Estelle: Shelve It (7/22/2012)

And it’s Sunday again! Funny how that happens! How has your weekend gone? Hopefully relaxing and productive! We’ve been hosting a garage sale for the past few days… and you know… some interesting people go to garage sales. Some good, some bad. Has anyone written a book about this? It could be a best seller!

April Books & Wine - I say this on every Shelve It, but I love your love of the library.

Also I die of jealous over the Books Of Wonder event, for sure.

Asheley (@BookwormAsheley) - OOH! I’m halfway thru Miracle by Elizabeth Scott AS WE SPEAK. I’m about to finish it in a little bit.

I just read This Is Not A Test a few days ago and my post went up. I think I just gushed about how much I loved it. It was my first Courtney Summers book, so yesterday I read Fall For Anything.

I’m rambling. You’re talking about some great books there, missy!

Paige - I got a copy of Losing Faith awhile back. I really need to read it! I also read Being Friends With Boys and it was pretty good. I hope you enjoy everything you got this week! You can check out my IMM on the blog!

VeganYANerds - I am so glad you got to go to the BoW event! Melina would have drawn a big crowd for sure and I have no doubt Gayle and Kristin did too!

So glad you enjoyed On the Jellicoe Road and I hope you love Graffiti Moon, another awesome Aussie read!

I am not a big zombie fan either but I have heard that the book is not really about zombies!

July 22, 2012 - 2:19 pm

Sash from Sash and Em - WEEEE! So much fun. I’m so glad we got to hang out!! xoxo

July 22, 2012 - 1:03 pm

elena - Hooray for Jellicoe Road! I definitely agree, it really is a book that needs to be reread. Hee, the library is perfect for satiating your bookish needs. I’m jealous yours gets books so quickly. I read Graffiti Moon recently! I liked it but don’t think I will write a review for it. I can’t wait to see yours though. I am not a zombie fan either but I want to read This Is Not a Test because I’ve heard the same things you have. Go renew your books, Estelle! 🙂

July 22, 2012 - 11:28 am

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - EEP! You’ve got Graffiti Moon on your list! I absolutely ADORED that book. And the other books sound SO GOOD.

July 22, 2012 - 9:55 am

Tara - So first of all – I think YOU should write a book about garage sales! I totally think it’d be a bestseller 🙂 Remind me on Gchat next week to tell you about my other garage sale story (not the bed story lol).

I can’t even tell you how pumped I am that you picked up books based on my reviews/our convos. You pretty much just made my week! I hope you enjoy them all and I can’t wait to chat with you about them when you’re finished!

Also – I need to read This Is Not a Test. *heads to library website* Thanks Estelle and Magan for the rec!

In My Mailbox (10) + Our 100th Post!

A big Texas heya! I hope you’re having a fantastic Sunday! Estelle and I are actually spending today together. In New York. Holy cow is this exciting! I’ve got some fun books to share with you in this In My Mailbox post. In My Mailbox is a feature hosted by Kristi at the Story Siren. […]

Sasha - Bunheads! YES! This book has its subtle way with you (or at least, it did with me). It’s not “in-your-face” but has a rather quiet awesomeness about it. Hope you love! xoxo

March 12, 2012 - 5:42 pm

Paige - I’m so jealous of The Selection & Bunheads. I can’t wait to read them both. I hope you enjoy everything you got this week. Here’s my IMM!

Dani C. - Oooh! Looks like you got some great books this week! I see some I need to add to my to read list!

Thanks for sharing!

March 12, 2012 - 1:27 am

Jasmine Rose - OMG HE IS WE!! Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one who knows about them so it’s always crazy when I see someone always talking about them. Congrats on 100 posts, you guys :]

March 11, 2012 - 11:27 pm

Brittani - Awesome IMM Magan! AHH! The Selection! I hope your enjoying it! I cant wait to read it myself! Definitely looking forward to your thoughts on it! 🙂


-Brittani 🙂

Ashley @ Ashley Loves Books - So jealous you have The Story of Us and The Selection – both have been on my want list for awhile! The covers for each are gorgeous, too.

Happy reading!
Check out what’s in my mailbox

VeganYANerds - Happy 100 posts!

I have read a few of Deb’s books and I’m really looking forward to her new one!

I hope you guys are having a great time together 😀 xox

March 11, 2012 - 2:45 pm

Sharon @ Fictionally Inclined - You got The Story of Us?! Excuse me while I die of envy!

Anyway. What a cool opportunity! 😀 And it really makes me happy that “Shake It Out” was among the music listed. I love that song! I will have to investigate further regarding the other books/songs listed. This was a really cool idea. 🙂

March 11, 2012 - 10:57 am

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - How fun that you’re getting to see Estelle and meet Alexa! I’ll meet all of you one day too, I’m sure. 🙂 Hope you have fun! I love New York, and want to go back again really soon!

I’ll be interested to hear what you think of The Selection. There’s been some drama surrounding this book with author vs. blogger, so I’ve been leery of picking it up. I think it sounds cool, though, so I hope to read it soon!

What a cool playlist! Happy 100th post!

Oh, and here is my IMM. 🙂 – http://thatartsyreadergirl.blogspot.com/2012/03/in-my-mailbox-2.html

Amy @ Turn the Page (YA) - Great post!

Bunheads and Pretty Crooked are on my wishlist – I hope you enjoy them all! Have a fab day together!

Ginger @ GReads! - Two things:

March 11, 2012 - 7:37 am

April Books & Wine - Happy 100th post! 🙂

YAY for Spotify.

Also? Cracked looks good as does Pretty Crooked and The Story Of Us. 🙂

Estelle - It might actually make a good TV series too if you think about it. haha. I did like the book but now that I’ve read more of Scott’s books… this one is falling in my list. I loved Bloom and just finished Between Here & Forever. They both ended better for me. The story seemed to work better. But this one was still intriguing and I just love the colors in that cover. Thanks for coming by to comment!

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I actually read this book this year as well and I really liked it. I thought Danielle was a great character! And I loved Greg 🙂
