I know we’re well into 2017 and Christmas is a thing of the past (to be fair it’s only like two weeks ago, okay maybe three but whatever, I’m still in the Christmas spirit) but Doreth promised you that I would show you all the awesome goodies she got me so I will do so.

I had been eyeing this book on bookdepository for a while, but since I never really took the time to figure out the premise of this book I never picked it up. But when I saw this book on the shelf at Boekspot Hoog Catharijne (which is a place where you can pick up a free book or leave a book you finished for someone else to enjoy) when I was there with Inge I decided to give it a go. And I am so glad I did!
December is upon us and the Christmas vibes are real. And when I think Christmas, I think Winter. Therefore I am going to share with you, the top 5 books I want to read this winter. Now, first I would like to give a quick disclaimer. Due to the fact that I have put myself on a book buying ban, I will only mention books that are already on my shelf. Now let’s get into the books!

I bought this book a few weeks ago in preparation for NaNoWriMo and I figured I’d share my thoughts on this book with you. In case anyone else is looking for writing advice from a master of the craft.
November is on its way and that means NaNoWriMo is nearing. For those of you who don’t know what this means, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write a 50.000-word novel in 30 days! We have both participated and failed epically last year. Therefore we are in no way entitled to give anyone writing advice. But we like to live on the edge (sarcasm intended) and will give you our tips for preparing for NaNoWriMo.
