Katie @ Blook Girl - I also have Kissing Shakespeare and Intentions and hope they turn out to be as good as they look/sound! Can’t wait to get to them 🙂

I’ve been convinced, yet again, by Magan’s review for Second Chance Summer, and hope to have that on my own shelf this week!

Enjoy all the lovelies! <3

elena - Your cat is qt! Casual hanging, I like it. Starring Me sounded like something I would read until the religion part. I’m not a religious person either and it makes me uncomfortable. Hooray for Second Chance Summer. Also I am so glad you liked Divergent! 😀 😀 I think I should give Lovestruck Summer a chance before Unbreak My Heart, which I’m excited for.

Estelle - Annette, so glad to hear that about Friendship Bread! Perhaps it will get me out of my baking rut! 😉 Thanks for stopping by!

Annette - I really enjoyed Friendship bread, and did go on a bread-making kick after reading it! Enjoy your books!

Estelle - M, so glad you noticed my nails. I was hoping you would. The color is a lot like guacamole and Kermit the Frog (which my dad commented on today). So glad you added a few of the books to your list! I can’t wait to hear what you think. I’ve been lucky to read some great stuff lately! xo

VeganYANerds - I was wondering when your vlog would be up, it’s great to see you and Candy, what a cutie! And, I love your green nails, LOVE!

You got some great books on NG, I added a couple to my list and I can’t wait to read Second Chance Summer and Lovestruck Summer, the both sound great!

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - Aww, this sounds really cute! I would definitely want to give this one a read.

Meredith - I too, LOVE The Mysterious Benedict Society Series!! Such clever, witty books! I’ve been reading more Middle Grade lately so I’ll have to check this one out! Thanks for the review! 🙂

VeganYANerds - This does sound like a really sweet story! I find some middle grade books are just aimed to young for me but some of them are still entertaining for adults and it’s always great to discover one!

April 11, 2012 - 4:23 pm

elena - I remember seeing this during the YA Scavenger Hunt and thought it looked super cute! I don’t really read a lot of middle grade books (P.S. glad you love the Mysterious Benedict Society because I have those on my shelf right now!) but when I do, I think they’re delightful. I’m glad that Seeing Cinderella falls under the same category! This sounds like such a sweet book, I love that it’s fully fleshed out and you could still relate to Callie. Lovely review, Magan. 🙂

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - This sounds like it’s going to be fun to read! I can’t wait to check it out for myself. After all, you did mention Harry Potter haha.

VeganYANerds - Great review, Estelle! I’m usually wary of middle-grade books because sometimes they feel too young for me but it’s nice to find some that are suitable for adults too, I’ll check this out if I see it in my local library.
