November #RAK Wrap-Up

RAK-button-FINAL1Alright bibliophiles, for those of you that celebrate the holiday season that involves handing out gifts, how many of you have books, books and more books on your list? And have you all been good and followed your budget all year or do you think Santa’s going to be checking those credit card receipts and dumping a lump of coal in your book bag or ereader? I think I may be in trouble so I guess I’ll do what I do every year and buy my own gifts to myself.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful #RAK time too this season and not forgetting to pass along just a tiny bit of something. I wasn’t as generous as I wanted to be but I’m going to try to be better this month. I loved what I received and I hope my recipients felt the same!

I received:


Roots of Insight (The Dusk Gate Chronicles #2) by Breeana Puttroff from Temara at Sexy Book Nerds


The loveliest, most thoughtful bookmark from Isabelle (miki) at Lecture toute une Aventure (A Reading Adventure). Miki asked me about my favorite colors, what sorts of things I liked and picked the exact flowers on the bottom of the bookmark for me. She sent a sweet letter that make me sniffle some good tears – I truly will treasure this bookmark and always remember the friend who made it for me.

I Sent:


After all of that, I sent poor miki a book! I hope she loves it though.


I thought it had to be kismet that Temara had My Favorite Mistake on her wishlist on the same day that I bought it, so I couldn’t resist sending it to her!

So that was my month. I hope everyone else had a wonderful #RAK month and if it wasn’t full of books and new friends, I hope December will bring some for you. Sign ups are at Book Soulmates either today or tomorrow.
