I can’t believe it’s the end of the year! Somehow Christmas has been and gone already. The promise of a white Christmas quickly became a pipe dream (as per) and the weather has been rainy and wet for what feels like forever. Definite cosy vibes, however, and my toddler loves puddles so it’s still a win. This post-festive period has been a wonderful balance of family time and also being productive with much-needed jobs around the house. Overall it’s been a lovely, wholesome month.
My reading for December has been on par with last month. I’ve read five books, reviewed four and taken part in one blog tour.

Book of the month
This month my favourite book was… Away with the Penguins. A book where the main character definitely grew on me! A wonderful story and something a little different but equally wholesome. I’d definitely recommend a read, especially through these winter months!
I have quite a few blog tours and reviews to share in January. I feel like it’s always quite a busy month! I’m also going to continue picking from my own shelf as I have been these last few months. Next year I’m going to, besides preorders, see how long I can go without buying any books to help with lessening the tbr, as my shelves are getting a little out of hand! We’ll see how that goes, but I do have a book to read from my 12 challenge on Twitter, which are all ones I currently own. The challenge is 12 friends recommend 12 books to read over 12 months. Currently deliberating my first pick and you’ll find out which one I went for next month…
As always, a huge thank you to the publishers and authors who provided me with a gifted copy of a book in exchange for an honest review. You’ll find their details tagged in each individual blog post, linked above.
Until next time,
