We’re Celebrating Our Friendiversary!

It’s true that you never know where you are going to meet the love of your life. Or in this case, one of your best friends. Three years ago, this week Magan was on her way to “work” at a wedding in Austin and Estelle was putting on a mint green dress to watch one […]

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Awwww you guys are so cute! I love that you’re celebrating your friendiversary!!
I can’t wait to read Past Perfect even more now! Maybe I should start that one soon….

March 1, 2014 - 2:57 pm

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - Happy anniversary, ladies! Great choices for female friendships, I loved all of these. And I agree that we need more in YA!

February 28, 2014 - 11:21 am

Lucy - Hooray for friendiversary’s! Yay for bonding over books and starting RBR! I like a good friendship book and you’ve listed some of my favorites in this post. Especially Maggie & Roux, and Cath & Reagan 🙂

February 28, 2014 - 8:52 am

Ginger @ GReads! - Aw I love this post! Happy Friendiversary!!

February 27, 2014 - 7:50 pm

Alexa S. - You guys! I’m still so very happy that you met, became BFFs and started Rather Be Reading. You guys are such an inspiring pair, the type of friendship I love seeing in books or in real life. The friendships you’ve chosen (I’ve read 3 out of 4!) are brilliant for the reasons you’ve mentioned here — all necessary in real, true friendship. I’m honored to be able to call you both my friends as well, and want to squishy hug you both <3

February 27, 2014 - 7:41 pm

Sash + Em - Friendship + Blog = The Best.

February 27, 2014 - 6:08 pm

Leah - I should not have read this while sitting by the window! Anyone driving by will probably think I’m a complete nut for grinning so hard. Your story AND you two are absolutely adorable!

Although we lost touch over the years, I met my best friend through Harry Potter message boards on AOL back in the day. 🙂 For years we’d chat online and send letters and finally, in 2008, we had the chance to meet in person (at a HP convention obvs). I’m a total believer that a best friend might be right behind you in line at the grocery store or sitting across from you on the bus. Like Jamie, I’m all for chatting up strangers – and, luckily, I get to do that at work!

February 27, 2014 - 5:21 pm

Victoria (aka Zemfirka) - Happy friendiversary ladies!!! 🙂

February 27, 2014 - 12:47 pm

Jen Ellision - Awww, I love this! Incidentally, the beginning of this post reminds me of one of my favorite quotes/female friendships from Code Name Verity: “It’s like being in love, discovering your best friend.”

February 27, 2014 - 8:51 am

Christina @ Allodoxophobia - Happy anniversary! I love this post! If Melissa and I wrote one, we’d be celebrating 29 years as friends this coming summer. So important to celebrate friendship 🙂 My favorite group of friends might be The Raven Boys + Blue. They support and antagonize each other in all kinds of interesting ways.

February 27, 2014 - 8:37 am

Andi - I love this! What a cute story on how you met! Really it is amazing how the littlest things can bring two people together as friends and I love that you two are proof of that.
Happy Friendiversary!

February 27, 2014 - 8:12 am

Jamie - I still love your “how you met” story! This is why I am PRO talking to strangers about books 😛

Love the picks I’ve read (Fangirl, Also Known As and WSW) and so agree with the friendships! Gotta read Past Perfect!

How lucky you are to have each other in life and with this blog! This post made me think fondly about the two best friends in my life from middle school/HS and then HS/college. I’m only close with one of them at this point, and not even bffs really, but I loved thinking about HOW I met them and how important they were to my life and how I grew as a person. It’s harder for me as an adult to find a close friend like that these because everyone is just in such different places in life but I still hope to find my adulthood peanut butter to my jelly. It’s funny when I think about it though how my sister has really become that person since the day she told me she was pregnant with Genevieve.

ANYWHO now I’m all nostalgic and I apologize for doing it all over your comment box haha. I’m happy that 3 years ago you got your book nerd on as strangers because, if not, you both wouldn’t be in my life…and that would be sad because you guys have definitely had an impact on my life!

Top Ten Tuesday: Let’s Talk 2014 Resolutions

Hey-lo! It’s Tuesday and time to talk about New Year’s Resolutions! Do you do this every year, do you follow them, do they change? Well thanks to Broke and Bookish’s meme this week we are spilling the good stuff. We can’t wait to hear what all of you are hoping for and striving to accomplish […]

January 28, 2014 - 7:03 am

Judith - E, I can totally relate to what you said about taking a break from electronics. With blogging and social media and even uni work, I sometimes spend entire days behind my laptop, and it’s slightly driving me crazy. I also just don’t want to be that person always texting when hanging out with friends – that’s just rude. Speaking of that last part: nurturing friendships is so, so important. Last year, I wasn’t in a good place and I’ve really gotten to know who my friends are. Now it’s time for me to give back and be a better friend.

