December 2021 Wrap Up

Hello hello and welcome or welcome back to my little bookish corner of the internet. New year, so new wrap up theme! I almost worried more about that than how many books I was reading in the month, and on reflection, that’s possibly because this month somehow ended up being one of my biggest reading months of 2021. I’m still not sure why or how.

However, the fact that it was meant that I ended up completely going absurdly beyond my original reading target of for the year, and I’m so very happy with how things ended up. I’ll be talking about this a bit more in a different post, but I am really proud of how things finished up. With the last few months being how they have been, it finished off the year in a cheerful way, and although there’s no prize or award for it, mentally it feels good.
