Happy holidays bookish friends :) 

I finally have some books to share!
It's been a very long time since I have received/bought anything... 
I wanted to do a vlog to show you my big goofy grin, lol, but I only had 2 physical book and I find it really hard to record ebooks... plus, I still don't look my best after having baby #3, I'll spare you for a few more weeks ;)
