This month was insane. Honestly reading was the last thing on my mind throughout December. Most of my time was spent with my family and organising my life so there really wasn’t that much of an opportunity to pick up many books. I am actually surprised by how many books I did end up reading and everything was a little darker in tone than what I was planning on reading so there you go. I had a pretty great reading year and hopefully 2021 will be even better!!

I’ve had a great weekend reading a lot of smutty books! I managed to complete three out of the five books that I had on my TBR but unfortunately I didn’t manage to get to the group book.
The books I read during the Smutathon were:
A Whisper in the Dark by K.J. Sutton
Pretty Little Savage by Lucy Smoke
Famine by Laura Thalassa
This month I fell into a little bit of a reading slump. I don’t know I just wasn’t all that interested in picking up any books and wasn’t feeling inspired to read. I am definitely happy with what I was able to get to and I have high hopes still for December!

Definitely going to count this round of the Tome Topple Readathon a success! I was able to complete 1 book during the two weeks that had over 500 pages! I definitely had hoped that I would be able to read more but I’ve had a busy couple of weeks and alas was unable to commit enough time to complete any more tomes. But like I said in my TBR even if I only read one of these books it would still count as a success and this book I had been meaning to read for AGES now so I am happy!
The book I completed for the Tome Topple is:
The Toll by Neal Shusterman
Didn’t read as much as I was planning to this month. It was a little stressful and I had no motivation to read for a good chunk of the month so I am pleased with what I was able to finish. I was able to get to three of my TBR vets though so I am going to count this month as a success!
