Sharon @ Fictionally Inclined - Pushing the Limits was so good! I got Better than Chocolate, too. I hadn’t heard of it before, but it looks super adorable. I love the title and cover!

July 8, 2012 - 11:00 pm

Estelle - G, you are a trouble maker. haha

July 8, 2012 - 10:59 pm

Estelle - G, oh you. You are a troublemaker!

July 8, 2012 - 10:59 pm

Estelle - A, you’re so welcome! Always glad to pass along the book love! Yay for awesome books!

July 8, 2012 - 10:54 pm

Estelle - M, so crazy how Easy is making the rounds. Can’t wait to find a moment to start it. I still have so many library books out and a few ARCs I need to get to. It’s insane right now! Hope you had a great weekend. Thanks for commenting as always! I love to hear from you!

July 8, 2012 - 10:49 pm

Estelle - E, It is rather annoying with the ARC is crappy. I had that problem with Summer Nights… there was a strange nothing page in between chapters and it made flipping quite annoying. Hope you had a great weekend. I can’t wait to watch your vlog!!

July 8, 2012 - 10:48 pm

Estelle - J, you crack me up. I’m usually not lucky enough to tan so much during the summers anymore but it seems our cruise really helped in that department. Pale is pretty, btw! Think of Snow White! 🙂 Excited to hear what you think about Pushing as well!

July 8, 2012 - 10:46 pm

Estelle - M, you are so sweet! I don’t now why I look so tan in that video. It’s bizarre! Seems like Pushing the Limits is making the rounds this week! Can’t wait to see what everyone thinks. I know I’ve been reading a lot of mixed reviews! Thx for stopping in!

July 8, 2012 - 10:29 pm

Margie - Oh, your tan looks so good and you looks so pretty!

Great list of books this week! I just got Pushing the Limits too and I’m really looking forward to reading it soon too!
Hope you enjoy 🙂

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - I’m sorry… I listened, but all I could pay attention to was your completely awesome tan line! That has never happened to me, because I will be forever pale or lobster red.

I just got Pushing the Limits on Netgalley, so it’ll be fun to see if we have the same opinions or not.

Always fun to see you! 🙂

Melissa - Pushing the Limits is supposedly really great!!

elena - I’m reading Pushing the Limits right now! You’re so lucky you have a physical copy because I get SO DISTRACTED reading on my laptop & the copy for Kindle is really weird. Going to try to finish this book today though. Excited for your reviews, the latter sounds so mysterious. Happy reading! 🙂

July 8, 2012 - 5:07 pm

Rachel @ hello, chelly - Yay, I got mentioned in your video! haha. I really hope you like Pushing the Limits 🙂

July 8, 2012 - 4:47 pm

VeganYANerds - Good to see you, hun! I bought the Kindle version of Easy a couple of weeks ago after I heard really good things about, but I still haven’t read it – thanks for the reminder!

I agree, Pushing the Limits sounded really similar to Take Me There, and I didn’t enjoy PtL but some people love it, so I hope you do too!

July 8, 2012 - 3:07 pm

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - Thank you, thank you, thank you for sending me SUCH A RUSH. I read it the day I got it – and I loved it. While it’s no longer in my hands, I want to thank you for sharing the experience of the book with me!

And also, I totally jumped on Ginger’s recommendation. I finished EASY this morning – and LOVED it. It’s SO GOOD. I just couldn’t put it down when I had started it – and I hope you enjoy it!

July 8, 2012 - 11:15 am

Ginger @ GReads! - “It’s 3.99, that’s totally OK.” hahahaha I hope you enjoy Easy as much as I did. Insanely addicting.

Perfect Couple by Jennifer Echols | YA Book Reviews - […] It’s quite possible I would have enjoyed Harper and Brody’s story more if there had been more of a slow build, if they really worked to get to know one another, and if the tension has simmered just a little more. Or maybe I didn’t connect because I have aged out of Echols’ work? I probably would have given them the stink eye more than once because their fleeting decisions made little sense to me and there was so much back-and-forth I want him, I don’t want him, I want him. The bandaid was ripped from my reading-skin a few too many times, leaving me feeling very unattached and without much left to adhere to afterward. My recommendation if you’re in the mood for a great, steamy Echols’ read is to revisit Such a Rush. […]

June 22, 2012 - 10:42 am

Anna - I love it I love it and I’m sort of doing a little happy dance while I write this comment wheeee. Totally read it, totally preordered my own hardcover copy, and definitely going to reread it again. Jennifer Echols FTW!

June 22, 2012 - 8:38 am

Ginger @ GReads! - THIS. All of this. Holy dang. Estelle, you have out done yourself. This is by far my favorite review you’ve given a book. I know we’ve talked in length on this one, and I could probably talk another million years about it. It’s just SO. DANG. GOOD. I hope you’ve sent it to Magan & she’s devouring it now as I type this. Good lord, you’ve made me want to read it for a THIRD TIME.

June 22, 2012 - 8:33 am

Katie @ Blook Girl - I hope my reviews are like yours when they grow up! <3 Fabulous review, as always, Estelle! Such A Rush is intriguing to me because of its unique premise and I have been really pining for this one. I adore the cover, too!

It's about time we have some more kick-ass heroines in YA Lit! 🙂

Shelve It: 6/10/2012

VeganYANerds - Yay, you’re back! It sounds like you had a great time on your cruise!

I hope you LOVE Such A Rush, it’s a great story and I agree, love the cover so much!

I haven’t had anything really wow or disappoint me this week, everything has been mediocre!

But happy reading! <3333

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Great vlog! I love the post-holiday fuzziness — that’s the sign that you had a GREAT holiday =) I haven’t read any Jennifer Echols before, but I keep hearing people rave about her books. Where would be a good place to start?
