I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Here are the books I either bought or received over the Christmas period:
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë (Clothbound)
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë (Deluxe)
Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill
Vortex by Julie Cross
Eternally Yours by Cate Tiernan (not pictured)
Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie (not pictured)
You may remember some of these from my On My Wishlist: It’s Nearly Christmas post. You can read about why I want to read them here. I was very happy to receive them for Christmas! Tempest was a surprisingly enjoyable read for me in 2012 and so I’m really looking forward to Vortex and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn will be one of my classics for 2013. I bought Death on the Nile when I visited my first bookshop of the year. Check back to see the first A Tour of London Bookshops post!
I also got some ebooks for my Kindle:
The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson
Bright Young Things by Scarlett Thomas
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: The Trilogy of Five by Douglas Adams
The Reapers are the Angels by Alden Bell
The White Lie by Andrea Gillies
My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher
How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr
Fire Spell by Amy Laura Schlitz
I featured The Hundred-Year-Old Man and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series in my recent On My Wishlist: Adult Fiction post. I went a bit crazy in the 12 Days of Kindle promotion and bought a few ebooks. I’m probably most looking forward to reading Fire Spell (also known as Splendors and Glooms) and How to Save a Life, but the majority of them were already on my wishlist so I’m very happy that I now can read them.
I requested the above e-galleys before I decided to accept fewer review copies (let’s see how that goes). I’m looking forward to reading Warm Bodies in particular and watching the adaptation.
What books did you receive for Christmas?
