Showcase Sunday: Christmas Edition!

It's Sunday and that means one thing; Showcase Sunday a fun weekly meme hosted by Vicky over @Books, Biscuits and Tea. It's a great way of showing off what we've bought, borrowed and received this week.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a wonderful New Year! It seems so long ago now that I awoke all excited (yes I know I'm 23 but c'mon Christmas is Christmas!) rushed downstairs all eager to open all of my presents. And of course, being the bookish book lover that I am I was gifted quite a lot of books or bookish things (now I just need to find the time to read them all!). I'm so grateful for all of my lovely presents and I'm a very lucky girl, so I thought I'd share with all of you book lovers what I had (as I know you all appreciate some good books!)
