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!

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!

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!!

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! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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!

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

Estelle: Shelve It 6/24/2012

With birthdays, graduations, and the release of Pixar’s Brave… we were a little busy this weekend. Forgive me for the lack of vlog but I’m sort of pooped despite the “relaxing” weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope all of you had a great week and a super Sunday! I took out half the library this week. And they […]

Terra Elan McVoy - What a beautiful pile of books! Thanks for including THE SUMMER OF FIRSTS AND LASTS in there! Enjoy!

June 27, 2012 - 8:08 pm

April Books & Wine - YESSSS library books and Audrey Wait and The Karma Club and reading books for fun and pleasure not because you feel obligated to review.

I am in love with this Shelve It.

June 25, 2012 - 11:22 pm

Paige - I read Audrey Wait back when I went to the library everyday because I looked for it everywhere and then finally found it at my library. It was actually pretty good =) I hope you enjoy everything and here’s my IMM!

I hope you enjoy Take Me There, I still need to read it, too! And now I’m off to check out some of the reviews I missed this week ๐Ÿ˜‰

June 24, 2012 - 9:26 pm

Estelle - Tara, I think I am going to have to keep moving Audrey up in my pile. It seems to be quite the reading hit! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stopping in. xo

June 24, 2012 - 9:23 pm

Tara - Ooooo I can’t wait for you to read Belles! Thanks for the shoutout ๐Ÿ™‚
