As I anticipated, December was a slow month for me. I didn’t read that many books. It was my birthday, Christmas, and a lot of school work.
It’s time for another monthly wrap-up. I am a little bit late. I wanted to finish all my reviews before I did this. Plus, it’s been a crazy week.
It’s time for a Wrap-up post. I didn’t write it right the the end of the month because I had to write one more review, and also because it’s been a dark and sad weekend for me.
