Book Haul: Birthday Edition

Friday was my birthday, and as you might expect, I acquired a bunch of new books!

My husband and sister-in-law each bought me a guide to crystals. I’ve been getting into crystals over the past two years or so,  and have been desperately wanting a reference guide. Fortunately these are different formats and obviously, I don’t believe one can have too many books on one subject!


I received this beauty from my mother-in-law. I had borrowed a copy from my library and found it so enlightening, I wanted my own, so I put it on my Amazon Wish List (what a fantastic concept that is!)


This one was on my Wish List as well. I’m taking a writing class next month, and  I’m excited to read this in the mean time for motivation!


My brother-in-law gave me an Amazon gift card and I immediately pre-ordered Gretchen Rubin’s new book, The Four Tendencies, which comes out next month. I’ve been looking forward to it for what feels like forever!

I also received a gift card to Barnes & Noble, so I had to go browse this weekend! I found a cute notebook to use as a book journal and treated myself to a novel that’s been on my TBR for a long time, and was on sale for $6!






And while it isn’t exactly a book, I  picked up this Sherlock Holmes game my husband and I have looked on previous visits. We played it in the car with friends on a road trip this weekend and it’s a lot of fun!


What do you think of my new loot?!

Do you receive books as gifts often?
