This has probably been my slowest reading month for a while. Covid has come much closer to home and I think it just made it more difficult for me to switch off with reading as I normally would, and it has certainly made it harder for me to focus on writing reviews. Instead, I’ve been switching off with watching Christmas movies!
My younger sister was hospitalised after testing positive and was diagnosed with double pneumonia. She was in hospital for a few days but, thankfully, is well on the mend although she has been told to recuperate for 6-8 weeks. I’m sure, like a lot of people, I’m just desperate to visit family and give hugs! We’ve also had more cases in school with a Year Group having to isolate. This term has been intense in work, so I’m really looking forward to being able to switch off over Christmas.
I’ve only bought one book this month (Winterling for the Middle Grade Marvels Book Club December read), but there’s a good reason. My wonderful husband has bought me all the books I’ve mentioned as part of my Christmas present. He insists, and who am I to argue? 🙂
I took part in Believathon III but didn’t manage to finish it. I read 8 of the 13 books I’d intended to. I definitely still want to read the others and am just about to start one which was on my list.
Books I’ve read:
I’ve read 11 books this month which includes 6 physical books, 4 e-books and 1 audiobook.
These are books I have either been sent by the author in exchange for an honest review, or books which I’ve been approved to read on NetGalley. I’ve posted my review for A Thousand Questions and will post my review The Lost Child’s Quest on Friday as part of their Blog Tours. I will post my reviews for The Valley of Lost Secrets and The Weather Weaver closer to their publication dates – just need to write them first!
My Feedback Ratio is currently at 89%. This month I’ve requested and been approved to read two books which I’m really looking forward to.
Books sent for review:
I always feel incredibly lucky if I get sent books by Publishers to read prior to publication. I’ve been sent four I’m really looking forward to reading over Christmas.
Have you read any of these? What has been your favourite book this month?
