Monthly Wrap-Up: December 2019

I’m trying something different for 2020 and, instead of doing a bunch of separate posts about the previous month, I’m just doing one big one!

Fun fact! In 2019 as a whole, I read 47,140 pages!

  • BEST OF THE MONTH: 100%, without a doubt, Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? by Caitlin Doughty. This was the exact right mix of funny and informative and I loved it.
  • BEST YA: Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy! I read a bunch of Julie Murphy at the end of 2019 and I loved everything, but Dumplin‘ was definitely my favorite.
  • BEST MG: I’m not into spooky stuff, but Small Spaces by Katherine Arden was just the right amount of spooky for me! (Which makes sense, I guess, since it’s middle grade.) This was so much better than I’d expected.

I’m happy to share that I finished all of my reading challenges with plenty of time to spare!

Monthly Motif is a reading challenge hosted by girlxoxo.

December’s theme was last chance, meaning finally getting to any books that you’ve been putting off for one reason or another. I decided to just go with it and see what library holds came in. I ended up reading:

I finished a total of 17 booksΒ in December, bringing me to a total of 177 books in 2019.

Popsugar hosts a reading challenge every year.
You can find out more information on their website.

I made the executive decision to forgo one of the Popsugar prompts (a reread of a favorite book) because I don’t like rereading things and I’m an adult, so I can do what I want. I did cross off all of the other prompts, though.

I used the Gilmore Girls book list for help with that prompt, because I legitimately had no idea. I hardly ever watch things.

Romanceopoly is a reading challenge hosted by
Under the Covers and Peace Love Books.

I didn’t think I’d be able to do it, but I did it. All of the romanceopoly prompts are checked off! In December, I checked off:

I also made the decision not to do the photo challenges with this one.

I think this will be the last Killing the TBR update for a while since I’m going to pause this challenge for the foreseeable future, but I did finish Make Me Bad and The Boyfriend App, both of which I’ve had for a while.

How did December go for you? Did you meet all of your goals? Let’s talk in the comments!
