This is awesome! Nice selections. I'm almost embarrassed to say I haven't read any of the books you received, and hadn't heard of 95% of them. TBR is growing by the second. hahaha

Don't send anything yet! What if they don't show up at all and never claim their gift? It had happened before :(

Also, I am thinking that maybe Kendra can weed out no-shows and make new pairs out of those of us who are orphans?

M'rella (Mrella) | 101 comments I am getting spoiled rotten. What a wonderful feeling.... ;)

Thank you, dear Santa, for your latest gift!

Wanderer's Heart
Wanderer's Heart (Tales of Amaranth, #7) by Thom Lane




Dear Santa!

Thank you so much for your generosity and the wonderful week of gifts. July is also my Birthday month, and that makes my little stash of new books even more exciting!

Thank you again.

PS Please, don't hesitate to send more clues my way ;) Altho "H" is laconic, for a moment I was hoping that it would lead me somewhere, but - alas! - it left me just as puzzled, scratching my head :D

M'rella (Mrella) | 101 comments Pooo. H was not a clue. H was Hugs.

I solemnly swear that I will never, ever try to read and have GR's conversations on my phone while sitting in traffic. Much less perform such complex operations as copy and paste.

Now. Who is here most likely to send me hugs?

Still scratching....

At least your parents have an excuse! lol

I am afraid to think which holiday my parents were celebrating, considering my country has its own version of Halloween in January, and that obviously doesn't work ;)

And

I received Double Blind (Special Delivery, #2) by Heidi Cullinan from my SS
