Musing Monday #7

This is a weekly meme hosted by shouldbereading, which is where you can post your musings of the week. This can be describing a reading habit, what books you've bought, what books you want, what you're reading or any rant you can think of book related.



This week I'm having a little muse about my blog. When I started it earlier this year I honestly had no idea what to expect. I just wanted to be able to share my love of books with others. So far I have been surprised by just how much I love it, even when the time I spend blogging could be used for reading! I have found that other bloggers are some of the most amazingly supportive people I could hope to meet. I am loving blogging so far and it is something I will definitely keep doing.

To celebrate not only my ridiculous happiness at my blog, but also the replacement of my laptop that died on me *sad face*, I am hosting my first giveaway. I had no idea where to start but I am excited, so feel free to take part.

I am quite excited as people have actually taken part, I really wasn't sure if anyone would care. But if that was the case, I guess I could have treated myself to two books. I'm quite excited to see who wins, wish I hadn't set it for a month but I just wasn't sure if anyone would take part. It's also given me a way to share my love of Tabitha Suzuma and her wonderful book, Forbidden.

The Switch
by 
Dawn Pendleton & Andrea Heltsley

Honor and Faith haven't switched places since they were kids. When Honor begs her twin sister to go on a date with her boyfriend, Cameron, Faith reluctantly agrees. The problem is that she lets things go too far.Now Honor and Cameron have broken up and he won't stop calling Faith, claiming he felt something more for her. The scary thing is, Faith felt it too. The problem, however, is the one rule that sisters and best friends abide by: don't date their exes.
Honor has her own problems. Breaking it off with Cameron was the right thing to do, but now his best friend, Parker, won't leave her alone. The more time they spend together, the more Honor starts to heal. Suddenly, Honor sees Parker as more than just a friend who cares - and she wants more.
Neither sister wants to complicate things further and cross those boundaries, but they can't stop their emotions for the guys in their lives. Turns out, the switch is the one things that has changed them forever.

Not too sure about this one, haven't started it yet but not sure if it's quite for me. I received it for review though and am intrigued to see what I make of it.

  6. It's great your so excited about your blog. I also enjoy blogging but for some reason I find hardly anyone is following me. Is there a trick to it other than more interesting content? Here's my musing: http://daystarz.wordpress.com/2013/11/05/musing-mondays-14/
