Shelve It: A Pepper Photobomb (Plus Books)

Hiya! No v-log today… I have the worst cough in the universe and I wouldn’t want you guys to experience that. (My husband and my cat are just about my limit.) I’m sitting here in my pjs and there are 50 mph winds going on outside — and in a few days? Thanksgiving! I just […]

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - I kind of cannot wait to read Roomies. I’m also kind of scared to start because what if it’s exactly like my WIP? (It’s not, but you know. College. I’m afraid I’m writing an un-original novel. SORRY, off topic!!!!)
I really liked Monument 14! I hope you enjoy it. It’s more post-apocalyptic, not dystopian so it is a bit more “contemporary” I guess! 🙂 Let me know what you think!
Also, Happy Thanksgiving!!!! So thankful for lovely friends like you ladies!!

Alexa Y. - I haven’t seen Catching Fire yet either, but I’m going tomorrow with my sister — and I’m excited! Frozen is also out tomorrow, I know, and I can’t wait to watch it either. Perhaps we’ll pull a double and watch them both at once? We shall see. Either way, I am definitely catching that too.

And your book haul sounds pretty great! I’m glad that you’re able to hold on to your book buying ban and still get some pretty awesome-sounding books too. (Also, hi Pepper! And that mug — is it a mug? — is the cutest!)

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I have heard good things about Catching Fire, too, although I don’t plan to see it. But I am SOOOO excited for Frozen, and I’m hoping my cousin might want to go with me.

April Books & Wine - I really liked Monument 14, despite a few issues. It was a quick read and very action-oriented.

I’ve heard good things about The Art Of Fielding.

Hahhhhh, book bans are hard, especially when things are shiny and new. I suck at them, especially because I am like oh- Kindle books don’t count, but they totally DO COUNT.

Feel better!

Sara (of The Page Sage) - The Killing Woods sounds really good! Really liked Christopher’s Stolen.

I haven’t seen Catching Fire either, but I’ve heard it’s amazing! Frozen looks really cute but I just can’t stomach seeing it after what the comments the Disney animator made about female characters. :/

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Kudos on keeping up with your book buying ban! I know how tough that is … I didn’t think that I’d actually buy many books this year since a) I’m on EI while on maternity leave so therefore a reduced income, b) I thought I’d actually READ the books on my shelves and c) I promised myself that I’d work on finishing the series that I’d started before reading any new ones but …. well, I guess those reasons weren’t good enough =P So, yeah, I feel you on that one.

BUT, I also hope you feel better soon! My hubby was down with a cold earlier this week, and has now passed along his sniffles to Marko & I. So it’s been a lazy weekend on our end too.