Magan, I especially like that you mentioned embracing snail mail, because that’s something I want to do as well. Some of my 2013 highlights included sweet notes and packages from friends, and this is something I really want to do as well (especially because blogging friends live too far away to actually hang out with for me). Nothing is better than returning home to find a lovely card from someone you love. 🙂

January 11, 2014 - 9:10 pm

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Excellent goals and all very attainable! 🙂
I totally need to watch my spending. I think I’m already doing better with it (not like I was bad but you know. BOOK BUYING.) now that I have a mortgage. We make our payment everything month and we’ve only had our house for a few months so NO principle (practically) is getting paid off! I’m a person who’s always paid things off quickly so it’s so weird to not see that number coming down. I really want to put our extra money towards that or towards fixing up the house instead of my personal indulgent habits!
I’m really trying to read for ME too. I feel bad DNFing books but honestly, I cannot force myself to finish a book if I’m not enjoying it. I never used to care before I had a blog so why should that change? I should be reading what I’m enjoying!
I have no advice on how to choose books, unfortunately! I’m such a mood reader that at least for this year, I’ve just been picking books that are the genre I feel like reading and trying to work through my ARCs (as long as that mood still applies)!

January 7, 2014 - 10:18 pm

Ellie - Estelle, you managed to PERFECTLY capture how I’m feeling about this new year with #5. Magan, love your number 5 too. I was way too ambitious last year!

January 7, 2014 - 4:02 pm

Alexa S. - You ladies have some amazing resolutions for 2014! As always, I love that you guys aren’t afraid to get extremely personal and share your feelings/life with us… even through this list of things you hope for or hope to accomplish in 2014.

E, I absolutely agree with your bid to take a break from electronics. As of the beginning of this year, I’m determined to make it so that I stop accessing my blog/email by 11pm each day. I’m working on slowly using Twitter less on my phone, but that one might take a lot longer! I also like the last two items on your resolutions list A LOT. Nurturing relationships – good, healthy, fulfilling ones – is something that I’m determined to do as well this year. I want my friends and family to know how much they mean to me! And I want to be able to look back at 2014 and know that I’ve lived and loved to the best of my abilities.

M, I have been thinking about how I choose my next reads! My thoughts were geared towards turning it into a blog feature, but that’s still up in the air. I’d like to read a better variety of books as well as start the ones on my shelf too! I also really like the fact that you’ve put snail mail as a part of your resolutions list. It’s always nice to receive an unexpected note or card of encouragement in the mail from a friend; it just feels very thoughtful and sweet and boosts my spirits tremendously.

Ladies, I too am currently trying to be better about my finances. Thus, my book buying and clothes buying ban! I’m also like you, E, in that I’m parceling out the times I go out just so I don’t go over my own budget. Here’s to hoping we manage to wrangle control over our shopping habits and budgets!

Happy new year, ladies. I look forward to more bookish conversations, adventures and possible collaborations with you two <3

January 7, 2014 - 3:48 pm

Molly @ wrapped up in books - Those seem like very practical goals, Estelle! Let me know if you have any great ideas for how to decrease electronics time…I’m glued to my phone and use work as an excuse.

Magan, for choosing what to read next, why don’t you put the titles you own but haven’t read on slips of paper, store them in a jar, and draw one when you’re reading to move on? I saw a post on Pinterest/Book Riot for using that system…

I love the snail mail idea, too. Last year I did a “month of mail” which is a project sponsored by “more love letters” where I wrote a letter and mailed a card to a friend every day for a month. It was fun, and this year I hope to spread it out throughout the year rather than just in one fell swoop.

Happy new year to you both!

January 7, 2014 - 2:52 pm

Savannah - Wow! 🙂 Seeing the two of you spelling out such meaningful and significant goals is really inspiring. I hope you accomplish everything you aim to in 2014!

January 7, 2014 - 2:35 pm

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - These are wonderful, and very practical resolutions. Estelle, I couldn’t agree more about life being too precious to waste it on reading books you aren’t enjoying. I mean, of course give the books a try, but after 50 pages, usually, if I’m not feeling a book, then I move on to something else. I may come back to that book later on, but I don’t worry about it.

Also, I should be singing Let it Go to my grumpiness revolving around friendships that didn’t work out. Focus on the positive, like you said 🙂

Magan, Snail mail is fun, isn’t it? There’s nothing quite like getting a letter or card in the mail, and it’s much more special than an email. I love email, but Snail Mail is special.

January 7, 2014 - 1:48 pm

Christina @ Allodoxophobia - Love both your lists! I definitely need to put down the technology. You know you have a problem when you have a phone in your hand at all times. Bad bad bad me. And I’m with you on the shopping. Sales are so tempting! I find if I unsubscribe fro deal emails, I’m a lot better.

January 7, 2014 - 1:11 pm

Lacie - “Life is too precious to stick with something you don’t like.” <—-I really liked this. The snail mail one made me laugh. Good luck with all of your goals, you have some great ones. Have a great week.

Lacie @ Rainy Dayz Reviewz

January 7, 2014 - 1:00 pm

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - E: I love “Read in a different way.” – I know that I read in weird ways compared to everyone else, I love it when people stretch themselves and try out new ways to read books. YOU ROCK THAT. Oh my gosh, I love it. I want to know how this works for you!! Discussion post!!! xo

M: Just this morning I saw a picture on Tumblr of a jar with a bunch of multicolored pieces of paper in it with titles of books on them for when people can’t decide what to read next. I thought OH MY WHAT A MARVELOUS IDEA because I don’t make lists and plan ahead and all of that. Maybe I need to hunt down that picture and send it to you because I found it VERY inspiring and it would look really cute on a shelf or table somewhere.

