Christmas Book & Fandom Haul 2017


Although January has already begun, I think that there’s always room for some Christmas spirit. Christmas hauls are among my favorite Youtube videos and blog posts to read and watch, so I wanted to feature some of my Christmas gifts here on Fangirl Fury. Santa and my parents did a fantastic job as always fulfilling this fangirl’s bookish and fandom desires with the following gifts.

I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith- I ASKED FOR A CLASSIC BOOK FOR CHRISTMAS, WHAT???? I saw I Capture the Castle float around bookstagram in 2017, and I became even more intrigued by the book when I saw that the latest edition had a foreword by Jenny Han and a blurb from J.K. Rowling. Between two of my all-time favorite authors’ contributions and its stunning cover, I’m so happy to have this book on my shelf, soon to be read!


Renegades by Marissa Meyer- Renegades was a bit of an unexpected Christmas gift, but Santa knows how much I love Marissa Meyer. I’m really excited to have my own copy of Renegades because I never realized how gorgeous the cover was in person. Although I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews, I am excited to give Renegades a go, but I think I won’t be reading it until closer to the release date of the next book in the duology.


The Midnight Star by Marie Lu- One of my reading goals for 2018 is to reread The Young Elites and continue on the series with The Rose Society and The Midnight Star. Like Renegades and my Marissa Meyer collection, this means that I now have all of Marie Lu’s books!


Alex and Ani Hogwarts Two Tone Charm Bracelet- My Alex and Ani bracelets are among my most worn and favorite jewelery, so I was beyond excited when they came out with their Harry Potter collection. I’m in love with this bracelet featuring the Hogwarts crest because although it obviously symbolizes Harry Potter, I feel that it’s a bit understated and will blend in well with the rest of my Alex and Ani bracelets. Plus who doesn’t want to walk around with Hogwarts pride??


Parks and Recreation Funko Pops—Leslie Knope, April Ludgate, & Andy Dwyer—Funko Pops are among my favorite gifts to give and receive, so I was super excited to receive more Funko Pops from my favorite TV show. I now have 5 out of the 6 Parks & Rec Funko Pops that have been released so far, and I admit that I probably won’t be getting Lil’ Sebastian anytime soon—me and Ben Wyatt are on the same page about that one.

Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley Nano Metalfigs- I received these mini versions of Hermione and Ron in my stocking. I’ve actually never seen these type of figures before, but I think they’re pretty cute and unique gifts for any Potter fan.


Book Con tickets- YES I WILL BE ATTENDING THE BEST BOOKISH WEEKEND OF THE YEAR  AGAIN IN 2018! I’ve been going back and forth about applying to Book Expo this year, so I’m excited to at least have Book Con already in the works!

What bookish or fandom gifts did you give or receive this year? Share in the comments!

  1. Such an awesome haul! Love your Alex and Ani bracelet, my cousin got me a Wonder Woman one. Love your funko pops, too. I have yet to buy the Parks & Rec ones but they all look awesome.

    For fandom stuff, I got a Belle funko pop, a Wonder Woman metal sign, and some fandomish clothes. For books, I got Wonder Woman: Warbringer and Nowhere Girls. I can’t really remember anything else since it’s all put away in my room now lol 🙂

    • I love Alex and Ani’s Wonder Woman stuff!!! I really want one of their WW necklaces.

      The Beauty and the Beast Funkos are so cute! And great books! I’ve heard a lot of good things about Nowhere Girls.

      • Me too! All I have to do now is figure out how to adjust my bracelet. I did it last time with my bf but I don’t remember how now haha

        The BATB ones are some of my favorites. I have almost the entire live-action series and all of the Belles they included since Belle’s my favorite princess.

        I’m so excited to pick Nowhere Girls up. Once I finish Chamber of Secrets, I’m taking a little break from HP and starting it.

  2. I didn’t get any bookish Christmas presents! Hahha, I’m such a bad bookworm. I got clothes and jewelry. I have expensive tastes maybe. I LOVE funkos and it’s so fun that your parents and Santa 😉 know you so well! I would definitely want a complete set of a series. And I need me an Alex and Ani bookish jewelry! I agree it should mix in with your other pieces so well Haley! ♥️
