Books “n” Bloggers Reveal Post

07 Jul

booksandbloggersJUNE14 As you know, I participated in the Book ‘n’ Blogger Book Swap hosted by Chaotic Goddess Swaps.  I was paired up with Katie at Spirit of Children’s Literature. This was a great pairing as we have similar tastes in books.

Here’s what she sent me:

A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd

We Are The Goldens by Dana Reinhardt

The Magic Half by Annie Burrows

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

The idea was to send at least three books:  One that you loved, one that you are interested in and haven’t read and one from your partner’s wish list. I was very lucky. All of the books Katie sent me are actually on my wish list or to be read list. I can’t wait to read them, especially A Snicker of Magic as I’m considering that one for my 4th & 5th Grade Book Club this next school year.

I was happy to be able to send Katie a book from her wish list – The Secret Hum of a Daisy (which I just finished reading this morning. I think she will really like it), one I’ve wanted to read, but haven’t yet – The Lost- and one of my favorite books – Finn Finnegan- written by a local Colorado author and fellow educator.

I also included another of my favorites – not a book, but the result of one of my favorite activities. I like to paint glasses/mugs. I paint way more than my family (and friends) can ever drink out of, so I thought I’d send a mug to Katie. Hopefully, the colors are ones that she likes, since I forgot to check beforehand.

These swaps are always so much fun. It’s so nice to meet new people and discover new blogs.

    How sweet you are to send her a hand painted mug! You sent each other some awesome books (I heard FANTASTIC things about Code Name Verity). Thanks for joining us for this one! 😀
