Shelve It: In Which We Buy All the Books

Howdy, friends! We’re both checking in to confess how many books share the books we’ve purchased lately with another Shelve It. It’s been a good, good month for reading and we both, um, went a little overboard. Our wallets are feeling quite depleted, but we’re really excited about all of these and we hope you are, […]

Judith - M, I can’t wait to see what you think of Pointe. I’ve heard AMAZING things about it. I also thoroughly enjoyed Rites of Passage and On the Fence, so I hope you’ll like them.

E, whoa, amazing books! Of course, Open Road Summer is my FAVORITE. I also love the Great cake, and I can’t wait to read that.

Alexa S. - Whee, happy reading ladies! I think I got roughly the same amount of books you each did individually, so we’re good. I’d say we bought just the right amount for such an awesome week of releases!

brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Hahaha M’s super incriminating purchase page! but good purchases!!! It’s okay, E, it happens to the best of us. Amazing events! So much fun. It’s hard when they’re all back-to-back but it’s also just like a whirlwind of amazing! And YAY Open Road Summer finally arrived! Yessss!

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - Not going to lie – seeing all these beautiful books in one post has made me feel a little better about the fact that I went book buying crazy this month. SO MANY PRE-ORDERS, y’all. And then, you know, lots of unplanned purchases that I couldn’t resist… and I can’t even blame it on attending any signings.

Also, I just grabbed Pointe from the library this week per E’s rec. Hope I get to it before it’s due back!

Ginger @ GReads! - Look at all those beautiful books! I’m jealous, Estelle, that you got to attend Jenny Han’s pub party. From the pics I saw, it looked like such a good time! Also, that comment about her sister & christmas morning.. COMPLETELY agree with that. Magan, I want updates when you read Corey’s book!

PS, Teen Book Con is this weekend, so I’m sure I’ll have a post similar to this one sometime next week with all my book purchases! Can’t wait!

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I don’t think you guys picked up too many books at all. Of course, I might not be the best person to ask that question 🙂

That’s awesome that there were so many book events last week, Estelle. Magan, I haven’t read Unremembered, but it’s definitely on my list. I got to see Jessica Brody at the Rochester Teen Book Fest last year, and she was a fun speaker.

Enjoy all your goodies and happy reading! 🙂

New York City Teen Author Festival Recap: Part 1

During the last week of March, I depended on Lara Bars for dinner sustenance and headed downtown for a bunch of New York City Teen Author Festival events! Of course, I made sure to make an appearance because a) there were so many authors participating that I have grown to love b) I wanted to […]

Estelle - Hi Pat! There’s a huge signing at the end of the weekend and you can go to that and get your books signed. I’m sure at the smaller events authors would oblige but some of these events are held at libraries so unless you already have the book… there’s no purchasing being done. Hope that helps!

Pat - Hi! Were you able to get autographs from your favorite authors?

June 18, 2012 - 12:03 am

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I’m very jealous that you got to go! It sounds like it was an amazing event. Hopefully I get to go (along with you, of course) next year!

elena - eeep I would love to read those 150 pages Morgan Matson cut out, especially if it meant more Amy and Roger scenes. I didn’t know David Levithan edited The Hunger Games, what a cool fact! These events sound like so much fun, thank you for sharing. Can’t wait to read your next part!

April 12, 2012 - 4:26 pm

Jess @ Gone with the Words - I LOVE any panels where David Levithan is present! So I would have been too busy hanging on his every word to take notes, haha. I always intended to take notes at this things and always forget, so good job, Estelle! 😀

Ghenet Myrthil - Great recap! My TBR list is exploding with all the books I want to read, after attending this festival. 🙂

April 12, 2012 - 3:29 pm

Ginger @ GReads! - Ok I seriously want to read those 150 pages that Morgan Matson cut out of Amy & Roger! Gah! and there’s no way that trip could ever be too long.

Sounds like you had an amazing time Estelle! Wish I could have been there, too.
