Christmas Haul!

Christmas Haul!

Hello WordPress! So Christmas is over and it’s officially the new year. I hope you all had wonderful holiday’

I had a really good holiday. I surprisingly got three books for Christmas. Normally I only get B&N gift cards but this year I got the book that I wanted and more. Two beautiful bookmarks, Leviathan, Why does my bird do that, and The invention of Hugo Cabret.

Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

“Prince Aleksander, would-be heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, is on the run. His own people have turned on him. His title is worthless. All he has is a battletorn war machine and a loyal crew of men.

Deryn Sharp is a commoner, disguised as a boy in the British Air Service. She’s a brilliant airman. But her secret is in constant danger of being discovered.

With World War I brewing, Alek and Deryn’s paths cross in the most unexpected way…taking them on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure that will change both their lives forever.”

The Invention Of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

“Orphan Hugo Cabret lives in a wall. His secret home is etched out in the crevices of a busy Paris train station. Part-time clock keeper, part-time thief, he leads a life of quiet routine until he gets involved with an eccentric, bookish young girl and an angry old man who runs a toy booth in the station. The Invention of Hugo Cabret unfolds its cryptic, magical story in a format that blends elements of picture book, novel, graphic novel, and film. Caldecott Honor-winning author-illustrator Brian Selznick has fashioned an intricate puzzle story that binds the reader like a mesmerist’s spell.”

What did you receive for the holidays?

Uglies Graphic Novel

What’s on my Christmas list?


I asked for Scott Westerfelds new Leviathan series, (Leviathan, Goliath, Behemoth) as well as his new graphic novel. (Uglies: Shay’s Story)

I have read but don’t own yet, the Hunger Games trilogy, as well as the Harry Potter box set. (Only read the 1st book, but have seen all the movies)

I have also heard good things about the Eragon series. (Which I got for my cousin for Christmas, so maybe I can borrow from her when she’s done) I know I’m dreaming. But I think I might get at least Leviathan. Because I expressed told my mom that I had to have it.

Hunger Games Trilogy Box Set

So…pretty much any of those mentioned above, are at the top of my list. But anything in my TBR pile would be lovely to receive. I’m sure either way that it will be a good Christmas and I am really excited about it this year

So, now that I’ve shared all that I am hoping to get for Christmas what are you all hoping for? What’s on your Christmas list? Comment below, and answer or Link me if you have a blog post of video.
