Cassidy - This book was so sweet and amazing, I couldn’t stop reading it. I read it on my kindle and I’m pretty sure I ruined my eyesight for reading on the screen for hours everyday but I don’t regret it at all!

February 14, 2015 - 1:57 pm

Siobhain - My favorite love story the notebook! Nicholas sparks is so talented and can watch this movie so many times and cry every time

Lisa @ Reading, Writing, and Random Musings - As someone who is newly unexpectedly single, I love to hear stories of how you just never know when you will meet the person you are destined to be with! Thanks for sharing such a heart warming story on such a heart warming day!

Aislyn - This is so sweet!!!

Shelve It: Obsessed With the Library

HAPPY SUNDAY! Did you guys have the best weekend? I sure hope so. I’m writing this early so I’m trying to predict the future. I am going to have fun catching up with Maggie on Saturday afternoon. I will read two of my library books and one of my actual review copies. I’ll be sure […]

Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan - […] and never get to because after all this time, I still have not read her debut. (Don’t worry; I have it out from the library right now.) So Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel was my first taste of her work and I totally get what […]

October 8, 2014 - 11:39 pm

Alexa S. - YOU LOOK SO CUTE! I really love the haircut, and I really like your dress too! Also, I really loved Rites of Passage! I hope you enjoy it as much as Magan, Rachel and I all did (and I’ll be curious to hear what you think when you’re done). Also, I just read and loved Rain Reign! Rose Howard is a great heroine 🙂 AND, finally, I’m still sad about missing that event (though obviously hanging out with husband at DISNEY was the best excuse ever!) because it sounded so darn fab. Glad you had a good time!

October 7, 2014 - 12:32 pm

Jess @ Gone with the Words - First, your hair DOES look totally cute! And alone would be my main requirement if I ever decided to do videos. I also LOVED How To Tell Toledo From The Night Sky so I hope you like it! And I really want to read a Kieran Scott book soon because you love her. 🙂

October 6, 2014 - 11:30 am

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - Your hair and your outfit do look cute! And yay for library love. But those covers do make it difficult to show them in a video. The lights glare off them.

I really thought Bright Before Sunrise was adorable. I really liked it. I hope you do too, and all your other books.

Happy reading, Estelle.

October 6, 2014 - 12:40 am

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - so worth the wait — you’re adorable, as always! I’m waiting for my library to get Rites of Passage, because I keep hearing good things :). I just started the Throne of Glass series this week, and am LOVINGLY it so far!

October 5, 2014 - 11:10 pm

Liz - I love your my hair looks cute and I’m wearing a dress logic for vlogging–I feel the same way! I also have How To Tell Toledo From The Night Sky out from the library–I’m reading it now and it’s a little bizarre but good! Bright Before Sunrise didn’t really work for me but a lot of other people have loved it, so I hope you feel the same way. Happy reading!

October 5, 2014 - 6:52 pm

Jessica - Oh my gosh, I’m so jealous you got Wildlife! It’s still on order from my local library at school, but I already have it reserved for when it does finally come in. I went home over the weekend and it was actually in at my library there, but it would have been due way before I went home again in November, so I couldn’t take it. Ugh, I just want to read it! Haha, I hope you enjoy it!! I’ve heard Rites of Passage is fantastic and actually won a copy that should be on its way to me, so I can’t wait to read that one too! I hope you enjoy all you got 🙂

-Jessica (Peace Love Books)

October 5, 2014 - 3:30 pm

Brianna - I’m reading The Curse of Van Gogh by Paul Hoppe for my fun book. Everything else is for school, and while not boring for me, would be dullsville for everyone else.

October 5, 2014 - 10:59 am

Missie - All of your new ones are new to me! Excited for your reviews!
Missie @ A Flurry of Ponderings

October 5, 2014 - 9:24 am

Leah - VERY cute hair! SUUUUPER cute dress! hee, I’m glad you mentioned it – I was actually going to comment on it and ask if it was a shirt or a dress. ♥ I’m crazy about florals right now.

I really enjoyed Bright Before Sunrise! It was my first One Day novel (is that the right term?? idk). I wasn’t too sure how I’d enjoy a story told in 24 hours – especially when there’s a romance involved – but it was good!

Fingers crossed for Wildlife, it’s one that had been on my To Read list for a while & YES for all the LGBT novels coming out! Really looking forward to your thoughts on it.

