Gift Exchange Swag

When I started working with Anna/_ocelott_ of genrereviews on this whole Book Geeks Gift Exchange thing, I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into.  But Anna seemed very confident so I said “What’s the worst that could happen?” and dove in.  I have to say – doing stuff like this with Anna is awesome.  She’s organized!  She emails back really fast!  And she’s the easiest person to work with.

ALSO.  She’s really freaking sneaky (in a good way).

Even with me emailing half of the people who signed up, Anna switched things around in secret to be my Giftee.  She totally threw me off her track!  I only cottoned on when I actually got these books and the note inside said it was from Anna.  She’d even sent me an email telling me that “your Santa wanted me to let you know you get two packages”.

Uh huh.  🙂

I finally got the third book yesterday. Here they are:

  • Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
  • Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken
  • Northlander by Meg Burden

  1. What a generous Santa! Yay, you now have a copy of Anna and the French Kiss so you can bump that up the TBR pile. Brightly Woven is a good read too. I have Northlander on my wishlist, looking forward to seeing what you think of that. 🙂

    • Anna is seriously funny and cool. I’ve had a lot of fun emailing back and forth with her. 🙂

      Ah, yes, I do need to read ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS. I may be the only one who doesn’t seem to have read it yet. Read the first few pages of NORTHLANDER and of BRIGHTLY WOVEN and both look promising. Have to finish the other books I started first though!

  2. Aahhh, I love ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS. Such a fun book that made feel all warm and fuzzy (but God I hate that cover and title..) I’ve heard a lot of good things about BRIGHTLY WOVEN, so it’s been on my wish-list for awhile. What a great little haul!

    • Yes, I’m not 100% behind the cover & title of ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS (love the deckled edges and cover flaps though), but it seems like one of those books everyone loved so I must give it a read.

      I’m happy with it. I may have spent some time petting my pretties…

      If you look at my goodreads I’m actively reading 2 books. I MAY have snuck some pages of BRIGHTLY WOVEN in there on the side. I have impulse control issues. Anyway, I can see what you mean about the comfort factor. It has that feel to it for sure.
