and I’m so pleased to have met him!

Lena @ Addicted 2 Novels - So many good books being released in May. So many beach reads, so little time!

May 4, 2013 - 9:50 pm

Rachel - Sometimes I honestly wish I could pause all these new releases so I can catch up and be ready for them. I want to read almost every May release, excluding September Girls because I will never put myself through the torture that is that book. I’ve already read/own a lot of these, but I really can’t wait for Five Summers to come out. That totally looks like a me book.

May 4, 2013 - 5:49 pm

candy - I never really paid much attention to mentions of The Rules for Disappearing bc for a teen mom’s perspective it sounds like a book about a teen running away,which can be a scary thought for a mom.But now that I read the Description here,I want to read it.I also love this idea of the Author being from Louisiana like me.Thanks for posting about theses books.I also want to read Golden and Parallel.

May 3, 2013 - 5:07 pm

Annie - Oooh, May seems like an amazing month! I’m definitely going to grab Winger as soon as it comes out! Marked it on my calendar! 🙂

May 3, 2013 - 1:37 pm

Leticia (@osoordinary) - Reboot!Reboot!Reboot! Can’t wait to read it! Also, I won an ARC of Parallel so I’m excited to read that! It’ll be my first parallel universes book and I’m newly interested, after having just completed the Fringe TV series! = )

May 3, 2013 - 11:45 am

Alexa Y. - Oh Lord, there goes all my cash! (Just kidding.) (Not really.) Seriously, there’s a ton of good stuff on here! My favorite, without a doubt, is Golden because I loved that book so.

May 3, 2013 - 10:36 am

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Holy almost-summer, Batman is right!! My wallet is soooo suffering this month, that’s for sure. I’ve already read a few but there are sooo many more I can’t wait to read! 🙂

May 3, 2013 - 8:51 am

Bookworm1858 - So many good titles-I want to read almost all of these and the only ones I’ve picked up so far are Reboot, The Rules for Disappearing, and The Book of Broken Hearts. I can’t wait to get these other ones!

May 3, 2013 - 6:39 am

Hannah @ Matter Loved Dust - Some of these have different UK release dates so I picked up ‘Invisibility’ yesterday which I’m excited to start. Also really looking forward to ‘The Originals’ and ‘Winger’!

Magan + Estelle’s Shelve It >> 3/3/2013

Hi friends! We’re here together this week (but not really together, sigh) for Shelve It, sharing some of the latest books that have popped up at our post office or in our inboxes. It’s kind of a quiet week since Estelle is still on her “book buying ban” so we thought this was the best […]

Magan - Aww, thanks Kelly! You’re too sweet!

And yes — YOU MUST MUST MUST read Eleanor and Park. Did I say you must? 😉

March 4, 2013 - 4:59 pm

Alexa Y. - I love the hedgehog measuring cups! I probably would display them instead of using them, because they’re too cute!

Also, awesome book hauls girls! Eleanor & Park is probably my favorite thing that you both got this week 😉

March 3, 2013 - 8:27 pm

Paige - I can’t wait to read The Boyfriend App it looks like it’s going to be a cute read! I hope you guys enjoy everything!

March 3, 2013 - 4:29 pm

Kelly - I keep forgetting you guys had your blog re-done and every time I pop by, I find myself just staring at how PRETTY it is!

Anyways, love those hedgehogs; they’re too adorable!

And apparently I need to get a copy of Eleanor and Park? Lol

March 3, 2013 - 11:13 am

Tara - I MUST read Eleanor & Park, like, yesterday. And how cute are those hedgehogs?!

March 3, 2013 - 10:27 am

Bookworm1858 - I love those hedgehogs-so cute! I have a huge stack of books to go through but I still am really tempted to run out and get Attachments after loving Eleanor and Park so much.

March 3, 2013 - 8:44 am

Annette - Eleanor & Park sounds so good. I don’t have it yet, but I will! I do have Severed Heads, and I think it sounds good. Hope you enjoy!My STS
