My Goodies from the Books N' Bloggers Swap with Candace @ Candace's Book Blog

Love it!
Best Swap Ever! <3
Okay, so recently you guys know that I participated in my very first swap that I've ever done, and I absolutely loved every bit of it. I ended up getting paired with a pretty amazing blogger (Candace @ Candace's Book Blog), who I've been following for almost two years or more. Oh my goodness, she is absolutely one of the sweetest person's I've gotten the chance to talk with and get to know a little bit. I loved conversing with her back and forth through emails, finding out what she doesn't and doesn't like, what she reads and won't read, and just a lot of fun things like that. We pretty much have a good amount of things in common, so I had no problem picking things up for her. In fact, I loved shopping for her so much that I wish I could have gotten her more, but the box wasn't big enough. 

When I got my box from her, I was just so incredibly excited that I couldn't help but rip right into it. Originally I was going to film an unboxing, but I was feeling so bad that day that I decided not to vlog and just take pictures of my goodies instead. And holy batcrap, that box
Love what Candace gave me! <3
Look it, all my goodies! <3
was crazy filled with so many AH-MAZING things that I couldn't hardly take my eyes off of them. One of the things she asked me is if I liked Lisa Schroeder books and I was like, yeah I like them but I think I've only read one so far and I know I really enjoyed it. So, I was super excited to see a copy of I Heart You, You Haunt Me in the box AND it was signed too! OMG! I did a little "happy Snoopy dance" and squealed while hugging the book to my chest. I think my gran thought I was a little nuts, but I don't even care. lol.

Digging further into the box I ended up pulling out freakin' hardback covers of Between The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, Antigoddess, and Shadow Hills, which is a book that she said she read years ago and loved and crazy enough, it was a book that I had actually contemplated picking up a few months ago myself. I swear, this girl spoiled me so much and in her little note to me, she said that she wanted to stick another book in there, but that it wouldn't fit and I kinda wanted to do the same thing with me. LOL.

I really loved doing this swap and I know that I'll definitely be doing more of them in the future for sure, because it was just so much fun showering someone else with goodies. Oh, and I kinda forgot to tell you the idea behind the swap, which was that you were supposed to give the person you were paired up with three books (one was supposed to be off of their wishlist, one was supposed to be a book you loved, and the other was supposed to be a book that you have been wanting to read). Oh, and she even included this really cute little note pad and a magnetic daily planner, which I totally needed. She can like read minds or something, I don't even know, but I love this swap and future swaps will be forthcoming in the future!

I really hope you enjoyed this post and all of the goodies, if you want to see what I go her just head over to her blog and check out all her goodies!

    I loved Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, and I hope you do, too. I'm so glad we could pair you two up, as you clearly both have great taste in books! :)

  2. There's a fair amount of humor to keep the http://www.lakesideshopping.com/store1.html kids laughing and even provide a giggle or two http://www.artabloom.com/err.html for adults.

    Where the movie is lacking is in the louis vuitton outlet emotional components that make most recent animated blockbusters really work. Particularly troubling is Toby's death scene. Obviously there's a need to avoid rendering the violence in a replica watches uk graphic manner, but Dr. Tenma's reaction to it is so understated as to be undetectable. It calls to mind (and suffers by comparison to) the early scenes of Finding Nemo, where Marlon rolex replica is helpless to stop the attack on his family and is left cradling the replica handbags last egg that protects his unborn son.
