Good Morning Everyone,

In December I was able to finish 20 books. I am not sure how I was able to do this because I felt like I was just running around non-stop.  I guess reading is what truly kept me sane this month.  If I wrote a review for the book I have a link below if you are interested.  Now let’s jump into the books that I read in December.

Wrap Up

September 2019 Wrap-up

Monthly Wrapup

Good Morning Everyone,

In September I was able to finish 7 books.  I was in a slump for almost 2 weeks due to one of the books I DNF’d.  During that time I began a huge unhaul of my shelves.  I pulled off each book and read the synopsis and if I wasn’t sure I looked up some reviews.  In the end, I pulled 190 books from my shelves. The purging of series that I will never pick up again is due to realizing that I just don’t have the space for that and was lead by that DNF’d book.
