Estelle: Shelve It (10/28/2012)

Edit: Thanks to Jamie (Perpetual Page Turner) I just bought Blackberry Winter by Sarah Joi for my Nook. Only $2.99! (Amazon too!) Guess what? I bought absolutely no books since my last Shelve It. NONE. But I did buy a lot of shelves to put in our new apartment. So that sort of counts, right? […]

April Books & Wine - I’ve been pretty lax about buying books lately too.

I hope you are okay in the wake of Sandy!

VeganYANerds - Horray for moving and putting up new shelves, soon you can buy lots more books to put on them!

And yay for polish-buying! I *think* Julep are cruelty free/vegan so I’m going to see if I can find them here 🙂

And be careful hun, stay safe!

Tara - Please, please, PLEASE be careful this week with Sandy! At least the positive out of this is that you get to read lots and not have to go to work 🙂

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - I just bought this because of you, Estelle! It sounds darling! I love destination reads, and Greece is a place I’ve always wanted to visit!

elena - the setting for this book was fabulous! the lack of drama over the big event was weird to me too since um, that is kind of a big deal. i totally agree with you. there elements i did enjoy about this book and elements i didn’t but overall, the ~price is right~

Kristen - This kinda sounds like a ‘Prince & Me’ kind of book. And you know, sometimes I just need to read something cute and fluffy, even with all the flaws. Thanks for the honest review Estelle.

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I will say that I am already considering reading this because of the whole Greece thing. I love it when books are set in places that I want to visit myself! Plus, it does sound pretty cute, if a little far-fetched…

Tara - I agree with you that a major event like that would stick with me for a while (especially with my fear of flying). I think I would be willing to give this one a shot having your thoughts in the back of my mind. I think I would really enjoy the Greece setting and I always love reading some dramarama 🙂
