Estelle’s Shelve It >> Cinco de Mayo Books

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! […]

elena - LAUUUUUUREN FREAKING GRAHAM AND SARAH FREAKING DESSENNNNN, my heart. you lucky lucky girl.

May 7, 2013 - 5:33 am

VeganYANerds - Lauren – yay! Lovely photo, hun!

And Sarah Dessen’s new book is out – will defo be buying that in L.A next week!

May 6, 2013 - 3:55 pm

Alexa Y. - I still say that we totally made the best of it and had lots of fun together anyway. It’s always a total treat to see you girls! <3

May 6, 2013 - 8:37 am

Ginger @ GReads! - 2 hours?! Woah. That’s crazy awesome. I adore the new Dessen covers, too. I eventually want to get them all, but right now my bank account is not allowing me to do so lol. You’ll have to tell me how Some of Tim’s Stories is. I’m an S.E. Hinton fan (Outsiders!) so I’m curious about this one.

May 5, 2013 - 9:32 pm

Courtney @ Courtney Reads A Lot - Wow, Estelle! That is awesome that you got to meet Lauren Graham! I can’t help but think of her as Lorelai from Gilmore Girls. I’ll definitely have to check out her book, especially since you recommended it. πŸ˜€

May 5, 2013 - 9:09 pm

Rebecca @ Reading Wishes - So lucky you got to be Lauren Graham, I love her from Gilmore Girls and would love to meet her in person. Her book sounds great and though I’m not an Adult reader, I might recommend it to my mum. 500 autographs is a lot, she really is a rockstar. Also, that’s a great that photo of you and her, you both look lovely. I’ve only read one Dessen book so far and we didn’t hit it off but I’m planning on giving her another go soon. Glad you had fun meeting Lauren, you lucky duck, and happy reading!

May 5, 2013 - 7:34 pm

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - AHHH Lauren Graham!! I’m actually really interested in her book. I had never thought of her as an author before this but of course loved her as Lorelei Gilmore!
So nice that you got a signed copy of Sarah Dessen’s book!! I think I may have been at that same signing as Heidi? Was it the Illinois one????

May 5, 2013 - 4:06 pm

Sara (of the Page Sage) - It’s so cool that you met Lauren Graham! I’ve been dying to read Someday, Someday Maybe since you posted your review. I’ll definitely try to get a copy of my own this week. πŸ™‚

Happy Reading!

Bonnie - Oh gosh, that’s so awesome you were able to meet Lauren Graham! I really can’t wait to get my hands on Someday, Someday, Maybe… it sounds so fantastic.

May 5, 2013 - 1:47 pm

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - I seriously still can’t believe she signed 500+ books. Dang! What a rockstar πŸ™‚ Wish I could have joined y’all – that would have made it even more fun!

May 5, 2013 - 12:32 pm

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - Dang, this Lauren Graham signing sounds like it was HUGE! I’ve been to a fair share of large signings, but I don’t think I’ve ever had to wait for 2 hours just to get my book signed. The author sounds like a total rockstar though, because 500 autographs is a lot! I’m liking the new Sarah Dessen cover redoes as well, although I have yet to pick up a book by her… *hides head in shame* It’s so sweet that Heidi got a signed copy for you though. <3

Anyways, I hope you enjoy all your lovely books, Estelle, and happy reading! <3

April 8, 2013 - 4:25 pm

ashley - I like juilanne!

April 8, 2013 - 10:29 am

Margie aka The Bumble Girl - Ooo, what a sweet idea! I love all the colors so much! I usually go for pinks like in Magan’s picks, but lately I’ve been thinking so much about teals and sparkly stuff, makes me smile πŸ™‚

April 7, 2013 - 6:34 pm

Ashley - So excited for the Lauren Graham book! And those colors! Amy is an Ashley color!

April 7, 2013 - 5:06 pm

Ashley @ FireStarBooks - I loooove Portia! Glittery and simple!

April 7, 2013 - 3:18 pm

Allie Lewis - I really like Julianne and Helen for everyday, but Amy would be a welcome change of pace with its vividness. It’s perfect for summer.

April 6, 2013 - 11:42 pm

MelodyJ - I like Rose and Amy.

April 6, 2013 - 9:44 pm

Marie - I really Portia!

April 6, 2013 - 12:17 am

Mollie Katie - I love the Portia and Amy colors and the idea to offset one!

April 4, 2013 - 9:19 pm

Cee - I love the Rose and the Amy color.

April 4, 2013 - 11:30 am

shokufeh - Even without it being by Lauren Graham, I’d be all over that “Someday, Someday, Maybe.” But because it is…. And that Susan is a pretty shade.

April 4, 2013 - 1:50 am

LucΓ­a Valencia - I loooove Amy!

