Hello, hello, hello! It might be a little later than planned but I wanted to share with you my Christmas book haul! This year my Mumma went all out and got me the books on my list, my sister got me one I was after for ages and then I might have purchased some with Christmas money…
Sea Witch – Sarah Henning
I’m a big lover of The Little Mermaid and there have been a few more novels creeping out so when I heard about Sea Witch I needed it. I’m intrigued to read this take on the backstory of the Sea Witch.
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing – Hank Green
I held off buying this so I could add it to my Christmas list and I have heard nothing but good things about this! As Hank Green’s debut I have my fingers crossed I will love it!
Snotgirl – Bryan Lee O’Malley & Leslie Hung
I didn’t expect to get this, I read the first two issues while I was at uni and then didn’t get a chance to carry on. My friend Sarah surprised me with this for Christmas and I loved it. I’ve already finished it and can’t wait to pick up the next volume.
(Don’t) Call Me Crazy – Edited by Kelly Jensen
I’ve wanted this for such a long time! I’m always interested in seeing different experiences on mental health and there are some amazing writers in here Emery Lord, Meredith Russo, and Victoria Schwab to name a few.
#MurderTrending – Gretchen McNeil
This one is a little out there but it sounds really interesting. The premise is using an app so that criminals get a taste of their own medicine. However, Dee isn’t going down for a crime she didn’t commit.
Anne Boleyn A King’s Obsession – Alison Weir
For the longest time I loved reading books about the Tudors and after seeing Six last year it sparked my interest again. My lovely Lucy got me this, remembering that Anne Boleyn is my favourite!
Books I Bought
The Curses – Laure Eve
It’s finally here! I have a copy! Although I’m worried that might be because a certain bookshop put them out too early… Either way I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens next in the Graces world.
Paper Avalanche – Lisa Williamson
I’ve loved Lisa Williamson’s previous two books and read them super quickly so when I found out there would be a third I was on it. Again I think this was released a little earlier than it should have been but I’m not sure.
I don’t know too much going into this one as the blurb is a little more ambiguous than previous novels but I have faith after loving the previous two books!
Becoming – Michelle Obama
Michelle Obama is one of the most incredible people. I wanted to hear her story as soon as I could. Originally I got the audiobook, however, at 19 hours long I was impatient. I ordered the book and it’s just as good as I hoped it would be so far.
101 Essays To Change The Way You Think – Brianna Wiest
I really want to read more books like this about positive thinking and all that. This looked like a really good collection to dip in and out of when I need some inspiration.
Now I have no idea where to start! So many books, so little time. Did you get any books for Christmas? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
