It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? | December in Review #monthinreview #weeklyrecap

It’s New Years Eve! 🎉🎉🎉

How do you celebrate where you are? We will be home with the kids and if we stay up until midnight it will be a miracle! I’m thinking an epic Monopoly game might be just the thing. Plus, we might start a new puzzle. Aren’t we exciting?

For dinner we’re having shrimp and ribeye and potatoes and asparagus! Mmmm. Tomorrow I’ll get up early to watch the Rose Parade!

Check back tomorrow for the First Book of The Year post – hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. (hint: it’s one of my PopSugar Reader Challenge books)

Last Week:

Check out 7️⃣ posts from last week!

I finished three books (links to my review) last week: Our Prince of Scribes edited by Nicole Seitz which will make all my lists for favorites of 2019, Watching You by Lisa Jewell which was brilliant and creepy and Verity by Colleen Hoover which was 250 pages of jaw-dropping suspense.

We also finished Season Three of Travelers on Netflix and now we don’t know what to do without them 😞. Fingers crossed they get a Season 4.

Blog Notes:

We are starting to get a few followers on Pinterest and I’ve been going back to old review posts and pinning them as well.

I’m also pretty excited about my amazon affiliate earnings:

Month In Review:

December was a great month for blog posts. 34 Posts and 5 reviews. A big part of this month’s content was due to joining #AMonthofFaves (hosted by Traveling with T, Estellas Revenge and Girl xoxo).

We LOVED the topics and hope they do it again next year! HINT HINT!
