My Favorite gave me a gift card to Barnes and Noble and I had such a fun time spending it. After looking at my Goodreads TBR list, I narrowed it down to 15. Then I went in and browsed around. Added and subtracted and had it down to 5. Ended up with...
Anyone who has read my blog for long knows that I feel all.the.love for Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone. I think it's all kinds of neat that my favorite book of the year is on my shelves now because of My Favorite. I pre-ordered a hardcover of the second in the series, Siege and Storm. It will bug me a bit that they don't match but not enough not to buy a copy. I want to do an immediate re-read. If you haven't read these yet, do yourself a favor and fix that immediately.
Next is The Farm by Emily McKay. This one as been on my want list for a long time and the library doesn't own a copy so I really had no choice. It wanted to go home with me. I've read some great reviews from bloggers that I trust so yeah...bring on the creepy Ticks.
And finally, A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. I literally squealed when I saw the copy of this and knew for sure that I'd buy it. Read it in one sitting and loved it. Review to come on this once I've processed all.the.feels. The illustrations are as great as everyone keeps saying they are.
So Merry Christmas to me from My Favorite. He made this book nerd extremely happy.
