I found some books under my Christmas tree…

Merry Christmas

I had a lovely day of actually getting up later than normal, a leisurely morning of opening presents with my parents and Clary (it was her first ever Christmas!), and then a fun afternoon and evening spent with family at my grandparent’s house! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas (if you celebrate) and got lots of books of course! I just had to show you the goodies that I found under the Christmas tree this year!

Twas the night before Christmas…

Actually on Christmas Eve I received a package from Scholastic with one of my most anticipated books of next year:

Salt & Stone by Victoria Scott, the sequel to Fire & Flood!

As you can read in my review (^) I really loved the first book and that ending was amazing! I cannot wait to dive into this one VERY soon (so probably NEXT)!

Christmas Day

From my amazing parents:


My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories edited by Stephanie Perkins
Four: A Divergent Collection by Veronica Roth (signed)
Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld (signed)
Endgame: The Calling by James Frey and Nils Johnson-Shelton (signed)
Harry Potter: The Creature Vault by Jody Revenson
The World of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin

The three signed books were ones I knew about that I got at B&N on Black Friday and I can’t wait to finally have them to read! MTLGTM looks adorable! I normally don’t read anthologies or story collections, but there is something about holiday ones…(I’ve read Let It Snow by John Green & Friends, too). As for the two “keepsake” kind of books, I’m already loving paging through them and just randomly reading pages!

From my wonderful grandparents:


A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin
Diamonds in the Rough by Michelle Madow
The Ice Dragon by George R.R. Martin
Sanctum by Madeleine Roux
The Hogwarts Library Collection by J.K. Rowling

I CAN FINALLY READ MORE GoT! It’s been over a year since I finished ASoS, so it is way past time that I get to reading this one! I also wanted The Ice Dragon because it’s set in the same world as GoT. I can’t get enough… Sanctum and Diamonds in the Rough are both sequels that I’ve been DYING to get my hands on so I’m a very happy camper!

I hope you all had lovely days, and if you still have people to celebrate with like I do — enjoy it!

What did you guys get for Christmas, if you celebrate?

  1. Oh, that is so nice! And you have Veronica Roth’s signature! AWESOME. I got 19 books this Christmas haha, but those you got look fantastic!! And I took advantage of a Black Friday too (those are pretty cool!) Enjoy your reads and very lovely post πŸ™‚

  2. Okay, you are going to LOVE Afterworlds it was my second favorite book of 2014. And I was so close to finishing Asylum but just couldn’t, I wasn’t too into the story.
