are they here yet?

Books, Books, Books!!! I love a good book, and I know all of you do as well! I am patiently awaiting three books that I can't wait to get my hands on!!!

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
The Body Finder Kimberly Derting


Now I am super excited for all three of these and I would like to thank Sherry from Flipping Pages for All Ages for awarding me The Body Finder for a contest she had!! I am very excited to read the book and I plan to do a review on it when I am finished! Check out Sherry's blog if you haven't she is really awesome and always has the scoop on some great books!

Another book I would like to showcase is Loves Me, Loves Me Not it is a book compiled of 40 stories ranging in different styles of romance. I'm very excited to open this book, and this was another one that I won thanks to Jan Jones, I have been so lucky to win these books, and I am truly thankful to have my name drawn! Jan Jones has a fabulous blog so please check her out!

I have the copy of Loves Me, Loves Me Not, but I am patiently waiting *secretly stalking the mail-man* so I'm sure you will all know when I receive them because I'll be going bonkers over blogger!

And yesterday Kristin over at Kristin Creative had her birthday contest and I won a $10 Amazon gift card! What book to choose, what book to choose?!

FYI - A contest is being held over at Writing in the Wilderness for a $20 gift card to Amazon, Barnes & Noble or borders so check it out!

Are you waiting for any books?! What are they?

Congrats. It's always amused me how exciting it is to start a new book, but it really is.

For our writers group Christmas party we did a white-elephant gift exchange... with books! The excitement level was a little ridiculous; servers and diners kept staring. :)

Jen said...

What a fantastic idea Samantha!!! I never thought about that, but I will have to make sure to have a book exchange for this years christmas party! I bet they were staring... I would have been ecstatic!

Jen Chandler said...

Hmmm, specifically? Not. Just waiting for the extra cash to go buy some good books :) I am waiting on James A. Oliver's next one. I seem to always been waiting for his next book...

Congrats on all the wins!

Ahh, nothing beats new books in the mail! I stalk the mailman too. ;) Love the cover of Hex Hall. I've never heard of the author, but I may give it a looksee.

I have a big list of books I'm waiting for. One is Mockingjay, the third Hunger Games book. Another is the next book in James Dashner's 13th Reality.
