Books For Trade or Sale

11 Nov, 2011 by in Uncategorized 2 comments

It’s time for a book clean up! My awesome husband put together this 6×6 bookshelf last night, so I cleaned out my other one to make room. I have lots of duplicate titles I’ve bought over the years up for grabs- as well as ARCs for book bloggers. I’d love to trade YA titles or if have a book off of my wish list let’s swap. No books to trade, no worries. I’m selling the paperbacks and hardbacks and sending the ARCS for the price of shipping + the padded envelope.
Most of these are like new, a few have some minor shelf wear or have been read once. I will only will ship to US mailing addresses via USPS media mail. Please fill out this form if interested. Once I email back to confirm, payment must be made to heatoddgardner(at)yahoo(dot)com via paypal before books will be shipped. There is a space on the form for questions and comments. Thanks!
As books are claimed I’ll mark them in red ink.

Best Reads of 2009

28 Dec, 2009 by in maggie stiefvater, shiver, YA fiction 5 comments

I had challenged myself to read 100 books this year. I don’t think I will quite make it but I am close! It has been an adventure which our whole family has enjoyed. Hubby just finished an 800 page book called “The Undaunted” a couple of days ago. The kids are wracking up a wish list on Amazon. We have learned to love the library and Barnes and Noble now knows me by name.

Here are my top ten (okay… more) reads of this year.

•Lament: The Faerie Queen’s Deception (Books of Faerie, #1) Stiefvater, Maggie
•Ballad: The Gathering of Faerie (Books of Faerie, #2) Stiefvater, Maggie
•Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1) Stiefvater, Maggie…I can not wait for the release of the sequel, Linger
•Princess Academy Hale, Shannon
•Hush, Hush Fitzpatrick, Becca
•Fire Cashore, Kristin
•Austenland Hale, Shannon
•The Smile Napoli, Donna Jo
•The Hourglass Door Mangum, Lisa
•City of Glass (Mortal Instruments, #3) Clare, Cassandra
City of Ashes (Mortal Instruments, #2)
City of Bones (Mortal Instruments, #1)
•Uglies (Uglies, #1) Westerfeld, Scott
•A Child’s Journey out of Autism: One Family’s Story of Living in Hope and Finding a Cure Whiffen, Leeann
.The Dark Divine Despain, Bree

I asked all of my friends on Facebook what their favorite read of the year was and here is the list they came up with…

Kate-Barefoot…sad but good!
Kirsten- Catching Fire
Erin-Deadeye Dick
Paula-The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
Michele-I had to look at my good reads – My Favorite non Fiction book was Boundaries. My Favorite Fiction – Pompeii by Robert Harris (a really easy read but I have been there so it was fun to really be able to visualize things)
Georgia-Shiver, Wintergirls, North of Beautiful, Poison Study… the list goes on 😉
Jeff-The Sword Of Shannara by Terry Brooks… ( read the trilogy)
Jasmine-Poison Study was AWESOME:)
Heidi-The Hunger games series!

If you are on Goodreads, let’s hook up and if you are a publisher, blog owner or author…please send me some ARCS so I don’t go broke! As my dad always says : “He who dies with the most books wins.”
