Shelve It: In Which We Buy All the Books

Howdy, friends! We’re both checking in to confess how many books share the books we’ve purchased lately with another Shelve It. It’s been a good, good month for reading and we both, um, went a little overboard. Our wallets are feeling quite depleted, but we’re really excited about all of these and we hope you are, […]

Judith - M, I can’t wait to see what you think of Pointe. I’ve heard AMAZING things about it. I also thoroughly enjoyed Rites of Passage and On the Fence, so I hope you’ll like them.

E, whoa, amazing books! Of course, Open Road Summer is my FAVORITE. I also love the Great cake, and I can’t wait to read that.

Alexa S. - Whee, happy reading ladies! I think I got roughly the same amount of books you each did individually, so we’re good. I’d say we bought just the right amount for such an awesome week of releases!

brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Hahaha M’s super incriminating purchase page! but good purchases!!! It’s okay, E, it happens to the best of us. Amazing events! So much fun. It’s hard when they’re all back-to-back but it’s also just like a whirlwind of amazing! And YAY Open Road Summer finally arrived! Yessss!

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - Not going to lie – seeing all these beautiful books in one post has made me feel a little better about the fact that I went book buying crazy this month. SO MANY PRE-ORDERS, y’all. And then, you know, lots of unplanned purchases that I couldn’t resist… and I can’t even blame it on attending any signings.

Also, I just grabbed Pointe from the library this week per E’s rec. Hope I get to it before it’s due back!

Ginger @ GReads! - Look at all those beautiful books! I’m jealous, Estelle, that you got to attend Jenny Han’s pub party. From the pics I saw, it looked like such a good time! Also, that comment about her sister & christmas morning.. COMPLETELY agree with that. Magan, I want updates when you read Corey’s book!

PS, Teen Book Con is this weekend, so I’m sure I’ll have a post similar to this one sometime next week with all my book purchases! Can’t wait!

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I don’t think you guys picked up too many books at all. Of course, I might not be the best person to ask that question 🙂

That’s awesome that there were so many book events last week, Estelle. Magan, I haven’t read Unremembered, but it’s definitely on my list. I got to see Jessica Brody at the Rochester Teen Book Fest last year, and she was a fun speaker.

Enjoy all your goodies and happy reading! 🙂

Shelve It: Books Books Lots of Books

Hello! How are you guys doing? Spring has finally arrived in New York, and I’m hoping to spend this Saturday in the sunshine! Yay! Hope you all are doing the same! I have lots of books to talk about today since it’s been so long since I posted a SHELVE IT. It’s bad. But I […]

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - So many titles I haven’t heard about before! I’d already put Pointe on my wishlist after your rave Goodreads update, but now you’ve got me intrigued about a few others (especially There Will Come a Time). And I look forward to some of the others being read and reviewed by you!

Liz - I’m so glad you loved POINTE as much as I did! I also recently bought NOGGIN and need to read it. I’m really looking forward to eventually picking up a hardcover of SIDE EFFECTS MAY VARY.

And I love your necklace. I need to get something similar for myself.

April 14, 2014 - 11:04 pm

Alexa S. - I swear, it’s like magic – you recommend something and I immediately know that I want it. I really want to read There Will Come a Time! It sounds incredible. And you already know I have Darcy Lane coming in the mail, and bought Pointe the other day. MORE BOOKS. ALL THE BOOKS.

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - YOU ARE ADORABLE. Seriously. I’m super intrigued by all your five star reads! I love reading amazing book after amazing book — it’s the best! Hope your positive reading binge just keeps going and going 🙂

Stormy - I’m reading The Darkest Minds this weekend–I’ve been hesitant about the book, for some reason, even though it does seem like my kind of book, but I’m really enjoying it!
I’m really curious about This Side of Salvation & Pointe. I am especially in love with the cover for This Side of Salvation. It’s poster-worthy!
And I really hope you enjoy The Art of Wishing–it was one of my most pleasant reading surprises of the year!
