Month in Review: December 2018



How is it that we are not only at the end of December already, but also at the end of 2018??? This year has flown by!!! It was a great year, filled with lots of great books, and judging by the books that have already shown up on my doorstep for 2019, it looks like it is going to be another great year of reading coming up! As always, there are way too many books to read and not enough time to get to them all, but I'd rather have a long tbr than always be looking for something that interests me.
