November has been an amazing month! My husband and I visited Tromso, Norway for Thanksgiving and had such an amazing time. I do think that's one of the most beautiful countries I have been to. We saw the Northern Lights, saw some whales, went reindeer sledding, and even ate some tasty reindeer. It didn't actually snow until the last day we were there, but we still had such an amazing time. It was freezing, but I love the cold so that was a bonus. It was a once in a lifetime experience for sure.
Here are a few pictures from our trip.
I am quite sure that these pictures don't even begin to give Norway justice, but you get the general idea.
On the blogging and reading front, I feel like things are going really well. I am still a bit behind with some of my blogging duties (I swear I will reply to all your comments soon!), but I am out of my blogging and reading slumps. Woo-hoo! I have read some amazing books this month (and a few not so good ones, but you can't win them all).
I have also been really good about not requesting ARCs. I have only requested (and received!) one in the last two months and that is one I was really excited about. This ARC hiatus has really allowed me to catch up on my current batch of ARCs, as well as read some of the books that have remained unread on my Kindle.
And I won a giveaway hosted by Shannon @ It Starts At Midnight! I have already received my book and I am so excited to read this one.
It's kind of a retelling of Hansel and Gretel and it's set in Poland during World War II. I have no idea how I first heard about this one (maybe a blogger??), but it gets really good reviews and the premise sounds amazing
My blog also turned two this month!! I really can't believe I have been blogging for two years. Honestly, it feels like longer. My blog and I have had our ups and downs, but I still love doing it.
I read seventeen books this month.
Here are a couple of my favorite reads:
