September Wishlist and August RAK Gifts

Random Acts of Kindness (or RAK) is a fantastic idea by Book Soulmates. The idea is to send a fellow book blogger a free gift, as a random act of kindess.

In the month of August, I sent two books to two different bloggers. I only sent them two days ago though, so I'm going to keep quiet as I want them to be a surprise! I hope you two enjoy them.

Three wonderful girls were lovely enough to send me three books. I received Crank by Ellen Hopkins from Harpreet (A Spark of Interest), Beauty by Robin McKinley from Kay (Kayleigh's Reviews) and Sticky Fingers by Niki Burnham from Emma (Belle Books). Thank you all so, so much! I have yet to read any of these yet, but hopefully with my book buying ban challenge thingymabob I'll be able to get to them soon!

I've decided to put my wishlist on my blog this month, rather than putting it on Amazon. It's easier for people to see on here, and Amazon takes a while to scroll through for me. Here's the top ten YA books that I am dying to read:

1. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
2. Populazzi by Elise Allen
3. The Implosion of Aggie Winchester by Lara Zielin
4. EON by Alison Goodman
5. The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong
6. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
7. White Cat by Holly Black
8. Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston
9. The DUFF by Kody Keplinger
10. Hereafter by Tara Hudson

If any of you my followers are participating, feel free to share your wishlists with me in the comments below. I'll take a look and see if I can offer you anything!


  1. Oooh! You have to tell us what and who you RAKed eventually! I want to know so badly. Haha. It's always fun to read everyone's RAK posts!
