Books, Hats, and Cheer: 2012 Holidays!

I may or may not be humming the theme from “Home Alone” as I write this. Okay, fine. I am. Hope all of you are keeping the holiday spirit alive this weekend! It’s a bit colder in New York, and there was a good amount of snow this afternoon. (Not much of it stuck to […]

Alexa Y. - I love Christmas! I wish it didn’t have to end already. Love all the presents you featured here, and I’m super glad you liked the bookmark ๐Ÿ™‚

Nikki @ Foil the Plot - I am totally loving all of the bookish gear, lady. You now have me thinking that I need to invest in a nookish sweater for my little e-reader too! Glad the holidays were a raging success! Happy New Year!

VeganYANerds - I love your cupcake hat! I’ve seen them online but didn’t know if I’d wear it much (it doesn’t get *that* cold here in winter). And I hope you love Along for the Ride!!

Laura @ the Booksmartie - I love this! I’m a big fan of the holidays – Christmas is by far my favorite and I always love to see people enjoy it instead of stressing out ๐Ÿ™‚ And that hat is adorable!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Awww…you’re so cute in your cupcake hat! I hope you enjoy Along for the Ride — I read it last year on our honeymoon and you can never go wrong with a Sarah Dessen novel =)

I get to keep my tree up until at least January 7th, since we also celebrate Serbian Christmas! Hope your tree can stay up that long too — just tell your family that you’re celebrating a second Christmas too, multi-culturalism and all that, right?

Magan’s Shelve It: December 30, 2012

  Howdy, howdy! Happy (almost) 2013! It feels so good to be back in the swing of things and to have books to share with you guys in this week’s Shelve It. I was kind of on a self-imposed-book-ban to help save up for the holidays. Never fear! I’m back with lots of awesome! *All […]

VeganYANerds - Yay! Happy New Year to you, Magan – and Estelle! ๐Ÿ™‚

I want that person to return Ruby Oliver #4 already! Is it overdue? Sometimes I put something on hold at my library and they send the person a reminder so a. they can’t renew it again and b. they end up returning it. Anyway, Frankie is also awesome, and I hope you love her story!

I hope you get to wear your new dress out tonight (well tomorrow night for you!)

The Bumble Girl - Hi pretty girl! You are so very sweet!
I adore Susane Colasanti and all the books that I have been able to read by her! She is such a great and inspirational person! I highly recommend Keep Holding On as your next book by her!
Great adult reads too! I should try to read a few of those next year too ๐Ÿ™‚
Hope you and Estelle have a wonderful New Year’s! xo

Lori - I adore the Heist Society books! They are so much fun. I can’t wait to see what you think of it.

December 30, 2012 - 3:09 am

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - YOU ARE SO CUTE! Seriously. Especially the “y’all”s =) I will totally give you bonus points for venturing into the adult section … it can be a scary, uncertain kind of place. And there’s SO MANY MORE BOOKS in that section. It’s a little daunting. Happy New Year to you both — can’t wait for more of your amazing reviews in 2013! Mwah!

December 30, 2012 - 12:10 am

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - This was such a cute v-log Magan! Yay for finally buying books!! I’m glad you went crazy at Half Price Books too, I visited that place this week as well, but managed to restrict myself to 3 books. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But Crazy sounds really neat. I mean, a kid’s father is going crazy. Sign me up as well! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve heard amazing things about Heist Society, it seems like such a fun book. I’ll be looking out for your review of that one before I decide if I should pick it up for myself or not. And I’m glad you managed to venture into the Adult section at B&N! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I totally feel comfortable in the YA section myself, so I totally understand what you mean by that. But it’s great that you venturing out and trying some more genres! I plan to do that in 2013 as well, within different genres of YA, since I mainly read fantasy/dystopia.

Fantastic haul Magan! This v-log makes me want to meet you so badly… perhaps at TLA this year? *hint hint* Enjoy your lovelies and have a fabulous new year! <3

elena - ooh lots of books I haven’t heard of it here! I’ve seen The Thing About Truth’s cover but I don’t think I’ve actually read the summary. I’m curious to read it now!

July 1, 2012 - 10:21 am

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - So. Many. Good. Books. My wallet is not going to be able to handle all of the trauma! Haha

June 30, 2012 - 10:06 pm

Ginger @ GReads! - Why have I never heard of Last Summer? I am tempted to read this one. You are not helping my wallet!! haha
