Shelve It: August 24, 2014

Happy Sunday evening! A good-ish hair day + a pile of books? Time for a Shelve It. (Especially when James was nice enough to go grocery shopping and let me record this only four times. haha) I’ve been sharing most of what I bought lately on our Instagram account so I settled on what I’ve […]

Alexa S. - HOORAY FOR THE START OF ME AND YOU! I definitely can’t wait to read that one, as you already know how much I loved Open Road Summer 🙂

Tammy - I own Open Road Summer but haven’t read it, I guess I need to soon.

Leah - The SECOND you read Madame Picasso I want to hear all about it!! So I know next to nothing about art, but for some reason, historical art fiction (I probably just made that up, but we’ll go with it!) has my heart.
A recent one I read (that was only okay so I won’t push it too hard) was I Always Loved You. Still set in Paris, but this one focuses on Degas rather than Picasso.
Safe Keeping sounds like a book I would enjoy – thanks for putting it on my radar! The cover instantly made me think of Lisa Scottoline’s Save Me, but I’m thinking it’s just the red jacket.

Rather Be Reading Blog: Shelve It, December 2, 2012 - […] A review for Viola in Reel Life by Adriana Trigiani […]

Kristen Evey - I LOVE boarding school stories. I was homeschooled, so boarding school is like so far off from what my life was like that it just seems so magical and otherworldly. This book sounds so fun and sweet. Definitely placing it on my TBR list. Have you read Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson? Another fun boarding school book. 🙂

Mary @ My Sister's Bookshelf - This sounds a little like if you took all the different elements of Amber Tamblyn’s storyline from Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and mixed them around. In a good way. Also, I know that’s not the character name, but I do love the actress so she sort of stuck in my mind!

Henry Circle - This book review gives me boarding school fantasies! Making supportive new friends and meeting cute boys? yes, please. Great review!

VeganYANerds - I love all the library books you’re getting, I haven’t been to my library in so long, I really need to go for a visit but I will come back with way too many books!

Also, regarding My Most Excellent Year – you had me at Mary Poppins, sounds like a fun read!

Jasmine Rose - I really enjoyed Small Town Sinners. I’ve heard people say it’s really preachy, but I didn’t feel that at all. It really just felt like a story about a girl questioning the things she’s also known to be fact.

Molly@Reviewsbymolly - Lots of fantastic sounding reads! Enjoy them 🙂 My IMM Post

Jess @ Gone with the Words - Oooh! TONS of awesome books this week!

I’ve been sort of terrified of reading The Secret Year because I KNOW it will make me FEEL EMOTIONS! lol

Jayla | LadyBlueJay - I have heard nothing but good things about Lexapros and Cons. I can’t wait to pick up my copy soon! 🙂

Estelle - Hey Eva! Thanks for the comment! After I read My Most Excellent Year, you are welcome to borrow it. I have never heard of Kluger so I’m glad to hear that you have and you liked his other book. I’ll have to look into it. Hope you have a great week!

April 15, 2012 - 8:47 am

Eva @ The Book Stoner - AH! You have My Most Excellent Year! I’ve been meaning to read that book but local bookstores don’t have it. I also recently read Kluger’s other book, Almost Like Being In Love, and loved it. Kluger is a good writer. Can’t wait to read your review of My Most Excellent Year. 🙂
