Stacking the Shelves

Posted 26 December, 2015 by Nikki in General / 26 Comments

It’s Boxing Day already? Where’d the time go?! Anyway, I hope everyone had a good day yesterday, whether they celebrate Christmas or not. I always think of Christmas as a time when I get stacks and stacks and stacks of books… but luckily for my TBR, it didn’t really go that far. Dad and my aunt got me a load of Phryne Fisher books (yay!), and between my parents, my sister and my friends, I got plenty, haha.

Anyway, I also popped by the library this week, where I picked up a couple of books…

Cover of Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen Cover of Unnatural Creatures ed. Neil Gaiman Cover of The Stress of Her Regard by Tim Powers

I’ve been meaning to read all three of these for a while, so hopefully I’ll get round to them soon.

And here’s my Christmas haul!

Cover of Murder in Montparnasse by Kerry Greenwood Cover of The Castlemaine Murders by Kerry Greenwood Cover of Queen of the Flowers by Kerry Greenwood

Cover of Death by Water by Kerry Greenwood Cover of Murder in the Dark by Kerry Greenwood Cover of Murder on a Midsummer Night by Kerry Greenwood

 Cover of Dead Man's Chest by Kerry Greenwood Cover of Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo Cover of Darkwalker by E.L. Tettensor

Cover of Silver on the Road by Laura Anne Gilman Cover of Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman Cover of Black Wolves by Kate Elliott

Cover of Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen Cover of Firefight by Brandon Sanderson Cover of An Atlas of Tolkien by David Day

My sister also bought me some hard copies of Tanya Huff books that I’ve been failing to get around to on my Kindle. And since I like to show off my geekiness, here are some of my other gifts…

As you see, my Captain America bear got a dressing gown, and slippers too. And I got hedgehog slippers, and Star Trek TNG uniform pajamas. And a shield backpack, because I <3 Steve Rogers.

And most importantly, a surprise from my dad — proper library steps which convert into a chair. You may remember my surprise giraffe, from last year…

So all in all, pretty awesome haul! What’s everyone else been getting? Anything special?

  1. Your gifts are adorable! And I have to say that your book haul looked like an art collection, love the covers! I’ve never read any books by Kerry Greenwood but the cover definitely piqued my interest. Merry Christmas and have a happy reading week, those books looked like a great companion for the night!

    Thank you for commenting on my blog, I just followed you on BL 😉

    • Thanks! And yeah, the covers for Kerry Greenwood’s books are always amazing. I like the TV series too, but I won’t get the tie-in covers — I love the original art too much! Happy Christmas to you too, and thanks for following!

    • I’ve found that Teddy Mountain and Build Your Bear’s Wardrobe clothes (on Amazon/Ebay) fit Build-A-Bear bears perfectly, so it’s a whole new source of clothing for him, haha! I think my favourite is the bunny slippers… but he always looks so cute.

    • They’re really comfy PJs, too. Not sure how people are going to react when I answer the door wearing them… Thanks for dropping by!

    • Phryne is amazing. And yeah — my dad just finished putting some more shelves into my room, and now I need the steps to reach some of my books!
