I’m way too old to believe in Santa. That myth was destroyed somewhere in the neighborhood of eight years old when I saw my parents wrapping presents. However, there are a few books that I’m really excited about.

Yesterday, I received my Quarterly box from Book Riot (yes, I’m talking about Book Riot again). Opening that was like Yule (which was Saturday – and I got some neat stuff for that. Check my Instagram feed.). There’s an unboxing at the end of this post.  But in the box was Lexicon by Max Barry.

Can I just say that I’m so excited about this? It’s about a bunch of kids in a school that teaches them how to use words to be manipulative. Book Riot calls it a literary thriller. So you know what I’m going to be doing this afternoon…? (Actually, I’m going to finish The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making.)

On the 26th I’ll get Sean Beaudoin’s The Infects in my mailbox. I loved Who Killed Wesley Payne — such a lovely piece of satire and commentary on the clique system within secondary education. It’s hilarious, it’s over the top, and it’s noir. From what I’ve read of The Infects, I can expect the same kind of hilarity. Definitely needed.

So those are the two books that Santa is bringing me this week. Yay new books!
