Hey guys! My birthday was two days ago and Christmas was right before that and I got a ton of books. Usually for book haul posts I write about each book individually, but there are too many in this one (all of the books I got, plus the books my sister received). Also, since I didn’t buy any of the books, I can’t exactly explain why I bought them (as I usually do). I’ve decided to group the books together based on how excited I am about them and/or why. I’ll write little blurbs for some of the books.
Please comment if you recognize any of the books and feel like they are in the wrong category! I will be out of town (with no internet) for the weekend, but I’ll look at and respond to comments when I get back!

For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana PeterFreund
When I read Across a Star-Swept Sea, I didn’t realize it was a companion novel. I’m excited to read the book that came before such a great story.
Elantris and The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson
I loved the Mistborn series so much that I simply can’t resist more books that take place in the same universe (The Alloy of Law) or more of his writing.
What books did you guys get this holiday season?
