The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
This was a holiday gift from my BFF, and was even on my holiday wish list. Funny enough, she had picked up a copy for herself a few weeks ago but hadn't yet read it, so now we can read it together. I've heard great things about this, so hopefully it's one that lives up to the hype.
So I may have gone into Barnes & Nobles intended to purchase gifts for others, and came out with these instead. At least these were in addition to the gifts, and at their bargain price I couldn't really say no.
William & Catherine Their Story by Andrew Morton
The fact that I took off work to watch the royal wedding, gives you an idea just how obsessed I am with British royalty. When all the books came out last year, I wanted to buy everyone of them, but couldn't quite justify the cost. I did buy one, and while I wasn't a huge fan of it, hopefully this one will be better. Plus at 85% of it was well worth it to me.
The Lady of the Rivers by Philippa Gregory
Another one off my holiday wish list. I was a little concerned I would also receive this as a holiday present, but thankfully that didn't happen. Now I can finally read this one, and most likely pick up Gregory's newest soon.
What did you find in your mailbox this week? And how likely are you to go into a store intending to buy a gift, and wind up buying for yourself instead?
