Estelle: Shelve It (10/28/2012)

Edit: Thanks to Jamie (Perpetual Page Turner) I just bought Blackberry Winter by Sarah Joi for my Nook. Only $2.99! (Amazon too!) Guess what? I bought absolutely no books since my last Shelve It. NONE. But I did buy a lot of shelves to put in our new apartment. So that sort of counts, right? […]

April Books & Wine - I’ve been pretty lax about buying books lately too.

I hope you are okay in the wake of Sandy!

VeganYANerds - Horray for moving and putting up new shelves, soon you can buy lots more books to put on them!

And yay for polish-buying! I *think* Julep are cruelty free/vegan so I’m going to see if I can find them here 🙂

And be careful hun, stay safe!

Tara - Please, please, PLEASE be careful this week with Sandy! At least the positive out of this is that you get to read lots and not have to go to work 🙂

elena - if i want chocolate just reading your review, i can’t imagine actually reading the book! although it’s not the perfect book by any means, it does sound pretty cute. a delicious review, e!

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - This book sounds incredibly cute! I adore the fact that it’s about chocolate, which is one of my favorite things in the whole entire universe. And I can always get down with a story of an underdog business struggling to survive and a small town coming together to make it happen!

Lori - I adore books set cute little towns. I think it’s my love of Stars Hollow coming through. This sounds great. I’m sad to hear there’s not more romance. Like Melissa, I’m sold from the cover alone.

Estelle - Amber, thanks for commenting today. I hope you do look into the book. Let me know what you think when/if you do!

October 24, 2012 - 3:11 pm

Estelle - Tina, thanks for stopping in! It IS a fun premise! There’s even a few recipes included. Which is a lovely touch!

October 24, 2012 - 3:10 pm

Estelle - Jen, it’s so good to switch up genres. I think you can appreciate your reading so much more! Let me know what you think of this one. 🙂

October 24, 2012 - 3:10 pm

Estelle - Melissa, you are right! The cover is ridiculously cute. There’s another one on GR that is like total opposite but cute too. haha

October 24, 2012 - 3:09 pm

Estelle - Warning!! You will get hungry. VERYYY hungry.

October 24, 2012 - 2:08 pm

Jess @ Gone with the Words - I’m so glad you enjoyed this one as much as you did because I’ll be reading it soon and now I know I’ll mostly likely love it too. 😀 Thanks, Estelle!!

October 24, 2012 - 12:39 pm

Melissa - I hate to admit that I was already sold based upon the cover..but now I really want to pick this one up! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Jen - While I’m not so much a fan of the “perfect, fairytale endings,” I do totally love the way you describe this setting. Plus, chocolate? Yes, please. This book sounds adorable. And while I do read primarily YA, there are some days when a good adult book is exaaaaaactly what’s needed.

Amber - Sounds quite interesting! Might have to look into it!

Tina - This sounds like a fun book for the fall, I love fast little reads about food, cooking and romance…:) Cute review!