April 3, 2013 - 7:58 pm

daphne - i like amy & rose the best. i recently subscribed to Julep, too, and I’m anxiously waiting for my first set to come in.

April 3, 2013 - 7:06 pm

Sarah O - Ah I love all these colours but I think the Amy one is my favourite. You guys need to stop getting me hooked on Julep! But keep doing this feature because it’s pretty πŸ˜›

April 3, 2013 - 7:05 pm

Krispy - This is a brilliant feature! I love books and nail polish too, and the colors you chose are perfect for each book!

I love the sets you put together. If I had to choose 1 color, I’d probably go with PORTIA since I’m partial to blues, but I do love the pop of ROSE too!

April 3, 2013 - 2:01 pm

Cynthia - Great new feature! I love it!! and I actually love that cover of Someday, someday, Maybe. I love that it’s a little bit foggy but it makes the red coat stand out a lot. Thanks for the giveaway guys! I’m slowly becoming a nail polish addict myself. =)

April 3, 2013 - 12:55 pm

Maggie @ Young Adult Anonymous - This feature is so fun! And I LOVE the colors you chose. I think I need to join all the cool kids and become a Julep Maven. I would pick Julianne.

April 3, 2013 - 12:38 pm

Tiff @ Mostly YA Lit - AMAZING feature. I’m reading Someday, Someday, Maybe next week, and I’m super excited, so I’d have to choose one of those colours. I can’t decide, though…maybe Helen or Julianne?

Great picks for colours! Can’t wait to read your reviews!

April 3, 2013 - 12:15 pm

Bonnie - The Boyfriend App color collection is PERFECTION. Love those colors too! I have never heard of Julep before… going to have to go check them out. πŸ™‚

April 3, 2013 - 10:46 am

Sharon @ The Book Barbies - I absolutely love the idea behind this giveaway, ladies! I am super excited for BOTH of these books, and the colors match them perfectly!

My favorite color featured above is probably Amy, because it’s such a fun shade of blue. I really like all the colors, though, honestly, especially Julianne. So lovely!

April 3, 2013 - 9:14 am

Helen Moulden - You’d have thought I’d choose Helen, but nope it has to be Rose!

April 3, 2013 - 5:47 am

Eszter @ Anneish Imaginary Adventures - I’m so happy to have found other kindred spirits! Nail Polish + Books my favourite obsessions too! πŸ˜€ Oh, but the decision is soooooo hard: I think I’ll go for Portia! THANK YOU SO MUCH for this awesome giveaway!

April 2, 2013 - 10:56 pm

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - I love ALL of these colors (and this new feature) but I think I’m most drawn to Helen. Or Rose. Or Julianne. Crap! I like Magan’s picks, too, but I can’t stop looking at the Estelle’s mostly because I loved that book and the cover looks so pretty with the colors right next to it.

I think I’m saying Helen is my favorite. But really I just love them all.

April 2, 2013 - 9:49 pm

Tammy - Portia!

April 2, 2013 - 9:07 pm

Nuzaifa @ Say It With Books - Loving this feature since it combines TWO of my fave addictions-Books & Nail Polish!
Great idea guys! πŸ˜€
I love Portia-Looks super cute and glittery. *siiign*

April 2, 2013 - 8:38 pm

Candy S - I like the Helen one.

April 2, 2013 - 7:46 pm

Bridget Heiple Reich - From the colors above, I like Amy or Rose the best. If I was going to win one, I would choose Susan because I don’t have that one.

April 2, 2013 - 6:27 pm

Kimmy - Ooh, I love Portia!! And I can’t wait to read Someday, Someday, Maybe!

April 2, 2013 - 5:08 pm

Annie - All the colors for Someday, Someday Maybe look so gorgeous! I love Julianne! Also, Amy is amazing! I think I’m going to have to give Julep nail polish a shot! :)Can’t wait for the future Nailed It posts!

April 2, 2013 - 4:45 pm

shoesforall - Susan looks AMAZING.

April 2, 2013 - 4:15 pm

Amanda @ MarvelousCatoReviews - I am seriously loving the color “Amy”! It’s such a pretty blue, and it’s a blue that you can wear year-round!

April 2, 2013 - 4:04 pm

TheBookishManicurist - You know I’m gonna love this feature, right? You girls picked the perfect shades to match the covers πŸ™‚

And thanks so much for the lovely shout out! xox

April 2, 2013 - 3:49 pm

lisa @speciallisabooks - Oh my gosh what a brilliant giveaway! These colours are all beautiful! I think AMY is the one I love the most! Thanks for giveaway chance! xx

April 2, 2013 - 3:44 pm

Rachel - Oh my gosh, this is my FAVORITE blog feature ever. I don’t share my nailpolish love with others very often because I’m slightly horrified with how much of it I buy, but seriously, this is such a great idea! I really like both of the combinations your girls came up with. My favorite color is definitely Susan. I’m a pink polish girl πŸ™‚

April 2, 2013 - 3:23 pm

Andrea Eisenhour - Picking one of these colors is like trying to pick a favorite star in the sky! But if I must, Id pick Amy! (Also the name of one of my best friends!!)

