Secret Santa 2011 #2
My second secret santa present arrived!! This one is part of the Book Blogger Holiday Swap. The lovely lady who sent it to me said in her card that she’d just started following me on twitter when she was assigned to me, but girl! I couldn’t make out your twitter handle! So please do let me know who you are! She individually wrapped everything in gorgeous paper that I, yet again, do not have a picture of because I ripped the package open as soon as I got it, haha. It contained:
A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly–I remember adding this to my wishlist around the time when I read The Birth House. Basically, a historic 1906 setting with a young, independent woman and a murder mystery. This is going to be an ideal winter read!
The Woman Warrior: Memoirs of a Girlhood Among Ghosts by Maxine Hong Kingston–I find it utterly fascinating that both of my completely unconnected santas got me the same book from off my wishlist! I take that as a huge sign from the universe to get at this asap and also maybe to host a giveaway of it!
The Story of Beautiful Girl by Rachel Simon–Wow! This is not only from 2011, but also is a complete audiobook and certainly looks brand new. Thank you so much! The book covers inter-racial relationships and the world of mental hospitals and mental illness, so basically it’s a cross-section of two topics I read a lot about. I’m very excited to have this to read while working around my apartment, knitting, or running at the gym.
A beautiful card! Currently hanging on my fridge.
Thanks for making my swap a wonderful experience, and please do out yourself thoughtful twitter follower!
