I can’t believe it’s already December! I spent last weekend putting up Christmas decorations with my mom and my 5-year-old nephew, so I’m definitely starting to get into the holiday spirit already.
November was a mixed month for me. The sun setting earlier meant that I didn’t get to spend a lot of time outside, so I spent most of my free evenings watching New Girl and The Crown. To balance that out, I took every Friday off of work — last week, I went to the Christmas Market to drink an oat milk cookie latte in front of the giant tree, which is one of my favourite winter traditions!
Here are the top 3 books I’m hoping to read this month:
BOOK PURCHASES/FROM PUBLISHERS
- In the Dream House | 5 stars | I can’t stop thinking about this book. It’s beautiful, heavy, haunting, and cathartic.
