Christmas has been and gone (and we completed Blogmas, woo) which means for many of us, our book hauls are coming. I absolutely love seeing what books others got for Christmas. In fact our group chat of bloggers made sure to put our book hauls in the chat on Christmas morning.
This year i requested two books from my parents, and pretty much everything else was a surprise. I usually give them a list of a few books i might want to push them in the right direction for present giving. Luckily the two i received i’m very excited about.
Me and Sophie also have a tradition (if you can call it that, it’s a relativity new thing) of giving books with a theme. We’ll pick a random theme, this year was ‘prize winners’ and gift each other books from that theme. We almost ended with a disaster (or funny story) this year when it turns out we very nearly purchased the same book, and ended up with books that won the Women’s Fiction Prize anyway.
Other than that the books i received were very nice surprises. I’m really pleased this year and Christmas has given me plenty of great reading material for the first few months of the year. What i got from friends and family was:
- The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur
- The Corbyn Comic Book
- Outcast vol.2 by Robert Kirkman
- The Power by Naomi Alderman
- Eliza And Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
- A Gentleman’s Guide To Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
I want to say a massive thank you to my friends and family which gifted me these books. I’ve been given the opportunity to read some books i’ve wanted to for a long time, try something new and continue with the Outcast series (something i’ve wanted to do for a very very long time).
I’ll make sure to let you know how these books are! Leave in the comments some of the books that you got for the holidays this year!
