December 2016 Recap

Well, December just seemed to fly by! I had a couple weeks in a row of posting something every weekday, which is something that hasn’t happened in  VERY long time (lots of memes and tags, but I enjoyed them!). My Christmas spirit has lasted all throughout the holiday which is another thing that hasn’t happened in awhile. I see a lot of people say 2016 was the worst thing ever, but for me I didn’t think it was any worse than any other year. Below is my small Christmas Book Haul – I got my 3 favorite books of the year and a couple of B&N gift cards.

I can’t decide yet if I want to post a 2016 Recap or not, so in the event I don’t post it there, be sure to check out my Year in Books from Good Reads (and feel free to leave me a link to yours – I love these lists!).

People sit around on their phones, but when I pull out a book, I'm "antisocial":

Looking Forward to January:

I’m excited for By Your Side by Kasie West and On Second Thought by Kristan Higgins. Both their books are always so cute and they will be the perfect pick me up while we’re in the middle of Ohio’s winter. Other than that, I have a couple reviews already drafted so I’ll hopefully start the new year of blogging on a high note.

  1. Great month! I agree…it wasn’t any worse than any other year for me. I don’t get heavily invested in politics and I think that’s where everyone really struggled whereas I try to remain oblivious. Probably not the best approach but it saves me the stress!
    I’m feeling an urge to buy books coming on. But that would require me leaving the house…

    • Thanks! Yeah staying oblivious is a pretty solid coping method as far as I’m concerned. I stay buy books online so you don’t have to leave the house! I go a couple of B&N gift cards for Christmas so I’m excited to download some Nook books! I have a lot of library books I need to get through first, though.

  2. Your end of the year posts are always so much fun to read. You had a busy December! I look forward to hearing what you think of BY YOUR SIDE and ON SECOND THOUGHT. I’ve been toying with getting them.
