Month in Review: December 2017

**Quick note: I've been trying to find a good time to add in my December wrap-up, but because everything has been so busy lately I haven't had much of a chance until now. I was originally planning on posting the second part of my end of year survey and I had it all nice and ready... and somehow it didn't save!? So after minor despair on my end, I have postponed it until I have the time to redo it all because it took quite a while.

Month in Review:
December 2017

And just like that, December is gone and January is here to welcome us! I'll be completely honest--all the hype around New Year's and resolutions and fresh starts has always made me anxious. It's such an abrupt switch from the friendly holidays and back into regular everyday life. I like to comfort myself with books until all of my weird feelings subside (if they do). Holiday/New Year's digression aside, here is my usual monthly wrap-up of everything I did on the blog in December! I also managed to read eleven books, which I'm pretty happy about considering all of the distractions that the month of December brings.

  1. Happy New Year! I've been curious about City of Brass, and Bird Box looks freaky but good. I might read that one this year actually.
