When I was a kid, I’ve got the regular ones which had a bit of chocolate for 24 days of December. I remember once my father got me an Advent Calendar from Germany which had 23 kinder eggs, plus one huuuuge one for 24th. In recent years, since my tastes are pretty specific, my mom makes me handmade Advent Calendars, wrapping up little packages with my favorite sweets. There is nothing like starting your day with a rush of sugar 😉
December is usually that time of the year when everyone is rushing, getting gifts and ingredients in the last minute, and also the time of reflection. I’m sure several top reads lists will pop up on several blogs, and I was planning to do the same. But then, I decided I’m going to make a little twist. I’m going to reveal 1 book a day until the 24th (the last one will be a bit different), a book me or Jen loved this year (regardless when it was published) with a little explanation. This way we can highlight as many books as we want without giving ourselves any restraints 😛 And also I think this is a fun thing to do and can give a little more exposure to the books.
Happy reading peeps, keep checking back, I will update this post as the month progresses. We hope you will have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, probably with as many books as you can get your hands on!
