November Wrap up - Book Haul & What to Expect Next Month

Welcome, welcome my dear readers.
Welcome to the blog.

The end of the year is near! I'm always so excited for Christmas, so this year is no difference. The Christmas tree in my Livingroom is bringing loads of joy and lovely sparkling lights. I've bought presents, and December will be a month of spending time with loved ones, as far as that's possible and making it nice and cozy in my classroom.

Sadly I was sick last week, nothing COVID related, but had to stay home from work for 3 days. Luckily I felt a lot better last Saturday so I could spend the weekend relaxing and getting my strength back.

3 weeks left in the schoolyear and only a month in this year. Time is flying!
Hopefully you have amazing plans for December and get to spend it with lovely presents (BOOKS!), delicious food and your loved ones, even though precautions are in place everywhere in the world. Let's stay safe, stay healthy and do the things that are possible.

Thanks for sticking with my blog and for reading!
Have a great month with loads of Christmas cheer and good books.

But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister's ex-boyfriend, Josh.

As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.

Review: Anxious People

Fredrik Backman
Started reading: October 4th 2020
Finished the book: October 20th 2020
Pages: 352
Genres: Contemporary, Fiction, Mystery
Published: September 8th 2020
Source: E-book
Goodreads score: 4.36
My score:
This is a poignant comedy about a crime that never took place, a would-be bank robber who disappears into thin air, and eight extremely anxious strangers who find they have more in common than they ever imagined.

Viewing an apartment normally doesn’t turn into a life-or-death situation, but this particular open house becomes just that when a failed bank robber bursts in and takes everyone in the apartment hostage. As the pressure mounts, the eight strangers slowly begin opening up to one another and reveal long-hidden truths.

As police surround the premises and television channels broadcast the hostage situation live, the tension mounts and even deeper secrets are slowly revealed. Before long, the robber must decide which is the more terrifying prospect: going out to face the police, or staying in the apartment with this group of impossible people.