Also, I love sending out mail. I think it’s a dying thing and I’m trying to teach Layla Greta and Jack how important it is – they’re learning because they get really excited when they actually get an envelope in the mail. I’d love to drop you a line sometime if you’re up for it. xo

January 7, 2014 - 12:52 pm

Doris - Awesome goals!
I hope you complete every single one <3
Good luck!
Here's Our TTT
Doris @ OABR

January 7, 2014 - 12:49 pm

Jamie - Really love your resolutions, ladies!

E — I am SO WITH YOU on #1. I did better in the month of December because I really worked on it but I am WAY too obsessed. I can’t do anything without checking my phone for Twitter, email, FB, Instagram. First thing I look at when I wake up in the morning and before I go to sleep. I’m pretty good about not being on it when I’m OUT doing stuff with people but it’s always right there with me and if there is a lag in anything I’m doing I reach for my phone. And my computer..I’m just always on it. I need to get better about putting it away when I’m no longer productive. At least for now. I’m okay with mindlessly perusing sometimes but it’s gotten in the way of productivity of things I need to do and also, like you mentioned, keeps me away from OTHER things I like to do. LESS SCREEN TIME IN 2014. Let’s keep each other on this!

I struggle real hard with #4. We’ve talked a lot about friendship in 2013 together and I know we’ve both been hurt so hopefully we’ll be able to let that go and focus on the good!

Magan:

If you can come up with a system to pick books by..please lend it to me. I’m so random. I posted a Vine awhile ago about wishing my book would just throw a book at me to read so I didn’t have to think. Let’s invent a bookshelf that does that yes? haha

SNAIL MAIL. okay so little known fact: I used to have like 20 penpals when I was a pre-teen and early teen. I was OBSESSED. It was kind of like how book blogging is where I’d be like SAD MAILBOX DAY when nothing came that day. I LOVE SNAIL MAIL. I like this resolution! I need to also do this more!

I really love #5 — you’ve got an amazing new life change happening and I think being realistic about what you can do is smart! Helps you not to feel guilty about it when you are off spending time with your lovely little family <3

January 7, 2014 - 11:45 am

Rachel - Estelle, I absolutely love your last resolution. That’s kind of how I’d like this year to be for me too. I can’t list specifics because I have no clue what this year is going to bring, but I just want to make sure I take advantage of every opportunity and live as much as I can. Magan, I love the snail mail one! I have a few friends who I write letters to and vice versa, and yeah we talk all the time, but it’s always fun to get something in the mail. It’s more personal and just different from any other form of communication.

January 7, 2014 - 11:34 am

Lisa is Busy Nerding - Nurture Friendships is SUCH a solid resolution, Estelle! It’s a personal goal of mine too.

And Magan, I love your goal of embracing snail mail! I try to do that as well. It’s not easy when the internet is there!

January 7, 2014 - 11:08 am

Sunny - I adore both of your goals. ADORE. Snail mail is such a good idea. I’d been thinking about writing my elderly relatives and I think it’s great to use the good ole pen and paper. Also, reading a different way, YES. I stare blankly at books I want to read, but just can’t decide or I don’t know what I’m in the mood for.

January 7, 2014 - 10:43 am

Tara - I can definitely relate to the money thing this year. I’d love to be able to stash away more money and have a buffer in case something goes wrong (and having two freelancers in the house, something *always* goes wrong). Here’s to having an amazing bookish and moneyish 2014 🙂

January 7, 2014 - 10:21 am

Stormy - I’m trying to take more breaks from electronics too. I LOVE the internet(it’s where I can talk to all my blogging friends), and twitter and such, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t want days to pass me by when I could have DONE something. I can write, bake, go for a walk, etc. I’m trying to be realistic about my reading goal as well and read more for quality than quantity. I might read less books this year, but I hope I’m better at picking books I enjoy.

January 7, 2014 - 9:55 am

alice-jane - I know what you mean about having more “me” time! I’ve always been out and about lately and I have a tendency to fill up my schedule with things, leaving no time to myself. It’s great to have some quiet time and sip hot chocolate, with the looks of this weather! Also, embracing snail mail sounds like a good choice! I used to write more letters but I’ve fallen off the wagon and it’s definitely a good time to get back since my friends are all spread out now.

Taking a break from electronics is something I need to do as well since I’ve noticed myself to be *quite* attached to my phone and laptop.

For me, in 2014, I want to put more effort in staying in touch with old friends and keep my goals in mind throughout the year, not just at the beginning.

January 7, 2014 - 1:02 am

Aly @ My Heart Hearts Books - I totally get both of you about the money situation. I’m about to graduate college and I’m so stressed about money. I want to make financial plan and stick to it.

Top Ten Books We Wouldn’t Mind Santa Bringing Us

Happy Almost-Christmas, friends! Today we’re participating in The Broke and the Bookish’s Top Ten Tuesday feature by sharing TEN books we wouldn’t mind Santa bringing us. (*hint, hint* *wink, wink*, husbands!) Do you have books on your wish lists this year? Let us know what they are and which of ours you’re hoping for, too! Estelle’s […]

January 28, 2014 - 7:11 am

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.

