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?
