My Christmas

So I arrived back from my aunts yesterday afternoon after a few hours on a very busy motorway. I actually didn't take as many pictures as I'd expected purely because my sister stole my camera (she decided not to take her own and use mine instead, she seemed to forget to tell me that she was planning to do this before we left) and so I ended up not really seeing my camera very much! I also ended up unable to take an OOTD picture because I didn't know where my camera was. Around 90% of the pictures that were taken came out blurred (nobody except me knows how to use my camera) which is why there's only a couple of them.

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas! I also hope that you all didn't get rained as much as we did (it rained so much on Christmas Eve that we couldn't see the car in front of us on the motorway). Despite the rain we still had a wonderful time, ate far too much chocolate and received lots of lovely gifts! It was also really nice to see my Dad's side of the family too because we don't get to see them very often.

There's an obscene amount of presents, mainly because there's so many of us.
I was going to photograph all of the presents I received, until I realised that I'd already ripped half of them open and put some of them away! I did manage to photograph a few of them, though. I bought the Game of Thrones book with a gift voucher on Boxing Day, and I had to include separate photographs of the cover because it's such a beautiful book! If anybody wants a review or a post on anything here (books included), please let me know!

The lighting in my room is terrible, and I was too tired to try and fix it.
These were from my mum, they are amazing!
Did you all have a good Christmas? Did you receive anything nice?

    1. That's true actually! My parents and grandparents always buy me books but nobody else seems to. I think it's because people are never sure what books I like, but I'm surprised that I don't receive more book vouchers now that I'm studying for a literature degree! Hope you had a great Christmas!

  2. I can b a bit of a bookworm so my bf bought me a kindle (I think it's his way of dealing with the pile of books which I have growing around the bedside tables but we'll just go with the fact he was thoughtful! Hehe!) xx

    1. Haha, everyone else keeps trying to convince me to get a kindle, but I enjoy seeing books on my bookshelves and going out to buy them too much!

    1. I think if I didn't have such an amazing cover I wouldn't have been as interested in it! I agree, I love getting cosy things! I don't think I've taken the slippers off since I received them, haha!

  4. I'd love to see a review on the Game of thrones stuff. So much hype about it but I haven't had the chance to really look into it.

    1. I'd definitely recommend that you read the first book and see what you think! I started reading the books before the hype, and I love them. I will definitely have a post up at some point soon! I also received the DVD of season one for Christmas so I'd be happy to add that in. :)

  5. What a beautiful Christmas tree! I was looking for a decent skirt to put around the base of ours just before Christmas to hide the metal stand but fortunately the Christmas presents hid it well enough! XD

    I also got Inside HBO's Game of Thrones for Christmas! I had originally spotted it in Sainsburys in the beginning of December and was so tempted to buy it then and there but decided against it being so close to Christmas time. Luckily my older brother was a little stuck on what to get me so I told him I wanted that book! It's so gorgeous and completely fascinating!

    I got my other half some more Tolkien books for Christmas 'The Children of Hurin' and 'Unfinished Tales'. The good thing is I can read them after him as we're both fans of his work! :p ~♥~

    1. It's lovely isn't it? My aunt has very good taste, I think I stood and admired their tree for the whole time I was there!

      It's a gorgeous book isn't it?! I'm very glad that I bought it in the end, I don't think I would have paid full price for it though, it was £25 in WH Smiths! It was a very fascinating read, I'm not normally interested in behind the scenes books but I really enjoyed this one.

      I found a hardback version of Unfinished Tales in a charity shop the other week! I keep meaning to post about my book finds but I haven't gotten round to it yet. I also have The Children of Hurin, which I really liked (the one I have is illustrated and the illustrations are just beautiful!) I want to get all of my Tolkien books in hardback at some point.
