Day out with Friends.

I have made some really good friends through book forums.  I regularly meet with two of my friends - Dani and Julie.  When we meet up we have a good discussion about books over lunch and often recommend new books to each other.  Then after lunch we hit the book stores!  I've had a bountiful day today not just on books alone.  I managed to get some lovely stationery, two teddy toys for Hades and Dani kindly gave me some presents.

Above is a picture of the books I got today:
Cuckoo by Julia Crouch
A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan
Wither by Lauren Destefano
Nocturne by Christine Johnson
Gypsy Boy by Mikey Walsh
The School At Thrush Green/Friends At Thrush Green by Miss Read
Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton
Time's Legacy by Barbara Erskine
Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon

Some presents from Dani.  I collect the little voodoo string dolls.

The stationery is above and below.

I'm really jealous of the paperblanks book you got! I will have to take a photo of the one that Matt bought for me!
It took me AGES to find a place for all the books I got yesterday, haha! I had such fun with them all!
Did Hades like his new toys? xxxx

It was a great day out Dani. Just the tonic I needed :D I keep looking and stroking the notebook, it's so beautiful. I spent ages putting the books on various book sites. I'm so chuffed with some of them I don't think I can read quick enough. They will be winging their way to you when I've read them, I did see them on your Goodreads wishlist ha ha. Hades loves the dinosaur teddy the best, it's because it has lots of different textures. He was so excited he got toys and was bouncing around the room. Hugs Jen xx
