I got The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and A Thousand Splendid Suns, my aunt also passed along some of her books to me and I ended up with about six from her to add to my TBR pile.


Happy reading everyone!

Aly got several. Monsterology. Vampyre (a book like the Ology books with all the tabs & letters & stuff). Beverly Hills Chihuahua, the movie novel. A book about animals who "saved" Christmas. I think she got another book (from us) that I can't remember right now.

She also got $40 in Barnes & Noble gift cards. We bought her a $20 Twilight one, and my SIL & her fiance' got her the other one. Actually, the fiance' did, the SIL had already put in with other SIL to get her Bella's bracelet (from Eclipse) as a combo birthday/Christmas gift (it was $75). SIL's fiance' saw Aly reading a "big book" one day..lol..and was so impressed that he ordered it on his own (I totally know this because he spelled her name wrong on the pre-printed gift tag...lol).

I personally didn't receive any books but I did get a $25 gift card from Borders. I will have to let you know what I buy.

I asked her a couple times, and she said she wasn't interested. Another book she read was a lot like it (and she liked that book) and she still didn't want to read it.

Oh, well.

My sister got me the first two books in the Twilight series, which I've been wanting to read.