January 6, 2014 - 7:01 pm

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.

December 27, 2013 - 12:41 pm

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!

December 25, 2013 - 8:35 am

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!

December 24, 2013 - 8:32 am

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!

Aly @ My Heart Hearts BooksMy TTT

December 24, 2013 - 12:49 am

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!

Happy 2nd Anniversary to Rather Be Reading!

Today is a super duper exciting day for us! (Well, technically November 1st was.) WE HAVE BEEN BLOGGING FOR TWO YEARS! Holy cow, you guys. Where has time gone?

November 6, 2013 - 2:46 am

Alexa Y. - HAPPY BLOGGING BIRTHDAY MAGAN & ESTELLE! *throws confetti* *hands over cupcakes + drinks* I am so honored to have gotten to know you two, and develop a friendship that exists apart from the bookish world our blogs reside in. You two are such wonderful people and great examples of what I love to see in the book blogging community. You both inspire me constantly with how creative, fun and unique your posts and reviews are! Congratulations again and I love you both xo

November 5, 2013 - 11:38 pm

Savvy (and it’s sequel) by Ingrid Law, Inkheart (and the series) by Cornelia Funke, Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaimen, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelo, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupery, and So You Want to be a Wizard (and the series) by Diane Duane.

November 5, 2013 - 10:45 pm

Emmah - “Flat-Out Love” by: Jessica Park!

November 5, 2013 - 10:45 pm

Em - Happy Blogoversary! Thanks so much for sharing this amazing giveaway.

November 5, 2013 - 10:43 pm

Tami - Congratulations! I’m currently reading Deadly Heat so I would recommend that, especially if you watch Castle.

November 5, 2013 - 10:43 pm

Orchid @ The Haunting of Orchid Forsythia - Congrats on two years of blogging! =) Too many new books for me to recommend one, so, I’m going to recommend an old favorite, The Dark Lord of Derkholm by Diana Wynne Jones since I just finished re-reading it.

November 5, 2013 - 10:40 pm

Lisa - Will you read The Monstrumologist, please? It’s kinda dark but methinks you will love the maturity and general awesomeness of it.

CONGRATS TO TWO YEARS!! oxo

November 5, 2013 - 10:24 pm

Emma @ Hopeful Happiness - I just became a new parent earlier this month so my book recommendation is really more for Magan. While pregnant I read just about everything I could get my hands on. I was pretty terrified of giving birth and found that the book Natural Hospital Birth: The Best of Both Worlds by Cynthia Gabriel was incredibly comforting. I actually found myself thinking of random phrases from the book while in labor. I think it’s a book that is fantastic and helpful even if you don’t necessarily want a natural birth.

I would also recommend Pregnancy, Childbirth and the Newborn: The Complete Guide. I learned so much from that book!

Congrats on blogging for 2 years! That is awesome!!

November 5, 2013 - 10:21 pm

Colleen - Happy Blogoversary! Wow, two years is a long time. That’s great. I’m reading Until It Hurts To Stop right now and it’s pretty good, but I’m behind in reading it so most people have probably already read it.

Lisa - Two years! This is one of my favorite blogs and I’m so happy to have it to read. I love everything you girls do. Keep it up!

Book recommendations are always so hard because I want to tell people to read EVERYTHING. One of my favorite books this year was In the Shadow of Black Birds by Cat Winters. It’s sooo good. Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone was also very good. And oh my god. I finished The Fault in Our Stars a week ago and loooved it. I was putting it off because of the hype and it being a “cancer book” and everything, but it’s so worth it. I mean, I was probably the last person to read it, but on the off chance that one or both of you haven’t, it’s definitely worth the time (and tears!).

November 5, 2013 - 9:03 pm

Randi M - Happy blogoversary! 🙂 Two years is a loooong time! Winger is one of my all-time faves as well, and I can’t wait to read more from Andrew Smith.

I recommend Reality Boy & Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King.

November 5, 2013 - 8:40 pm

Sara (of The Page Sage) - Happy blogoversary, ladies!! Congrats!

November 5, 2013 - 8:21 pm

Ambur - I can never just think of one book to recommend (plus, you might have read just the one :P), so I’m gonna give a couple of books that I’ve read and absolutely loved!

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness—such a beautiful story about dealing with serious illness and loss
Second Chance Summmer by Morgan Matson (or Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour)—seriously I LOVE Morgan Matson!! She’s amazing and her stories are so beautiful, funny, and REAL!
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen—I’m a Dessen fan, and this one happens to be my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE of all of her books that I’ve read…it’s so amazing, seriously…Love it!
Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton (and the rest of the Goblin Wars trilogy)—this trilogy just doesn’t get nearly enough love. 😛 It’s one of my favourites, and it’s just so unique and wonderful! The characters and writing are fabulous, and it’s one of those trilogies that you’ll love right to the very end.

…and my final suggestion, Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren (and the rest of the Beautiful Bastard Series)—this one’s an adult series, but it’s SOOO good! The characters are awesome, the chemistry is phenomenal, and the humour is spectacular! I love books that make me feel all warm and gushy with feelings, but also make me laugh (as a side note, Alice Clayton’s Wallbanger is another book that fits this!).

