December 2018 Wrap-Up

There are so many ideas swirling around my mind for 2018 bookish summaries and write-ups and then others still for 2019 ‘looking ahead’. Unfortunately I’m still clawing my way out of my work backlog that was created by an untimely Christmas illness. Ah well, here’s hoping 2019 will bring far more good health and much blog productivity… and bloghopping!

I’m hoping to get to my “Best of 2018” post next week but realised I could do a quick Dec 2018 wrap-up. Despite being under the weather and dealing with Christmas prep and festivities, I still managed to polish off 9 books in December, a couple of them being wonderful Christmasy reads.

I was a little moodier with my reading in December and didn’t manage to get to all my planned reads. I still have to read You Were Always Mine by Nicole Baart (especially as it’s a NetGalley) and I made Snowday my first 2019 read.

I only managed to post reviews of Merry Inkmas, Lethal Latte and Mr. Miracle so far, but will hopefully get around to posting the others later this month. Lots of reviews planned for this month, in fact, as I’d like to tie up my 2018 outstanding book reviews and then begin the 2019 selections!

How about you? How did you enjoy your year-end reads?

  1. That’s a nice number, Nina! I’d say you did better than me. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The holidays take up so much time, but they’re so lovely. Sorry to hear you were sick though. Happy New Year and good luck with your catch up! โค๐Ÿ’œโค

  2. Actually, for being sick, having a job, home and little boys around the holidays, I’d say you did very well! Those look like some neat, sweet books for the season. My problem is always if I don’t do the review soon as I finish the book, I forget those issues running thru my head at the time. No, I don’t always get them written down, either.

    1. Aww. Thanks Virginia. I do have to remind myself to slow down every so often. The To Do list can often get out of control. I’m hoping to be much better at that this year.
      I hear you on the reviews. Trying to write reviews for a few books I ‘forgot’ about… and it’s hard! Lol
