Hello, dearest nerds, writers, photographers, fangirls, book readers and blog readers.
Today (or tonight; it depends on what time you’re reading this), I’m going to show you my Christmas presents! (If you like American Girls dolls, you can check out my doll-related haul on my other blog, Happy House of AG.)
*I’m not trying to brag by showing you my presents. I simply thought you might like to see what I was given.*
I got my very first POP! It’s of the Tenth Doctor. :D
Isn’t he adorable?
Keeper of the Lost Cities: Everblaze by Shannon Messenger. I’m super excited to read this!
Keeper of the Lost Cities: Neverseen by Shannon Messenger. I now have the whole series!
The Bad Books: Bad Magic. The first (and, at the moment, only) book in The Bad Books series by Pseudonymous Bosch. I’ve already finished reading it. XD
Here are a few random sentences from each book . . .
“Just tell me the stupid secret, okay?” — page 461.
The quintessence had carried them to an island — a tiny spit of sand and palms where Sophie would’ve expected to find a marooned pirate searching for the X that marked the spot. — page 417.
He’d been abandoned with a cryptic warning next to an alarming SOS sign. — page 134.
Maybe he would learn more about the original Mira, or more about the library the pilot had warned him about weeks ago. — page 218.
Sophie swayed and Keefe grabbed her, holding her steady as he whispered, “Please tell me what they’re saying.” — page . . . um, I forget the page number.
She rallied her full mental strength, slipped into Mitya’s mind and . . .
. . . tangled in a web of memories. — page 161.
I got this hat.
This Star Wars beanie was a gift from my grandmother (Well, technically, the hat belongs to my brother, but he lets me wear it. I got a beanie as well, but I didn’t really like it because it had Hello Kitty on it. :P ).
It says “Star Wars, the Force Awakens” on it!
My parents got me a guitar book, since I’m going to learn guitar soon. My dad plays guitar, so hopefully he’ll help me. :)
Mmm . . . a peanut butter chocolate bar. There’s actually peanut butter inside the squares of chocolate.
My grandmother gave me a stocking filled with all of that stuff. ^^
My mom put this in my stocking. XD
I got these awesome Doctor Who earrings. They have the Seal of Rassilon on them!
Finally, I was given a Doctor Who shirt that says “Keep Calm and Don’t Blink.”
I’m in love with it.
I got $50 from grandparents #1; $30 from grandparents #2; $50 from grandparents #3; $20 from aunt and uncle #1; $20 from my great aunt and uncle; and $50 from aunt and uncle #2.
Uncle #3 gave me a $50 Books-a-Million gift card.
I bought my brother The Avengers on DVD. It was sort of a gift to myself as well as to him, since I hadn’t seen The Avengers before.