Tête-à-tête with ONLY EVERYTHING’s Cupid a.k.a. True

Greetings, friends! It’s a special, special day at Rather Be Reading Blog. Contemporary YA author Kieran Scott has granted me special access to the leading lady of her new trilogy, ONLY EVERYTHING. That’s right. Today I am talking to True a.k.a. Cupid. I know, I know… you are wondering why cupid isn’t a chubby little […]

May 3, 2014 - 1:53 am

Alexa S. - Based on the description of True’s character, I could totally see Anna Scott playing her role in a movie! After reading this adorable + fun interview, I’m definitely excited to read Only Everything. It sounds like it’s going to be so fun!

April 30, 2014 - 10:06 pm

brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Super cute! I also think Anna Scott is so adorable so I love the comparison!
I’m so hesitant about Greek mythology just because I haven’t done well with mythology adaptations lately so they’re not high on my list as of now, but this sounds really fun and totally different! Definitely keeping it on my radar 🙂

April 24, 2014 - 11:26 am

Karen H. - I want go read this book because Kieran Scott wrote it! I love all her books and I think this series will be amazing, just like her other ones.

April 23, 2014 - 10:15 am

Daphne - this is great! it sounds like a fantastic book & I want it now! 🙂 i love a light-hearted mythology book.

April 22, 2014 - 8:03 pm

Danielle @ Love at First Page - I have been loving the fluffy contemporary YA books coming out this year, and glad to hear this is in the same vein!

But, mm, NOT happy about dissing Andrew and Emma! They are so cute together! Especially in interviews. <3

Shelve It: Zac Efron and Breaking Book Bans

Hiya! Tell me if I’m alone: you know you have to do a v-log but you are either not showered, just came back from the gym, or too darn tired to collect the books all over your apartment. This was me, so now it’s Sunday morning and I’m giving you a pajama party v-log. My […]

Leah - I can DEFINITELY get behind pj party vlogs!

Okay Liza Palmer – I need to see what all the fuss is about! At this point I think I’m the only person who hasn’t read her stuff. I’ve checked a few times and my library has a few of her books, next time I stop by I’ll have to (finally) pick one up!

Your guess is as good as mine when it comes to how to pronounce Moyes. I default to Moy-es, though I’ve heard others say Moys. 🙁 Who knows!

February 27, 2014 - 2:16 pm

Alexa S. - I still think you look pretty cute, E! I rarely have makeup on in my vlogs, so I think I’m just used to being on camera without it at this point 😉 Anyway, your book buying to break your ban sounds epic! HAPPY READING. (PS – Read Brooklyn Girls! I’m reading the sequel now and it’s SO FUN.)

February 24, 2014 - 12:06 pm

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - So I’m at work right now, so I can’t watch your vlog 🙁

I’ll have to watch it when I get home. I’ve only done a few vlogs, but not in ages, because, like you, I’m in my PJs and just not looking good. Although from the thumbnail, you are looking very glamorous and I LOVE your glasses.

I had decided to NOT request The Geography of Me and You, because I’m trying to not go crazy with the requesting of ARCs, but I totally caved and requested it the other day.

February 24, 2014 - 7:36 am

Alice - Brilliant haul Estelle! 😀 😀 SO jealous of the gorgeous books. Pajama party vlogs are awesome! Who cares anymore anyway. You gotta vlog when you gotta vlog. 😉 And your hair looked fabulous in it anyway. No biggie at all!

February 23, 2014 - 6:11 pm

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - I love watching your v-logs, and honestly wouldn’t notice (or care) if your hair was messy! Looks like some great books for you this week … I hadn’t heard about the controversy over September Girls, but I’m not super interested in mermaid books anyways, so it wasn’t on my radar to begin with. But I’ll look forward to reading your review!

Also, YAY — I’m SO glad that you read (and loved) Me Before You. That was, hands down, one of my favourite reads of 2013 and I’m looking forward to reading some more of her books.

I’ve read Smack and Doing It by Melvin Burgess. He’s definitely a very “out there” YA writer because he writes about really heavy topics. I thought for some reason that he was dead, but I guess not if he’s coming out with new books?

February 23, 2014 - 4:47 pm

April Books & Wine - The Geography Of You And Me has such delicious prose, I hope you love it!

MATTHEW QUICK! My 2013 favorite!

Hah, I have not done a vlog in months because I am always just coming in from the gym or in PJs or do not feel like putting on makeup. It’s awkward. Alas.

Enjoy the new books!

February 23, 2014 - 3:29 pm

The Bookish Manicurist - I have done the same thing with September Girls, I added it, removed it, and now I want to add it again. I think I let negative reviews put me off a little too quickly!

