5th Annual Broke & Bookish Secret Santa



This was my first year that I signed up and participated in Broke & Bookish Secret Santa! I had a total blast participating and I mean who doesn’t love giving and receiving presents! It was so much fun stalking the twitter feed following #TBTBSanta and seeing all the updates and sneak peeks of people presents. It is such a great thing for the book community and its crazy how many people participate. If you have never heard of this before I highly recommend you check out some of the blogs/twitter feed and make sure to keep your eyes open around this time next year!

I feel bad because I feel like I didn’t go all out for my person like others did. I was really worried that I would end up getting her something she didn’t want/need/like etc. Also I was not really sure what was really expected besides the books. I have to say when I got the list for my person and while looking up the books they had on their wish list I ended up getting quite a few book recs! I had Rachel aka Fry from Romancing the Laser Pistol ! She is really into fantasy and science fiction so it was cool to see what books she was interested in as well as other hobbies and interest!

While watching the twitter feed and seeing everyone else getting their packages I was getting really impatient (I cant help it, its my nature). When my dad yelled at me that I had a package I couldn’t contain my excitement!

The person who was my #TBTBSanta was Jessie H from Jessie Reads Everything ! She is absolutely incredible and it is like she personally knows me! Reese’s are my favorite kind of chocolate and I love fun socks (I am sort of a collector!), but I did not include any of that on my list I filled out! Also she got me some hot chocolate and one of them is Red Velvet! Which is my favorite kind of cake!!!! I swear she was spying on me somehow! In her card she said she purchased me one book from my list and one that was not for my list. I had Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell on my list and have been wanting to read this forever! I am so excited I now own it and have no excuse not to read it very soon. Then she gave me The Looking Glass Wars  by Frank Beddor which I am so ecstatic about. If you know anything about me I love everything Alice in Wonderland and have yet to read any retellings because I have been scared, but I almost purchased this a few weeks ago because I have decided to jump in and read all retellings (Splintered by A.G Howard is the next book I plan to read!) She also purchased me bookmarks from Craftedvan which I absolutely adore and think they have the cutest bookmarks ever! If you can’t tell I am so happy and completely love my gifts and this Secret Santa set up by Broke & Bookish! It is a worthwhile thing to participate in !

I would love to hear if you participated in this and what kind of goodies you received!
