The idea behind Random Acts of Kindness, or RAK, is to show a little love to fellow bloggers. People put forward their wishlists and sign up and send books to each other. It puts a smile on people’s faces, and that’s always a good thing, especially in the current economy. Hosted by Book Soulmates.

The Rules:
  • Please sign-up each month that you can participate (and by participate, we mean give as well as receive).
  • Show off your participation by grabbing our RAK button (code is in the sidebar).
  • Create a wish list (on Amazon, Goodreads, or your blog etc) and post it in the Google Doc located in each R.A.K post for the month.
  • If you choose to do a R.A.K for someone, check out their wish list and contact that blogger directly for their information.
  • Once you receive a RAK, send us an our new email to [rakbybooksoulmates @ gmail . com] so that we can update the Google Doc. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU SEND EMAILS TO THIS ADDRESS!
  • E-book participation is limited to files being gifted directly to a person from the e-book store. Amazon’s Kindle Store is set up to allow this, as well as the Kobo store and we believe Barnes & Noble as well.
  • At the end of the month, SHOW US YOUR R.A.K by making a “RAK Wrap-Up” post.  This post should include who you SENT gifts to as well who you RECEIVED gifts from :)

OPEN TO EVERYONE including all our International brethren!
Remember, there’s always the Book Depository and they offer FREE shipping!

Easy peezy!!

October Wrap-up

I wasn’t actually going to sign up in October, fun fact, because I knew I had a couple of giveaways coming up and such, but then Hanna (lovely, lovely Hanna) of Booking in Heels announced she was going to send me Stolen as an RAK so I plopped myself in the list, and then Sarah from Whispering Words offered to send me a couple of books as well (Stray and The Novice)! They’re all fantastic and I can’t wait to get started, especially Stolen and Stray!! Thank you to both of you! Loves you. <3

November Sign-up

So we were going to be moving in November but early December is now looking more likely. 7th of December is my birthday so.. I don’t know how you guys prefer to do birthday RAKs (before or after). I’m a bit new to that, obviously, RAK hasn’t been going longer than a few months.

This month I’m after urban fantasy, fairy tale/fantasy type stories, if they’re dark, even better, horror – I’m not big on gore or scaring myself to sleep but I love a good dark tale and Pretty When She Dies has got me craving good horror, so perhaps zombie books, though others are welcome, and I’m always after epic fantasy. I do try to keep my wishlist updated and that is always in my sidebar, if you find/know of something you think I might like that I might not have wishlisted, by all means you can ask me, I don’t know of everything and it might be good! Mostly craving dark fiction at the moment though and need to read more fantasy/fairy tales to help me better understand my own novel’s concept. Mine is to be a dark fairy tale but I’m open to anything at the moment. If you’d like to send me ebooks I do have an Amazon.com account and I’m happy to work Smashwords, but check with me first, a lot of the books on my ‘most wanted’ I’m more interested in hard copies. I RANT!

Particularly interested in:

  • Kelley Armstrong‘s books. I have Stolen, read Bitten (don’t own it), but any others.
  • Rhiannon Frater‘s As The World Dies. Craving me some zombies. And she rocks.
  • Karen Marie Moning‘s Fever series. They sound epic.
  • Maria V. Snyder‘s Glass trilogy. Loved Study, need these.
  • Terry Pratchett‘s Discworld books. I have a fair few but there are a lot I am missing. Best ask.
  • Brandon Sanderson‘s The Way of Kings. I need to read this!
  • Erin Morgenstern‘s The Night Circus. There’s something intriguing about creepy circuses.
I’m always interested in vanity books as well. Books I might have an old, tatty copy of.. or an ecopy or an arc and would love to have in the editions I’ve listed here. They are purely for shelf-pretties, though there are a few I haven’t read yet.
