So, I have a couple posts to share of 2016 awesomeness. The first is my reveal from my Broke and Bookish Secret Santa! This is one of my favorite swaps- although it's not really a swap because you send a package to one person, while someone else sends a package to you, but anyways. Sarah had my name and she put together an amazing package. Check it out.
I came home from work one day to find this large box sitting on my porch and inside was all this brightly wrapped awesomeness, I couldn't wait to tear into it.
Inside was three books that had been on my wishlist, Christmas cards, pencils, Christmas tissues, a to do list, scrapbook paper, washi tape, ribbon, hot cocoa sticks, lip balm, and a lovely note from Sarah. I was totally spoiled!
The books she picked are all different genres which gives a nice variety.
- A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier is the account of a boy who was pulled into the Sierra Leone conflict by his own government at the age of twelve.
- The Girl with All the Gifts ended up on my list after reading several reviews about it on other blogs. I'm still not sure what the plot is, but I can't wait to find out.
- Somewhere in France takes place in England and France in 1914, and sounds like it has some Downton Abbey elements to it, which intrigues me.
