Estelle’s Shelve It: 1/6/2013

Oh howdy! And happy new year! Sorry for the lack of v-log tonight, but it’s a busy weekend! Hope you are wrapped up in some good reading, and finding time to relax. Monday begins the first full week in awhile for most of us, I’m guessing? We will need the books to get through! Here’s […]

Estelle - It keeps staring at me on my pile, yelling at me. I will will will get to it soon.

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - OOOHHH I just bought Sweethearts a couple of days ago. Great minds!!

Alexa Y. - I really, really want to read Anatomy of a Single Girl now, since you loved it so much! I’m curious to see how the sequel turns out 😉

April Books & Wine - CAMERON QUICK!

The end.

VeganYANerds - Nice haul! I got Riptide, too! It made me think of Raw Blue but now that you mention it, Blue Crush as well!

And I hope you LOVE Sweethearts, it’s wonderful 😀

The Bumble Girl - The Fifteen Days Without a Head sounds heartbreaking! I was just approved for this one too – the whole “little brother who’s convinced is a dog” tugged at my heart, these poor boys! I am looking forward to sitting with a box of tissues for this story…
Enjoy your new reads 🙂
And happy new year to you both! xo

Tara - GAH Sweethearts! That has been on my radar for ages and I have yet to actually read it.

Hope you get to relax a little bit this weekend 🙂

Lisa the Nerd - Yay for a used bookstore! Even if the YA section was teeny.

January 6, 2013 - 5:14 pm

Amy @ Tripping Over Books - Great books, Estelle! It’s awesome that you have a used book store to plunder, even if the YA section is small. I don’t have anything like that in my neck of the woods. I’m definitely going to have to check out Anatomy of a Single Girl, though. It sounds awesome! And I can’t wait to see what you think of Sweethearts!! Good stuff, friend!

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - Ugh, back to school this week! Although, I do have Monday off, since it’s a Teacher Workday or something. But seriously, it’s been luxurious not having any stress of grades or anything. Whatever the case, I’ll be spending Monday making the most of my time off to blog!! I’m hoping that if I get everything scheduled ahead of time, I’ll have plenty of time to comment and such.

Anyways, you got some good stuff this week, Estelle! Riptide looks really interesting, I think that one is going on my TBR list. I’m excited to read your review of that one, to know if I really should get a copy of it or not. And YAY for discovering a used book store, even if the YA section is small. It seems like you were still able to find some goodies, though! I seriously need to pick up All You Never Wanted, since I’ve seen some seriously gushing reviews.

Fantastic haul, Estelle! Enjoy your lovelies, and GOOD LUCK for a full week back at work! <3 Just remember that working is feeding your book addiction. 😉

Kristen - I recently read my first Sara Zarr book (Once Was Lost), and I’m definitely now a fan. Her writing is so beautiful and concise. Love. Thanks for the wonderful review. Can’t wait to dive into this one too.

September 27, 2012 - 10:31 pm

Lisa - This is on my to read shelf right now!
Oh man, how I adore a book that sweeps me up so completely as this one did for you.
Can’t wait!

September 27, 2012 - 6:33 am

VeganYANerds - Yay, I am so glad you loved this (and you’ve reminded me that I have been sitting on my review for too long!) Sara is such a brilliant author

September 26, 2012 - 3:11 pm

Jen - I really liked this book, too. And hahahah I love “husband-ignoring” books!! As much as he may not like it, those are the best kinds of books. Jenna got on my nerves a little at times, but CAMERON <3 Fantastic review!

September 26, 2012 - 1:56 pm

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - This book sounds absolutely beautiful. I do know what it’s like to have that childhood friend who sort of “disappears”, especially because there’s always that lingering “what if” feeling about your relationship. I really cannot wait to read this book!

September 26, 2012 - 10:24 am

Annette - I don’t know why I haven’t picked this one up — I’ve read her others. I didn’t really know anything about it, although I’m familiar with the cover and I have it in my library. I’ll be adding this to the list. Thanks.

Ginger @ GReads! - BEAUTIFUL review, Magan. I adored this novel. It took me by a quiet surprise that I was not expecting, at all. It’s such a tiny book when you look at it and that cover makes you think it’s going to be light and fluffy. Oh how far from the truth that is. I agree that I think my favorite moment was when they were reintroduced later as teens. That scene packed so much emotion.

September 26, 2012 - 8:55 am

April Books & Wine - Sigh, this fricken book. I liked it a lot, but I listened to the audio, which was alright, but I think would have been wayyyyy better if it was professionally narrated and not narrated by the author.

But, sigh, CAMERON QUICK.

The end.
