This thread is to post what you received for Secret Santa when you open your gift!! This way people can keep track of when to reveal themselves to the person they had!

Opening the presents folder because I know that 2 people have already received :D


message 3: by Laura (new)

Laura Wow! That was fast! What's everyone else going to do? Open their book right away or wait for Christmas?

Mel (thatgirlbookworm) | 500 comments Mod
Depending when I get it, likely right away. If it's like the 20th or something I'll try to wait for Christmas Eve but yeah I'm impatient lol

I love when you all start getting gifts, I get to delete emails LOL

EnglishElle | 32 comments Wow! That's amazing it arrived so fast! I will be anxiously awaiting for my Secret Santa pick to post on here now. I swear this group is making me a mailbox lurker. Haha!

I love cleaning my inbox, Mel! I bet that is a nice feeling, especially since you probably have over 50 emails from us. :D


message 7: by Mercedes (new)

Mercedes (sadiegator) Mine arrived today! I'm going to hold off on opening it though!! I want to make it until Christmas Eve but I might lose my self control before then! But I will let you know what I got when I decide to open it. Thank you Mel for hosting Secret Santa again this year. I can only think of how hard this must be to organize!

So I received my gift today!! My Secret Santa was Katie and she sent me such a lovely gift!! She sent me a signed copy of The Raven King by Maggie Steifvater and a whole bunch of amazing New York souvenirs! This was the motivation I needed to finally read book 3 of this series.

Thanks so much for the gift Katie!!! It was such an amazing gift!

message 32: by Angelique (new)

Angelique I got mine too! But I'm sorry, I couldn't wait for Christmas so I opened mine. Santa gave me Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston , which seems an interesting read for the holidays. So thank you to whoever my secret Santa is.

It really bothers me when some people who join never contact the person who bought them their gift. Like you don't need to become best friends but you should at least thank them.


message 46: by Mel (new)

Mel (thatgirlbookworm) | 500 comments Mod
Also, I'm super excited many of these gifts are arriving and that you're all loving them!!


message 47: by Ashley Marie (new)

Ashley Marie  | 56 comments I haven't seen my receiver post anything about getting theirs :-/

And I would love to know who sent me Truthwitch! <3


Karlyflower *The Vampire Ninja, Luminescent Monster & Wendigo Nerd Goddess of Canada (according to The Hulk)* (karly-thevampireninja) I got notification that I have a delivery but I can't get to the post office until tomorrow.... I'm thinking it's my SS prezzie but I'll let you know ;)


message 49: by Mel (new)

Mel (thatgirlbookworm) | 500 comments Mod
Yeah Ashley I tried to ask her to send you a reply but she won't reply so.


message 50: by Ashley Marie (new)

Ashley Marie  | 56 comments It's okay Mel. All we can do is try.
