I adore Secret Santas, so signed up for two this year!
I love shopping for fellow booklovers, and hope that they are as excited as I am to get book goodies in the mail! There's nothing like the feeling of seeing a box sitting at your doorstep, and I wanted to share with you the awesome gifts I received. Wish I had been as creative, but there's always next year... ;)
I've been wanting a copy of Hold Me Closer, Necromancer for ages, so was thrilled when I received a copy in my first Secret Santa gift box! Love the name of this one, and the Elton John song runs through my head every time I see it. Every. Single. Time. And what can I say about Sirensong except that Jenna Black is made of awesome! There was major squeeing when I opened this box! And yes, there was a happy dance too. Not to mention the chocolate. Did you see the chocolate? I <3 chocolate! Thank you PNR Bookworm!
Not familiar with Deceived by the Others or Under Attack, but I read the synopsis for both books and they look like great reads! I've heard of L.J. Smith but haven't read her yet. Dark Visions was a little scary looking at first because it's so huge, but it's actually 3 books in one, so think it will be a great introduction to her work. I love discovering new authors through my fellow bookaholics! Included in my gift box was a weekly planner for 2012, a gift box of Starburst, and awesome bookmarks. I love bookmarks! Love Jennifer Estep, so was happy to get four of hers. And the penguin bookmark is just too cute! Don't know how Kels at Kelsey's Book Corner knew I collected bookmarks, but thank you so much!
As I may have mentioned once or twice, I love bookmarks. So when I saw that Missie B over at The Unread Reader was having a Holiday Bookmark Exchange, I couldn't wait to sign up! Received a cute Yertle the Turtle bookmark and a gorgeous one featuring the art of Jessica Hamilton. And how awesome is it that Missie has bookmarks for her blog? What a great idea! Thank you so much!
Had a blast with the Secret Santa and bookmark exchanges! Love getting surprises in the mail! Hope that my recipients are as happy with their surprises as I am. Let me know if you received any Secret Santa gifts, as I'd love to check them out!
