Our Christmas Book Loot

And I thought we weren't  going to get as many books this year as last:

These are the books the whole family received, not just me. Here's a list in case you can't see them well (though clicking on the picture helps that too:)

The Doctor Who Visual Dictionary
The Most Human Human
Daughter of Smoke and Bone
The Girl of Fire and Thorns
Clockwork Prince
Clockwork Angel
Steve Jobs
Shadow Moon
Shadow Star
Shadow Dawn
The Iron Daughter
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
Slaughter House Five
Okay for Now
Return to Exile
Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever
The Iron Queen
City of Fallen Angels
City of Glass
Destiny of the Republic

Whew. I really better get out of my reading slump FAST!

And here's what I got from my Secret Santa Exchange blogger.... who only revealed herself as Heather:

What a perfect present, because as you know I've recently had a little issue with The Iron Daughter, what with the missing pages from the book I had and then the store where it came from being totally out. So when I opened this up and saw a new copy of this book, I was very excited and have since been reading pretty quickly through this book! I'm very excited about the other book too, which also makes me giggle, because it's the same book I gave to my exchange person!

Thank you Heather!

Thank you Deanna and Jenny and Santa Claus and SIL Katie and Grandma and Grandpa and everyone! It's been a wonderful bookish haul!


  1. Nothing like a Christmas filled with books!! Happy reading! :)

  2. You are so very welcome!
    I am very glad that you have not read FIRE yet - I was slightly concerned that you may have, but did not see it posted on your blog (I searched). I think you will like it well.
    SLAUGHTERHOUSE FIVE is a different read, but a very good one. I just read it myself, and will be posting a review within the next couple of weeks. I do hope you will like it.

    It is time to be done with the reading slump....not just you, but me too.

  3. Wow! That's a ton of books! I only got one, the one you gave me. Thanks BTW. :) That's so cool that you got Iron Daughter after the whole mess up with your copy. Looks like you indeed need to get out of that reading slump. ;)

  4. Wow! Lovely book haul! a lot of people have been going through a reading slump this year. I was going through a blogging slump, personal things in my life. I hope your haul of books gets you back to reading again, Suey. Happy 2012 to you and your family!

  5. Peppermint: THANKS!

    Ibeeeg: It IS time to be done with the slump... very much time. I look forward to both the books you sent me. Thanks again!

    Jenny: Only one? Really? You didn't already have it did you? I couldn't remember. I guess this pile looks like an especially lot because I stick in everyone's books... because I feel like I can read them all!

    Susan: Thanks and Happy 2012 to you too!

  6. Wow! How fun. There's nothing better than books for Christmas. I ordered a few for myself, but I didn't wait 'til Christmas to open them (I told everyone that I was SO GOOD this year that I got to have my presents early)! My son got CABIN FEVER as well and my daughter got a Nancy Drew set and TUESDAYS AT THE CASTLE by Jessica Day George. I ADORE giving and receiving books for Christmas!

  7. a great selection of books you have there! Happy Reading!


  8. What a haul! I am pre-ordering Bitterblue at the moment with my Christmas gift cards. :)
