Well, this is the time of year when we, to those who celebrate this holiday season, celebrate Christmas!
I've been thinking about what I want for Christmas. Most people would be asking for electronic gifts: "I want an iPad, I want the new brand of that phone, etc." Those aren't bad gift, truth be told, and that comes from someone who wishes for some musical albums.
All I really want though, is to have a pen pal who has the same interests and such to send snail mail to and give/receive little mementos from. I'm not even kidding; that's all I want for Christmas.
I think I wanted a pen pal all of a sudden because, one, I missed my pen pal from fourth grade, and two, sending snail mail is a lot more meaningful that a quick text or snapshot that people can send to their contacts on Snapchat. (Um, that is what you do if you have Snapchat, right? I don't have one, but I think that is what you do with the app, according to the people who have one.)
It's also pretty strange though. This is the first in five years I didn't ask for a book.
The only books I'd ask is The City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, Gone by Michael Grant, Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, and The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima. I've read a lot of good series this year, and my friends have been recommending it to me many good books.
Speaking of books right now, I am planning to do some mini reviews and a meme inspired by the book Wonder, by R.J. Palacio!
Until then, stay strong and wonderful!
