Book Swap!

Two posts today?
Just call me an overachiever (or a slacker for only blogging 3 days this week).

Heather and Katie recently hosted and book swap.
How could I not participate?! I'm a total book nerd!

I was paired up with Heather (lucky me)!! 

She sent me her book list via GoodReads. I am rather lame old school and sent Heather (a picture of) my hand written book list that I carry with me in the back of the Erin Condren planner...
{it looks like I haven't read very many off my list. this list just started a couple months ago, but I have read 27 books so far in 2012}

This lovely list of mine is two pages long. I only sent the first page to Heather because there is so much goodness on this page. And she certainly didn't disappoint!


I cannot wait to read this book!
Here's the description from Amazon:

He was tall, at least six feet, with dirty blond hair that hung over his eyes. His T-shirt read Nietzsche Is My Homeboy.

So, that was Matt.  Who Julie Seagle likes. A lot.  But there is also Finn.  Who she flat out loves.

Complicated? Awkward?  Completely.

But really, how was this freshly-minted Boston transplant and newbie college freshman supposed to know that she would end up living with the family of an old friend of her mother's? This was all supposed to be temporary.  Julie wasn't supposed to be important to the Watkins family, or to fall in love with one of the brothers.  Especially the one she's never quite met. But what does that really matter?  Finn gets her, like no one ever has before. They have connection.

But here's the thing about love, in all its twisty, bumpy permutations—it always throws you a few curves.  And no one ever escapes unscathed.

I sent Heather Crash by Nicole Williams

Also an amazing read!

Have you read either of these books?

What a great idea! I carry around a list of books also. I like to go to Barnes and Noble and write down books I like then find them in the library!

I took a couple books from your list! I would also recommend anything by Barbra Delinsky. Especially Not My Sister! Very good!
