New Books: Bookish Christmas Presents

Christmas Prezzie #1

Hello my fellow bookworms, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas day and received some lovely presents. Sadly I don’t always receive books or related gifts for Christmas, even though I am an avid reader – I think perhaps many people are worried they would buy me a book I wouldn’t enjoy. Happily this year I received a few bookish gifts to share with you.

First up I received a set of The Hunger Games books by Suzanne Collins from my father. I originally read these books a few years ago now and then I was lent a friend’s copy of them. Now the epic film franchise has come to end with the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 (2015) I thought it was high time for a re-read, and a good excuse to get my own set. I am really pleased my father was able to get me a set with the striking black covers.

Next up we have a full, miniature set of The Chronicles of Narnia by C S Lewis which were given to me by my mother and step-father; I get my love of Narnia from my mother! This set was made by a miniature company that specialise only in making perfect miniature books. I love that each book has its originally cover on and yes, you can actually read them! A previous year I got a miniature copy of The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Graham.

Then linked to my previous gift I got this beautiful miniature lion, which I have already named Aslan! These miniature figurines are made from just pipe-cleaners – the woman who makes these is amazing. My mother and me love these and have figurines of dogs, bears, meerkats, an elephant and I received a fully dressed, mole with my miniature copy of The Wind in the Willows.

Did you receive any books or bookish gifts this Christmas?

    1. Thank you – I am very blessed to have the parents I do. I am a little jealous you got to discover The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe for the first time this Christmas; it must have been magical 🙂

      1. I really loved The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe and it was perfect for Christmas. I’m dying to know what’s going to happen next. Before I read the book, I was confusing the story with The Golden Compass which I haven’t read, but have vague idea of plot.

  1. Jessica – such lovely presents. I actually received a few book tokens this year and I was so pleased. I love receiving presents of course but tokens for books just about make my day. I’ve already bought a few but I’m trying to be cautious and save some money for books that I’m waiting to be released.
    Hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas.
    Lynn 😀

    1. Thank you Lynn – I did have a wonderful Christmas and I hope yours was too 🙂 Ooo book tokens are a great gift. Saving them up for some new releases you’re looking forward to sounds like a good plan, but I know that is easier said than done!

    1. I am sorry to hear you didn’t receive any bookish gifts this year, but I find it a joy to give out books too and the Polar Express gift set sounds amazing! I hope you got some lovely present too, even if they weren’t book related 🙂

    1. Happy Christmas to you too 🙂 I am so blessed to have parents who are so good at picking out lovely and thoughtful gifts. I hope you got some lovely present too, even if they weren’t book related.

      1. Thank you, I did! And some book related too! I received a lovely Agatha Christie collection and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy audiobooks. My sister and I ended up buying each other the same book – A Guinea Pig Pride and Prejudice!
