I have finally done it! After numerous people telling me I should definitely read The Book Thief, I actually decided to listen and pick it up. I've heard so many good things about it, so to say my expectations were high.. Is probably an understatement? No, not true. I went in expecting nothing because.. me and reading historical fiction? Not that great of a combination..
If there's one thing I love about one year ending and a new one beginning, it's all the possibilities of setting goals, finding challenges and compiling lists of things we want to achieve during the next year. I figured I can't possibly be on my own in that one, since I know we all love reading challenges. Not to mention setting ourselves reading goals to challenge ourselves throughout the year! So here I am.. setting some goals / challenges!
It's December and I'm still quite.. shocked? People told me my pregnancy would fly by and I knew the year was already flying by but those two things combined? It's unreal, people. It really is. I feel like I should have at least three more months to get everything in order before even thinking about the holidays? Wishful thinking since that's not the amount of time I'm getting, haha. I can't be the only one though..
I wanted something light, romantic and hopefully funny. I was really keeping my fingers crossed for that latter one since my last attempt at a humorous read failed horribly. Did this novel succeed at fulfilling my needs? Only one way to find out!
Contemporary and LGBTQIA+? I could not resist - and I don't think any of you would expect me to either. The synopsis itself intrigued me as well but did this novel gave me everything I hoped for?
November was a month where I focused on the goals I set at the start of the year. I wanted to read five specific books - did I succeed? And how does this month's haul look? Find out here!
Want to find out what I'm going to read in the final month of 2018? Then this is the post you need! Diverse reads everywhere, yay!
