4 in mystery:
- Venetian Blood, by Christine Evelyn Volker – ebook

Blog recap in November
I participated in Nonfiction November, which made me of course add quite a few nonfiction books to my TBR!
I organized 2 giveaways. It was fun to be part of the Gratitude Giveaway Hop. There will be something similar in December!
The giveaway for December at France Book Tours is very special and now available.
As part of the Classics Club, we got our new spin – see here what I got!
My public library is organizing a winter challenge: we had to mention our favorite genres and list our last 4 books read, and they pick a book for us to read and review in December. Isn’t that fun? I’m totally thrilled and will tell you on Monday what they picked for me.
