Estelle’s Shelve It >> Cinco de Mayo Books

weekly feature to share the books magan and estelle are adding to their bookshelves each week

It’s a little too early for a margarita and some guacamole, but I hope at some point today you are enjoying both!

No v-log today… I stayed with my parents last night and I have total bedhead right now. Not so pretty. But I do have some fun books to share with you! Woot woot!

The best part of this week was definitely going to the Lauren Graham signing at Barnes + Noble. Unfortunately/fortunately, plenty of people got there before Rachel, Alexa, and I and we stood in line without hearing her talk about her new book, Someday, Someday, Maybe BUT after 2 hours, we each got to meet Lauren. She is gorgeous and very sweet in person.

Lauren Graham Someday Someday Maybe Tour and Signing

She was a total rock star because she signed over 500 autographs that night. Definitely the biggest and most popular signing I’ve ever attended! Just to help you (of course), I am going to provide an Amazon link to Lauren’s book because You Really Must Read It.

In other happy news, Heidi from the YA Bibliophile was sweet enough to get me an autographed Sarah Dessen book after I sent her a box of books for a teen summer program!

Signed Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen

I am absolutely in love with the Sarah Dessen cover redesigns + I love that I now have the first one I read/my favorite in my collection. Thanks so much Heidi!

For review, I have these beauties:
