The cherry on top of my week, however, was a free copy of Legend by Marie Lu sent to me by Razorbill through the "Request it first for free" promotion occurring on their website! I posted about the new Razorbill website before here, but if you haven't had a chance to check it out yet then do so now! Especially if you are a Canadian because you can get ARCs for free! So basically, my to-read pile continues to grow... but I definitely can't wait to get started on them all!

With Christmas only a week away (YAY!) I've been busy these past few days getting together with various friends and family for holiday dinners and gift exchanges. For example, on Monday, a group of my close friends got together for dinner at Milestones and Secret Santa. My friend Jackie from The Hardcover Harlequinn had picked my name, and presented me with a copy of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (a book I've been dying to read!) and a kickass mug with a quote from my favourite show, Castle! On Wednesday I exchanged gifts early with my boyfriend as well. A couple of the gifts he gave me included The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, the movie adaptation of Something Borrowed, and I Am Better Than Your Kids by Maddox! Obviously my boyfriend knows that books are the best way to a girls heart haha!
