My friend sent me a fun package today, filled with all kinds of goodies! Among the loot were ARCs of Pandemonium and The Selection which she’s loaning me, as well as an adorable book of paper toys, some paper pretties, and library pockets. How did she know I’d been wanting those old-fashioned library pockets? I have no idea, but sometimes I think she is monitoring my online activities from hundreds of miles away.
The lovely Nomes over at Inkcrush also sent along a beautiful Aussie book I’ve been lusting after, Sue Saliba’s Alaska, which is of course impossible to get here. I’ve been looking forward to this one for a long time, and to actually have my own copy is such an amazing treat! I also got tons of Australian candy to try out, which is super fun. My dentist is going to be really happy about that.
Speaking of book presents, did you give any this year? I gave my 14-year-old niece and nephew copies of Unearthly and Anna Dressed in Blood, and I gave my best friend (who is a 31-year-old male, btw) A Monster Calls and Liesl & Po. I hope they’ll enjoy them as much as I did!
