What I Got For Christmas Was...

It's time to wrap up this little holiday feature of mine...with showing you guys which books I actually received for Christmas! It was a very bookish Christmas this year (yay!!) and I was given a lot of the books on my wishlist :D

So, without further ado...on to the books!
The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton
Shadows on the Moon by Zoe Marriott
Dear Jane Austen: A Heroine's Guide to Life and Love by Patrice Hannon
Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien (I've already read this one, got totally sucked into it!)

Nightspell by Leah Cypess
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (I read this one at the beginning of this year but wanted a copy of my own!)
Legend by Marie Lu
Children of the Lamp: The Akhenaten Adventure by P. B. Kerr
Ecstasia by Francesca Lia Block

Crossed by Ally Condie
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta

And then there was a big surprise from my dad...

...he bought my mom, my sister, and me all Sony e-readers! I admit I have been resisting e-books because I love physical books so much — but now that I have an e-reader I really have no excuse. I suppose I shall have to give in and accept the inevitable!

Anyway, between all these books from Christmas and books I have for review, I now have an absolutely massive (and kind of overwhelming) number of books sitting in my room, dying to be read! So I am going to be very busy over the next little while...

What books did you receive over the holidays? If you'd like to share, feel free to leave a link to your post in the comments!


  1. I hope you enjoy Anna & the French Kiss! I absolutely love the book! Awesome books you got. Hope you've had a wonderful christmas! Happy reading! :)

  2. Yay for awesome books and eeeeeee for your e-reader! I understand the hesitation completely, but I've grown so attached to mine. I hope you love it!

  3. Aw how awesome. That's so cute that your dad got you all matching e-readers! Happy reading to you and your family.

  4. Hooray! So many books! :D And a fabulous ereader! You must have been really good this year ;) I just read Anna and the French Kiss, I can't BELIEVE I waited this long to get to it!! I loved it! Enjoy all your pretties and your shiny ereader! I also have a Sony and I love it :)

  5. Brilliant Christmas book haul- lucky you! I love the colour of your e-reader, very pretty :) Shadows on the Moon looks particularly good- yay for fairytales. Enjoy :D

  6. Great haul! I didn't keep up with the weekly wishlist like I wanted to...but I have done a wrap-up:

  7. Birthmarked!! So good. <3 Loved Anna too of course. And The Piper's Son <3333 I definitely need a copy of that one, but I think I'll wait for the paperback.

    That so cool you got an eReader! I really love my Kobo. I still read physical books, but I love my eReader for eGalleys and library books, and because it's so easy to take everywhere in my purse. Plus it's so compact and you don't have to worry about losing your page, etc. I think there are definite benefits to both types of reading, but either way I figure you're enjoying a great story.


I love comments, so post away!
