Month in Review: December 2020


 

Well, it's certainly been a year...that's for sure! But the one silver lining is that I read a lot and I read some amazing books. Not only was I fortunate to continue to receive review books all year long, but I still managed to read books off my own shelf...I certainly had the time and this is something that I am going to make a priority moving forward, making sure there is a balance of the two. And I also made some progress with my backlist review books, but not as much as I would have liked, so this is something I need to focus on a little more moving forward. But all in all, this was a great year reading-wise and I'm happy about that.
