Thank you, Book Fairy!

I have the most awesome book fairy ever, which makes me one very lucky and very grateful girl! I met my book fairy on JR Ward's message boards years ago and have been friends ever since. Publishers, review sites and authors send her dozens of books every month that she reads like mad and then passes on to me! She came to visit me the other day bearing a big orange bag filled to the brim with books!

Check out the second book from the top on the far right. Score! It's an ARC of Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas!!!

Thank you, Book Fairy! You're the BEST!

The books highlighted in RED are those that were already on my wish list, but all of these books look good. I actually picked up The Devil Wears Plaid by Teresa Medeiros right away and finished it already. I loved it and had a hard time putting it down.

Which book or books do you recommend from this list?

Thanks, again, Book Fairy!!! I'm forever grateful! xo


  1. Wow - that looks like it came from my wishlist!
    I love Tracey Ann Warren, &, of course, JD Robb. But I've so been looking forward to Teresa Medeiros' book....

  2. Wow, I love your book fairy too! =) That's so awesome and what a great haul! I thought 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher was a fantastic book, can't wait to read your thoughts on that one.

  3. This is the most awesome gift a book lover could ever receive. I'm looking over my shoulder and asking myself, "where is my book fairy?" Have a great weekend!

  4. That's an amazing gift, especially for a book lover. I'm looking over my shoulders wanting to know where my book fairy is hiding at? Have a great weekend.

  5. Gina... I was thrilled at how many books I crossed off my wish list. She saved me so much money! That I'll promptly spend on ebooks for my iPad! LOL!

    I'm glad to hear you like Tracey Ann Warren. I haven't read anything by her yet.

    J.D. Robb, of course... but it's going to be a while before I get to Indulgence In Death. I have 12+ books to go until that one.

    I adored The Devil Wears Plaid by Teresa Medeiros. It was my first book by her and it definitely won't be my last!

    My teen has been wanting to read 13 Reasons Why for a while, so I did hand it over to her right away, but if you thought it was fantastic, maybe I'll borrow it back!

  6. ... I know!!!! My book fairy is a good person to know! And NOT just because of the plethora of books... she's also really sweet and kind.

    You have a great weekend, too!!! : )

  7. Elizabeth Hoyt, Tracy Anne Warren, Kathryn Smith, Larissa Ione, Lisa Kleypas, Emma Holly, JD Robb, Erin McCarthy... I've liked their books. But haven't read any of these. Enjoy your beautiful books!

  8. Almost forgot, and Teresa Medeiros too. I've enjoyed her books also.

  9. I'm burning up with jealousy here. They all look good!! Of course, I'd start with Lisa Kleypas and then move on to Elizabeth Hoyt, Emma Wildes, Kathryn Smith, Tracy Anne Warren, Heather Webber, Celeste Bradley, and Erin McCarthy.

    BTW - I read 13 Reasons Why and it is an amazing book. Borrow it back from your teenager after she's done reading it!

  10. Whoa! I just drooled a little! Good friends who share books are a true blessing. Looks like you are supremely blessed!
    I would recommend the Heather Webber, the J.D. Robb (Holy snot! I am so jealous right now!), the Judith Arnold,the Jocelynn Drake and your post yesterday made me put the Lisa Kleypas book on my TBR list.


    I would say something about having a good weekend, but with that pile? *g* No, seriously, have a wonderful weekend!

  11. What a lovely gift. There's something so satisfying about seeing a bunch of books you can't wait to read in piles like that. *happy sigh*

  12. You got a nice haul there. I got a package from my book fairy this week as well.

    I would pick Sin Undone by Larissa Ione. I loved that one. Also
    Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas. Although I don't read her contemp stuff, you can't go wrong with LK. :)

  13. I would definitely recommend J.D. Robb and Heather Webber's books.

  14. Congratulations!! How nice of Book Fairy to treat you with such wonderful books! And an ARC of Kleypas's new book? I'm jealous of course. lol Enjoy!

  15. Oh, happy reading! I am currently reading the Burning Up anthology (specifically Whisper of Sin and Here There Be Monsters) so I say go for that *grin*

  16. Maija...
    Wow, you are so widely read! Why have I never heard of Tracy Anne Warren before now... and here you and Gina are recommending her.

    It's actually almost overwhelming having this selection of amazing books at my disposal all at once! And another vote for Tracy Anne Warren!

    I think I will end up reading 13 Reasons Why ahead of my teen. She's so busy with required reading for school right now, anyway. ;)

    I am blessed to have a good friends who share their books. Especially when I have a hard time parting with mine!

    I'm definitely reading Heather Webber's book. I adored the first one!

    Yay! I hope you like the Lisa Kleypas contemp.

    Hope you and your family are having a great weekend, too! ^_^

    I agree. It is satisfying--if not comforting--seeing piles of books like that.

    I have to finish Ione's Ecstasy Unveiled first! Oops! ;)

    I'll be reading Heather Webber's book soon, but the J.D. Robb will have to wait because I'm only on Purity In Death right now, which is book 16 or something.

    Kate... :x

    Book Fairy is the sweetest. I am very lucky. :D
    You'll probably still end up reading LK's new book ahead of me. LOL!

    Sweet! I think I'm going to read "Here There Be Monsters" from the Burning Up anthology asap, too! I'm hearing such awesome things about The Iron Duke, so I'm anxious to read it! But since I'm very anal about reading things in order, I gotta hit that anthology first!

    I think The Iron Duke might be the first book I'll read on my iPad!

  17. That book fairy must love you! :)

    So many too choose from - I enjoyed the Hoyt and Asher. Hoyt was just a wonderful read. The Asher was different but good too. Also read the Singh & Brook from Buring Up. Both very good.

    And it was fate that the Kleypas was in there. :)

  18. Very, very awesome for you, Christine :) you got some very, very good stuff in there!! :) Hmmm, Love in the Afternoon is one to read :P Deeply, Desperately as well! LOL

    I would also say Demon Blood, although I know you still haven't caught up to it... and Love in the Afternoon was great :P
