December Rewind

I've fallen a bit behind on blogging, unfortunately, but I'm hoping to get all that back in gear. I did read a good chunk of books this month though, which is good--and also my problem. I've spent less time blogging and scrolling through Instagram and watching TV (I'm behind on like every show) because I've chosen to spend more time reading instead. Which isn't a bad thing. I just need to work on balance (especially if I want to do all this once I find a damn job).

Books Read

Frostblood by Elly Blake
Ice by Sarah Beth Durst
Girl Out of Water by Laura Silverman

The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon


Easy by Tammara Webber: I liked it.
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne: Oh my gosh this book I CANNOT EVEN.
After You by Jojo Moyes: It's very different from its predecessor, but I liked it.
Frostblood by Elly Blake: This was Not Good.

Book of the Month

This really isn't fair to the rest of the books I read in December because there's really no competition against the excellence that is The Hating Game.

Book Haul

(Book haul video to come!)
With goodies from Santa and some books I bought myself even though I probably shouldn't have.


As the blog prepared for the end of the year, I shared ten books I'm excited to read in the first half of 2017 and waited on a very bookish book.

I talked about The Broccoli Book (it's a thing, okay) and discussed the curse of being a mood reader.

For the holidays the blog was all about some favorite tunes (that are also, in fact, bookish): "Baby, It's Cold Outside," "All I Want for Christmas is You," and "Jingle Bells."

Currently Reading

Thanks to Sarah Beth Durst's Ice I may now be slightly obsessed with East of the Sun and West of the Moon retellings, so I'm currently reading another one of those: East by Edith Pattou. I'd really like to get started on The Secret History since it will take me the entire to read, but we'll see. Francesca Zappia's Eliza and Her Monsters--aka one of my most anticipated 2017 releases--is on my Kindle and I'd love to get to that soon, buuut Susan Dennard and Alexandra Bracken will be here soon for their book tour and I'd least like to get Passenger read by then. There is, of course, on conquering deciding factor in all of this: my mood. Damn that mood reading bitch.

Currently Listening To

I've been listening to songs all over the place, but this was probably on repeat the most in December (also can we talk about how good Pentatonix's version of "Hallelujah" is?).

Did you have a lovely holiday season filled with lots of books?
