How excited is everyone for the holidays?!? I am SO EXCITED!! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. As this post is being published, my husband and I are wrapping up a long Thanksgiving weekend in Prague. There will be good food, beautiful libraries and a few Christmas markets. I am sure I will be sharing lots of pictures next month. I am also looking forward to December. I will be spending about three weeks in the States for the holidays.
November was a pretty good month. I participated in my first ever NaNoWriMo! I wrote a lot and ate even more of those little Italian pocket coffees. I did write my 50,000 words, so that is good. I did not finish my book yet though. It still needs about 10,000 more words. I am mentally exhausted though so I am taking a bit of a break from my characters (for now).
My blog also turned one in November! Yay! There is still time to enter the special giveaway I am hosting in celebration of my first blogaversary. Click here to enter. You can win any book that I have reviewed over the past year, plus a $25 Amazon gift card.
I read a total of 18 books this month. I enjoyed most of them, which is always a good thing. I read a lot of great ones, a few average ones and there were only a few that I did not care for.
These are the books that I read:
Favorite books read this month:
I have two favorite books read this month. It should come as no surprise that one of them was Winter by Marissa Meyer. It was a phenomenal ending to the series! The other book that I loved this month was Little Peach by Peggy Kern.
Most disappointing book read this month:
I guess it was As I Lay Dying. I know everyone is supposed to love Faulkner, but I just don't. The book was boring and rambling and I had to force myself to finish it.