Okay! Hopefully one of those sounds good to either of you, and you haven’t read them all! ;D Happy reading, and Congratulations on your 2nd Blogaversary!!!! 😀
HAPPY READING!
Ambur

Mandy R - My last 5* book was Anna Dressed in Blood. The Darkest Minds is also very good.

November 5, 2013 - 5:24 pm

Chenise J. - Congrats on your two year blogoversary! Such an awesome feat! If you haven’t read Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas, I’d definitely recommend this one. Great mystery!

November 5, 2013 - 4:47 pm

Sarah k - Happy two year anniversary! I would recommend Grave Mercy by R.L LaFevers and For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund.

November 5, 2013 - 3:19 pm

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - Congrats ladies! What a great accomplishment and an adorable picture of you guys. Here’s to many more years!

November 5, 2013 - 3:06 pm

November 5, 2013 - 2:14 pm

Tammy - Boy Nobody by Allen Zadoff

November 5, 2013 - 1:33 pm

Summer - Congratulations on your anniversary! I love the blog, I’m forever finding great new reads thanks to you. As far as a recommendation, I don’t know if you’ve read it, but I just finished Fangirl, and I adored everything about it, the characters were remarkably real.

November 5, 2013 - 1:25 pm

Kelly G. - Happy blogoversary!

Book recommendation? Red Rising by Pierce Brown totally lived up to all the hype.

November 5, 2013 - 1:15 pm

Ami - I’m not a frequent commenter but wanted to chime in and say congrats on 2 years! I love the blog. Ever since discovering it my Goodreads “to-read” list has been very long!

November 5, 2013 - 12:33 pm

Justine @ paperback heart - YAAAY! Congratulations on two fabulous years!
My recommendation is Gorgeous by Paul Rudnick. It was one of my favorite books this year and tons of fun.

November 5, 2013 - 12:04 pm

Amanda @ Hell-Bent to Read - *pops champagne* HAPPY 2 YEARS!

This just reminded me that my 1 year is coming up. EEP! Anyway. This is exciting, as RBR is one of my favorite blogs, and you two are some of my favorite people. Congratulations!

November 5, 2013 - 10:43 am

Rachel - *throws confetti* Happy anniversary!!! I can’t believe you guys have been blogging for two years. It’s been so great getting to know you two, both IRL and online (Magan, I need to meet you sometime!) and I’m really glad I have your friendship. Your blog has always been one of my favorites and I can’t wait to see what the future brings for you and your blog. Congrats guys! Oh. And a book recommendation? Hmm. The last book I loved was Personal Effects by E. M. Kokie, so I guess I’d recommend that if you haven’t read it yet!

November 5, 2013 - 10:37 am

Jen - I don’t comment a lot, but I love your blog. Thanks for all teh great reading recs!

November 5, 2013 - 10:33 am

Jess @ Gone with the Words - First, CONGRATULATIONS on an amazing two years. Second, I’m so happy I’ve been able to get to know each of you more and more these past two years. Estelle, we so need to meet in person soon because I feel only half complete having only met Magan. 🙂 Third! Please continue sharing your thoughtful, fun reviews with us. NEVER STOP. NEVEEEEER! 😀

November 5, 2013 - 10:26 am

Jackie Lea Sommers - You two are the best! And what a fun giveaway!!!

November 5, 2013 - 9:56 am

Lucy @ The Reading Date - Happy 2 years! I’m not the best commenter but your blog is one of my faves and I love your taste in books. Choosing Winger and Openly Straight as your favorite reads just proves my point. Keep having fun with your blog!

November 5, 2013 - 9:51 am

ash - Two years! And I feel like I’ve been around from the beginning, which makes me even happier for you two! All the congrats! As for a book rec, Aristole and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, owns my heart.

November 5, 2013 - 9:48 am

Jen @ Pop! Goes The Reader - Wishing you both the warmest and happiest of anniversaries! Rather Be Reading was one of the first blogs I discovered when I first launched Pop! Goes The Reader and I’ll always remember how welcoming and supportive both of y’all were to me. Words can’t express how thankful I was, and still am, for that. Both of you consistently write some of my favourite reviews and are two of the kindest, sweetest bloggers I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet 😀 Here’s to many more happy years!

November 5, 2013 - 9:47 am

Jessi - Happy 2 years 🙂 I’m new to the book review/blogging world but I’m so glad I stumbled across your blog. Because of y’all (and several other great blogs), my to-read list on Goodreads is constantly expanding and I’m still not sure when I’ll actually be able to read all of the books I’ve put on there. Looking forward to many more posts and reviews from you ladies!

November 5, 2013 - 9:27 am

Meg - Happy, happy two years — an awesome accomplishment! Hope there are many more to come. 🙂

November 5, 2013 - 9:20 am

alice-jane - Love, love your blog! Congrats to two years of Rather be Reading and I’m looking forward to a bunch more!

November 5, 2013 - 9:07 am

Jamie - Happy 2 years!! Loved getting to know you both in these 2 years!! 🙂

November 5, 2013 - 9:05 am

Daphne - Love you guys! Congrats on 2 years! As for a book rec…I don’t know if I can think of something you guys haven’t read yet. Let me go with Beth Harbison, an adult author that I read for the first time this summer & then immediately had to go and find every books she’s written. Best of luck to your personal life & your blogging future!

