Hi everyone! So it’s December already, huh?! I cannot believe we’re almost to the end of another year already! And now that it’s December my blog is 6 months old! I started out on 5th June so in 2 days time my baby is half a year old! Yay! I have been soooo busy with life in general recently that I never got anything planned to celebrate but I am going to have a giveaway really soon so keep a look out for it 🙂
What happened in November:
Well… not a lot actually! I didn’t read all of the books that I wanted to read so I still need to get to those, but I did read a couple that weren’t scheduled for November that I really enjoyed. Look out for my review of I Love You to Death by Natalie Ward coming in December.
I didn’t end up taking part in the Book Twirps’ read-along for Alice in Zombieland. I just had so much going on that I never got around to picking it up again after the first couple of pages I read. Hoping to read it in the new year after the mad Christmas rush that I am experiencing right now. It’s hard work preparing for Christmas with 3 excited kids!
I stacked my shelves with an absolute ton of books in November but only managed one Stacking the Shelves post to show you some of them. Here’s that post for a reminder … STS 11 November.
I read 5 books for the Series Catch-Up challenge. Some reviews have been posted, some still to come.
Re-read The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay which was picked up by Simon & Schuster (Atria) in November. So happy about this! Go read it if you haven’t! So many readers are just discovering TSoT since S&S picked it up and that makes me sooooo happy!
Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick but put it to one side because it didn’t grab me like the others did. I’m hoping to try again with it this month.

What’s Happening in December:
I have a few tour stops this month. Today – 3rd December – I have a review and giveaway stop for Derailed by Alyssa Rose Ivy. Tomorrow – 4th December – I have a review and giveaway for Hollywood Holiday by Sasha Summers. On 12th December I have a guest post and review for Troubles and Treats by Tara Sivec. And on 19th December I have a review of A Song for Julia and an interview with the author Charles Sheehan Miles. Be sure to stop by and check them all out 🙂
I’m still working through my series books for the Series Catch-Up challenge set by Brittany at The Book Addict’s Guide. If you’d like to sign up you’ll find all the details here.
I’m 11 books behind on my 2012 Goodreads challenge as of today. I really want to get to the target so I am pulling out all the stops to achieve it! If I read all of the books on my list for December and finish the couple that I have started I should be good! Wish me luck 🙂 and you can check my progress on Goodreads.
To read :
I also want to finish up reading Hot Ticket by Olivia Cunning. I LOVE her books!
And finally, I want to read a few Christmassy books so I have picked out A Toast to the Good Times by Steph Campbell and Liz Reinhardt, Last Chance Christmas by Hope Ramsey and A Merry Little Christmas by Julia Williams.
