Sittin on the Shelf Revamp/Bring Back!


 So Sitten on the Shelf is a post that I added to my blog a long time ago and it's one that I really want to bring back for many reasons. One of those reasons is that my TBR pile is huge, like extreamly huge and I need to start reading these books or unhauling them. So that's the main goal with the new Sittin on the Shelf here at Ali's Bookshelf. When I first started posting these posts here on Ali's Bookshelf I had gotten the idea from a great blogging friend. Her blog was On My Reading Pile, but sadly she's not blogging anymore there.

Then the other day I found a similar post over at Kimberlyfaye Reads and her TBR Thursday posts made me really want to bring back this post. So a huge thanks to her for that. If you haven't read her blog, you really should! Her posts are fantastic! Her blog is quickly becoming one of my favorite blogs.

I have a few questions that I'm going to answer for each book and then I'm going to ask your opinion. I would love to hear your thoughts about these books.  Seriously, I need your help!!!







Title: What Happened To Goodbye
Author: Sarah Dessen
Publisher: Viking Juvenile
Published:  May 10th 2011
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 416 pages 

Who is the real McLean?

Since her parents' bitter divorce, McLean and her dad, a restaurant consultant, have been on the move-four towns in two years. Estranged from her mother and her mother's new family, McLean has followed her dad in leaving the unhappy past behind. And each new place gives her a chance to try out a new persona: from cheerleader to drama diva. But now, for the first time, McLean discovers a desire to stay in one place and just be herself, whoever that is. Perhaps Dave, the guy next door, can help her find out.

Combining Sarah Dessen's trademark graceful writing, great characters, and compelling storytelling, What Happened to Goodbye is irresistible reading.


This book has been on my TBR shelf for at least three years, probably more, if I'm being honest. Which doesn't really bother me as much as it would others, but I really want to start reading some of those books that I couldn't wait to read then put off till later. I know you know what I'm talking about right?  Anyway, let's talk about What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen.

 Why I haven't read this book yet?
 This is just one of those books that got pushed back and pushed back after I read it. Even though I was super excited to read it when I bought it. I also think I was a little intemidated by the side of the book, which I wouldn't be now because I read much larger books since then.

What I Plan On Doing?

I'm thinking I might add this to my summer reading list, but I also have two read a thons coming up and could read the book then? I'm not really sure, I do know I still want to read this book.

 What Do You All Think I Should Do?

What are your thoughts? Honestly, I need your help. Have you read this book? Is it worth reading? Let me know in the comments below.
