TBTB Santa Unboxing!

So this holiday season I participated in the 7th Annual Broke & Bookish Secret Santa for the third time! I love this holiday exchange and it’s so much fun shopping for gifts and meeting some cool bookish people through the project!

Here is a glimpse of the wrapped package I sent to my #TBTBSanta who is Stacey at The Bookish Loner! I’m so glad she liked everything!

Ready to go to the post office!

I just received my package today, so I was super excited! And this was basically my reaction to the package coming in the mail:


My #TBTBSanta was Manda from Crescent Bolt! She is a super amazing Secret Santa who spoiled me so much!

The initial opening!

She wrote me a nice letter and in addition to the books in the package she also gave me some local foods from her hometown. I love getting local/hometown products!


She also has some awesome wrapping skills as well! I loved the pretty wrapping paper and glittery ribbons. 🙂

The whole package!

Manda! Thank you so much for everything! Words cannot express how grateful I am for all of the books and lovely gifts! 😀

The books I received were:

The Girl From The Well by Rin Chupeco

A Tyranny of Petticoats (edited) by Jessica Spotswood

Shadowshaper by Daniel Jose Older

Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur Vol.1 by Amy Reeder, Brandon Montclare, Natacha Bustos

I cannot wait to read these books since they have been on my TBR for quite a while. I absolutely loved the handmade Totoro (which is adorable) and the Howl’s Moving Castle pin (attached to Totoro). The chocolate, wafers, and gumbo look delicious! I am especially excited to try the gumbo since it’s one of my favorite foods. The bath bomb smells wonderful too. 😀

Thank you again Manda!
