I had high hopes at the beginning of the month that I was going to get through so many books, including some early 2020 ARCs, but I ran into a roadblock and it took me a while to get back on track. In the end I only read five books but three of those were ARCs, so that’s something. I got some really amazing books for Christmas which I can’t wait to share in my book haul post. I also got some amazing book mail from a publisher that I am really excited about. Will be posting about it on IG and Twitter soon. Everyone has been doing decade lists, but I’m over here just tired and ready to turn the page, so don’t expect any of those from me. I did do a statistic-based post which should be coming your way very soon. In January, I am concentrating on taking care of a couple more ARCs and finally getting to some much anticipated reads I have put off.

Favorite Book This Month:
My favorite read this month was Dark and Deepest Red. I always worry that my reviews can never do Anna-Marie McLemore books justice and in the end, I am just hoping to spark enough interest in all of you so you can check out their novels. Each one is a masterpiece in itself. Review for this one coming in the next week or so. Cover linked to Goodreads.
Least Favorite Book This Month:
No book received less than 3 stars.
