Christmas has been and gone and now we’re firmly into January of 2018! To begin with, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a great new year. I want to also mention that this post is not for bragging. I love watching book hauls and reading posts about them so I wanted to join in with what books I got for Christmas. Only a few of these were given on the day and the others were purchased with Christmas money. So I will separate this post into 2 sections.
The books I actually got for Christmas were ‘Star Wars Made Easy’ by DK, ‘Victoria & Albert: A Royal Love Affair’ by Daisy Goodwin & Sara Sheridan and ‘Victoria: A Life’ by A. N. Wilson. I have already read the book by Daisy Goodwin and Sara Sheridan and I gave it a full 5/5 stars.
The other books I got for Christmas were purchased with money I received and are ‘Leia, Princess of Alderaan’ by Claudia Gray, ‘Victoria: The Heart and Mind of a Young Queen’ by Helen Rappaport and ‘Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag’ by Oliver Bowden. The third being part of a series I am collecting, and the first 2 being ones I am desperate to read this year. Leia actually being on my list of 10 books to read this year!
As you can probably tell, I’m very fond of the Victoria series on ITV at the moment, and have been trying to learn more about Queen Victoria, as I realised I didn’t know much about her before and I’ve always been keen on learning about the monarchy throughout history, such as I’ve been learning more about the Tudors too. What books did you get for Christmas? I’d love to know!
