The week’s halfway over, yay! I really can’t wait to kick back and relax this weekend because man, I’m just not feeling the whole work thing this week. I just want to cuddle with my kitty, drink some wine, and read like, a thousand books. I’m actually in the middle of three different books right now! I finally picked up the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld (which I’m loving so far!) and I found The Diviners by Libba Bray (which I’m hoping picks up eventually…) at my local library. I’m also letting what sounds like a distinguished British gentleman read A Game of Thrones to me on audiobook while I’m at work. So many books, so little time, amirite?

Speaking of books, I recently participated in an Undercover Cupid gift swap with my favorite blogging group and was gifted with this gorgeous copy of Grimm’s Fairy Tales!

My secret swap partner was the lovely Stacey of Geeks & Lattes, and she really hit the nail on the head with this book! It’s absolutely beautiful, with shiny silver foil on the cover and pretty silver edges. There are illustrations throughout and the end of each story is decorated with a cute little gnome drawing!

Basically, I’m crazy about my gift! Thanks again, Stacey! And thanks to Danielle of From Girlie to Nerdy for organizing another awesome gift swap. If you want in on the fun, you should join the Geek Girls x Bloggers Facebook group! No joke, I would have WAY less fun blogging if it weren’t for this group of fun and supportive gals<3

Did you get anything especially fantastic for Valentine’s day this year? My husband and I don’t really celebrate V-day, so the gift swap and card exchange (that I’ll be talking about in a few days!) really made the holiday special for me:)

    OMG how absolutely perfect is this book!?! I love it – thanks for linking up 🙂

  2. Okay, so now I’m EVEN MORE JEALOUS. That book is more beautiful than it looked online, I’m definitely going to have to suck it up and pay the insane shipping to get this sent to Canada at some point.

    I’m glad you like it! 🙂

  3. Gorgeous! Love it! I might have to add that book to my collection.

  4. Wow, that is a gorgeous book!! Love it! And I completely agree…the communities found within blogging are definitely amazing (at least the ones I’ve found are!) 🙂
