What books I got for Christmas!

I hope you guys all had a fantastic Christmas and got some of the books on your wishlist! I certainly did so I thought I'd share them with you:

The Merchant's Daughter by Melanie Dickerson

I really enjoyed this author's debut novel The Healer's Apprentice (a retelling of Sleeping Beauty) so I can't wait to get started on her second book. Although the cover's not quite so pretty as The Healer's Apprentice, it's still very enticing. I'm intrigued to find out who the man in the mirror is!

Before The Season Ends by Linore Rose Burkard

As you might know, I love a good regency novel  and I stumbled across this inspirational Christian regency. For one thing the cover's lovely but it sounds a bit like my favourite regency romance Arabella by Georgette Heyer too.

A Weekend with Mr Darcy by Victoria Connelly

My friend bought this for me knowing I'm a big Pride and Prejudice fan- isn't the illustrated cover gorgeous?

The World of Downton Abbey by Jessica Fellowes

I'm a bit obsessed with the TV show Donwton Abbey, which is set in Edwardian times and  follows the lives of the Grantham family and their servants so I loved curling up on Christmas day with this! In fact, I had a very Donwton Christmas getting the second series box set too and watching the Christmas special in the evening. Does anyone else watch Downton? I know the second series is about to be broadcast in the US so if you're following it, then you're in for a treat.

What books did you get for Christmas?


  1. Ah I love Downton Abbey, my favourite show, I got this book from my friend who equally loves the show.
    The Merchant's Daughter looks interesing, reminds me a bit of The Rogue's Princess by Eve Edwards/
    Thank you for your Christmas message, I had a nice day just eating, watching TV and opening presents. How was yours? :)

  2. I have A Weekend With Mr Darcy too, I'm saving it for a rainy Sunday afternoon.

    Hope you had a good Christmas.

  3. Great books there! I haven't read any of them but I really like historical fiction so they look great. Enjoy! :)

  4. Downton Abbey!! I have really gotten into that show (on your suggestion, so thank you for that!) and I did indeed watch the Christmas special. I thought it was quite good...loved the ending :D Still feel sorry for poor Bates though - it seems like he and Anna are doomed never to be together! :(

    Enjoy your books!!

  5. What great Christmas presents! Enjoy!


I love comments, they make me smile! So thank you for taking the time to write one, I read all of them.
I try my best to reply here or on your blog :)
