Showing off my May R.A.K.

For those of you not in the know (which leaves me flabbergasted by the way), the Book Soulmates (a.k.a Isalys and Vanessa) have this really cool community feature called:

Book Soulmates
(Click on the button for the full set of details)

Can I just say that I was overwhelmed by the kindness of strangers this month?  The sign up list gets pretty long so I wasn’t really expecting anyone to reach out and R.A.K. me.  LOL!  R.A.K. me…oh that’s a good one.  *Ahem* Er, sorry.  I easily distract myself.  Anywho, imagine my surprise when the following readers/bloggers reached out and offered me some of my wish list items.  Seriously, you guys are awesome!  I’d like to send a huge THANK YOU and bear hug is to these lovely ladies:

Michelle over at Michelle's Ramblins who R.A.K.ed me with:
Tsunami Blue
This one’s been sitting on my wish list for a while so I’m definitely looking forward to giving it a read.

Jennifer (a.k.a RainMaiden) who R.A.K.ed me with:
The Greyfriar
I’ve heard AMAZING things about this book and am really excited that Jen gave me an opportunity to check it out.

Christie over at The Fiction Enthusiast who R.A.K.ed me with:
To Kill A Warlock
Another one that’s been on my wish list for way too long.  I’ve heard it’s a fun series so I’m definitely looking forward to giving this a read.

The great thing about this feature (other than the receiving which is always nice) is the opportunity it gives you to give back, which is something I’m all about.  Here are the R.A.K.s I sent out this month:

Vanessa of Book Soulmates received:
Secret History of Elizabeth Tudor

Michelle of Michelle’s Book Blog received:
The Demon Trapper's Daughter

Jennifer (a.k.a. RainMaiden) received:

Ash from Smash Attack Reads! received:
Before I Fall

Rachel from Endless Reading received:
Across the Universe

Crystal from Elegantly Bound Books received:

All in all I thought this was a really cool experience and I look forward to participating again next month.

A huge thanks going to the Book Soulmates for coming up with such a great blog feature.
