You're The Expert: Books Received As Holiday Gifts


Obviously you're the expert on what you got in your stocking this holiday season, so tell us:
  • Which books did you get?
  • Which ones are you most excited for?
  • Buying any books with Christmas money?
I'm going to share a little here... forgive me. But, I'm excited about my books and I want to tell you about them!

My sister-in-law bought me three books, Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog, Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George, and Pirate Latitudes by Michael Crichton. Monster bought me Fallen by Lauren Kate. I'm excited to read all of them, but I think I'm going to pick up Princess of the Midnight Ball first, maybe. I keep flip-flopping on my decision.

My book blogger holiday swap gifter, WilowRaven of Red House Books gave me Hush: An Irish Princess Tale which has been on my wishlist for a really long time too. I was soooo thrilled when I opened it! Thanks Emily :o) You are all kinds of rockin'!

I got Splendor and The Van Alen Legacy! My birthday is New Years Day so I'm hoping to get a few more books then too :)

I received GARDENS OF THE MOON by Steven Erikson. Unknown to me, though he seems to have a lot of books under his belt (this is the first novel in an ongoing series, I believe).

I got Thirteen Reasons Why from mom and with Christmas money from dad I bought Chasing Windmills, The Red Queen's Daughter, Crank/Glass box set, and City of Ashes. :D
