December…oh December. I had a deadline at work for the first and I thought once we hit that date, work would slow down. That did not happen. At all. And I thought the amount of meetings I would attend would go down. Did not happen. At all. So I requested three weeks off over the holidays. That was the light at the end of the tunnel that kept me going until the 18th. The stress definitely affected my reading. It wasn’t until my holiday began that my reading picked up.
Here is what I read in December:
- Truth or Beard by Penny Reid
- Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning
- The Rogue Not Taken by Sarah Maclean
- The Wedding by Julie Garwood
- Saving Grace by Julie Garwood
- Bloodfever by Karen Marie Moning
- Act Like It by Lucy Parker
So I read Truth or Beard at the beginning of the month – I finished it on the 5th. I somewhat started Darkfever on the 16th but would put it down for days at a time. I didn’t pick up a book and finish it until the 24th, with the Rogue Not Taken. That’s quite a lapse between reads for me. So frustrating. I’m hoping it was work stress and holiday busy-ness that affected my reading and that things will go back to normal in the new year. I don’t mean to be a whiner, but reading is important to me so it really threw me off when I couldn’t do it.
So that was December. I’m do a breakdown of the whole year soon.
