November recap

I can’t believe it’s already December. In Belgium, there will be no Christmas parties with people outside your own household. I’m not exactly a Christmas person and don’t have a big family, so I don’t mind (a chill Christmas holiday will be fun). But I know it will be a difficult time for a lot of people, especially if you’re single (there’s a rule in Belgium that when you’re single you can see two extra people instead of one – as is the case for households).

What did I read in November?


I finished my Goodreads Reading Challenge of reading 35 books. The Fabergé secret was my 35th book. I hope to finish around 38 books this year. It was quite a good reading month. I loved the ending of Sovereign, enjoyed the gates of Athens and also the Fabergé secret was a surprising good read! But I wasn’t able to read everyday, as I had some big deadlines at work and some concentration problems when reading because I was sooo tired.

Number of pages read: 1.005
Number of books finished: 3
Favorite read: Sovereign by C.J. Sansom
Centuries visited: 1st century B.C., 8th century, 16th century and 20th century
Countries visited: England, Greece and Russia
Currently reading: I’m at page 203 of A time for swords
Next up: I’m not sure yet, but probably ‘The forgotten orphan’ as it’s my last Netgalley read for this year.



Added to my TBR

The boyfriend and I are maybe a bit obsessed with the Hamilton musical and you may see that in the books I added this month. I was looking for historical fiction books and authors about Hamilton/the American Revolution. If you have any recommendations, let me know in the comments.


  • Black sails season 3 (after having watched the first two seasons more than once)