Good to see your face, lady 😉

Sweet Summertime Reads: The Yearbook

Welcome back for another Sweet Summertime Reads post. As summer winds down, stores fill up with huge school supplies displays that make us yearn for the days we’d be doing our school shopping and prepping for our first days of school. So this week, Ginger, Tara, and the two of us are focusing on going […]

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - THIS POST IS EVERYTHING AWESOME! I loved your comments on the different aspects of going back to school, and I’m in love with your superlatives and graphics! Y’all are always coming up with such great new ideas and posts! Love that about your blog :0

August 28, 2013 - 11:18 am

Alexa Y. - THIS POST IS MADE OF WIN. I’m sorely tempted to leave my comment at that, but seriously, you girls just NAILED IT. I love your choices for your back to school reading selections, and the categories you filed them under! Such spot on recommendations. Gotta definitely check out the ones I haven’t yet read!

August 15, 2013 - 4:12 pm

katy - Band Geek Love sounds so great! I wasn’t in Band but I was the only one in my group of friends who wasn’t, so I felt like I was. I knew all the drama and sat with the band during their quarter off during football games and the band directors knew me. Queen of Kentucky and Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe sound cute and fun!

August 15, 2013 - 11:34 am

Candice @ The Grown-Up YA - Fun post! I loved when it was time to go back to school. There was always something so exciting and fresh about it, despite the fact that I’d been there for a month already with band camp! I never thought about all the new friends I’d make, but rather all the old friends I’d get to see again. And shopping… whoa I LOVED it! Even though I really was a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal in high school, buying new clothes and pens was my favorite!

Sweet Summertime Reads: It’s Back to School Time! | Fiction Folio - […] some books that take place during the school year and Magan & Estelle featured some of their favorite books about going back to school. Today, I’m going to share some books I think will either help you get back into that school […]

August 13, 2013 - 11:01 pm

Lucy @ The Reading Date - Hey, I was a band geek too! I played the flute in marching band in hs. Now I really need to read Band Geek Love.
Your post is very timely – we’re getting ready for back to school shopping this week.
Love your back to school book choices. Reece Malcolm is a fave, and I’m eager to check out Winger too. Good stuff as always!

August 13, 2013 - 8:22 pm

Tara @ Hobbitsies - You guys always have the prettiest freaking posts. Can you do all the graphics for my blog too? HAHA.

Anyway, I saw Winger at the bookstore today and was SO CLOSE to buying it. Man, now I want to go back to it. A million times yes to Queen of Kentucky and Going Vintage – loved both of those. Somehow I haven’t read the rest of the books on this post, but I need to! Moving some of these up on my TBR list 🙂

August 13, 2013 - 7:26 pm

Rose @ The Bedtime Bookworm - I feel like I should read more YA contemporary, and I already thought I read quite a bit of it. I haven’t read any of these books! I have a few of them on my TBR list.

I can definitely relate to what Estelle wrote about back to school shopping – I did all of my clothes shopping with my mum (mostly because she’d buy me shoes. That’s a good reason, right??). The only problem was that my mum would conveniently forget that we were there to buy clothes for me, not her! She’d usually end up with a pile for herself double the size of my pile, though we were both expert sales shoppers!

August 13, 2013 - 10:02 am

Ginger @ GReads! - I like how we both chose Reece Malcolm List for a ‘back to school’ pick 🙂 hehe. Such a great book! This was a fun post ladies. I’ve heard a lot about Dairy Queen.. and anything related to FNL is a definite win for me!

elena - AWW this sounds totally QT! I do like it when characters are forced to work in teams and then chemistry happens! also, I misread the last one and was excited for the film but I HOPE IT WILL HAPPEN TOO.

December 12, 2012 - 5:08 pm

Alexa Y. - Ooh, a Christmas book! I think I should read this one, just to get even more into the spirit of the holidays. It sounds cute!

December 12, 2012 - 12:50 pm

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - A teen patron at the library where I work has raved about this one. I should pick it up. It’s the right time for it. 🙂

December 12, 2012 - 9:53 am

Ginger @ GReads! - I’ve been looking for a few Christmas books to read next & I’ve decided to add this one to the list! It sounds like the perfect story to get me in the mood for Christmas (even though I already am! hehe).

December 12, 2012 - 9:41 am

Cassie - This sounds so good! “Pacey and Joey like scenario” got me, they’re my fave! But I dont think its available for the Nook 🙁

December 12, 2012 - 9:36 am

Christina (A Reader of Fictions) - So I don’t really read Christmas stories, and I’ll probably stick to that, but you totally sell this. I am such a sap for stories about two people who mostly loathe one another having a change of heart. I blame Jane Austen for that!

December 12, 2012 - 9:29 am

Cynthia - This sounds like a fun one! I’ve been looking for some Christmas related books to read this month, I’ll be adding this one to my list. =)
