Last week was a busy one for me and it was a struggle to get into the holiday spirit. There's been a lot to do and not enough time to do it, but when I opened my mailbox and saw that my Secret Santa had gifted me a special package, all the stress just melted away in the joy of books! I received a gift from Kathy over at Book Diary 2010, and boy was it a good one!
Kathy bought me one of the books I've most been wanting in the past year and I was so excited I tore open the package and got started right away! The book is called The Third Policeman by Flan O'Brien and it was probably the most bizarre and fun book I've read all year! I've started my review so I can share it all with you, but I'm still a little stumped in even trying to describe it. It was a brilliant book written by a brilliant Irish author and I hope to be able to talk about it with you all very soon. Her package also included a bonus in the form of First Thrills, a compendium of suspense stories by some of the best writers in the genre. I'm also excited about that one and look forward to reading it.
I loved my Secret Santa gift and think Kathy did an excellent job shopping for me. I'm so grateful and excited about the books she chose. Thanks ever so much Kathy, and Happy Holidays to all of you out there. I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed holiday season with friends and family!
