December Round Up

I am insanely happy with all of the support from both authors and readers that have decided to join me here on my blog in the last month, I cannot thank you enough for the support. As this blog was only created in November, and it wasn’t until December that I decided to make it exclusively about books, this will be the first round up post that I have made.

So, what will be included in these posts? Well, a few things.

1. A picture of my book haul for the month, as well as a little description about where each book came from (whether it was a self purchase, a competition win, or a gift).

2. A breakdown of all the ARCs that I’ve read but have not yet posted reviews for.

3. A look back at the books I’ve read during the month.

4. A reminder of any giveaways running.

So, without further ado, let’s get started!
