Yesterday was meant to be my 2020 wrap-up, but, the charging cord gods said no, and now here I am, without a post for Monday on the first of the new year, but, I’ll just try and ignore that. [You can’t tell but I’m twitching here at the thought of being off schedule lol]
So I’m going forward with today’s post and we’ll do a yearly wrap-up when I have a proper cord again lol.
Time for me to share what I got during the holidays!
**A lot of these were bought in sales right before/after Xmas and the New Year as well as just bought used, I could not afford all these things full price, but also…**
**You don’t need to spend money to be a book blogger, so don’t let this haul affect your opinion on that, you’re valid as long as you enjoy reading!**
I got the special Caraval edition because who doesn’t need more editions of books they like? -insert deadpan stare here- but also I used my bday money to get it so I don’t feel as guilty lol.
And now here are the pretties together, Owlcrate and it’s teal mojo on the left in the pic and purple gilded Fairyloot glory on the right!
I already showed this off but wanted to show it off again, it’s the Blissfully Bookish, Novel Threads, Spin the Dawn dress pin! LOOK HOW PRETTY
I also splurged on this pin on the Black Friday sale from Chiqui Creates! Another to add to my Caraval collection!
Grabbed this pin from the Angela Animates because it’s so cute and I already want to reread Serpent & Dove just looking at it
The Catching Fire pin from Dust and Pages, scored this during the Black Friday sale as well, and I’m always wanting more Hunger Games merch
What did I just say about Hunger Games merch? Lol I got this from Iron and Ink
My Niece got me this and it’s a very pretty edition, I did like how the intro didn’t shy away from calling out Lovecraft on his racism, phobias, and other prejudices, it was nice to see it addressed from the start.
This was a present from my Nephew and hands down it has been one of the best presents I’ve gotten, like, ever! Haha I’m so obsessed with them and not to mention the recipes are actually super cool! I already made the Swedish meatballs out of Rose’s section of the book!
Another absolutely gorgeous book! I couldn’t help but want this one lol and I was lucky enough that the hubs got it for me, though he’s probably rolling his eyes as I just keep wanting books XD still, I didn’t know these editions existed and now I need them all but really I don’t so I’ll probably have to be super content with this pretty Reaper edition of Children of Blood and Bone
A House of Salt and Sorrows pin I’ve been wanting! Angela Animates has so many pretty pins and it’s so hard to find HoSaS stuff ❤
I also received the Caraval dress and tag chain but I forgot to take a picture, so here’s the link to it below!
The last of my bookish presents, and I was really excited to get this pin inspired by Aurora Rising, I’d had my eye on it for about a year. Hubs got me this off of Pinned with Starlight’s Etsy page.
And there we have it! My Holiday Book-ish haul, you’ll be seeing a few of these photos used on my insta, but I really want to remind everyone that this haul is not about how much money someone can spend, get spent on them, this is also like books I may have preordered through out the year to go to the US and my family sends me them along whenever there are enough to fill up the box they’ll take to the post office.
Buying no books, getting none, that’s perfectly okay, we are not readers based on our wallets but by the fact we like books. ❤ That being said please feel free to tell me what gift you enjoyed getting in 2020, whether it was a sweet card, a homemade gift, or maybe just a treat yourself buy.
