I’m back (almost!) and my Secret Santa

The BookDepository

I hope that you have had a wonderful Christmas. I have had a lovely few days and plan to take things easy for the next week as my husband is having some more time off work. I hope to start posting again soon but I have some things planned for the next week, so my blogging might be slightly erratic. I’m very behind on my blog reading, so apologise for my lack of comments recently. Hopefully everything will get back to normal after the New Year celebrations.

Book Blogger Holiday SwapI’d like to thank Jennifer from Mrs Q :Book Addict for a wonderful Secret Santa present. It arrived on Christmas Eve, in the cutest envelope I have ever seen. Aren’t those penguins gorgeous?!

She sent The Last Queen by C.W. Gortner, which I’ve had on my wish list for a while – I’m really looking forward to finding out more about the Spanish Royal family. She also sent two great bookmarks and a stretchy book cover. What else could a book lover want?! Thank you so much Jennifer!

I’ll be back with a review or two soon, and a list of my favourite reads from the past year.

I hope that you are all enjoying the last few days of 2009!

    The holidays are wonderful, but at some point, you are ready to get back to the routine! Myself, I could not eat for three weeks and be just fine. Have a nice, relaxing remainder of your vacation, and we will look forward to seeing you back!