November 5, 2013 - 9:03 am

Bookworm1858 - Congrats on 2 years-that is such an exciting accomplishment to celebrate! For book recommendation, how about Elizabeth C. Bunce’s StarCrossed? I feel like this fantasy didn’t get the love it deserves (also sequel Liar’s Moon.)

November 5, 2013 - 8:43 am

Ginger @ GReads! - Happy 2 years, Ladies! Hard to believe it’s been that long already.. I still remember discovering your blog & then not long after meeting Magan in person 🙂 Thank you, both, for always writing such sincere thoughtful posts. And, thank you for your friendships <3

November 5, 2013 - 8:39 am

Indigo Wayworth - One of my favourite reads of the year was WILD AWAKE, which I see in the pile! But to everyone that hasn’t read it, do it now!

November 5, 2013 - 8:39 am

Stormy - Happy blog birthday! So glad to see Rather Be Reading turn another year old. As for book recommendations, hmm, it’s difficult. The first one I thought of was This Song Will Save Your Life, by that’s obviously been read all ready. Ooh, got one–The Book Thief! Most people have already read it but seems like a good book recommendation since the movie is coming out so soon.

November 5, 2013 - 8:18 am

Kimmy - Congratulations! I’m celebrating my 3 year blog anniversary this month and it’s nuts how the time flies!

Hmm a book recommendation…I have to say Vicious, by Victoria Schwab. It’s hands-down one of the best books I’ve read this year. It’s so so so good!!

November 5, 2013 - 8:11 am

Betty - 2 years you guys!!! Congratulations! I love your blog and am a pretty big fan of both of yours. You make a great team and it is obvious how well you work together. Keep it going!! 🙂 Book rec you ask??…. *grin* Well… I would say Alice in Zombieland, but Estelle READ IT!! Woooo!! SLATED- have you guys read it yet?? *tsk tsk* Otherwise- Rule by Jay Crownover– you need the tattoos and piercings… yes yes, you do.

Shelve It: Double the V-Logs

Hey, hey! We’re both here this lovely Sunday with vlogs for you in this week’s Shelve It! We’re going to be celebrating our two year anniversary this week and we wanted to say hello, catch up, and remind you of something fun we have coming up this Tuesday! We’ll be doing a Twitter chat from […]

Young Adult Book Blog: If I Lie by Corrine Jackson - […] mentioned in my Shelve It vlog on Sunday that I was recently in a deep book slump because I was having a really difficult time […]

November 6, 2013 - 5:14 pm

Lena @ Addicted 2 Novels - FINGERPRINTS OF YOU! I EFFING LOVE THAT BOOK!

November 4, 2013 - 5:51 pm

Alexa Y. - Hooray for two years of RBR! I’m so happy that blogging brought us together, as my life would be so less awesome without you both. <3

November 3, 2013 - 11:17 pm

Lisa Schensted - TWO YEARS! YIPEE!
I’m totes on that twitter chat, too! See ya there, homies.

November 3, 2013 - 7:23 pm

Paige - I bought myself a copy of Allegiant a week or two ago and I’m dying to read it! But I’m afraid to because I don’t want the trilogy to end. Good luck with everything Magan! And I hope you both enjoy everything!

My IMM

November 3, 2013 - 2:22 pm

Liz (Along for the Read) - Estelle- I hate covers with faces, which is the sole reason that I have not yet purchased or read Just One Year yet. I’m going to hold out for the library copy, and hope that the paperback matches Just One Day (because I also really like that paperback cover)

Magan- I hope everything turns out well with your foster daughter,that must be a roller coaster of emotions, but it is so amazing that you have been able to experience all of that. I’ll be sending good thoughts your way.

I am so looking forward to the RBR chat on Tuesday! Can’t wait to talk to you both!

November 3, 2013 - 1:50 pm

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - Aww, Magan. I hope things go as well as they can with your family. I really liked The Distance Between Us, too. It’s a light sweet read – maybe something you might need right now. I also need to stop buying, and then not reading my books.

Estelle – Prom & Prejudice is super cute. I don’t love all of Elizabeth Eulberg’s books, but that one is at the top of my list. I also really like The Lonely Heart’s Club. When I have a down day, I like to head to the book store, too.

I’m writing myself a reminder right now for your Twitter Chat. Congrats on two years of blogging!

Estelle + Magan: Nailed It (+ Giveaway)

Happy Tuesday, friends! Unfortunately this new feature was a casualty of our server issues from last week. Originally, we planned to post this last Sunday but here we are today instead! (In the future, look for a Nailed It post celebrating upcoming releases every three to four weeks!) Here’s the story: We both have Julep Maven nail […]

April 8, 2013 - 4:25 pm

ashley - I like juilanne!

April 8, 2013 - 10:29 am

Margie aka The Bumble Girl - Ooo, what a sweet idea! I love all the colors so much! I usually go for pinks like in Magan’s picks, but lately I’ve been thinking so much about teals and sparkly stuff, makes me smile 🙂

April 7, 2013 - 6:34 pm

Ashley - So excited for the Lauren Graham book! And those colors! Amy is an Ashley color!

