Book Bloggers Secret Santa

I signed up for the Book Bloggers Secret Santa last month, and chose and sent my gift. This morning the postlady brought me a packet of joy!

My present from my Secret Santa had arrived. I couldn’t wait to get inside the jiffy, nice purple wrapping paper (gets the thumbs up from Juliet who is into purple in a big way), and a cute card from an anonymous sender.

I opened up the present straight away to find a super book, The Ice Queen by Alice Hoffman, and a delightful Christmas decoration of a wooden dancing lady who doesn’t take much persuading to let her limbs fly akimbo!
The Alice Hoffman is a book I remember reading great reviews of when it came out, so I shall really look forward to reading it – it goes straight onto my bedside table pile. The lady in red went straight on the tree and fits in perfectly with my red-based colour scheme! I adore crafty handmade ornaments at Christmas, and you can never go wrong with a good book – so a perfect present.
THANK YOU Secret Santa.

    I’ve read good reviews of The Ice Queen as well, so look forward to hearing your thoughts. I read The Blue Diary by her years ago and was very impressed by it.Did your secret santa let you know who they were?

    Glad you liked the gifts. I was going to keep quiet, but I love giving presents too much so am owning up as your secret santa. I really enjoyed your review of The Ice Queen. Hope you have a happy new year.

    Thank you so much Rhinoa. I’m really glad to make your acquaintance. I hope you’ll take this as a compliment, but looking at your profile and blog page you rather remind me of a younger me! I’m also a cat-loving (but currently catless) Arthurian-nut scientist. I’ll add you to my blog list!Thanks again and Happy New Year!

    No problem, I take it as a comliment. I will add your blog to my reader but I am desperately behind at the moment. PS You really should think about getting a cat!
