1. A person cannot truly be on a staycation unless she/he commits to watching a lot of TV! Luckily, I had Doctor Who and the Winchesters to keep me company. Time travel and demon hunting has never been so much fun!
2. No staycation could be complete with out video games, so it's quite possible that I wasted many hours hurtling very angry birds, collecting bananas, and getting harassed by a game show host in a truly hideous red suit.
3. Don't worry, I read some books too! Geez, what kind of book blogger would I be if I didn't read any books on my staycation?! I fear I may have lost some precious reading time on Christmas and New Years though, but I took advantage of the time I had left and managed to finish three fabulous books! I'm slowly, but surely working on writing my reviews and I will hopefully have at least one of them posted by the end of this week!
Curious what I read? Of course you are! Well have a look...
4. The best staycations fall around the holidays, which mean that I got to open presents! Want to know what I got? All you have to do is follow the rabbit down the rabbit hole... errr... or just take a peak at what's IMM :o)
In My Mailbox Christmas Special!!!
I got lots of wonderful goodies on Christmas, including a toaster oven and a new flat iron, but this is a book blog darn it! So for this Christmas special I will only be showing you the books I got! I mean, did you really want to see a picture of my flat iron? I didn't think so! Then again, there was this one gift that I got from my wonderful, handsome, and overly generous boyfriend that I would like to share with all of you. Even if it's not technically a book, I can still read books on it...
Now as you look at this picture, I want you to imagine that the opening theme to Star Wars is playing! To say that I was shocked to receive an iPad is a bit of an understatement, especially considering that I asked for a kindle! The way I figure it though, this is something that my boyfriend and I can share. The fact that I've already caught him sneaking off with my iPad on several occasions only strengthens my belief that this new toy was meant to be enjoyed by both of us :oP
Books I received this holiday season:
|If you have not read any of these books what are you waiting for?! They're awesome! Well, I hope everyone enjoyed this post! I only have a few precious hours left of my staycation and I'm going to spend that time reading! I can't wait to catch up with all of you and see what I missed! Before I go back to reading though, their is just one thing I need to do...|
