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: Upcoming Nook/Kindle Reads

It’s Sunday! Woo! Just wanted to express our heartfelt thanks to all of you who left us comments, tweeted us, etc. for our 2-year blog anniversary. We have definitely been riding a high all week, and even more so because our first Twitter Chat was absolutely so much fun and we can’t wait to do it again. […]

Alexa Y. - Wow! You girls have got quite an amazing selection of books. I think I’m most looking to Love Letters to the Dead and Going Rogue, which I have too!

November 11, 2013 - 3:42 pm

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - Corinne Demas was my first year seminar professor in college. I requested Returning to Shore on NG, but got declined. Which is fine, I more just wanted to read it because I hated her as a professor, haha.

November 10, 2013 - 12:31 pm

Lucy @ The Reading Date - Lots of great looking 2014 titles! INK and Going Rogue are a couple I’m eager to read.
Enjoy!

November 10, 2013 - 11:56 am

Bookworm1858 - I have a lot of those same books to read too-they all look so intriguing!

I’m hoping to read some more adult books like Booker winner The Luminaries as well as business/leadership non-fiction to aid in my professional development. So that will make 2014 an interesting mix of YA, MG, even some NA and then adult stuff.

Congrats again on 2 years!

Shelve It: Double the V-Logs

Hey, hey! We’re both here this lovely Sunday with vlogs for you in this week’s Shelve It! We’re going to be celebrating our two year anniversary this week and we wanted to say hello, catch up, and remind you of something fun we have coming up this Tuesday! We’ll be doing a Twitter chat from […]

Young Adult Book Blog: If I Lie by Corrine Jackson - […] mentioned in my Shelve It vlog on Sunday that I was recently in a deep book slump because I was having a really difficult time […]

November 6, 2013 - 5:14 pm

Lena @ Addicted 2 Novels - FINGERPRINTS OF YOU! I EFFING LOVE THAT BOOK!

November 4, 2013 - 5:51 pm

Alexa Y. - Hooray for two years of RBR! I’m so happy that blogging brought us together, as my life would be so less awesome without you both. <3

November 3, 2013 - 11:17 pm

Lisa Schensted - TWO YEARS! YIPEE!
I’m totes on that twitter chat, too! See ya there, homies.

November 3, 2013 - 7:23 pm

Paige - I bought myself a copy of Allegiant a week or two ago and I’m dying to read it! But I’m afraid to because I don’t want the trilogy to end. Good luck with everything Magan! And I hope you both enjoy everything!

Liz (Along for the Read) - Estelle- I hate covers with faces, which is the sole reason that I have not yet purchased or read Just One Year yet. I’m going to hold out for the library copy, and hope that the paperback matches Just One Day (because I also really like that paperback cover)

Magan- I hope everything turns out well with your foster daughter,that must be a roller coaster of emotions, but it is so amazing that you have been able to experience all of that. I’ll be sending good thoughts your way.

I am so looking forward to the RBR chat on Tuesday! Can’t wait to talk to you both!

November 3, 2013 - 1:50 pm

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - Aww, Magan. I hope things go as well as they can with your family. I really liked The Distance Between Us, too. It’s a light sweet read – maybe something you might need right now. I also need to stop buying, and then not reading my books.

Estelle – Prom & Prejudice is super cute. I don’t love all of Elizabeth Eulberg’s books, but that one is at the top of my list. I also really like The Lonely Heart’s Club. When I have a down day, I like to head to the book store, too.

I’m writing myself a reminder right now for your Twitter Chat. Congrats on two years of blogging!

Estelle + Magan: A Joint Shelve It from Texas!

These last few days, we’ve been together, reunited in Texas. Holy crap, you guys! It’s been amazing. But as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. Estelle left yesterday afternoon to head back to NYC and Magan spent the remainder of the day crying. Every time we see each other, we […]

Alexa Y. - GIRLS! It makes me so very happy that you are (well, were now, considering I’m commenting late) together in Texas. I loved the reunion, and that I could see you and hear you both on my computer. Miss you girls! Hope you had a FABULOUS time together.

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - Stopping by really quick to say that I absolutely loved watching this the other night. I felt like I was watching TV or something with my Summer Shandy (I never watch TV). I was all comfy with my drink and watching my pals and I was smiling and text-bombing poor E. It was a good time for me. I loved it. I’ll be back later for a real comment-bomb, I just wanted to say high again and I loved seeing you two on the same screen again. You both are so lovely and I love hearing your voices at the same time. So much fun! I made Mike stop listening to youtube and watch for a second and he was all WHAT!? – he just didn’t really GET IT. Haha, men. xo

August 7, 2013 - 3:49 pm

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Awwwwww I know how you feel! I cried at the airport after BEA just leaving all my blogging friends (and Alyssa in particular!!) and it’s just so hard to say goodbye to your close friend not knowing when you’ll reunite again! But I’m so glad you guys got to spend some great time together and I love seeing the two of you in one video! Very fun 🙂
xoxo

August 7, 2013 - 11:44 am

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Aww — you two are SO adorable!!! I love seeing videos of the two of you together :). I’m a recent Levithan fan, but I’m going to check out the one you recommended, Estelle. After Fingerprints, I trust your recommendations sooooo much!!!

August 7, 2013 - 10:26 am

Hazel - It’s so nice to see the two of you together in a vid!!! Magan, I’m so happy to hear you loved the Shatter Me series. It’s one of my fave dystopians. :’) And your foster daughter sounds really adorable!!!! Estelle, I love the books you mentioned. I’m so excited to get to read them. I’m quite a fan of Levithan myself and I really do suggest you read Everyday already! Great post, you guys!! <3
