Hundreds of books were donated to our #blinddatewithabook coffee house! It was tons of work wrapping them up but so fun to see what people chose and the big reveal inside! 📖💜📚

Has anyone tried the company #blinddatewithabook? I've been wanting to order from them for a while, & a couple of weeks ago I finally did. I think I've found a new addiction! 😩 The international shipping was faster than expected, & the packaging is so perfect I almost don't want to open them!! I did a #Horror theme, & I'm sure there's bound to be a #Monster in this stack! #ScreamathonPhotoChallenge #Scarathlon #ChillingPhotoChallenge #TeamStoker

suvata I have ordered from them before and, yes, it is totally addictive. I think I still have three or four I haven‘t opened yet. They make great gifts too! 3mo
lele1432 @suvata yes!! I'm thinking it could be great for swaps lol. As I've become addicted to those too. 😂 3mo

4thhouseontheleft The packaging looks so lovely! I have a hard time buying goblins date books for myself, but that is a fun idea to include in swaps! 3mo
TheAromaofBooks Oh no this looks unfortunately reasonably priced! This could be a problem!! 😆 3mo
lele1432 @4thhouseontheleft yes I'm definitely going to keep them in mind for future swaps! Might add as an extra surprise book. 😊 3mo
lele1432 @TheAromaofBooks very unfortunate!! 🤣🤣🤣 3mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz Hi Kaleah! Was wondering if you've received your book? 3mo
lele1432 @Jee_HookedOnBookz Hi Jee!! I will check the mail this evening! 😊 3mo

I wasn‘t sure about this book after the first chapter or two but then it very quickly became engrossing, interesting and a little bit scary.

Some of the ‘experiments‘ carried out were very 😲!

This was my #blinddatewithabook swap from the #readingretreat so thank you very much Emma @Oryx !

Velvetfur Ohh yes I really liked this one! 7mo
TrishB I have this on the tbr! 7mo
RachelO Nice photo! 7mo
julesG Oh, I still haven't put this on my stack! 7mo

This is just an incredibly small portion of my personal library that I still need to read 😬 I love books and I love buying them...oops! I am slowly getting through the list...with studying, my personal reading has slowed down 😞 Also, please excuse my terrible crocheting!

#TBR #PersonalLibrary #BlindDateWithABook #MurderMystery #BornACrime #TrevorNoah #RobertGalbraith #UnfuckYourself

JohannaRose I soo wish I had a little library! I‘m slowly acquiring books as I go lol it‘s a process! I wish they weren‘t so expensive! And your crocheting is beautiful! 😊 9mo
MirandaLeighBee @JohannaRose thank you :) I wish I could say this was all I had to read...but that‘s not the case...I have a lot lol 9mo
MirandaLeighBee @JohannaRose also, one of my fave things to do is browse the book section at thrift stores...it‘s where I get a lot of my books actually 9mo
JohannaRose @MirandaLeighBee Oh that‘s such a good idea! Thank you! 😃 9mo

Behold my rather restrained #bookhaul from yesterday‘s #atxbookstorecrawl 😄 I visited 12 bookstores and only walked away with 5 books, I‘m quite proud of myself. Master Keaton and The Dead Hand were recommendations by staff at the comic book stores I visited. Ghost bride was the #blinddatewithabook I got from BookPeople. Here‘s Your Hat... was a book used for a photo prompt I ended up buying. Isola just sounded interesting. Fun times ahead!

Eyelit Good job guessing the book @llwheeler & @erzascarletbookgasm 😃 @Tamra 9mo
llwheeler Yay! Hope you like Ghost Bride, I really enjoyed it! 9mo

Spent all day yesterday on a bookstore crawl doing a photo scavenger hunt for #indiebookstoreday (feel free to check out my Instagram for all the fun)
One of the bookstores had a #blinddatewithabook display - and this one called to me. Will post the book inside the wrapping (as well as the rest of my #bookhaul) later today. In the meantime, any guesses on this mystery book? 😃
#atx #atxbookstorecrawl

Tamra It sounds intriguing and I want to know! 9mo
llwheeler Ooh, I guess 9mo
Tamra @llwheeler that seems like a fit and I‘m stacking! 9mo
erzascarletbookgasm My guess is The Ghost Bride 9mo

Received this from a patron today ☺️! It‘s a survey she returned regarding our #BlindDateWithABook Display. This sort of thing makes me happy! 😊


Updrifting I loved Rebecca. Haunting and dreamy. 10mo
Samplergal I love that idea. My library doesn‘t do the fun stuff you do. ☹️ 10mo
Emilymdxn Great thing for a library to do! My school used to do this it was a lot of fun. Wish I had access to it for grownups 10mo

This was my #blinddatewithabook pick from Valentine‘s day. I was initially disappointed since I don‘t really do teen or fantasy.

BUT, I was was pleasantly surprised. I was riveted. I found myself rooting for Mare and trying to figure out her love triangle. And I did not predict that ending.

Looks like I need to get my hands on the rest of the series. 😀
