Books I got for Christmas

Hi, hi! I meant to do this post right after Christmas but I’ve been sick all week and haven’t had the energy to do more than watch Lucifer under a blanket, but better late than never right?


Let’s start with these two I got from the lovely Lauren since they arrived first and everything. She gave me Undercover Princess by Connie Glynn and Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff. I know absolutely nothing about Illuminae but it looks really cool and my fiance was interested in it as well so it’ll hopefully be nice reading for both of us! Undercover Princess was something I was already curious about and it will very likely end up being the first book I read in 2018 because I’m really in the mood for fun light stuff!


I got these two from my fiance’s family. I had given them a list of five books I’d like so they could choose a couple of them and there would still be some element of surprise for me! I ended up getting That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E. K. Johnston and Kushiel’s Chosen by Jacqueline Carey. I already read a little bit of the Victorian ThingΒ  while visiting my family and it seems really interesting (and that cover is so pretty!!). Now that I have the second Kushiel book I also have good reason to finally continue the series next year!


Last but definitely not least, my fiance got me The Art of Persona 5! I love video game art books because it’s really cool to see concept art of the characters etc and see how they turned out as they did in the game. I’ve flipped through this book so many times already and I’ve been slowly reading the artist’s comments on everything. I need more books like these!

As a bonus here’s one concept art spread from the book:


I hope you guys got some nice Christmas reading too!

  1. I have two copies of Illuminae, yet I still haven’t read it, unfortunately. But I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about it, so I hope we both love it! And EK Johnston’s book cover is GORGEOUS! I’ve read one of her books already and thought it was okay–I’m hoping the one you have will be more enjoyable. Awesome haul! ❀

  2. Ooh yes, Illuminae!!! Yes yes YES. (Can’t wait for Obsidio.)

    Ooh, Kushiel’s Chosen.. I considered reading Kushiel’s Dart, but then decided it’s probably… Too… Ahem. For me. I couldn’t handle it, probably πŸ˜€ *is a soft and innocent ball of fur*

    Ooh Persona 5 looks great. I think boyfriend was considering getting that game. At least I remember it from the Games Awards.

    Nice haul!!!

    1. Honestly, Kushiel’s Dart was much tamer than I expected it to be based on the descriptions I’d heard of it :’) It has a very beautiful world. It’s definitely not for everyone though!

      Your boyfriend should definitely get Persona 5 because it’s really really good πŸ˜€
