I hope you all had a lovely Christmas – I’ve had an unplanned hiatus from the blog to enjoy the festivities but I’m back today and wishing everyone a happy new year! I got a few bookish goodies for Christmas, plus I’ve picked up a few in the Kindle Christmas deals too, so here’s my haul for the last few weeks. (Click the covers to go to Goodreads).

I also got two lovely coffee table books – one packed with cat cartoons and one beautiful illustrated collection of untranslatable words from around the world.

And two cook books! I’m looking forward to cooking some quirky recipes and some classic soups over the winter months.

I had a bit of an impulsive book haul on Amazon the other day, but overall I’m pretty pleased with it – there’s some popular new releases here and some classics I’ve been meaning to read for ages.

What have you added to your shelves this week? And what would you recommend from the above? Let me know! 🙂

  1. I can heartily recommend American Gods (and nearly anything by Gaiman, for that matter)

  2. GREAT Christmas stack! It’s awesome when people gift you books you really want. I didn’t get any books this year but I got some currency to buy some, so there is that. 😀 I loved Rebel of the Sands! Really anxious to read Traitor to the Throne. I hope you enjoy all of your new books, Emma!

    Happy New Year. =)

    Check out my STS post!

  3. I love On Writing. It’s my favorite writing book. I have IT sitting on my TBR shelf, and The Wonder is on my TBR list. I’m hoping to read them next year. I hope you enjoy all your new books!
