The #EstellaProject, Season Two Linky!



Note: this is a sticky post and will remain at the top o’the page for easy access until the event is over!

That’s right, kids. It’s time for the big reveal! THESE are the books you nominated for the Summer 2014 #EstellaProject! Now all you have to do is:

  • Read one, two, or three of these babies between June 1 and September 1
  • Link your review(s) up right here as you finish
  • For each book you read, review and link up, you will gain one entry toward the prize drawing.
  • These can be first-time reads or re-reads with newly-written reviews, but please don’t pull old reviews for books you’ve already read. That’s cheating!

  1. Yay!! I see some that I’ve been meaning to read (The Bell Jar, The Sparrow)…but WOW so many titles I’m unfamiliar with. What a diverse list.

    • You don’t have to officially link up to participate. Just leave links to your reviews as you finish them. Of course, I’m a total lurker, so leaving a link to your post here wouldn’t be a BAD thing at all! 😀

  2. Sign me up! Great list and some of these books were already on my TBR list. I will probably start with Outlander by Diana Gabaldon because I’m supposed to see her at the end of the month and haven’t read her book yet!

  3. Looking forward to it. One of the books I have barely cracked into already is The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry. The rest of the list looks great. Especially thrilled to see Love Minus Eighty there. 😉

  4. I’ve already started The Sparrow, and I’m going to try to read Kavalier and Clay, and then finish up with To Kill a Mockingbird when the audio is released next month (is it cheating if I l choose the book I nominated?). Of course, this could all be a pipe dream, but I’m going to my best Little Engine impersonation when it comes time to start Kavalier and Clay.

  5. OH! Crossing to Safety! and East of Eden is something I think I might be ready for. And Kavalier and Clay!!! ooooooooooo. and AJ Fikry and Eleanor and Park and… wow – I agree with Trish that there are quite a few I’ve never heard of.

    LOVE to see Geek Love on this list. Such a whackadoodle fun read that was. *smiles*

  6. Would love to read The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry, Tell the Wolves I’m Home, The Bell Jar or maybe A Three Grows In Brooklyn

    Maybe I should just make this my summer reading list :O

  7. I’m planning on Tell the Wolves I’m Home (actually reading that one now) and The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry. And maybe a reread of To Kill a Mockingbird. By the way, I can highly recommend Love Minus Eighty, Ocean at the End of the Lane, and Eleanor and Park. How is The Sparrow, I’ve always meant to read that one.

  8. I’ll make it a classics summer and plan to read both A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and To Kill a Mockingbird. Lots of good books on this list!

  9. What a great list! Some have been on my TBR for a long time and some I’ve never heard of. It might be time to read The Sparrow–folks have told me to read that one for years so perhaps I’ll finally listen to them.

  10. That’s such a great list! Quite a few of these books have been on my TBR for a long time. :)
    Fortunately, I already read and reviewed The Night Circus. I think I’m going to pick up either East of Eden, Ready Player One or Bastard Out of Carolina next.

  11. I don’t think I’m going to finish The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay in time to post about it, but I am enjoying it *so* much. #EstellaProject win in my book. :)
