I realise I'm a little behind on this one, but this Christmas' Booking Through Thursday is:

What books are/were you hoping to get as gifts this holiday season?
Which books DID you get?
Are you happy, or did you rush right out to your local bookstore to pick up the book you’d hoped you’d be getting?

The books I got this Christmas are:

Cooking for Geeks
by Jeff Potter (I had a copy of this previously when I lived in Canada but sadly had to leave it behind due to luggage weight limits)

Shadows of Self by Brandon Sanderson - the latest in the Mistborn series

A Trail of Ink by Mel Starr - the third in his Hugh de Singleton medieval mystery series

They were all from family and I'd specifically asked for each of them, which is how we usually do presents, so we all end up with something we actually want!

How about you, readers? Did you have a good book haul this Christmas?

Ooh, i also picked up Shadows of Self which i have been looking forward to for a while. In the meantime i got my Sanderson fix from his novellas and his new YA series 'The Reckoners' that have all been really enjoyable. If you haven't checked them out yet i definitely recommend them. :)

Excellent, I'll look out for his Sanderson's shorter works after Shadows of Self :)
