Magan: Shelve It 07/29/2012

Hello, hello friends! I hope you’re having a fantastic Sunday. My husband and I are with our dogs at the beach this weekend celebrating our 8 year wedding anniversary! (It’s actually on Tuesday, the 31st.) I recorded this Shelve It a little earlier in the week to make sure I could stop in to say […]

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - First of all, CINDER! I’m such a fan after finishing the book – it’s absolutely brilliant. Can’t wait to read Scarlet!

Also, I enjoyed Burn for Burn even though it was filled with a lot of things that I may not have necessarily agreed with. It was fun for me to read though!

Sash from Sash and Em - Makes sure to have cupcakes on hand when you’re reading Bittersweet. You *will* crave them! 🙂

Asheley (@BookwormAsheley) - I just read my first E Scott book myself, but it was Miracle. I liked it. I LOVED Cinder but it seems like forever ago that I read it. I need to reread it before Scarlet comes out. Great stuff!

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - P.S. And happy anniversary! Eight years – wow! That’s longer that my husband and I have even been together!

July 29, 2012 - 11:05 pm

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - YAY! Glad to hear that you’re enjoying Cinder! It took me a little while to warm up to the story, but once I got sucked in, I couldn’t put it down until I was done. I LOVED Cinder’s little robot friend (whose name is escaping me at the moment).

Thanks for posting that you borrowed The Rivals — I finished reading it last week, and completely forgot to a) write a review and b) update Goodreads! Whooooooooops… hope that you like the book!

elena - I agree about reading too many books in the same genre at the same time! I try to break it up, like I read a sci-fi then fantasy then paranormal etc. I’m so excited for Burn for Burn. I think I requested it on Netgalley then cancelled it since it took awhile to get back to me. I can’t wait to see the fun things you have coming up. I admire you & her husband for eating so healthily! I do not have the self-control for that and you definitely will get heaps of cupcakes from Bittersweet. Happy reading! 🙂

Keertana @ Ivy Book Bindings - I loved Bittersweet and can’t wait to see what you think of Burn for Burn! Happy Reading!(:

Brittani - Awesome set of books! I absolutely loved Bittersweet! It was such a cute read! I hope you enjoy all your books! 🙂

July 29, 2012 - 6:08 pm

Anna - PS: OH YES and yay to Cinder and Bittersweet too!

July 29, 2012 - 6:08 pm

Anna - Eeee I feel like we’re actually hanging out because you talk to me directly in this blog. Whee! And, yes, I am THRILLED re: Stealing Heaven. I really hope you love it <3

July 29, 2012 - 5:41 pm

VeganYANerds - Firstly I am a bit jealous of your beachy weekend, I hope you guys are having a lovely time 🙂

Secondly, yay for library books! I’ve only read one Elizabeth Scott (Something, Maybe) but I definitely want to read more and I’ve had the Viola book on my to-read list for a while.

I thought the same thing about Bittersweet, the cupcakes hooked me but you’re not missing anything! I baked cupcakes for a picnic yesterday and the sugar hit was terrible after just ONE! So stick with your clean eating 😉

July 29, 2012 - 5:24 pm

The Bumble Girl - Hi Magan! Happy Anniversary to you and hubs! Hope you’re having a fab time 🙂
I read Keep Holding On and loved how Susane told this story – I think you’ll like it too!
I need to get Cinder! The cover is amazing and I need to see this version of it!
Enjoy your reads! I look forward to seeing what you think of them!!!

July 29, 2012 - 11:51 am

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - Cinder!! That one is so good. I read it waay back in December, but I’m still always ranting about how good it is! 😉 Burn For Burn sounds like such a fun read- a book about revenge? I’m totally sold. Bittersweet is such a cute read, although you definitely should have some cupcakes around when you read it, it definitely makes you super hungry! [My mouth is watering just thinking about it…] Anyways, fantastic haul Magan! <3 Enjoy your anniversary!

July 29, 2012 - 10:57 am

Tara - CINDER!!! I’m so glad you picked this one up and I am a little (or maybe a lot) jealous you have Scarlet to read right after! I want to hear ALL about it when you’re finished 🙂

July 29, 2012 - 10:36 am

kailia @ Reading the Best of the Best - I absolutely love Elizabeth Scotts books but I haven’t read this one yet! I have yet to read Cinder and I can’t wait to get Burn for Burn in my hands!

