Something Neato

A few weeks ago,someone awesome in my Wild Things YA Goodreads Group I keep telling you about had the idea of doing a bookmark swap which sort of evolved into a handmade awesomeness extravaganza.  Because what everyone made was so lovely, I thought I'd share them with you and encourage you to make a bookmark of your favorite book as a gift for someone.  I guarantee it will brighten their day!

Where the picture boxes touch, the front and back images are shown.
I would suggest clicking on the collage to get a better view of the loveliness.
  1. The Last Unicorn á la Paula
  2. The Lightning Thief á la Becky
  3. White Cat á la Robyn
  4. Graceling á la Diana
  5. I Capture the Castle á la Fiona
  6. The Diary of Anne Frank á la Caroline
  7. Daddy Longlegs á la Kandice
  8. The Lightning Thief á la Donna
  9. Fallen á la Amy
  10. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime (left) + Alice in Wonderland (right) to Becky á la me [also pictured: another Alice bookmark (middle), which is going to Velvet!  She doesn't know yet!  Well, now...]
  11.  The Hunger Games á la Leslie
  12. The Knife of Never Letting Go á la Angela (she was the someone awesome who had this idea!  This one is also my favorite!)
There's one more that didn't make it into the collage -- and that's the one Felina sent to me!  But there's a reason.  It has its own story.
So, almost 2 weeks ago, I told you about the BWB Children's Book Week sale, where books where 5/$10.  I got a whole mess of books, and one of them was a book I had seen a few times but really had no idea whether I would like.  It was called Flipped, and had a cute little cover of an upside-down chick.
Didn't know if it was any good, but I bought it anyway...Pure impulse buy.
And here is the bookmark Felina sent me, from one of her favorite books:

Is that not the freakiest coincidence?  Weird...

Anywho, aren't they all fab?  Thanks for this idea, Angela!
If you want to get in on future rounds of the Bookmark Swap, go to Goodreads and join the Wild Things group, and let the crafty fun begin!


    1. Those are awesome! Btw.. Flipped is pretty good. Although, well just read it. It's almost about stalking haha. It's a great story. We did it for a book club with 6th graders last year at the school I worked at and it was a hit.

    2. Totally awesome and totally inspiring. Thanks--this could be a perfect idea for a book group I run. I love the charm one in particular.

    3. great idea! i like the knife of never letting go one too -even though i didn't read it yet.
      alice? oops, now i know ;-D

    4. So cool! I totally want to make a bookmark now!

    5. They are so lovely! The Ness one is awesome, I agree.


    Tell me all your thoughts.
    Let's be best friends.
