Labor Day Weekend Read-A-Thon: Update #1 & #2

After Obsession
Labor Day Weekend Read-A-Thon is hosted by Katie's Book Blog.

I have been a very bad blogger in not getting my post done on a daily basis and I have even been a worst reader. I am trying my hardest to find time to read After Obsession by Carrie Jones.
Aimee and Alan have secrets. Both teens have unusual pasts and abilities they prefer to keep hidden. But when they meet each other, in a cold Maine town, they can't stop their secrets from spilling out. Strange things have been happening lately, and they both feel that something-or someone- is haunting them. They're wrong. Despite their unusual history and powers, it's neither Aimee nor Alan who is truly haunted. It's Alan's cousin Courtney who, in a desperate plea to find her missing father, has invited a demon into her life-and into her body. Only together can Aimee and Alan exorcise the ghost. And they have to move quickly, before it devours not just Courtney but everything around her. 
Filled with heart-pounding romance, paranormal activity, and rich teen characters to love-and introducing an exciting new YA voice, Steven Wedel-this novel is exactly what Carrie Jones fans have been waiting for. Meet your next obsession.
I am about halfway through this book and it is pretty good. It is not a suck-me-in-kind of book, but it is definitely entertaining! I hope to finish this book by the end of the labor day holiday, but it does not look like I will.

And last, but most certainly not least...I am an avid lover of trading and selling :] As of right now I am offering books from HERE and HERE, as well as something off of my ETSY store and complete blog designs. I am mainly looking for young adult books or just about anything that catches my eye. If you think that you may be interested then you can email me atashleysbookshelf at gmail dot com with what you are wanting and what you are willing to trade.

I am doing a comment contest throughout the month of September and you can read about it more here.
