The Books ‘n’ Bloggers Swap is held by Chaotic Goddess Swaps. This gives us a chance to meet other books bloggers and share some awesome books!
In this swap, we are to give each other :
1. A book you love
2. A book you haven’t read, but are interested in
3. A book on your partners wishlist
I was lucky to be partnered with another Aussie blogger – Chiara @ Books for a Delicate Eternity! (Another awesome YA book blogger. Check it out! She has some great memes and discussions).
Now to the goodies I received in our swap!
1. Touch of power by Maria V. Snyder
I’ll admit, I was kinda nervous about receiving this book. It is one of Chiara’s favourites – but I was sadly not a huge Snyder fan after I DNF one of her books.
HOWEVER, I decided to jump on in and read it right away. You know what? I really liked it. Now I can say that I like Maria V. Snyder! Review coming soon.
2. Dearly Departed by Lia Habel
3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I finally have a copy of this! After all the talk, the movie, the aussie author, the gorgeous cover! (I like my version) I really had to read this. Now I’m just waiting for the perfect, rainy day to get started. 😀
Chiara also included a whole bunch of other goodies, like a notebook, a new book mark ( can’t get enough of those), an adorable Disney classics calendar (I LOVE IT – MY MONTH HAS PETER PAN ON IT) and a lovely handwritten note.
A big, thank you very much to Chiara for being a great partner! This positive experience has really made me want to continue doing these kind of swaps. Sharing and recommending is one of the best parts of being in a reading community!
