Today we’re hosting a dinner party so I’m glad you are here because the guests of honor are awesome. All four of them have books releasing this month, and were kind enough to attend this potluck get-together at a pretty late hours. (Wink wink; thanks ladies!) It’s been awhile since we’ve had a get-together like […]

Big Kids' Table | The Best and Most Surprising of 2014 - […] quick announcement: I’m changing up Big Kids’ Table again in 2015 (I hinted to it slightly in last month’s post) and if you want to share your non-YA recs in this capacity, I would love to hear from you. Email […]

Alexa S. - This is such a fun twist on the Big Kids’ Table feature! I thoroughly enjoyed hearing from your “guests”, and I definitely think that their books + the books they recommended sound interesting too. You should definitely do this again 🙂

Lucy - Everly After caught my eye! Thanks for the great recs.

Leah - 🙂 🙂 🙂 YOU KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT BKT!
Somehow I’ve gone through life without ever reading White Oleander. Maybe I should fix that?? + forever recommending ANYTHING by Christopher Moore! He’s crass and hilarious and just plain good.

Alexa S. - How very intriguing! I haven’t read New Money, but I kind of want to just so I can read Independently Wealthy next. I know that you really enjoy her writing, and I totally trust your opinion on books – so I’ll definitely be checking these out at some point 🙂

December 6, 2014 - 1:26 pm

Lucy - Lovely description of Savannah. This book was so much fun! Glad you enjoyed it too 🙂

December 4, 2014 - 9:32 am

Meg - Just started this one last night! I liked New Money well enough, but many parts of it just felt rushed and too much “tell, not show.” I have a hunch I’m going to like this one better! Savannah is a fun character, and I’m looking forward to the adventures finding their way to D.C.!

September 18, 2013 - 2:54 am

Alexa Y. - Watching your video makes me miss you more!!! But I will be back soon, so we will have to meet up at some point. Anyway, great haul of books! Can’t wait to hear what you think of Roomies 🙂

September 3, 2013 - 10:33 am

Rachel - AWW I love watching your videos because then I can pretend we’re actually in the same place haha. I miss you!! I can’t wait to read Roomies and to hear your thoughts on it because it sounds REALLY good. Also, thanks for the shout out! 🙂

September 2, 2013 - 11:47 am

September 1, 2013 - 6:13 pm

Bookworm1858 - Ooh Roomies-I’m really excited to learn more about that one as i adore the sound of its concept and that it’s written in emails.

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - Well, I already left this comment earlier, but I totally bought this book because of your review! I already liked the cover, but finding out more about it, hearing from the author and knowing you enjoyed it totally sold me on getting a copy!

August 13, 2013 - 2:36 pm

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - I’m so happy you liked this one because I am really excited for it. Other Words for Love was kind of a sleeper book for me, I didn’t realize quite how much I liked it until right at the end and then I was kind of blown away by it. Great review and interview!

August 11, 2013 - 11:27 am

Alexa Y. - This book sounds like such a fun read! I’m always a fan of books that have 20-something characters (!) who are figuring things out for themselves, especially when done well. This is mostly because I feel like I’m in the same boat! Can’t wait to check out New Money.

Estelle’s Shelve It (Friday Edition): 5/31/2013

I CANNOT believe that tomorrow is June 1. Where oh where is this year going? Hope you guys are keeping cool and gearing up for a fun weekend! It’s been so fun meeting book bloggers who are here in NYC for BEA. Like a complete whirlwind of a week actually. I’ll be so sad to […]

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - So so glad to have met you this weekend!!! 🙂

June 2, 2013 - 1:59 pm

Paige - I’m so jealous of Criminal I read her first book which I’m pretty sure was Being Friends With Boys and I loved it! I hope you enjoy everything you got this week 🙂

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Whoops, hit post before I was done :). I keep hearing great things about Beautiful Ruins, but the cover doesn’t excite me. Maybe the shiny version is better? Regardless, I look forward to hearing what you think, and all about BEA too!!!

May 31, 2013 - 7:53 pm

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Your new glasses are super cute!

May 31, 2013 - 5:10 pm

Tara @ Hobbitsies - Your glasses are super cute! And I had a lot of fun hanging out with you the other night – we should definitely see a show together next time I’m in the city! In the meantime, I’ve got my tickets to the Newsies tomorrow night 🙂

May 31, 2013 - 12:26 pm

Bookworm1858 - Cute dress! I can’t believe it’s almost June either-then it will be almost June 30 and that’s halfway through 2013, one of the fastest years ever in my memory.

May 31, 2013 - 9:50 am

Daphne - yeah, so, thanks for adding to my TBR. 🙂

May 31, 2013 - 9:49 am

Jess @ Gone with the Words - Love the glasses!! I really like that style, and they look good on you. 🙂 I just went and added New Money to my GR wishlist and am totally going to see about reading Criminal soon! 😀 HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!
