Books and Bloggers Swap Reveal!

Posted May 2, 2015 by Lory in events / 12 Comments


This was the first time I’ve ever participated in a book swap, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. This one is hosted three times a year by Chaotic Goddess swaps, and I was paired up with Holly of Finding My Everyday Happy. She did such a wonderful job of selecting books for me! Look at these fantastic choices:


A book from my wishlist: The Boys in the Boat. This is on Holly’s list too, so it will be fun to share our thoughts.

A book she’s read: Holly sent two books that her fifth and sixth grade ESL students have recommended, Esperanza Rising and Pictures of Hollis Woods. They both look great.

A book she hasn’t read but is interested in: The Wolves of Andover. This historical novel set in colonial Massachusetts is right up my alley.

Plus, she put in some cute rainbow colored sticky tabs that will be perfect for marking passages I want to come back to or copy out for reviews.

Thank you, Holly! I loved being part of the swap with you and I hope you did too.

  1. This looks to be a great bunch of books.

    Exchanging books can be such fun and it can introduce us to authors that we would not otherwise discover.

    This also proves that reading can be an interactive experience šŸ™‚

  2. Oh! The Wolves of Andover is on my shelf! šŸ˜€
    And I loved Esperanza Rising, when I read it in college in my kid lit class. Thanks so much for participating in the swap- it looks like you got a great package!

    • I liked Echo when I read it earlier this year, and I'm very interested in reading the more by the same author. This package was altogether perfect for me. Thanks for the great swap.

  3. I love the idea of a book swap! I should participate sometime – it's always wonderful to get something in the mail. And your package looks like it was put together very thoughtfully!

    • I have so many deadlines in May and June, I might not get to them for a while. But I'm looking forward to it when I do.

  4. What a fabulous package! I think you would be a wonderful partner for Books n' Bloggers–I'm bummed I didn't do it this time, but next time I will! I'm going to check out The Wolves of Andover!
