Friday Buys 12/16-30/11

Friday Buys are always - always always always - fun around Christmas.  After Christmas especially.  I haven't been able to buy books recently, so it's always nice to be surprised with a few when you've run out of book-buying money.  ;)

What I got -

Witchlanders by Lena Coakley
I absolutely LOVE this cover and when I read the first few pages I was entranced.  It looks incredibly beautiful (inside and out!) and I'm just plain stoked to readreadread!! :D


The Blackhope Enigma by Teresa Flavin
I've been watching this one for a while and am soooo excited to read it! :D


The Encyclopedia of the Exquisite
I wanted this book the moment I saw it in Anthropologie (I want most things inside Anthropologie).  When I read about it more I was soooo intrigued, and honestly, completely and utterly smitten by this cover.  Gorgeous, much?



My sister wrapped one of the books in this:


And then, in The Blackhope Enigma, I found THIS:
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Happiest day of my LIFE!  Haha!  ;)
Joking aside, I thought this was the stinking cutest and most original gift for a freshly read and newly bred Harry Potter fanatic.  (Haha!!  See, I'm so inspired by him that I even start to rhyme!)  One picture for all seven years.  I love this bookmark soooo much and am hoping to get it laminated.  Yes, I love my sister.  Very, very much. :D


I also got 3 B&N cards - all of which went toward the little surprise something I will write a post about as soooon as I get it...  This one was just sooo cute.  I had to take a picture and share.  I love Where the Wild Things Are.  'Nuff said.


On top of all that, my dear mother bought me this GORGEOUS vintage geography book.  My heart melts a little bit every time I see it. :D



All of the books together -

Yes, life is good.


From NetGalley:
(I know, I know, I have a LOT of reading to do!!!  14 books waiting for me!!  And all of them look awesome!! The bottom 3, especially, are priority - I can't wait to see what adventures they hold!  :D)







So, what did you get for Christmas?  Or your birthday?  Or with a giftcard?  Or just because?  Or all of the above?!  Haha!!  Leave me links and your thoughts in the comments and I'll check out your stuff! :D
Happy reading! :D
