Shelve It: July 15, 2012

Happy, happy Sunday, friends! I hope you’ve had an awesome weekend so far. Saturday was one of THE BEST Saturday’s we have had – it was a complete day off full of relaxing, meeting up with friends, going to our neighborhood pool, and planning for a new project we want to do on a wall in […]

Markella - I need need to read The Forsaken! The cover really drew me in! Can’t wait to hear what else you thought about it.

Thanks for stopping by my post 🙂

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - M, you are SO ADORABLE. Like seriously! And the books you got this week all sound great. I’m especially jealous of Perfect Chemistry – so many people have been recommending it to me!

Also, I’m reading Who I Kissed soon too. We MUST chat about it!

July 16, 2012 - 9:30 am

Amy @ Book Loving Mom - I have been wanting to read the Perfect Chemistry series for a while. It sounds really good. Hex Hall too. The Forsaken sounds awesome, can’t wait to see what you think. Thank you for stopping my my blog. 🙂

VeganYANerds - Ooops! Forgot to thank you for the lovely shout out 🙂 <3

July 16, 2012 - 6:31 am

VeganYANerds - Sounds like you had a really great weekend, hun!

I think Simone’s books are quite fun, and a bit cheesy but that’s part of the appeal. And I have read SO many good reviews of the hex Hall series, I am determined to read them this year.

Your books from ALA sound good, especially Through to Me and Insignia – I got it this week too and while it doesn’t sound like something I’d normally choose, I keep reading about how good it is!

elena - YAY FOR SLEEPING IN!! I <3 Half Price Books too, sad that there isn't one here though. My cousin always jokes I should just own a HPB. I LOVE HEX HALL and I really hope you will too! I think Demonglass was what made me really love the series though. I agree about the authors thing, the power of technology! Also hmm, Who I Kissed has a certainly interesting summary. I've heard good things about Insignia, can't wait to read it. I think The Forsaken has a really pretty cover. I hope you had a fantastic weekend, Magan! x

sarah@catchingbooks - Awesome books this week!! I hope you enjoy them all 😀

Happy reading and thanks for stopping by!!

July 15, 2012 - 8:43 pm

Tara - How sweet are you to mention my giveaway?! xoxoxo love you girls!

I can’t wait to hear what you think about Hex Hall… that’s a book I’ve had sitting on my shelf for ages and for some reason have never picked it up.

July 15, 2012 - 5:39 pm

Sharon - A wonderful haul! I loved Perfect Chemistry & Hex Hall, I hope you do as well 🙂 I can’t wait to read Insignia, it sounds amazing..

Happy reading & thanks for stopping by.

Alison - I’ve heard good things about Hex Hall as well but haven’t read it yet. I hope you enjoy it as much as everyone else does!

July 15, 2012 - 3:17 pm

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - Ah, Half Price Books. That store will be the death of my parent’s wallets!! 😉 Anyways, I loved Hex Hall, I am sure you will fall in love as well, Magan! I can’t believe you haven’t read it already!! I’m excited to see what you think about Insignia and Through to You- both look totally amazing. I’ll keep an eye out for your reviews. =)

Enjoy all those books, Magan! <3

July 15, 2012 - 2:52 pm

Christy - The Forsaken and Through to you looks really interesting. Thanks for stopping by my Stacking the Shelves

July 15, 2012 - 2:33 pm

manda-rae - Hex Hall and Perfect Chemistry; I will pick those two up one day (it’s all about will power). And I’ve heard a lot of good things about Insignia from multiple people, but I still don’t know if I’m sold on the book’s premise enough to read it. I’ll be on the lookout for your review.

Thanks for visiting my haul.

July 15, 2012 - 2:21 pm

Olivia @Nerdy Book Reviews - This looks like a great haul of books. I’ve heard lots of things about Hex Hall, so I hope you enjoy that one in particular.

Some of the others aren’t quite as familiar to me, but have a good week and happy reading too! 🙂

July 15, 2012 - 1:27 pm

Sash from Sash and Em - 1. Insignia, YAY!!!!!!! So good!

Anna - okay you are officially lowercased again xoxo

July 15, 2012 - 5:03 am

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - Hi Magan! Always nice to watch your Shelve It posts! I love your bookshelf, by the way! So organized!

