My December

decemberI like to review what I’ve done in the previous month in the form of these posts. You can view my November post here.

Today is the last day of 2014 and I feel like this year has been a very good one. In May, I started this blog. In September, we got our baby boy. Now he’s almost four months old and I cannot express how wonderful our time together has been, though it hasn’t always been easy, of course. I can only wish that 2015 will be as wonderful.

This month, I binge-read some romance, so you can expect to see more fluff on the blog in January! I also started thinking about my reading for 2015 and I hope some things will change around here.

The books I got:

Not that many, considering it’s December. People almost never give me books as gifts because they never know what I’ve read and what I haven’t. And they say I buy loads of books anyway so they always get me other stuff!

  • Ticker by Lisa Mantchev (Netgalley; review coming soon!)
  • If the Viscount Falls by Sabrina Jeffries (Netgalley)
  • Stardust by Neil Gaiman (present, paperback)
  • Angelfall by Susan Ee (purchased, e-book; review coming soon!)

How was your December? Did you enjoy the holidays? 

What was the best book you read in December/2014?

I wish you all a very happy New Year! How are you celebrating?

  • It sounds like 2014 was a wonderful year. Belated congratulations on the birth of your son! :)

    I had no idea how beautiful Slovenia was until I saw some of the photos you posted…seriously gorgeous. It looks like something out of a period drama. Ahh yes, I feel you on books as gifts. People never even try to get me books anymore because they’ve got no idea what I’ve already read; my relatives used to get me classic novels as gifts but since I’ve almost completed an English degree that has become equally fraught haha. I’m also reading Ticker and I gotta say it’s a bit disappointing so far!

      Gah I KNOW, I wrote a 2/5-star review of Ticker yesterday. Not cool, the cover promises so much more! :) (I always judge a book by its cover, I can’t help it.)
      Slovenia is a little gem, much underrated, but it has been getting more and more tourist attention in the recent years. It’s perfect for a 3-5 day holiday if you’re already visiting this part of Europe, I’d say, or for a weekend getaway.
