I am not sure why but it feels a bit strange at the grand old age of 31 to spend most of my time reading books that are categorised as YA (Young Adult)… but I really enjoy reading them so I guess I should worry less and just buy more books! One of my most anticipated releases of 2017 had to have been An Enchantment of Ravens and so I had to preorder it. It arrived a little late but I read it over two evenings (which probably tells you all you need to know about how good it is!
I feel like we have barely had time to blink and already I am writing my end of January posts! We read so many books over Christmas and in December in general it feels like this month’s post is a little bit empty! Though there has been lots of chances to read as the weather has been awful here. But we have spent time playing games and doing jigsaws.
It’s really important to my husband and I that Boo grows up being able to speak different languages. After all she has family in lots of different countries. My husband is half Danish and half Dutch and so he has family in Denmark and Holland. So, obviously, Danish and Dutch are two languages we really want Boo to be able to speak. My husband often speaks Danish to Boo, though at the minute she prefers to answer in English. It is amazing what she can understand though. And she will tell her daddy, (and sometimes me), that she loves us in Danish which is very cute!
This month has been a great month for books – especially for Boo. She has had her book advent calendar, so each morning she has woken up and hunted for the book which her elf has hidden. It’s fun and Boo loves searching for her book and elf. One morning the elf was riding on her scooter!
November has been a really busy month for us. I haven’t done nearly as much reading as I would like, both to Boo and for myself. But I am sure that is going to change come the first of December when Boo starts her Book Advent Calendar! I have also been buying even more books for Boo for her birthday and Christmas! Oops! But I digress, here are the books we’ve read in November.
