December was a really great month for bookish gifts and review copies but it’s meant that my TBR pile is now seriously out of control. I have so many books I’m looking forward to reading in 2020 so I really want to cut down on my book buying in 2020.

    I feel like my December reading suffered a bit from all the Christmas preparation, end of the year blog posts, etc. I think I still did decently, but 13 books! Well done! 🙂

    Happy New Year! ✨

      Thank you! My reading has suffered a bit over the past two months due to ill health but I’m hoping January is going to be more productive for me. 😊
