Books I Got for Christmas!

This Christmas, I received A LOT of wonderful books, so I thought I'd share some with you!  I'm super excited about reading them. :)  I was planning on putting pictures of the books on here, but I can't seem to find the right ones. :(  Sorry!

Kristin Lavransdatter by Un.dset and translated by Tina
I: The Wreath
II: The Wife

I CONSUMED these books within 5 days of getting them.  Seriously, they are SO good.  Kristin is one of the most "real" characters I've ever "met". Though she is a huge sinner, I love her and I'm going to be very sad to say goodbye to her.  I only got the first two books in the series, but I can't wait to buy the third!  Thank you, Leila, for writing about these books!  You got me so interested that I asked for them for Christmas! :)

The Secret Diary of Elisabeth Leseur and Elisabeth Leseur Selected Writings 

I got these from Boomz, in honor of my patron saint of this year! :)  

The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

I've finished The Magician's Nephew yesterday (that honestly might be my favorite one), and now I'm in the middle of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.  :)  I'll never get too old for these books. 

The Power of a Praying Wife 

I was inspired by Heart of St. Monica to ask for this book for Christmas! :)  I can't wait to start reading it!

Did any of you receive some good books for Christmas? :)
