Judith - I also wouldn’t mind Santa bringing you If You Find Me, Estelle. (I forgot! Did he?) Did I mention that I like that book? Because I do. It’s pretty good. I guess.

Alexa S. - It makes me ridiculously happy to see that SOMETHING STRANGE & DEADLY is on your list, E! You know Rachel and I absolutely LOVED that series, and I hope you do too once you get a chance to read it. You’ll also have to let me know if you get Goodbye to All That — I have it but haven’t read it yet!

As for you M, I think you’ll enjoy Crash Into You. Even though it’s not my favorite of the McGarry books, it’s still pretty fun to read! Plus, the car and racing parts are awesome.

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - Yippee for Crash Into You and Pivot Point! Those are both such good reads :) Andddd I own If You Find Me and Something Strange and Deadly. I should probably get on reading those! Can’t wait to see if Santa brought you what you wanted!

alisa selene - Merry Christmas! I so want ‘Crash Into You’!

December 24, 2013 - 4:11 pm

Candice - With the exception of Something Strange and Deadly (which is fab, btw) I haven’t read any of these! I’d love a copy of The Art of Wishing; very nearly put this on my own list today! Hope Santa is good to both of you this year! Merry Christmas!

December 24, 2013 - 12:59 pm

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - Sex & Violence, yay! I hope Estelle gets this so we can talk about it! And If you Find Me, Losing Hope, and Pivot Point were all favorite 2013 reads for me! Merry Christmas ladies!

December 24, 2013 - 12:46 pm

Lucy - I spy two books that I suspect will be on my year-end favorites list – If You Find Me and Sex and Violence. And Oh! Crash Into You and Losing Hope are awesome too.

Hope Santa is very good to both of you this year. Happy holidays, Estelle and Magan!

Ginger @ GReads! - Merry Christmas Eve ladies!! I hope “Santa” (aka husbands lol) bring see this post too 😉 Great picks!

December 24, 2013 - 3:01 am

Chrissi Reads - I loved Losing Hope, Crash Into You and Pivot Point. I hope Santa brings you these books or that you get your hands on them soon. Happy Christmas :-)

December 24, 2013 - 2:42 am

Jen @ Books and Other Happy Ever Afters - I actually own a few of these on my Kindle, but I hear that the physical copy of CRASH INTO YOU is gorgeous, so I would love a copy of that one too! And I can imagine THE ART OF WISHING being all sorts of pretty, too. All of these are great Christmas gifts to wish for, I’m crossing my fingers for you both! :)

December 24, 2013 - 1:55 am

Sara (of The Page Sage) - Something Strange and Deadly!! I really (selfishly) hope you get that book so we can talk about it after you read it! :) Pivot Point sounds really great- I shamefully haven’t read it either.

Hope you have have a Merry Christmas and that you get all the books on your wishlist! :)

December 24, 2013 - 1:36 am

Nicole - Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Mansfield Park (notice a theme??)

December 24, 2013 - 12:52 am

Aly @ My Heart Hearts Books - Pivot Point, Crash Into You and Something Strange & Deadly!!!! I haven’t read the other books on your list but I can’t personally vouch for those. But I hope you get some or any of the books on your list!

Jen @ Pop! Goes The Reader - Estelle: I’m quite certain only dolphins and dogs could hear me when I saw The Art Of Wishing on your Christmas wishlist and let out a resounding yelp. What can I say? I just ADORE that novel! Here’s hoping Santa remembers to bring you a copy as I would absolutely love to hear your thoughts on it. I really do think you would enjoy it! :)
Wishing you both a very Merry Christmas!

March 2013 Young Adult Book Releases

Okay, so this is silly, but I’m still so ridiculously giddy over all the graphics Alex made for us. Inserting our new Monthly Book Release one above makes me soooo happy because this is the first official time I get to use it. *happy dance* Anyway — what’s kind of depressing is that we’re soon […]

Magan - Right, Alexa? So many good ones, not enough time! :)

February 27, 2013 - 1:47 pm

Alexa Y. - As always, your monthly post has reminded me that there are a TON of great books that I want to read during March! Now if only I had a Time Turner so I could get to them all…

February 27, 2013 - 12:13 am

Maggie @ Young Adult Anonymous - I love the graphic. Seriously, this is one of the prettiest blogs out there. Thanks for this handy dandy list! :)

February 25, 2013 - 11:19 am

February 24, 2013 - 8:14 am

Bella - March looks like a very good month for book releases! :] I’m really excited for The Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality, Going Vintage, and Poison. Thanks so much for sharing!

February 23, 2013 - 3:33 pm

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - So Magan I can totally understand why you’re so excited to use that graphic, because it is ridiculously awesome. I am still in awe of your gorgeous blog design, even though I’ve visited your blog so much since it was redone. But it never fails to blow me away!

But anyways, I’m pretty much dying for Requiem as well. I plan to completely blow off ALL homework that day, and just spend the night reading. I want no disturbances.

I’m also pretty excited for Mila 2.0 and The Murmurings! Both sounds fabulous.

Thanks for sharing, Magan! <3

February 23, 2013 - 11:35 am

Jessica - Sweet Green Tangerine - Oh my gosh, SO stinkin excited for Requiem. Thanks for sharing all of these. :)

February 22, 2013 - 6:50 pm

Annie - The books sound amazing, and I love all the covers! They’re brilliant! I’m so excited for Dr. Bird’s Advice for Sad Poets, it sounds great!

February 22, 2013 - 4:37 pm

elena - I’m excited for Let the Sky Fall and Poison! Like you already know, I’m soo curious to see what you’ll think of Requiem.

February 22, 2013 - 10:39 am

Magan - Bookworm, there’s just no end in sight for all the awesome. Really, so, so many good things coming! My husband will flip if he finds out how many I *want* to buy! 😉

February 22, 2013 - 10:38 am

Magan - Ginger! It’s still March! I feel a little like a fraud because I haven’t read the other two books. I know, I know! :(

February 22, 2013 - 10:37 am

Magan - Ugh, LENA! I’m not sure how I forgot this. Well, yes I do. It was 1:00AM when I was putting this list together. Thanks for the heads up — I added it to the list!

February 22, 2013 - 9:54 am

Lena @ Addicted 2 Novels - LOVE this post, but my bank account hates you! Goodbye savings, hello goodies! I’m seriously excited about GOING VINTAGE and REQUIEM. Tsk, tsk, tsk, Magan, you forgot THINGS I CAN’T FORGET. March 1st, yo!

February 22, 2013 - 9:51 am

Ginger @ GReads! - There’s a pretty important book coming out in March that didn’t make your list: CLOCKWORK PRINCESS by Cassandra Clare. Or at least I think it’s coming out in March, unless they changed the date AGAIN lol.

February 22, 2013 - 9:11 am

Bookworm1858 - So I was hoping that March would be a slower month after all the great releases of January and February but I was wrong. There are just so many amazing books and I’m sad because I know I can’t get to them all :(
