As it's getting closer to Christmas, I've been trying to reduce my amount of book swapping as I fear that the books may not get into the hands of their recipients very quickly, thanks to the busy postal service. Nevertheless, it's still early December and so I've sent some books out and received these in return (and all in brand new condition!):
The Kite Runner Graphic Novel - I've never actually read a graphic novel as they don't really appeal to me all that much. However, I absolutely adored Hosseini's original novel and so I couldn't really go wrong with trying this one out - at least the storyline is something that I know I will enjoy!
Forever - If I'm being honest, I didn't enjoy Shiver or Linger, but I'm still a sucker for pretty covers and I feel as though, seeing as I plodded through the first two, that I should read this one. It's not something I'm expecting to enjoy but at least I'll have read the conclusion to the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy.
Vanished - This is two books in one - When Lightening Strikes & Code Name Cassandra. I read the first two books in Cabot's 'The Mediator' series earlier this year and whilst I didn't find them fantastic, they were easy enough reads. I've heard a lot of good things about Cabot and I'm hoping this series will be fun to read.
It's Not Summer Without You - This is the second in the Summer trilogy and I'm really excited about getting around to reading it. I've had the first book in this trilogy on my bookshelf for some time now, but I've not picked it up yet. However, I read Han's stand alone book, Shug, earlier this year and loved it. Hopefully these books will be just as good or even better!
Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts - I admit it, I only really wanted this one for it's wintery cover. I'm not usually one for books about animals, even though I have a lot of pets, but I'm hoping this will be an easy to read piece of chick-lit.
