In My {Christmas} Mailbox

I hope you all had a MERRY CHRISTMAS! I know I did! :D I love this time of year because three events happen in the space of only a few days: Christmas, my birthday and the new year! Sorry I haven't been posting as much as I wanted to during the holidays, but hopefully I will be able to post a few more before I go back to school.
So, for Christmas, I got two books and a lot of stationary and notebooks. That satisfies me fine!

IMM is hosted by The Story Siren. It is a meme a lot of book bloggers take part in to show what books they have received that week.

^ All the book related things I got for Christmas ^

The Declaration by Gemma Malley
I have been dying to read this one for ages. I have read so many good reviews and my friends have been recommending the series to me as well - thank you Santa! =)

Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
I love history and from what I read of the blurb it sounds amazing! It is told from two teenage girls perspectives - Andi whose brother has just died and is failing school and Alexandrine who is a street performer of Revolutionary France; somehow, though centuries apart, they are connected somehow.

Book Journal
I don't know if you can see in the picture, but one of the notebooks says 'Book Journal' on it. It is a great book to keep track of my reviews, books to read, and books I have borrowed. I love it - it is perfect for me! :]

Once again, I hope you all had a great Christmas and have a happy new year! To end the post, a few Christmassy pics....

  8. Oh 'The Declaration' is an amazing book. The other two in the series are, I think, slightly better than the first.
    Hope you enjoy!
