Wow what a week that was, very hectic with work especially on Friday! Friday night drinks after work with my work friends and then dinner and drinks with the Aussie and brother were just what the Doctor ordered and now its holiday time for 2 weeks!
I love reading as you all know and so whenever I see anything reading related, especially book swaps I am always keen to take part.
I saw a post on the Endless Bliss blog asking for bloggers to take part in a book swap during June because they also love reading. The rules were simple, you sign up for the swap and are then matched with someone else who is participating and then spend a few weeks getting to know their books likes and dislikes as well as a bit about them generally. Then post the book by 15 June ready for it to arrive before 20 June for the link up.
I was matched up with Felecia from the Hello Felecia blog. Felecia is from Florida and loves to write, she is currently working on publishing her first Young Adult novel which sounds like its going to be fantastic!
It’s been really lovely getting to know Felecia and it was such fun choosing a book for her that I hope she will enjoy! The book I chose (I won’t reveal it here yet in case it hasn’t arrived yet) is one I really enjoyed reading and is part of a series so I hope that Felecia enjoys the book and reads the whole series as it’s really thought provoking but also intriguing, making you really question what you would do in the same position.
I was very excited to receive the book she chose for me which is called Water Walker by Ted Dekker.
The back of the book says:
“My name is Alice Ringwald, but the man who kidnapped me says that’s a lie.”
Thirteen-year-old orphan Alice Ringwald has no memory beyond six months ago. The only life she knows is the new one she’s creating one day at a time with the loving couple that recently adopted her and gave her new hope. That hope, however, is shattered one night when she is abducted by a strange man. In a frantic FBI man hunt, the kidnapper vanished with Alice.
So begins Water Walker, a modern-day parable that examines the staggering power of forgiveness, and reminds us that it’s possible to live free of the hurt that keeps our souls in chains.”
This sounds like the perfect book for me based upon the books I would normally choose and it’s on my kindle ready to read as soon as possible and I plan to do a book review on it once completed.
