2018 is over and it’s time to look back over the month of December. December was a weird month for me because both my grad semester and fellowship ended so I was on vacation for three weeks, traveled home for Christmas, and prepared to start a new job. I still got some reading in though!

Audiobooks Listened To: 2. Slow audio month for me. I listened to The Refugees and Citizen, both of which were fine. I preferred Refugees.
ARCS Read: 3. Back in the Game, The Continent (original ARC) and 29 Dates.
Favorite Book: Hm, probably Bonfire. I flew through it and really enjoyed it! It was different than I expected, which was actually a good thing this time.
Least Favorite Book: Probably The Continent for content/writing. Racist tropes aside, the writing was super stilted and unrealistic.
January TBR: I’m trying to get ahead for my class reading!
