Persephone Secret Santa



It's the Persephone Secret Santa reveal day today so it's time to reveal my gift and who my Secret Santa is. I almost didn't participate this year, what with being seven months pregnant and just feeling a bit under the weather I thought I'd just wait till next year. I know I've been a bad book blogger of late as my last post was last month! Blame it on my pregnancy and the busy Christmas season. I finally have a very good excuse to post today and actually I'm so glad I joined the Persephone Secret Santa event as I got the most wonderful present plus I discovered a fabulous book blog too. My gift was The Winds of Heaven by Monica Dickens, one of the brand new Persephones released recently and my Santa is Colleen of Col Reads . When I read the card I didn't know who Col was as I've never been to her blog but it's truly a lovely one and I'm happy to now have it on my blog list. Col - thanks so much! You made a perfect choice as I loved Mariana by Monica Dickens and I've been wanting to read more from her.

My giftee hasn't received her book yet so I do hope she gets it soon. 

A big thank you to Claire at Paperback Reader for hosting this wonderful event. I'm eager to see what everyone else has received so I'm off to check out her blog right now. Cheers!

  6. I'm so pleased you participated this year and what a wonderful choice by Colleen.

    Cate has not yet received her gift but knows that it is on its way; perhaps you could edit your post to keep the surprise?

    Warmest wishes for the season, Astrid.

  8. Lovely! And glad to hear all of the Monica Dickens love as I received a copy of Mariana from my Secret Santa. And hope you feel yourself again soon! But as for now, when I was as pregnant as you are now, the only thing that did the trick was sleep. As much sleep as possible. Merry Christmas!
