As Christmas has just past, I, of course being a book lover, got quite a few books in my stocking. So here they are (all links lead to Goodreads):
- The World of Downton Abbey - Downton Abbey is my ALL TIME FAVOURITE SHOW on TV at the moment, closely followed by Doctor Who. If you haven't watched it, I would certainly recommend it. It's like a cross between Upstairs, Downstairs and Hollyoaks - soap-ish but not too soap-ish - and in period costume.
- Elegance by Kathleen Tessaro - this is from my friend Tijana who describes me as elegant. I appreciate it, but when I look at my clumsiness, I cringe, so yeah, maybe a little. ANYWAY, when she read this book, she was reminded of me so wanted to get it for my birthday - but couldn't find it. And now I have it! It looks great and you never know, it may stop my clumsiness.
These are from my parents and grandmother.
- Anne Frank Remembered by Miep Gies - the thing that interested me about this book was that it was written by Miep Gies who has more of an insight into Anne Frank than most people. This seemed an interesting novel to read and I'm quite looking forward to this one.- Velvet by Mary Hooper - I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR CHRISTMAS FOR THIS ONE. Finally.
- An Abundance of Katherines by John Green - To add to my John Green collection, this looks really good and my mum was even like 'Oh I might read this one, this looks funny'
After my parents couldn't find the Hunger Games trilogy box set I had put on my Christmas list, I bought them myself with my own money and a discount so happy days. I love these new covers, they're so simple and unique.
What about you guys? What books did you get for Christmas?
