December 2020 Wrap-Up/TBR Update

December 2020 TBR

Honestly…I don’t even know if I want to make a TBR for this month because I haven’t really been following them, but here we are.

And we’ll see what else I get to. I’ve been so bad at doing ARCs lately so I’ve got quite a few of those piled up…

What are you guys reading this month? Let me know in the comments!

Tis the Season | December TBR

December is always hit or miss, right? Maybe I won’t be able to read much because of the holidays, traveling, etc. But then again, maybe with the holidays I’ll be able to pawn my baby off on family members and get some serious reading done without interruptions? Wishful thinking I’m sure.

As you might be able to tell, December is also my last ditch effort to complete my year long reading goals. I’ve done alright so far, but still have a few things to check off the list…

December Wrap-Up/January TBR

Wrap-Up & TBR

December

This month was so slow for me with finishing up school, Christmas, travelling, etc. Luckily I was still able to read enough to meet my Goodreads goal, but just barely. I look forward to next month when I have fewer demands on my time and am able to just relax and read!
