December Wrap-Up


December Wrap-Up

Oh, December, that month when I make all the plans to read everything before the end of the year – and I end up reading a total of 2 books. I really enjoyed every moment of the festive season with my son so I don’t regret that time spent at all. Afterward, I spent a lot of time panicking planning for the new year so again I didn’t get a lot of reading done. Hopefully, I can start off the year strong, both personally and in regards to reading.

Ever The Brave by Erin Summerill (ARC) ★★★★ 
A great improvement from the first book! The author took the story in a great direction and set up for a good spin-off with characters I really grew to love.

The Shadow Queen by C J Redwine (Overdrive) – 3.5 Stars
This had all the ingredients of a 5-star book for me but they didn’t come together. It felt a bit cheesy to me at times and I didn’t enjoy the way the author wrote the romance or the actions scenes. (And that made up the majority of the book) So this was a miss for me. 

Recently Added To My Shelves:

This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills 

After reading Foolish Hearts I knew I had to order everything by Emma Mills. I can’t wait to see if I enjoy them as much!

I had a really good holiday season with my son, who understood Christmas (sort of) for the first time. I didn’t spend a lot of time reading but I am using my week off in January to do a lot of that before I have to start my new semester. I did a lot of reflecting on my life and reading in 2017 and made some new goals. (Which I’ll talk about more in another post) I know that I want to read a lot more in 2018 but I also want to be a lot more selective about what I read. I read some new all-time favorites this year but overall it wasn’t a great reading year and I think that’s because I didn’t have a lot of direction when I was choosing books.


What are your goals/resolutions for reading in 2018? Let me know down in the comments and let’s discuss!

  1. Hey! Don’t beat yourself up for not reading as many titles in December. The holidays are always a pretty busy time. I’m rarely productive as well. But anyway. My focus for 2018 is really just personal growth, taking care of myself, and putting more effort in current and future relationships.
    Have a great year ahead!
