Tbh, I know for a fact that I’m not getting any books today from other people. (Unless Chantel surprises me, that is!) I know this is because I didn’t ask for any. Finances were tight this year so I asked my parents to buy me my textbooks from last semester — they’re good ones for general knowledge — and that’s all I’m getting from them.
However, I did buy myself some books with Amazon gift cards.
I read this a couple years ago now and I really enjoyed it. I want a copy of it for my Tudor shelf, so I decided to buy myself it! It’s a very good and compelling read. I found it to be an apt one.
- Finishing what books I didn’t have of the Dublin Murder Squad series by Tana French
I adore Tana French. And it infuriated me that I didn’t own all of her books, tbh. My dad, who decided he was going to do a “fun” gift for me, refused to get them because he wanted to get me a shirt. (Thanks, dad.) So, I found copies of them and decided to get them!
- A couple of Dan Jones books
Now, I do love Dan Jones. I think he’s a great history author. Now I own all of the books he’s published. I’m going to read The Templars early next year, so I’m excited!
- A few classics
Specifically, I got them as the word cloud covers because I think those look the coolest. I’ve read Frankenstein and Shakespeare’s sonnets, but not Madame Bovary, My Antonia, or Lady Chatterley’s Lover.
- Finishing out my Ania Ahlborn collection
Finally, I own all of Ania Ahlborn’s books! And that makes me so excited. She’s definitely one of my favorite horror authors. She improves with each and every book I read by her.
- And some books I read this year and loved
I really feel blessed this year by the amazing books I was able to read, so I went ahead and got some! All of these are books I would reread at the drop of a hat, so they deserve a space on my shelf.
Have you read any of these?
What books do you hope you get gifted?
