A haven for lovers of the written word
separate post

As some of you may know, I participated in the Chaotic Goddess Books n’ Bloggers Swap for the second time, back in June.

I loved doing the swap in January, and thought that it would be great to participate again. And it was! What isn’t there to love about sharing books with people? Answer: nothing, obviously.

This time, I was paired up with Vicky from Outback Expat. She lives in the Northern Territory, which I think is absolutely fabulous!

For the swap, we had to give and receive three books:

1. A book we love.

2. A book we haven’t read but are interested in reading.

3. A book from our partner’s wish-list.

Vicky gave me:

1. Residue by Laury Falter

Vicky said that she loved this book when she read it, and that is was written really beautifully. I think it sounds awesome, and I cannot wait to read it.

2. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

I couldn’t believe it when I saw this book! Vicky said that she’s been eying it for a while, but so have I! I am so excited to read this one, and it’s a hardback, to boot!

3. Charmed Thirds by Megan McCafferty

This is the third book in the Jessica Darling series. It was the last book I needed to own, and now I can finally read it!

divSo this is my haul! If you were wondering what I got Vicky:

1. Shadows by Paula Weston. I really think this series deserves more love – and the Australian author is a plus.

2. The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas. I hadn’t read it at the time, but now I have read it and loved it!

3. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. This is so high up on my to-read list, since practically everyone I know loves it.

In case you want to participate, I’m pretty sure the Books ‘n’ Bloggers Swap is a six-monthly thing. So when January comes around, maybe you should sign up :D I can vouch that it’s a lot of fun.

Until next time,