Ginger @ GReads! - Anna recommended Stealing Heaven to me too, & I absolutely LOVED it! I think it’s a great E Scott book to start off with. If you like that one, may I suggest The Unwritten Rule next? I really enjoyed that one as well.

I am curious about this Viola book. You’ll have to tell me how it is. That cover looks like a very Magan book 😉

Andddddd… I get to see your beautiful face on FRIDAY!! YAY!!!

Magan: In My Mailbox (2)

Happy Sunday, everyone! I’m publishing our second IMM this week. It was a great bookish week! Hopefully I can make a big dent in all these books.  HOLD ME ACCOUNTABLE, okay? Kristi at The Story Siren started In My Mailbox, where bloggers can share books they’ve checked out of the library, borrowed from a friend, or received […]

Magan - Aww, thanks Ginger! I can’t wait to meet you tomorrow! I’m looking forward to ALA. I have way more books than I know what to do with right now.

January 19, 2012 - 1:14 pm

Magan - Thanks, Brittani! YEP! I was shocked it had the book too. I think my library has a decent selection of books, but it’s a matter of reserving them and waiting. Thanks so much for your awesome comment!

January 19, 2012 - 1:12 pm

Magan - Oh, great to know, Heather! I don’t know when I’ll read Dying to Know You. I need to make a list of the order in which I’d like to read everything.

January 19, 2012 - 1:10 pm

Magan - Hi Alison! Thanks for the comment! I am starting Wanderlove right now. I’m so excited to read it!

January 19, 2012 - 1:09 pm

Magan - April, I cried huge crocodile tears. I loved Before I Fall so much. I haven’t been able to start another book yet that I’m super in love with. I quit reading one last night because it didn’t compare. 🙂

January 19, 2012 - 1:04 pm

Magan - Mands, I’m sad you didn’t like Mara Dyer. I always get really nervous when there’s lots of hype about a book. I hope I love it!

January 16, 2012 - 8:23 pm

Mands - Great IMM! I didn’t like Mara Dyer, after all the hype it let me down big time but I would like to read Across the Universe.

January 16, 2012 - 3:27 pm

April Books & Wine - I shall forever love the library!

Before I Fall is SO good. I’m glad that you are loving it so far. And yes, have tissues handy.

AND ALSO THE FAULT IN OUR STARS! WHOO HOO!

January 15, 2012 - 9:52 pm

Alison - Great set! Before I Fall is so wonderful. I really want to read Wanderlove.

Heather Rosdol - I LOVED Daughter of Smoke and Bone, too!! It’s one of my favorites.

I got Dying to Know You and just sort of tested it out (I have a few to read before I get to it) and it’s really good!

Have fun reading!!

Heather

January 15, 2012 - 6:34 pm

Brittani - Awesome IMM Magan! Your library has Before We Fall? I’m jealous. I’ve been wanting to read it but neither of the libraries I go to have a copy. Mara Dyer is amazing!!! I really enjoyed that book! I have Across The Universe checked out from the library currently too! Lol. Enjoy all your books! 🙂

Ginger @ GReads! - Magan! You are so super cute!! 🙂 Loved “seeing” your face, hehe. I feel like I am one of the last people to read Across the Universe. I bought it a year ago & it’s been sitting on my shelf. I know, bad me!

Kristi at The Story Siren started a weekly meme called In My Mailbox, where bloggers can share books they’ve checked out of the library, borrowed from a friend, or received from a publisher. As Estelle and I are still pretty new at the whole blogging thing, we’ve been reluctant to participate. Being newbies didn’t seem […]

Magan - Thanks so much, Alisa! I feel like I hit the jackpot this time. I just finished Unforgettable and I’m having a hard time picking what to read next!

November 27, 2011 - 8:50 pm

Alisa - You’ve got some great choices in your mailbox! I really liked both Perfect Chemistry & The Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I’m sure you’ll enjoy them all. I haven’t touched Maze Runner or Stay with Me yet; I’ll have to be come back to see your thoughts on them :0)
