Alexa Y. - Hercules has always been one of my favorite Disney films. I love Greek mythology because of it (most likely, anyway) and I enjoy the soundtrack of that film a LOT. (I’m still obsessed with Go the Distance). I even used to play the game on PS1!

Anyway. I read this book last weekend. It was pretty cute, even if I did think that the balance of contemporary and mythology could have been done better and a few things felt too rushed. My review’s coming up at some point, so there will be more detail on that there. I did like it enough to be entertained though 🙂

Maggie @ Young Adult Anonymous - Who put the glad in gladiator?? Love this review, Estelle.

VeganYANerds - And now I want to watch Hercules!

I really like the sound of Sophie and while I too don’t read too many non-contemps, I think this might be a book I’d like!

Estelle - I am way tempted to dig out my DVD and watch this. Zero to Heroooo.

Estelle - I’m going to have to check that out! I haven’t heard of it + there are never enough quirky characters to go around. 😉 Have a good weekend Kelly!

Kelly - I really enjoyed Sam Cruz’s Infallible Guide to Getting Girls, so I was pretty excited to see a new series from the same author. The things you liked about this – the quirky protagonist and great chemistry – are things I loved about SCIGtGG so hopefully I enjoy this one too!

Bookworm1858 - You’re not the only one-I love Hercules! It’s actually one of my favorite movies of all-time and my most favorite Disney film. I quote it all the time.

Estelle’s Shelve It: 1/6/2013

Oh howdy! And happy new year! Sorry for the lack of v-log tonight, but it’s a busy weekend! Hope you are wrapped up in some good reading, and finding time to relax. Monday begins the first full week in awhile for most of us, I’m guessing? We will need the books to get through! Here’s […]

Estelle - It keeps staring at me on my pile, yelling at me. I will will will get to it soon.

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - OOOHHH I just bought Sweethearts a couple of days ago. Great minds!!

Alexa Y. - I really, really want to read Anatomy of a Single Girl now, since you loved it so much! I’m curious to see how the sequel turns out 😉

April Books & Wine - CAMERON QUICK!

The end.

VeganYANerds - Nice haul! I got Riptide, too! It made me think of Raw Blue but now that you mention it, Blue Crush as well!

And I hope you LOVE Sweethearts, it’s wonderful 😀

The Bumble Girl - The Fifteen Days Without a Head sounds heartbreaking! I was just approved for this one too – the whole “little brother who’s convinced is a dog” tugged at my heart, these poor boys! I am looking forward to sitting with a box of tissues for this story…
Enjoy your new reads 🙂
And happy new year to you both! xo

Tara - GAH Sweethearts! That has been on my radar for ages and I have yet to actually read it.

Hope you get to relax a little bit this weekend 🙂

Lisa the Nerd - Yay for a used bookstore! Even if the YA section was teeny.

January 6, 2013 - 5:14 pm

Amy @ Tripping Over Books - Great books, Estelle! It’s awesome that you have a used book store to plunder, even if the YA section is small. I don’t have anything like that in my neck of the woods. I’m definitely going to have to check out Anatomy of a Single Girl, though. It sounds awesome! And I can’t wait to see what you think of Sweethearts!! Good stuff, friend!

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - Ugh, back to school this week! Although, I do have Monday off, since it’s a Teacher Workday or something. But seriously, it’s been luxurious not having any stress of grades or anything. Whatever the case, I’ll be spending Monday making the most of my time off to blog!! I’m hoping that if I get everything scheduled ahead of time, I’ll have plenty of time to comment and such.

Anyways, you got some good stuff this week, Estelle! Riptide looks really interesting, I think that one is going on my TBR list. I’m excited to read your review of that one, to know if I really should get a copy of it or not. And YAY for discovering a used book store, even if the YA section is small. It seems like you were still able to find some goodies, though! I seriously need to pick up All You Never Wanted, since I’ve seen some seriously gushing reviews.

Fantastic haul, Estelle! Enjoy your lovelies, and GOOD LUCK for a full week back at work! <3 Just remember that working is feeding your book addiction. 😉
