Magan’s Shelve It for March 10, 2013

Oh, hello there. It’s been a while since I did a vlog for Shelve It. My weekends have been disgustingly busy since January, but here I am — enjoying a nice, quiet, rainy Saturday at home. (Hooray!!!) I just finished up one of the books I bought this week (Sean Griswold’s Head) last night so […]

Lena @ Addicted 2 Novels - I have REQUIEM, too! TWINSIES!!!

Amazon needs to deliver my copy of THINGS I CAN’T FORGET already before I completely lose it. AHHHH! AHHHH!!!!

Anywho, let me know what you think of them!

Alexa Y. - M! I love your lipstick, and you look so pretty ๐Ÿ™‚ Nice to see you back on video.

Sounds like you’ve gotten a great selection of books this week. I’m especially curious about The Academy, as it sounds like something I’d enjoy. I’m loving these sports-centered books (which also reminds me that I need to read Miranda’s books!).

Lisa the Nerd - Hello, beautiful! Yay for the vlog! I do need to read Sean Griswold’s Head too. I like your cover MUCH better than the hardcover…that helps it bump up my TBR too! ๐Ÿ™‚

Magan - Aneeqah — you’re so sweet! Thanks, lady! It is so windy at our house too! CRAZY windy. We tried to go for a run this afternoon and I felt like I was having to work twice as hard. Needless to say, it was more of a run/walk! ๐Ÿ˜‰ You definitely do need to read a Miranda Kenneally book. They’re all fantastic. Read them in order because the characters make appearances and they all take place in the same town. I’m so glad you’re nervous about Requiem too. Thanks for your comment! Have a great spring break!

Magan - Margie — you don’t know how much your comment made me excited. I was wondering if there was even the slightest chance I’d feel excited. I almost feel like I knew that maybe the ending wouldn’t be super happy or perfect, but I almost expect that. Lauren is a brilliant author so I don’t want/expect her to take the easy way out by tying everything up perfectly. Does that even make sense? haha

Magan - Oh, G. You’re so right. I should have included a song. I’m playing his CD right now if that counts? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Magan - Bookworm — I wish I had spring break too. Oh to be back in college again! ๐Ÿ™ I will be writing my review for SGH shortly. I loved it so much! So glad you did too!

March 10, 2013 - 5:56 pm

Magan - Jen — The Academy: Game On doesn’t have a cover on Netgalley so maybe it hasn’t stood out? I am so glad you’re going to request it! I’m glad you’re feeling the same way about Requiem. Seems so iffy. AHHH. And yes, SGH was so, so good. Glad you loved it too!

Magan - Mandee, somehow I had never heard of Sean Griswold’s Head — I don’t see it around on the blogosphere very much. It’s a few years old so maybe that’s why, but wow — so good! Hope you had a lovely weekend!

March 10, 2013 - 3:04 pm

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - Magan, your v-logs are always so great to watch!! It was nice and stormy here last night as well, and now it’s just plain windy! So it’s definitely a great time to cuddle up with a book. And thank GOODNESS that I’m finally on spring break, and you’re totally right, I don’t even know what I’m going to do with my life without homework, haha. ๐Ÿ˜‰

But anyways, I really need to pick up a Miranda Kenneally book, especially because you’ve read all but this one! And I’m totally on the same boat as you for Requiem- I want to read it so badly, yet I don’t want to either. I’m scared that it’s going to disappoint such a great series for me.

Anyways, lovely haul, Magan! Enjoy your books and have a fantastic, relaxing weekend. <3

Margie aka The Bumble Girl - Great books, Magan! I really loved REQUIEM! Not at first, but the more I read, the more I was liking it all! And the end, which seems to be everyone’s issues, lol, I loved and can live with it! In fact, I want to rip the last page out and frame it… might have to do that to a paperback (eeep!)
Enjoy your new reads! xo

Ginger @ GReads! - The only thing missing from this vlog… PHILLIP PHILLIPS hahaha. Seriously. He would have been a great soundtrack ๐Ÿ˜‰

Bookworm1858 - Oh how I wish I had a spring break-I would love to spend a lot more time reading! Alas the workweek calls to me ๐Ÿ™ Looking forward to your review of Sean Griswold’s Head-it’s one of my favorite books.

Jen - Oooooh! Game On looks adorable. Why haven’t I seen this on NetGalley? I will definitely go and request like, immediately. And YAY, Requiem, though I am petrified by everyone’s lukewarm reviews. I still have to read Pandemonium, so I think I’m going to be binging on this series some weekend in the near future! And YAY, Sean Griswold’s Head. FANTASTIC book.

VeganYANerds - Sean Griswold’s Head sounds so good, I’m sure I’ve heard of it before but I must have forgotten about it. Love that you stayed up reading it & I am a fan of heavy/sad books.

I’m looking forward to Requiem, but I’m not jumping up and down for it. I hope it doesn’t let you down!

Enjoy your weekend off xox
