Helllloooo 2015! I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday season and that you all rang in the new year in style - or you know, snuggled up with a good book ;) Personally, I kicked off the new year with some much deserved shopping ~ which was followed up by taking one last trip to Middle-Earth, to see The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. SO.GOOD. I was one of those people who wasn't sure if the books should have been split in three films, but after seeing them all, I wouldn't have it any other way. I adore Martin Freeman as Bilbo and just seeing more Elves, Wizards, Dwarves and Dragons are totally worth it to me ♥
This is my first official StS post containing my Holiday loot! I always end up with two Xmas posts (at least) since my mom is always good for Amazon gift cards (woot!)...but then, we have to wait for the books to arrive. So - stay tuned next week for those goodies. Today, I'm sharing all the AMAZING bookish presents I got from friends, bloggers and all around awesome peeps:
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater (The Raven Cycle #3) -Thanks Lee! A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness Thanks Aylee! The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski (The Winner's Trilogy #1) Thanks Leah! I love you ladies to the moon and back ♥ And not just because you know me so well ;)
I also got Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, thanks to Leah! (again, hihi) and my cousin luckily gifted me the next books: Dragonfly in Amber & Voyager - so thanks Anne!
I also was lucky enough to get some bookish (and non-bookish) gifts such as an amazing Harry Potter tote bag, gorgeous magnetic bookmarks, winter socks, candy canes, chocolate and lots of lovely xmas cards so thanks to Aylee, Ula, Reanna and Nikki XOXOX
I stuck with pictures of the bookish gifts - mainly because the socks have been worn and thoroughly enjoyed...and are currently in the wash. And the candy and chocolates seem to have *ahem* disappeared -.-
I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday Season ♥
Please link me up to your haul lovelies!
