Month In Review

A look back at December…

Happy New Year’s Eve! It has been quite the month and quite the year – somehow over in a flash, but also a year I’m glad to put behind me!

December was a good month for reading and I enjoyed putting the bookish advent calendar I created and definitely think that will likely come back next year (assuming I’ve finished my other reading challenges by then). I managed to wrap up the advent books with a few days to spare for mood reading at the end of the year. I do have two more books in progress and maybe I’ll finish one, but we’ll see.

My favorite for the final month of this year was THE EMPIRE OF GOLD by S.A. Chakraborty, a successful series completion and a great read!
