I picked up another reading challenge from Goodreads during the month of December and you will see that reflected in my monthly reading screenshot. With that said, how much did I manage to read this month? That would be 44 books 😉. Here is a screenshot of all the books I read:

The reviews for all of those books are either on this blog, will be on this blog, or are mini-reviewed on Goodreads. If you have interest in reading my other reviews you can go to my Goodreads account and check them out.

December 2017 Book Haul

This month is a little different as I am going to add a Santa haul. This year I participated in SantaThing which is orchestrated by the elves over at LibraryThing. It was neat because I was able to pick out books for my secret santa and someone was able to pick out books for me. Here are the books that I received from my secret santa:

SantaThing Haul

I am beyond excited to read The Earl of Brass by Kara Jorgensen! The other books are also fabulous too!!

Now on to the main event, my book haul for December 2017:

December 2017 Book Haul

Not too much there huh, lol, nope my TBR shelf is out of control and I need to do something about it. So this month only a few ARCs and a new horror book to read.

December 2017 TBR Shelf 

December 2017 TBR Shelf

This shelf is so crowded at the moment that I only have space for just a few more books before I have to start getting creative. This is the point that I stop buying books until I can make room on this shelf. So many good books and I have to find time to read them soon!

♥•♥•♥

My only reading plans for January is to get this shelf down to a reasonable level. I am participating in 4 reading challenges by the time January rolls around, so this should not be entirely difficult to manage. As long as they fit the challenge, that’s the sticking point with reading challenges. Well this is it for me this year!

 

With Cheers,

Minx