April 2, 2013 - 2:16 pm

Alexa Y. - This post is all kinds of awesome – I hope you know that. The colors you’ve picked out are GORGEOUS. I did my nails in Helen last Saturday and it’s such a beautiful shade! (Plus, I totally walked the Brooklyn Bridge with it on my nails, so that’s cool too!)

And Mandee ROCKS. She’s the book mani goddess.

April 2, 2013 - 2:05 pm

Mallory L. - First, I am SO happy to have found yall’s blog! Books + Nail polish-doesn’t get much better than that!

April 2, 2013 - 1:55 pm

Heather - I’d have to go with Portia so Magan can come over and I can borrow Amy πŸ˜‰

April 2, 2013 - 1:53 pm

Elizabeth Hafner - Hard decision but I’ll have to go with Amy.

April 2, 2013 - 1:27 pm

Katie - You girls and your love of nail polish is too cute!! Love these colors:)

April 2, 2013 - 1:23 pm

Elissa - You said nail polish and now I’m here!! I really like the Julianne. It’s such a pretty color and probably works well for all occasions.

April 2, 2013 - 1:01 pm

Ellice - I love this feature! Books + nail polish = awesome πŸ™‚ Those colors match the book covers perfectly. Helen is my favorite, I think (so hard to choose!). Can’t wait to read your review of Lauren Graham’s book!

April 2, 2013 - 11:16 am

Lisa - Okay, this? This is AMAZING.

April 2, 2013 - 11:16 am

Ghenet Myrthil - I love this feature! I’ve heard a lot about Julip nail polishes but have never owned any. My favorite of these is the rose. If I don’t win this giveaway, I will need to splurge on it anyway! πŸ™‚

April 2, 2013 - 10:32 am

Tara - This feature is SO you guys! I leave the nails to a professional because I completely suck at it, so I envy your polish collections and ability to do your own nails πŸ˜‰

April 2, 2013 - 9:01 am

Ginger @ GReads! - You gals are so cute & clever! Love this new feature idea πŸ™‚ If I won the giveaway, I think I’d choose Helen. But really I love all the colors! Thank you πŸ™‚

April 2, 2013 - 8:56 am

Cari - OH I LOVE THE ROSE! Thanks for the wonderful and unique giveaway!

April 2, 2013 - 7:46 am

Tara @ Hobbitsies - Yes! Love this! I’ve been thinking about doing something like this on Pinterest but as per usual, you girls nailed it (HAHA pun totally intended) much better than I would have. I’ve been skipping Julep boxes for the past few months in favour of other nail polishes, but I just might need to go order Julianne!

Also, Estelle, I’m super excited to read your review of Someday, Someday Maybe! I’ll be digging into that soon as well and I’m so excited!

April 2, 2013 - 4:13 am

Olivia - This is such a cute idea! I like Julianne. Simple, classy, understated (maybe) but pretty. I didn’t get the hype about Julep until I recently tried some of their nail polish. OH MY NAILS, they’re awesome!

April 2, 2013 - 2:56 am

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - I’ve been intrigued by all these Julep polish pictures popping up everywhere! I think they have so many pretty colors! My favorite is Susan. Like you, I feel like it would be super cute with flip flops or sandals! My toes are always pink all summer long. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the opportunity to win! What a fun feature!

April 2, 2013 - 1:17 am

Cassie - AH, you two and your JULEP! You have poisoned .. wait no. BLESSED my nail polish collection! Personally i LOVE Amy & Portia i think they’re gorgeous, i always go for blues and greens, can’t help it! <3 And I didn't KNOW it was Lauren Graham the actress writing that book! aH….INTERESTTTINGG.

April 2, 2013 - 1:11 am

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Such a cute idea! But, then again, I would expect nothing less from the two of you because you’re both so adorable :). I gotta go with Magan’s picks, mainly because my toenails are pink πŸ™‚

April 2, 2013 - 12:11 am

Stormy @ Book.Blog.Bake. - Definitely a fan of the rose color the most. I like nail polish in theory, but never feel like spending money on it, so I always go for the classic red.

April 2, 2013 - 12:08 am

elena - i LOOOOVE this feature! nail polish is one thing i’ll always have an abundant of so no need for me to enter this giveaway. πŸ™‚ the colours are so pretty!! i’m excited for lauren graham’s book.