April 7, 2013 - 5:06 pm

Ashley @ FireStarBooks - I loooove Portia! Glittery and simple!

April 7, 2013 - 3:18 pm

Allie Lewis - I really like Julianne and Helen for everyday, but Amy would be a welcome change of pace with its vividness. It’s perfect for summer.

April 6, 2013 - 11:42 pm

MelodyJ - I like Rose and Amy.

April 6, 2013 - 9:44 pm

Marie - I really Portia!

April 6, 2013 - 12:17 am

Mollie Katie - I love the Portia and Amy colors and the idea to offset one!

April 4, 2013 - 9:19 pm

Cee - I love the Rose and the Amy color.

April 4, 2013 - 11:30 am

shokufeh - Even without it being by Lauren Graham, I’d be all over that “Someday, Someday, Maybe.” But because it is…. And that Susan is a pretty shade.

April 4, 2013 - 1:50 am

Lucía Valencia - I loooove Amy!

April 3, 2013 - 7:58 pm

daphne - i like amy & rose the best. i recently subscribed to Julep, too, and I’m anxiously waiting for my first set to come in.

April 3, 2013 - 7:06 pm

Sarah O - Ah I love all these colours but I think the Amy one is my favourite. You guys need to stop getting me hooked on Julep! But keep doing this feature because it’s pretty 😛

April 3, 2013 - 7:05 pm

Krispy - This is a brilliant feature! I love books and nail polish too, and the colors you chose are perfect for each book!

I love the sets you put together. If I had to choose 1 color, I’d probably go with PORTIA since I’m partial to blues, but I do love the pop of ROSE too!

April 3, 2013 - 2:01 pm

Cynthia - Great new feature! I love it!! and I actually love that cover of Someday, someday, Maybe. I love that it’s a little bit foggy but it makes the red coat stand out a lot. Thanks for the giveaway guys! I’m slowly becoming a nail polish addict myself. =)

April 3, 2013 - 12:55 pm

Maggie @ Young Adult Anonymous - This feature is so fun! And I LOVE the colors you chose. I think I need to join all the cool kids and become a Julep Maven. I would pick Julianne.

April 3, 2013 - 12:38 pm

Tiff @ Mostly YA Lit - AMAZING feature. I’m reading Someday, Someday, Maybe next week, and I’m super excited, so I’d have to choose one of those colours. I can’t decide, though…maybe Helen or Julianne?

Great picks for colours! Can’t wait to read your reviews!

April 3, 2013 - 12:15 pm

Bonnie - The Boyfriend App color collection is PERFECTION. Love those colors too! I have never heard of Julep before… going to have to go check them out. 🙂

April 3, 2013 - 10:46 am

Sharon @ The Book Barbies - I absolutely love the idea behind this giveaway, ladies! I am super excited for BOTH of these books, and the colors match them perfectly!

My favorite color featured above is probably Amy, because it’s such a fun shade of blue. I really like all the colors, though, honestly, especially Julianne. So lovely!

April 3, 2013 - 9:14 am

Helen Moulden - You’d have thought I’d choose Helen, but nope it has to be Rose!

April 3, 2013 - 5:47 am

Eszter @ Anneish Imaginary Adventures - I’m so happy to have found other kindred spirits! Nail Polish + Books my favourite obsessions too! 😀 Oh, but the decision is soooooo hard: I think I’ll go for Portia! THANK YOU SO MUCH for this awesome giveaway!

April 2, 2013 - 10:56 pm

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - I love ALL of these colors (and this new feature) but I think I’m most drawn to Helen. Or Rose. Or Julianne. Crap! I like Magan’s picks, too, but I can’t stop looking at the Estelle’s mostly because I loved that book and the cover looks so pretty with the colors right next to it.

I think I’m saying Helen is my favorite. But really I just love them all.

April 2, 2013 - 9:49 pm

Tammy - Portia!

April 2, 2013 - 9:07 pm

Nuzaifa @ Say It With Books - Loving this feature since it combines TWO of my fave addictions-Books & Nail Polish!
Great idea guys! 😀
I love Portia-Looks super cute and glittery. *siiign*

April 2, 2013 - 8:38 pm

Candy S - I like the Helen one.

April 2, 2013 - 7:46 pm

Bridget Heiple Reich - From the colors above, I like Amy or Rose the best. If I was going to win one, I would choose Susan because I don’t have that one.

April 2, 2013 - 6:27 pm

Kimmy - Ooh, I love Portia!! And I can’t wait to read Someday, Someday, Maybe!

April 2, 2013 - 5:08 pm

Annie - All the colors for Someday, Someday Maybe look so gorgeous! I love Julianne! Also, Amy is amazing! I think I’m going to have to give Julep nail polish a shot! :)Can’t wait for the future Nailed It posts!

April 2, 2013 - 4:45 pm

shoesforall - Susan looks AMAZING.

April 2, 2013 - 4:15 pm

Amanda @ MarvelousCatoReviews - I am seriously loving the color “Amy”! It’s such a pretty blue, and it’s a blue that you can wear year-round!

