Secret Santas!


We all signed up for the Secret Santa with Kate over at the Neverending Shelf. While Gregory hasn't received his yet, Jake and I just picked up our wonderful gifts!

Alyssa's S
ecret Santa:

I received Lament by Maggie Stiefvater!

You may remember my review. I'm usually not a huge faery fan which is why I was surprised how much enjoyed Lament.

Because I was
skeptical I picked it up from the library. Great way to save money but always sad when I have to give a beloved book back.

But sad no more because the fabulous Misty over at Book Rat generously provided me a copy. And I feel so international because it came all the way from England!

Misty is participating in the 12 Blogs of Christmas. Go check out her giveaway for a chance to win some of my favorite books! Thanks Misty!

UPDATE:: Misty just told me I have TWO more books coming! She's so generous! Can't wait! I will not peek, I will not peek, I will not peek...

Now for Jake's...







Jake's Secret Santa:



I am a huge...HUGE... Jim Butcher fan. I've read and re-read his Dresden Files books and am anxiously awaiting the next in the series. I don't have all the books in the series and I didn't have one of my favorites - Proven Guilty - until now!

The lo
vely and generous Steph from Steph the Bookworm was kind enough to send it to me since she is my Secret Santa!

But that's not all! I've been wanting to read Butcher's YA fantasy novels but haven't gotten to them yet. So Steph helped me out there too by sending my Furies of Calderon, the first book in the series!

A great big Thank You to Steph for her thoughtfulness. I'm really going to enjoy
these! And by the way, she is also having a Six Book Giveaway that you'll want to check out!

Alyssa, you have 2 more books on the way. Book Depository split them up, but rest assured, they are 2 that you requested on your list. If you want to spoil the surprise, I revealed them here...

Steph - thanks again and Merry Christmas. I'm loving all the Jim Butcher!

Jake Kirk@Teens Read and Write said...

Brizmus - Thanks and the same to you!

Alyssa Kirk @ Teens Read and Write said...

Misty - Oh I'm so excited! Lament was enough to get me to squeal with delight. I am not going to look as I want to be surprised. Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Loved the Secret Santa, such great fun & super exciting getting books in the mailbox rather than bills LOL. Enjoy yours and hope Greg get his soon!

Alyssa Kirk @ Teens Read and Write said...

Teddyree - Thanks for the good wishes. And for Gregory too. If he doesn't get it we'll have to be extra nice to him so he feels loved....UHG!

Just kidding. Jake and I do love the brat but don't tell him!

*high fives* ya all did fantastic :)

Cherry said...

Umm... Jake, the Harry Dresden series is an adult book... are you sure you should be reading it?...

Jake Kirk@Teens Read and Write said...

Juju- yes we did!

Cherry, dearest, *clears throat and speaks in deep voice and snotty British accent* my frighteningly high maturity level allows me to read a plethora of reading material.

*In regular yet still manly voice* ...And I checked with my mom first. She said it was okay.
