Why I Love Wednesdays... Favorite Book Sent/Received in 2011 AND Giveaway

Reflections of a Bookaholic

I am returning with my new feature... Why I love which takes place on Wednesdays. Today's proclamation of love concerns our Favorite books that we sent or received

Why I Love... Mockingjay, Divergent, and Between Shades of Gray

One of the greatest things about being a reader is that I love gifting books just as much as I love to receive them.  There is just something about sending a book in the mail.  I'm so excited for the person receiving the book on the other end.  I'm nervous because I want them to love it as much as I did.  On the other hand, I LOVE getting books in the mail.  It's like getting a birthday surprises during the week.  I don't participate in IMM for personal reasons but sometimes I just want to gush about some of my luck.

This year, I found myself most excited about receiving Mockingjay, Divergent and Between Shades of Gray, two of which I shared the wealth by sending to a fellow reader.  I remember checking the mail excitedly for like a month.  I had seen review after review saying such wonderful things about them and I just couldn't believe I had won them in a giveaway.  What luck!!  They were all wonderful (and free).  You can find my reviews for Mockingjay, Divergent, and Between Shades of Gray by clicking on the links.

I've gifted Divergent and Between Shades of Gray but I still have Mockingjay.  If you haven't read this epic read or you just want this beautiful Hardback book, then go ahead and click here.  U.S. addresses only.  I'll draw a random name next Wednesday, January 4.

Which books sent/received do you love? Feel free to create your own post and link up.  Don't want to create an entire post?  Tell me your favorites in the comments.  Thanks for stopping by for another week of Why I Love Wednesdays!!

If you want to play along, feel free to grab the image (there is a button on the right sidebar now) and link your post in the linky. Here goes.

When naming your link, please choose the name of your post. Mine would say "Why I Love...Rhett Butler."

    I love to send a book to a fellow blogger especially if it's one they'd like to read. I actually received Between Shades of Gray from s fellow blogger and I can't wait to read it!
