Hello all! Happy holidays!! I’ll be sharing the books that I got during Christmas! I got four really good books and I’m incredibly excited to share them! I also got some book stickers to put on my laptop to show the world what a book nerd I am!!
I’ve been wanting to read more books by or with diverse people, which is why I’m thrilled with what I got. Two of these are continuations of series that I’ve been reading and two others are new-to-me books that have either LGBT characters or Latinx characters. Eeeeekkkk!!
UPDATE (1/15/18): I got two more books! These are delayed Christmas presents, from people I didn’t see for Christmas but still got me a present. This also includes a B&N gift card!
So the books I got are:

But when Ersel’s childhood friend and suitor catches them together, he gives Ersel a choice: say goodbye to Ragna or face justice at the hands of the glacier’s brutal king.
Determined to forge a different fate, Ersel seeks help from Loki. But such deals are never as one expects, and the outcome sees her exiled from the only home and protection she’s known. To save herself from perishing in the barren, underwater wasteland and be reunited with the human she’s come to love, Ersel must try to outsmart the God of Lies.
