VeganYANerds - Yay! So glad that you loved this, Estelle, as I just received a copy (such a pretty hardback) and I now I can’t wait to read it even more 😀

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - It definitely seems like you were able to connect with the characters, especially the main character, a ton Estelle, and that’s probably one of the most important things for me in a book. It’s also not often when we’re able to see a healthy and normal sister relationship in a book, and I think I’d love to read about that for a change. Even though there seems to be a love triangle, the themes of family and sister relationships definitely seem to overrule that, and I will definitely be picking this book up for myself to see what I think of it.

Fantastic review Estelle! I can’t wait to pick this book up now. <3

Terra Elan McVoy - Estelle, thank you for such a thoughtful review, and I’m thrilled you loved BEING FRIENDS WITH BOYS (and especially the girl, sister characters in it) so much. I hope to continue pleasing readers like you with my work!

Cynthia - This one sounds pretty fantastic. I love these type of books about relationships. Will definitely add it to my must buy list! 🙂

Hollie @ Music, Books and Tea - Reading your review has told me one thing: I need to get my hands on a copy of this book! This just sounds like the perfect book for me, especially with all the relationships and questioning whether or not you can just be friends with a boy without it ever amounting to anything else. I feel like I should have had a copy of this book when I was in high school. Ugh. I need to read this as soon as I possibly can!

Alexa Y. - I really, really want to read this one now because of your review. It sounds like such a fun book, but also a book that packs an emotional punch.

Also, that question – if girls and boys can be friends – is one that I’m still not sure about. I believe it’s possible BUT only up to a certain point.

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - OH ESTELLE! Oh, Estelle.
I LOVE THIS BOOK SO!
OH HOW I LOVE THIS BOOK!
I could swear that Terra Elan McVoy made Charlotte patterned completely after me. I KNOW you love it as much as I do. All the feelings and all of the relationships in this book…aaahhhh. I checked this one out of my library too and I read it twice before returning it, and I held it out overdue because I just couldn’t bear to take it back. My heart is so happy to see this pop up in my reader today! Smiles everywhere!!

Lisa [is busy nerding] - I love love LOVE books about relationships. Family and boys and self discovery. OH MY.

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!
