A Mini-Break :(

I'm obviously not capable of writing much besides the TILT's right now, so I'm going to declare a mini-break for now. I am super busy at work right now, so I don't have my usual slacker time lol and it's too hard to write them at my mom's. I'm sorry y'all, I wish I had internet at home! I really wanted to get caught up on my reviews for this year by the end of December, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen.

If I get the chance to write some reviews, I will definitely get them up though! Until then, I will try to at least continue doing my TILT's and tweeting (@SeeJennRead) and of course reading. Try and stop me! :)

All I Want For Christmas Is....

....books books books books. :) A sort of continuation of yesterday's post, in which I share with you some of the books that I am hoping to get this year for Christmas! A nice, pretty little mosaic taken straight from my Goodreads Wishlist, just in case you want to go check them out in more detail or, you know, buy me one as a gift! Lol...

There are a lot on here that I've already read, but checked out from the library or something and now I want a copy of them. Like The Doll People series by Ann M Martin, which was the first book I reviewed on here! :) And The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, that I borrowed from my dad and loved.

And then there are all the new ones for series that I already read, like the newest Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward (yum!) and Pretty Little Liars.

And of course, new to me that I've had recommended or just saw... Maze Runner and Lola & The Boy Next Door. Oooh...and a couple of craft books, like The Repurposed Library! I hope I get at least a few of these books. :)

TILT: Bookends

Gosh I suck...I haven't posted a review in 2 weeks. I'm sorry, I promise to try harder! How about a little TILT gift-giving idea session for now? :)

In case you haven't noticed, today is December 1st, which means Christmas is 24 days away. (It is not my intention or purpose to exclude other holidays like Kwanzaa or Hanukkah, but since I don't know anything about them, I don't want to sound stupid lol, so feel free to educate me on your holiday of choice if you would like!)

Do you ask for books for the holidays? Do you give them? What about book related stuff, like the awesome bookends below? I always ask for books for Christmas (see tomorrow's post for my wishlist heh.) but I usually don't get very many. My sister says they're boring, which is pure hogwash, so she doesn't want to buy them. Even though she picks out a good 30% of my books for me already. O.o My dad will sometimes buy a stack of books, but not every time.

I always want to give books for gifts, but it depends on the person. Stepsis', stepbro, stepmom and dad are all getting books this year. Ssshhhh...don't tell them! :) Sister will get one if I can find one I like for her. (So probably not)

I'd love to get some book accessories, like these bookends below, or bookmarks (I never seem to have enough!), or some of the awesome prints I've posted in the past. How about you? What's on your bookmas* list? (*I am totally making that a word)

Funky Owl Bookends by CraftyCanadadotcom --so cute, especially if they did them in teal and green, which happens to match my bedroom! :)

Bicycle Bookends by KnobCreekMetalArts --what's my favorite thing after books and kitties and peppermint ice cream? Bicycles! If there were kitties riding these bicycles while eating peppermint ice cream, it would be what my dreams are made of. Somebody should draw a picture of this.

A to Z Bookends at Barnes & Noble --so simple and sleek. Love.

Iron Owl Bookends at Barnes & Noble --duh, I totally need more owls!