I featured Insignia in my Sunday post as well! I just met S.J. Kincaid at the Dark Days signing in SLC on Wednesday, and she told me all about her book. It sounds like a lot of fun, and she is super nice. I’m excited to read my copy as well! We’ll have to compare notes. 🙂

I’m still working my way through Flirting in Italian. You’ve intrigued me enough with the train wreck of an ending, that I’ve decided to trudge through it to see what happens. Then I’ll be starting in on Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown.

Have fun reading!

Sash and Em - 1. YOUR SHELVES ARE SO PRETTY!

2. Hope you’re feeling better!

3. Super jealous of your NetGalley haul. We need to clear our queue so that we don’t feel guilty about requesting books. 😛

February 13, 2012 - 5:35 pm

Karen - The entire time I was watching this vlog I wanted to go sit in that room. It looks so relaxing.
I Haven’t bought many books since ALA. Just a couple. I need to tackle this pile!
I hope you feel better soon.

February 13, 2012 - 6:08 am

April Books & Wine - The List looks so fantastic!

SO does Take A Bow.

Basically, it looks like you got some fantastic contemporary reads this week 🙂

February 12, 2012 - 7:03 pm

Alison (AlisonCanRead) - Great set! I won Take A Bow in a giveaway. I can’t wait to start it.

Andrea @The Bookish Babes - Great mailbox! I’ve heard Article 5 is really good. I think I would like to read The Disenchantments at some point. Thanks for sharing. Feel better!

February 12, 2012 - 4:58 pm

VeganYANerds - Oh Magan, you poor thing. I hope you’re drinking lots of ginger and lemon tea, that always helps when I’m sick plus ginger, garlic, VitC tablets 🙂

You have some great books this week, I’d like to read The Disenchantments and This is Not A Test, they sound great!

February 12, 2012 - 2:32 pm

Kristin Clifton - Way to “suck it up” girlie!! 🙂 You look great for being sick!! I hope you feel better!

Article 5 does look great! I didn’t realize it was hardcover but it definitely looks worthy 😉

Hope you have a better week this week… thanks for visiting me!

Magan - Aww, thanks Ginger! I can’t wait to meet you tomorrow! I’m looking forward to ALA. I have way more books than I know what to do with right now.

January 19, 2012 - 1:14 pm

Magan - Thanks, Brittani! YEP! I was shocked it had the book too. I think my library has a decent selection of books, but it’s a matter of reserving them and waiting. Thanks so much for your awesome comment!

January 19, 2012 - 1:12 pm

Magan - Oh, great to know, Heather! I don’t know when I’ll read Dying to Know You. I need to make a list of the order in which I’d like to read everything.

January 19, 2012 - 1:10 pm

Magan - Hi Alison! Thanks for the comment! I am starting Wanderlove right now. I’m so excited to read it!

January 19, 2012 - 1:09 pm

Magan - April, I cried huge crocodile tears. I loved Before I Fall so much. I haven’t been able to start another book yet that I’m super in love with. I quit reading one last night because it didn’t compare. 🙂

January 19, 2012 - 1:04 pm

Magan - Mands, I’m sad you didn’t like Mara Dyer. I always get really nervous when there’s lots of hype about a book. I hope I love it!

January 16, 2012 - 8:23 pm

Mands - Great IMM! I didn’t like Mara Dyer, after all the hype it let me down big time but I would like to read Across the Universe.

January 16, 2012 - 3:27 pm

April Books & Wine - I shall forever love the library!

Before I Fall is SO good. I’m glad that you are loving it so far. And yes, have tissues handy.

AND ALSO THE FAULT IN OUR STARS! WHOO HOO!

January 15, 2012 - 9:52 pm

Alison - Great set! Before I Fall is so wonderful. I really want to read Wanderlove.

Heather Rosdol - I LOVED Daughter of Smoke and Bone, too!! It’s one of my favorites.

I got Dying to Know You and just sort of tested it out (I have a few to read before I get to it) and it’s really good!

Have fun reading!!

Heather

January 15, 2012 - 6:34 pm

Brittani - Awesome IMM Magan! Your library has Before We Fall? I’m jealous. I’ve been wanting to read it but neither of the libraries I go to have a copy. Mara Dyer is amazing!!! I really enjoyed that book! I have Across The Universe checked out from the library currently too! Lol. Enjoy all your books! 🙂

Ginger @ GReads! - Magan! You are so super cute!! 🙂 Loved “seeing” your face, hehe. I feel like I am one of the last people to read Across the Universe. I bought it a year ago & it’s been sitting on my shelf. I know, bad me!
