I participate in an Elfster swap monthly or bi-monthly. I got a cool journal, a book of poetry from my favorite poet and a set of pencils from my wishlist. I was floored by how awesome this was.
I have been participating in a few book swaps recently, which has been a lot of fun. I get to shop for someone and they then send me something.
Special thanks go out to the person who sent me the book—@alana_bloom on Instagram.
Today I am sharing a book swap from Instagram. This had two books from my list, some of my favorite chocolates, and a really cool dot grid journal with stickers.
It’s no secret that I love the Wizard of Oz series. I’ve spent a lot of time reading them as a child and beyond.
Marvel decided to do these. And I finally finished all the series. There is even an omnibus, which is big but awesome. The graphic novelizations are pretty good.
The Silent Patient was a book I had heard about, and decided I needed to read because of all of the buzz.
Author Alex Michaelides takes readers on a psychologically compelling tale of a woman who is silent, and presently serving time in a hospital for killing her husband.
The writing drew me in, and it was hard for me to put down. I ended up finishing this the same day I started it because I just couldn’t put it down once I got into it.
It’s Monday, which is the day for a great meme.
The Book Date has been asking us this question for a while, and it tends to get a lot of answers. Last week I read eleven books. I was intending to read more, but lots of work has been happening. Let’s push for ten books this week.
I’m in the middle of the Marvel Wizard of Oz series,
Buffy the Vampire Slayer Vol 1: High School is Hell
This is the Buffy Summers you know, who wants what every average teenager wants: friends at her new school, decent grades, and to escape her imposed destiny as the next in a long line of vampire slayers tasked with defeating the forces of evil…only this time around, her world looks a lot more like the one outside your window.