April 2, 2013 - 4:04 pm

TheBookishManicurist - You know I’m gonna love this feature, right? You girls picked the perfect shades to match the covers 🙂

And thanks so much for the lovely shout out! xox

April 2, 2013 - 3:49 pm

lisa @speciallisabooks - Oh my gosh what a brilliant giveaway! These colours are all beautiful! I think AMY is the one I love the most! Thanks for giveaway chance! xx

April 2, 2013 - 3:44 pm

Rachel - Oh my gosh, this is my FAVORITE blog feature ever. I don’t share my nailpolish love with others very often because I’m slightly horrified with how much of it I buy, but seriously, this is such a great idea! I really like both of the combinations your girls came up with. My favorite color is definitely Susan. I’m a pink polish girl 🙂

April 2, 2013 - 3:23 pm

Andrea Eisenhour - Picking one of these colors is like trying to pick a favorite star in the sky! But if I must, Id pick Amy! (Also the name of one of my best friends!!)

April 2, 2013 - 2:16 pm

Alexa Y. - This post is all kinds of awesome – I hope you know that. The colors you’ve picked out are GORGEOUS. I did my nails in Helen last Saturday and it’s such a beautiful shade! (Plus, I totally walked the Brooklyn Bridge with it on my nails, so that’s cool too!)

And Mandee ROCKS. She’s the book mani goddess.

April 2, 2013 - 2:05 pm

Mallory L. - First, I am SO happy to have found yall’s blog! Books + Nail polish-doesn’t get much better than that!

April 2, 2013 - 1:55 pm

Heather - I’d have to go with Portia so Magan can come over and I can borrow Amy 😉

April 2, 2013 - 1:53 pm

Elizabeth Hafner - Hard decision but I’ll have to go with Amy.

April 2, 2013 - 1:27 pm

Katie - You girls and your love of nail polish is too cute!! Love these colors:)

April 2, 2013 - 1:23 pm

Elissa - You said nail polish and now I’m here!! I really like the Julianne. It’s such a pretty color and probably works well for all occasions.

April 2, 2013 - 1:01 pm

Ellice - I love this feature! Books + nail polish = awesome 🙂 Those colors match the book covers perfectly. Helen is my favorite, I think (so hard to choose!). Can’t wait to read your review of Lauren Graham’s book!

April 2, 2013 - 11:16 am

Lisa - Okay, this? This is AMAZING.

April 2, 2013 - 11:16 am

Ghenet Myrthil - I love this feature! I’ve heard a lot about Julip nail polishes but have never owned any. My favorite of these is the rose. If I don’t win this giveaway, I will need to splurge on it anyway! 🙂

April 2, 2013 - 10:32 am

Tara - This feature is SO you guys! I leave the nails to a professional because I completely suck at it, so I envy your polish collections and ability to do your own nails 😉

April 2, 2013 - 9:01 am

Ginger @ GReads! - You gals are so cute & clever! Love this new feature idea 🙂 If I won the giveaway, I think I’d choose Helen. But really I love all the colors! Thank you 🙂

April 2, 2013 - 8:56 am

Cari - OH I LOVE THE ROSE! Thanks for the wonderful and unique giveaway!

April 2, 2013 - 7:46 am

Tara @ Hobbitsies - Yes! Love this! I’ve been thinking about doing something like this on Pinterest but as per usual, you girls nailed it (HAHA pun totally intended) much better than I would have. I’ve been skipping Julep boxes for the past few months in favour of other nail polishes, but I just might need to go order Julianne!

Also, Estelle, I’m super excited to read your review of Someday, Someday Maybe! I’ll be digging into that soon as well and I’m so excited!

April 2, 2013 - 4:13 am

Olivia - This is such a cute idea! I like Julianne. Simple, classy, understated (maybe) but pretty. I didn’t get the hype about Julep until I recently tried some of their nail polish. OH MY NAILS, they’re awesome!

April 2, 2013 - 2:56 am

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - I’ve been intrigued by all these Julep polish pictures popping up everywhere! I think they have so many pretty colors! My favorite is Susan. Like you, I feel like it would be super cute with flip flops or sandals! My toes are always pink all summer long. 🙂 Thanks for the opportunity to win! What a fun feature!

April 2, 2013 - 1:17 am

Cassie - AH, you two and your JULEP! You have poisoned .. wait no. BLESSED my nail polish collection! Personally i LOVE Amy & Portia i think they’re gorgeous, i always go for blues and greens, can’t help it! <3 And I didn't KNOW it was Lauren Graham the actress writing that book! aH….INTERESTTTINGG.

April 2, 2013 - 1:11 am

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Such a cute idea! But, then again, I would expect nothing less from the two of you because you’re both so adorable :). I gotta go with Magan’s picks, mainly because my toenails are pink 🙂

April 2, 2013 - 12:11 am

Stormy @ Book.Blog.Bake. - Definitely a fan of the rose color the most. I like nail polish in theory, but never feel like spending money on it, so I always go for the classic red.

April 2, 2013 - 12:08 am

elena - i LOOOOVE this feature! nail polish is one thing i’ll always have an abundant of so no need for me to enter this giveaway. 🙂 the colours are so pretty!! i’m excited for lauren graham’s book.
