November 2012 Young Adult Book Releases

    I bet you guys thought I was going to choose a photograph of a turkey or some delicious Thanksgiving treat for my November 2012 Young Adult Book Releases post. I just couldn’t do it. I thought that might be too cruel. I don’t know about you, but my stomach is growling just thinking […]

VeganYANerds - Nov 13 is a busy day for books this month! I want Meant to Beeeeeeee!

Estelle: Shelve It (4/29/2012)

Just a quick note before we launch into this week’s meme. This week has been quite a whirlwind in the blogging community when it was leaked that Kristi a.k.a. The Story Siren plagiarized work from another blog. This is an offense that Magan and I take very seriously, as we both work in fields were […]

Estelle - M, You already beat me to reading Lonely Hearts Club. haha. :-/ But you did introduce me to the “recommended by” feature on GR that might make my brain work better. So thanks for that. xo

Estelle - Sash, ha! I have Looking for Alaska to read as well. Maybe I’ll read them back to back? Thanks for the suggestion!

Estelle - Paige! Thanks for stopping in! I had a fun time looking at your blog and listening to your vlog. I read Face on a Milk Carton a really long time ago and I liked it a lot… in fact it is one of the only books I have successfully gotten my younger sister to read too. Did you ever see the TV movie? It’s one of my favorites. haha.

Paige - If you were only going to read a few Dystopians you should definately try Divergent because it’s so so good! I just finished reading The Summer I Turned Pretty so I can’t wait to get my hands on It’s Not Summer Without You. Thou Shalt Not Road Trip looks really good! I hope you enjoy everything and here’s my IMM!

Katie @ Blook Girl - Wow, what a fabulous book haul, ladies! I can’t believe you haven’t read Divergent yet! I really hope you love it 🙂 Thanks to YOU, I snagged an e-copy of Unbreak My Heart this week and I can’t wait to read it!

I keep hearing that I need to read Where Things Come Back, so I think I’ll pay a visit to the bookstore this weekend 🙂 Great, there goes my paycheck!

I also decided to “follow my own star” in regard to all the drama, and created my own meme, Mission: Acquired. I hope you’ll stop by and check out my goodies 🙂 http://www.blookgirl.com/book-blog/mission-acquired/147-april-28-2012

Happy reading, ladies! <333

VeganYANerds - Haha, I laughed when you said “basically I’m a liar” because I am always saying I’m on a book ban but then I go out and buy more books!

Great haul this week, Estelle! I love the Summer series and the bonus letters sound interesting!

Also I need The Lonely Hearts Club, I love anything with a Beatles theme, must buy asap!

April 29, 2012 - 5:13 pm

Eva, The Book Stoner - SO glad to know where you and Magan stand regarding the plagiarism issue. I already love your blog but now I love it even more 🙂 Every book in the world will also come out May 1st. LOTS of them! Haha!

Great haul! 🙂

Sash from Sash and Em - AHH! So much goodness!

1. Anything written by Elizabeth Eulberg rockkks.
2. FRANNY AND ZOEY.
3. I looooved Where Things Come Back 🙂 I’ve talked about it before but it would be so perfect to pair with Catcher in the Rye and Looking for Alaska.

margie c {the bumble girl} - The Lonely Hearts Club sounds like a good read, adding it to my list to hopefully get to this summer 🙂
I cannot wait to read Enchanted! I picked up a finished copy this week and it’s so pretty! and of course I love anything to do with fairy-tales and needed it asap!
Enjoy your pile!!!

April 29, 2012 - 10:32 am

Ginger @ GReads! - Aww I’m so glad I could influence your reading pile 🙂 haha I hope you love Lonely Hearts Club! Also, Lovestruck Summer is a good one as well. And yay for Where Things Come Back!!!!!!!!! gosh I love that book.
P.S. I needed the Conrad goodness in my life, too 🙂

April 29, 2012 - 10:02 am

Jess @ Gone with the Words - I’m glad you loved Somebody to Love..but I’m also glad I didn’t know that Beebs song because I would’ve hated it being stuck in my head, lol. Also, I really hope you like Divergent!!! Eeeeep! And, oh boy, I need to get my hands on those letters in We’ll Always Have Summer! Enjoy your books!!

April 29, 2012 - 9:39 am

Estelle - Elena, hahaha. It was quite a bonus to read the book with JB stuck in my head. Really. Definitely get into Jenny Han’s summer series like… this summer. I can’t wait to hear what songs you come up with to go along with them!

April 29, 2012 - 9:29 am

elena - As soon as you mentioned Justin Bieber, I had to go on Spotify and put him on! I don’t know how I will get through that book without “I JUST NEED SOMEBODY TO LOOOOVE” constantly refraining in my head. I really want to read Enchanted so I hope it’s good! I love fairytales. :3 I’m excited for the new series on the blog you guys have planned! I hope you like Divergent too, it’s one of the better dystopians, I think. I really need to properly read Jenny Han books.

There are so many awesome books coming out in the next couple of months. I wanted to take some time to spotlight some of the April 2012 Young Adult book releases that Estelle and I have on our TBR lists! If one (or both) of us has read it, I linked our reviews, too, so […]
