Random Acts of Kindness {RAK}

Have you heard of this amazing feature, Random Acts of Kindness hosted by the lovely ladies at Book Soulmates?!  If not, then you need to go HERE & learn all about it.  Here's the quick version: basically you create a wishlist of books (new or old) that you would like to read.  Share the list with others who have signed up for the feature & then go fulfill someone's wish!  In return your wish may be granted as well :-)  It's an awesome idea & one that I hope to continue each month.

Check out the awesome RAK's I got this month! :-)  THANK YOU to those who took the time to look up my wishlist & send me a book.  I love being able to give back & I hope to return the random act of kindness to each one of you in the future.

So Much Closer by Susane Colasanti
Thank you Steph from Steph Su Reads - though this book was not sent through RAK, she noticed I wanted to read it & sent me her copy. Such a nice surprise!!

Possessions by Nancy Holder
Thank you Cyndi from Dog-Eared & Bookmarked - she randomly picked this book from my wishlist & sent it to me! Definitely picking this one up when I'm ready for something suspenseful & creepy.

The Forest of Hands & Teeth by Carrie Ryan
Thank you Shannon from Stalking the Bookshelves - I have had a copy of this book on loan for awhile, but hadn't read it yet.  I'm happy to have my own copy now! Must make this happen SOON.

Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen
Thank you Missy from Two Readers Reviews for sending me this Dessen book!  I have only read a few of her books, but kept meaning to read more.  Now I can get ready for Dessen Week in May!

Harry Potter (books 1-7) by J.K. Rowling
Thank you Tara from Fiction Folio - still one of the BEST random acts of kindness that I have EVER received!! The avid HP fan that she is, sent me the WHOLE set!! Must make THIS happen soon! <3

  14. Holy bananas! I can't believe someone sent you the whole set of Harry Potter books! That is super awesome. I just read them recently, and they were so great. I can't wait to read them again (and I don't really reread books too often)!

    I also just read the Forest of Hands and Teeth and I devoured it! It's so awesome. I just bought the second book and I can't wait to read it.
