Lena @ Addicted 2 Novels - So many good books being released in May. So many beach reads, so little time!

May 4, 2013 - 9:50 pm

Rachel - Sometimes I honestly wish I could pause all these new releases so I can catch up and be ready for them. I want to read almost every May release, excluding September Girls because I will never put myself through the torture that is that book. I’ve already read/own a lot of these, but I really can’t wait for Five Summers to come out. That totally looks like a me book.

candy - I never really paid much attention to mentions of The Rules for Disappearing bc for a teen mom’s perspective it sounds like a book about a teen running away,which can be a scary thought for a mom.But now that I read the Description here,I want to read it.I also love this idea of the Author being from Louisiana like me.Thanks for posting about theses books.I also want to read Golden and Parallel.

Annie - Oooh, May seems like an amazing month! I’m definitely going to grab Winger as soon as it comes out! Marked it on my calendar! 🙂

May 3, 2013 - 1:37 pm

Leticia (@osoordinary) - Reboot!Reboot!Reboot! Can’t wait to read it! Also, I won an ARC of Parallel so I’m excited to read that! It’ll be my first parallel universes book and I’m newly interested, after having just completed the Fringe TV series! = )

Alexa Y. - Oh Lord, there goes all my cash! (Just kidding.) (Not really.) Seriously, there’s a ton of good stuff on here! My favorite, without a doubt, is Golden because I loved that book so.

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Holy almost-summer, Batman is right!! My wallet is soooo suffering this month, that’s for sure. I’ve already read a few but there are sooo many more I can’t wait to read! 🙂

May 3, 2013 - 8:51 am

Bookworm1858 - So many good titles-I want to read almost all of these and the only ones I’ve picked up so far are Reboot, The Rules for Disappearing, and The Book of Broken Hearts. I can’t wait to get these other ones!

May 3, 2013 - 6:39 am

Hannah @ Matter Loved Dust - Some of these have different UK release dates so I picked up ‘Invisibility’ yesterday which I’m excited to start. Also really looking forward to ‘The Originals’ and ‘Winger’!

VeganYANerds - Yay! Happy New Year to you, Magan – and Estelle! 🙂

I want that person to return Ruby Oliver #4 already! Is it overdue? Sometimes I put something on hold at my library and they send the person a reminder so a. they can’t renew it again and b. they end up returning it. Anyway, Frankie is also awesome, and I hope you love her story!

I hope you get to wear your new dress out tonight (well tomorrow night for you!)

The Bumble Girl - Hi pretty girl! You are so very sweet!
I adore Susane Colasanti and all the books that I have been able to read by her! She is such a great and inspirational person! I highly recommend Keep Holding On as your next book by her!
Great adult reads too! I should try to read a few of those next year too 🙂
Hope you and Estelle have a wonderful New Year’s! xo

Lori - I adore the Heist Society books! They are so much fun. I can’t wait to see what you think of it.

December 30, 2012 - 3:09 am

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - YOU ARE SO CUTE! Seriously. Especially the “y’all”s =) I will totally give you bonus points for venturing into the adult section … it can be a scary, uncertain kind of place. And there’s SO MANY MORE BOOKS in that section. It’s a little daunting. Happy New Year to you both — can’t wait for more of your amazing reviews in 2013! Mwah!

December 30, 2012 - 12:10 am

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - This was such a cute v-log Magan! Yay for finally buying books!! I’m glad you went crazy at Half Price Books too, I visited that place this week as well, but managed to restrict myself to 3 books. 😉 But Crazy sounds really neat. I mean, a kid’s father is going crazy. Sign me up as well! 😉 I’ve heard amazing things about Heist Society, it seems like such a fun book. I’ll be looking out for your review of that one before I decide if I should pick it up for myself or not. And I’m glad you managed to venture into the Adult section at B&N! 😉 I totally feel comfortable in the YA section myself, so I totally understand what you mean by that. But it’s great that you venturing out and trying some more genres! I plan to do that in 2013 as well, within different genres of YA, since I mainly read fantasy/dystopia.

Fantastic haul Magan! This v-log makes me want to meet you so badly… perhaps at TLA this year? *hint hint* Enjoy your lovelies and have a fabulous new year! <3

Jess @ Gone with the Words - Oooooh em GEEEE!! I hope you love it!! 😀 Keep me posted!!
