We have officially entered the final month of 2016. Yup, it’s the season to be jolly and I am left marveling at how fast this year has gone by.
November was a good reading month for me and I can say that I enjoyed all four of the books I read. Blood for Blood broke my heart into tiny little pieces. I’m still reeling from the trauma but it was still a good book, no matter how bitter I am over a certain moment. So, following the doom and gloom of Blood for Blood I needed a pick me up and I’d heard a lot of great things about Sarina Bowen’s True North series and thought I’d give it a shot. Well, I can tell you now it definitely cheered me up and it made me want to hop on a plane to Vancouver and hunt down a certain grouchy farmer. 😉

I have no tbr set for this month and as always I’m just going to go with the flow of things. However, with it being December I am definitely feeling the need to indulge in some cute winter romances, so if you have any recommendations let me know.
In TV land I have finally made the jump and watched the first episode of Yuri on Ice. I’m reserving my judgement for the time but the opening credits are definitely a hit with me.
With Christmas just around the corner I have been getting into that festive spirit. I’m probably the jolliest member of my family when it comes to this holiday because I just love indulging in all things Christmasy; including some epic Christmas tunes aka the perfect baking music. Brett Eldredge’s Christmas album ‘Glow’ is my current favourite.
November was a good reading month for me.
