Haha, yes, I know that I’m terribly late with my Christmas haul, but I finally got all my presents.


Hosted by: Books, Biscuits and Tea.

Parents: Markus Heitz – Oneiros: dodelijke vloek (not available in English), Philippa Gregory – De witte roos (The lady of the Rivers). Peter Pan and Brave! Brave came with the Pixar short movie collection 2 (which I forgot to add to the photo) I also got some other things, like perfume (Guess - I'm yours) and a beauty and the beast pajama <3
Sister: Veronica Roth – Insurgent and some Disney things.

I won J. A. Souders – Renegade in the November giveaway from Stories & Sweets.
Boyfriend: Robin Wasserman – The book of blood & shadow, Emily McKay – The farm and Robin LaFevers – Grave Mercy.
From my two grandma’s and grandpa’s: money to buy more books. I’m already making a list.







SplinteredEve (Eve, #1)
This is so awesome. At the beginning of this week, I won a signed copy from Anna Carey – Eve at EM Castellan. It arrived today.

Two days ago I got a mail that I won a signed copy from A.G Howard – Splintered. This was one of my most anticipated books from 2013! I can’t wait to get this pretty copy in my hands. Thanks to Nobonita.








I got two new books from Netgalley.
Black Swan Rising (Black Swan Rising #1)The Magic Mirror and the Seventh Dwarf (Accidental Enchantments, #2)
I’m currently reading Lee Caroll – Black swan rising and I like it so far. This book is already available, because it was published November 1st 2010 by Bantam.

Tia Nevitt’s – The magic mirror and the seventh dwarf is the second book in Accidental enchantments. I haven’t read the first one, but based on the blurb, I think I can read this as a stand-alone. It will be published February 18th 2013 by Carina Press.





I’m very happy with everything I got and I can’t wait to order some books from the Christmas money. Show me your haul by leaving a link! :)Pooh

    1. My parents know that I love books the most, so I always make a list with titles I want and they pick some of them. I did the same with my boyfriend. He picked two of my favorites from the list :D

      I've already read Insurgent a while ago! It was good.

  15. Wow you have some amazing books here. Also BRAVE! I want this on DVD so much but the full price right now is just a little too much. Despite my age (21!) I still love Disney films and slowly building up a collection :) I really like the sound of Splintered so will hopefully get a copy of that sometime in the future :) I also need to read Divergent so I hope you enjoy Insurgent!

    1. Brave was awesome! I love the way her hair moves. They did a brilliant job with that and it's just *dreamy sigh* Disney can't do anything wrong in my eyes. I've read Eve a while ago (before the blog), but I'm going to re-read it so I can review it :)

  38. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on all these, Mel! For me, INSURGENT was okay; I preferred DIVERGENT a whole lot more. :/ But I'm super excited to see that you got THE BOOK OF BLOOD & SHADOW, GRAVE MERCY, and THE FARM. All those sound sooooo good.

    Enjoy!

  39. Hahaha, when I saw the title of your post on my blog, I was like... Christmas?! I thought I was hallucinating or something. :D But don't worry, I was super late with my Christmas haul too so..

  40. Oh wow, you got a ton of awesomeness! I would love The Farm & Splintered (isn't that cover lush?)! I adored Insurgent - I hope you love it too!

    Brave *sigh* my daughter loves this (I do too)! We actually went to see it in the cinema and she cried like a big baby. But she has gotten over the crying now and watches it at least once a day! Nothing like watching a film to death! :)
