Estelle - Ginger, I totally feel ya on that sentiment.

Sometimes YAs are just so quick that it almost doesn’t matter if your time was wasted because it was only a day or 2, ya know? But I know I know I have to get my head out of the YA high school world sometimes or I’ll just personally go nuts.

Estelle - Jana, when I was writing about A SUMMER IN EUROPE, I immediately thought of you because you love travel so much. 🙂 Glad to know that I’m doing bad things to your wallet. What are friends for? 😉

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - I think I buy something new every time I read this feature! You are no good for me, Estelle! Or, well… my bank account. I just bought “A Summer in Europe”! We all knew that as soon as I saw the title, it pretty much didn’t matter what happened in the book. Thanks for the recommendation! I love this feature. (Or I hate it. :P)

Ginger @ GReads! - The first two have really peaked my interest! However, I am always scared of reading adult books now b/c I am so used to the quickness of young-adult. I get bored too easily when they describe scenes for 5 pages. You know what I mean??

VeganYANerds - I really like this feature, Estelle! It’s good to have a break from YA every now and then, I used to read more adult contemp. when I was a teen than I do now, so it’s time to get back into it.

I really like the sound of the first book, Friends Like Us, it’s going on my list!

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I love The Big Kids Table. It’s an awesome feature, despite adding to my EXTREMELY LONG book list. I’m particularly excited for Friends Like Us – sounds just up my alley!
