Book Swap Party

Today's the day! Thanks so much for participating in the Blogger Book Swap Party. I hope you had as much fun as I did and maybe even found some new blogs along the way...

I'll leave the linky below open until Friday so that if you haven't received your book yet you can still participate.

Now....for various reasons, I ended up with three partners. It's okay though I got a bunch of new books!

First, I received two from my Swap co-host Claire - and she wasn't even my partner! Claire sent me Love Walked In and the House on Mango Street.
Love Walked In: Sounds really good! It's narrated by two different people - Cornelia Brown, a cafe manager, and Clare, an eleven year old recently abandoned by her mother who is in search of her estranged father. Cornelia and Clare cross paths and form a friendship.

The House on Mango Street:   Esperanza doesn’t want to belong– not to her rundown neighborhood, and not to the low expectations the world has for her. Esperanza’s story is that of a young girl coming into her power, and inventing for herself what she will become. 

Again, thank you Claire! you didn't have to send me anything!
Then, I received Blue Boods from Ritalee. It's about a girl in New York City who suddenly finds out she's a vampire. I've heard of this book before and can't wait to read it. I've heard it's quite a bit different than Twilight (which I've read) and the Sookie Stackhouse books (which I've read most of also.)

Blonde....Undercover Blonde sent me Following Polly. It's about a snoop who first follows Polly and ends up a suspect in her murder. Then she snoops on the guy who was her crush back in college. She hopes he can help her get off the murder suspect list, and he agrees to help her if she helps him with a problem his father's having. But then they realize they need each other so much more than what they originally expected.

I'm set to receive on more book but it's coming from Fiji so it hasn't arrived yet. How cool is that?! I'm in love with Fiji even though I've never been. I'm excited to see what Vanisha decided to send.

Want to dish on the books you received? Link up below and check out what other bloggers received to expand your summer reading list. Thanks everyone, for participating!
