DECEMBER 2021 WRAP-UP
Another great reading month to end the year!
In 2022, I plan to focus almost exclusively on my TBRs, and I started to do that a bit in December, with some very enjoyable titles.
Lots of things on the blog as well:
- The recap of my Hercule Poirot Project
- The recap of the Books in Translation Challenge
- I joined a new to me meme: Friday Face Off, focusing on book covers
- And for 2022, I posted my TBR for the Japanese Literature Challenge (January-March)
- And my TRB for Bout of Books (January 3-9)
And I have tried writing at least a few words after most of the books I read – definitely a trend I want to follow in 2022!
