* = It’s the 30th December and that’s my current total. Due to timing I’m putting this round up a little earlier than usual and it’s possible I could finish another book before the end of the 31st. If so I’ll include it in my 2017 total in my yearly wrap up, posted tomorrow.

December was a fantastic reading month. 18 books finished and it didn’t even feel like I read a lot or was trying to cram books in. I completed my first proper audiobook and really enjoyed it – in fact it was one of my favourite reads of this month (You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me by Sarra Manning). From there I’ve started to binge on her books and I dare say I’ll be reading a few more in January! I feel as though December was a really good reading month – 6x 5-star reads, a bunch of 4s. No 1s which is always good!

Summer holidays have started here and my kids are on a 5-6 week break from school. I’ve ticked two books off my summer reading list that I created for myself and featured in my last wrap up – Six Of Crows by Leigh Barduo and Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. Both were really good and it feels like as I tick books off, I just end up adding books as now I have to get Ng’s first book! I still have plenty left to read from that list and I’ve also got a lot of really exciting January releases to read, some reviews of which will be up on the blog as early as next Tuesday.

As mentioned, tomorrow I’ll be posting my yearly reading wrap up to have a better look at some of my statistics overall and getting ready for 2018. I’m going to be thinking about challenges over this weekend and whether or not I want to sign up for any of them. I always like a challenge or two to add to my reading but it feels like I’ve done the same ones a lot (and one of them isn’t really a ‘challenge’ so to speak as it covers a huge portion of my reading that I don’t have to actually attempt to do). However I did find a pretty interesting one on Instagram so I might just do that one. My 2018 blog planner is ready to go and I’ve already got quite a few things penciled in. But 2018 just might be my year of winging it.

Hope your reading December was a successful one – did Santa bring you any books?
