5 Books I Got For Christmas

Hello again dear readers, and Happy Holidays to everyone celebrating out there. I hope you had fun times with your family, or by yourself. I know my holidays were filled with food, not a lot of sleep, and a lot of laughs.

As a self-proclaimed bibliophile, you can bet I ask for books for the holidays. I didn’t actually receive too many, which is good, but I did receive a couple and some gift cards to buy some…so I thought I would share them with you today.


The Alloy of Law

A Mistborn Novel, and the first book in the second Mistborn series. I am excited to jump further into the world and read more Brandon Sanderson…he is my favourite author at the moment.

The Wizard’s First Rule

I have heard of Terry Goodkind before, but I have never had the chance to read him yet. What better way to get to know an author than by reading the first book in a large series of his?

10 Games to Play in Your Head by Yourself

I AM SO EXCITED TO BE LOST IN MY HEAD PLAYING A BUNCH OF GAMES ON MY OWN. I love finding ways to pass the time, and I hear this book is great at doing this.

The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek

Honestly, I am not sure what to expect from this book, so I am setting my expectations low so I am not disappointed. It’s apparently based off of true stories, so I hope its worth the read.

Fahrenheit 451

A classic if there ever was one. My girlfriend picked this out for me because it was the 60th anniversary edition. I got a poster with 100 books every reader should read in their lifetime and Fahrenheit 451 is in this list

Top 5 Tuesday: DEAR SANTA – I WOULD LIKE THESE 5 BOOKS!

This week’s Top 5 Tuesday comes from the one and only, Bionic Book Worm. This is the last Top 5 Tuesday of the year, and the topic is 5 books that I want to find under the tree.


Mistborn – Wax and Wayne Series

I bought myself the original Misborn Trilogy some time ago, and fell in love after the first book. I’m in the process of finishing the original trilogy, and would love to see a book or two from the second series under my tree.


The Rhythm of War

Though not technically released yet, I have heard that the fourth book in the Stormlight Archive’s series can be pre-ordered for its’ 2020 release. It is probably my favourite series right now, so if Santa didn’t get this for me, you can bet I’ll get it for myself.


10 Games to Play in Your Head by Yourself

I heard about this book through a YouTube channel that I watch, and it sounded like a really interesting concept. It’s supposed to help you pass the time, so I thought it would be perfect for me.

The Lost Causes of Bleak Creek

Good Mythical Morning is one of my favourite YouTube channels to watch, and the two hosts Rhett and Link wrote a book together, so of course I want to get my hands on it to read it!


Surprise Me!

I have actually received a few books that were given to me that I didn’t ask for, and I have enjoyed them quite a bit. Just because its not on my list, doesn’t mean I won’t like it. Some times a random book will be a terrific find.


What are some of the books you want to find under your tree this Christmas? Let me know in the comments.
