Hosting reading challenges attracts a lot of book-loving bloggers to my little corner of the Internet. One of these bloggers is Carly from Carly Blogs Here, and when I heard she was co-hosting a summer book swap with Tiffany, Emily and Lauren, I knew I had to participate. What's better than getting a book in the mail?? (Getting a book paw-delivered to you by a corgi, of course. Sorry, I've just been on a huge corgi kick lately....)
Anyway, I was so excited to be paired with Sara from Life & Leopard—she's a fellow Literary Junkie, so it was fun to have a familiar name to swap with. And when she emailed me her favorite authors, I just knew I'd found my reading soulmate. So of course I was confident I would receive an awesome book from her, but I didn't expect her to know me quite so well.
How could she have known that I almost bought this book myself when I was at Barnes & Noble picking out her gift?? Seriously, I was looking for Maphead in the social sciences section (for me—you'll have to stop by her blog to see what I picked out!), and I saw Behind the Beautiful Forevers and thought, "Oh! I've been wanting to read that." Luckily, I was able to restrain myself, because I got to unwrap it in the mail just a short time later. :)
Thank you for being such an awesome partner, Sara! I'm excited to read my new book, and I hope you liked my choice for you!
