Monthly Bookhaul (December 2016).

Standard

I know we’ve all gotten a mega haul this December!  😀

Most of my December haul came from Christmas, of course. I also participated in my first ever The Broke and the Bookish secret santa! That was such a fun experience, and something I plan on doing next year.

My haul from #TBTBSanta was perfect! Stephanie at In Wonderland completely hit it out of the park! Not only did she cover all my candy loves, my love of coffee, adorable fox magnetic bookmarks, and owl socks! But she also got me three books I’ve been anticipating!  🙂

If you’ve never heard of Jamie’s secret santa – definitely check it out next year!

Okay, so it’s not the most attractive picture of all my Christmas Day loot, but I was completely spoiled on Christmas! I don’t get myself a lot of things during the year, because I always put my son before myself and get him things he wants . . . so Christmas is always my “year – all at once” kind of thing,  😀

I got a lot of Pop!s that I have been wanting, in addition to the Barnes & Noble exclusive Harry Potter DVDs with collectible cards. And some other oddball things: Harry Potter mystery minis, Grumpy Cat coloring book, a few bookmarks, and some owl socks (not all pictured). I also got this Harry Potter Tervis, and do excuse my excessive sweet tooth with all the candy!

Funko Pop!s include:

I’ve been wanting a Daryl for my collection, but none of the others I have seen really looked like him, but this one was the closest one that I have seen that actually resembled him. Now my The Walking Dead collection is complete – since I didn’t really want any other ones.

There are a few Harry Potter Pop!s left that I want, but unlike a lot of people . . . I have no desire to start a massive collection… yet,  😀

Now on to the motherload – the book haul includes:

Oh man, so many books I’ve been wanting! I wanted to replace my current set of Harry Potter books with the box set, and realized the spines look different. But that’s okay. The Jackaby series is a highly anticipated series for me, and everything else I’m super excited to get to!  🙂

I traded some of my hardcover Harry Potter books that I replaced with the Harry Potter set, and got these three in return:

If you have any unwanted books, please consider contacting Nori at Read Write Love 28. She’s only looking for specific books at this time, mostly books part of a series, but she may open it up to different books. Nori is collecting books for low income schools in her area and needs as much help as possible,  🙂  Here’s the tweet with more information.

I love my Harry Potter setup! I’m still seeking the Quidditch Draco Malfoy – for a reasonable price – for the Quidditch Harry and the golden snitch setup.

Now all I want is the Harry & Hedwig from Hot Topic, Luna to put on the Hogwarts Express, and a Dementor. Then Mad Eye Moody and Professor McGonagall.

My Harry Potter setup also includes all eight of the movies that are Barnes & Noble exclusives – with collectible cards inside, but I haven’t opened them yet to see what they are.

I took these pictures before I got the last bit of bookmail, and I recently found a Barbossa in my closet – I was hoarding things until after Christmas – from Pirates of the Caribbean Pop! that is now next to the Firstlife book.

What did you get for Christmas that you’re most excited about?
