Magan: Shelve It July 1, 2012

HI, FRIENDS! I kind of feel like a slacker because I don’t have a vlog for today’s Shelve It, but ya know, sometimes life gets a little hectic (and I look a little ca-razy today…therefore should not be seen in vlog format). Moving on. I did go to ALA this past week, but I’m just […]

Magan - Paige! You’ve got to pick up SCS soon! It’s sooooooooo good! Read it asap!

Paige - I’m so jealous of Second Chance Summer. It’s a monster of a book but it looks so good. Also Hush Hush is really good I loved the first two books! I hope you enjoy everything you got this week. Here’s my IMM!

Magan - Hi Kim! I didn’t ask for these books, but Simon & Schuster was gracious and kind enough to send them to me. They’re familiar with the types of books I usually read and are also pushing me to get out of my comfort zone a bit. 🙂 They’re a fantastic publisher and I’m so thankful for their generosity. If you’re hoping to establish relationships with publishers, my advice is to follow up with them for the review books you’re reading. If you do netgalley or get books from conferences, make sure you touch base with them and do send through a review. I think follow-through and consistency goes a long way. Hope this helps!

Kim - They just sent you a box of books? or did you ask for them?

VeganYANerds - I bet ALA was fun and hooray for meeting Morgan!

Nice stack of books! S&S in Australia are really fantastic, too. I still haven’t read Second Chance Summer, even though I have a copy and I enjoyed Hush, Hush. It’s not the best series ever written but it was a fun read!

April Books & Wine - I am curious how you’ll feel about the relationship in Hush, Hush. I’ve zero interest in reading that series, but I like reading people’s reactions to it. That’s strange isn’t it?

ANYWAYS!

I love seeing all those pretty contemps stacked up.

Happy reading 😀

margie {the bumble girl} - Oh, I love the Hush, Hush series! You’re either going to love Patch or hate him, lol. The third book was a bit of a disappointment, but I’m hoping that the last one will make up for it!
Great stack of books, I hope you’re enjoying them right now 🙂

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - I need to buy Second Chance Summer! I just finished Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, which was SO cute. I heard they make an appearance in Second Chance Summer, which makes me ridiculously excited! I also enjoyed Hush, Hush, so I hope that you will too. =)

Happy reading! <3

VeganYANerds - I loved this post, it made me want to run out and buy a lot of books! I feel like everything month I say “This is going to be such a good month for YA” and June is no exception!

Great list, thanks for sharing it! Enjoy!

ComaCalm - I requested Temptation from NetGalley – it’s not something I’d normally read but I loved the idea of it and really wanted to try it. I was pretty disappointed. Within the first couple of pages she was gasping whenever he looked at her etc. I was like, what? What? So yeah, I didn’t finish it!
