Book Blogger Holiday Swap Package

I posted about the Book Blogger Holiday Swap back when I signed up for it. I was lucky because I got Tarie as my Santee and I knew her already so it was easy enough to choose presents for her. I was worried that my Santa’s package might get lost in the mail but thankfully, I got a notice from the post office yesterday and promptly went there after work today. I got so excited when I saw that the package arrived and it looked like it came from somewhere far away. My Santa is The Norwegian Book Girl and yes, she’s from Norway.

These are the contents of the package when I opened it:

Aww look how thoughtful she was, she gift-wrapped everything! I love opening presents and it felt like Christmas in January. These are the contents of the wrapped presents:

A Matter of Magic by Patricia Wrede
Morning is a Long Time Coming by Bette Greene
Evermore by Alyson Noel
a journal with bookshelves on the cover
Lara Adrian bookmarks
Lara Adrian ballpens
a Christmas card that says, “Christmas wishes from Norway”
some candy that I can’t pronounce – I love these! I’m a huge fan of sweets

I didn’t expect to get so many things! I’m truly grateful. Obviously, she browsed through my blog or my wishlist to see what kind of books I’d like. I love the other things that she added. I already tried the chocolate candy, which is like KitKat and I’ll probably start on the gummy things this weekend. I love the journal with the book design! I’m trying to think of what I can write in it. Oh and before I forget, the Alyson Noel book is signed:

Isn’t that great? This package is all sorts of awesome and I love it. I can’t thank you enough, Norwegian Book Girl. 🙂

  1. Nice presents! Candy is an excellent gift, and those three books look promising. I think it’s so cute that she wrapped up each book too. I may steal that idea. 🙂

    • I know, it really is a good idea. Did you notice that the they also had bows on them? They got squished it transit but I don’t mind, I still appreciate the effort. I got so excited because both A Matter of Magic and Morning is a Long Time Coming are in my wishlist and they’re not available here.

  2. So glad you finally got it :)I was so anxious that the package might have been lost in the mail, but it takes time to ship something from Norway, I guess. The package has been travelling for almost two months.

    And I did browse through your wishlist before I bought the books 😉

    Enjoy the books. I am looking forward to reading what you think of them later 🙂 Have a great weekend.

    • I was worried because I know that the local post office isn’t that efficient! It takes time for packages to arrive here in the Philippines. My online book orders in the past months have taken longer than usual to arrive, probably because of the holiday rush. So I think we’re both glad that the package finally got here. 😀

      Thank you so much for all the wonderful things that you put in there! I can’t wait to read and review that books that you included. 🙂 Also, I think the Holiday Swap is a great way to introduce international bloggers to each other.
