Happy New Year! December was a slow reading month for me. I somehow managed to read 6 books. There was just so much going on in my personal life and the holidays that it was hard to stay focused on a book. The beginning of the month started out wonderfully reading-wise but as I got closer to Christmas, it dramatically slowed. But have no fear! There will be a few book reviews coming soon.

Looking Ahead to 2020
Sometimes I struggle writing this portion of the monthly wrap up because I want to give you some sort of idea but also what to have the element of surprise. So what can you look forward to in 2020? Book reviews, of course. There will be more of a variety too. One of my goals for 2020 is to read more of a variety when it comes to different genres though romantic comedies will always be my comfort zone.
I also want to take the time to thank you all for reading my blog. I never imagined that my site would develop the way that it has and it is all because of you. So from the bottom of my heart….THANK YOU.
