My Christmas Haul!


I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!! I had a very Merry Christmas -- full of good cheer, family, presents, and tons of books! :party I knew I'd have to make a special book haul post this year for the crazy amount of books I got! I tried to capture them all in pics, but they turned out kinda blurry so I included them individually too so you don't have to squint to see lol. ;) I already started reading Dark Witch (it's great so far!) and I already finished the Willow graphic novel (review posting soon).
My Secret Santa gave me Not A Drop To Drink, Etiquette & Espionage, Switch, Torn, and Awaken, and Dark Witch! Thank you so much :O She also gave me cute nail polish and a cute pen with candy.

I feel extremely blessed for all the gifts and love I received this year. I'm taking a mini break by just decreasing the frequently of posts a bit  until after the New Year. Not by much, but just enough for some more reading time.

What do you think of my haul? Any suggestions on what to read first? Lol xP

  4. You have a pretty awesome haul this week! These Broken Stars looks amazing, and so do all of those other books in that first photo. I've read The Pledge, Divergent, and Switched, and I enjoyed each one (the first two are favorites of mine). Enjoy your books and have a happy new year!

  5. I read the first chapter or so of Dark Witch online at some point and was totally into it. I don't normally read her books - they're not normally clean - but this one I'm thinking I may have to check out. That is a ton of books!!! My vote would be to read Blackmoore because I LOVED it! You've got some others that are really good though too. You've kind of got a win/win situation here with whatever you end up reading in whatever order after you're done with Dark Witch. :)

  6. Wow, somebody has been good considering this haul from Santa.

    I got "Eleanor & Park" and "Fangirls" as part of my present haul this year.

    As for recommended first read, I can only recommend "Divergent" as it's the only one that I've read from this haul.
