December 2019 Wrap Up

Posted January 3, 2020 by Carole in Monthly Wrap-Up / 22 Comments

December 2019
December always seems to a very busy month.  There is just so much to do and never enough time to do it.  We had our first snowstorm of the season.  I am not a fan of snow but my boss sent us home mid-morning and I am a big fan of leaving work early.

My daughter came home from college about halfway through the month.  I have enjoyed having her home but she does seem a bit stir crazy at the moment.  My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary this month.  We attended 4 separate family gatherings during the month to celebrate the holiday and a birthday.

I am linking this post to the Monthly Wrap-Up at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

  1. I love the: I am not a fan of snow but I am a big fan of leaving early part of the wrap up! Same here, I hate snow but love getting a surprise snow day off :p Yay for finishing the year with so many books and here's to a great 2020 year ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I think you've done great with your reading considering all the stress and upheaval you've had with all the college visits and Mr Carole's job and a new puppy! We haven't had any snow yet-I like it as long as I'm indoors and don't need to go out in it as I have no sense of balance!

  3. Wow you read a lot despite having a busy month! I'm a fan of leaving work early, too, lol!

    You know I loved Regretting You as well. The Christmas Pact was a lot of fun, too. I'm looking forward to picking up A Murderous Relation. Glad to hear you loved it!

  4. Cheers to leaving work early!! We had an early release due to snow one day in December as well. Another day I ended up working from home because it was wicked icy! Happy 20th anniversary!! That is amazing!! <3

  5. Happy Anniversary, Carole! It sounds like you had a nice December. I have never lived anywhere where it snows. I am not a fan of the cold though, especially ice, and so I imagine I wouldn't like it much.

    An Easy Death is one of my poll options for this month's TBR List poll. I can't wait to read your thoughts on it. I am so glad you are enjoying the Chloe Neill's books!

    I hope you have a great January, Carole!

  6. Happy anniversary!! And happy New Year too. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope yours is getting off to an awesome start.

    Murderous Relation looks so good!

  7. What a wonderful month of reads. I see some familiar books here but I'm not surprised because I think our eclectic reading tastes are very similar.

  8. I think that's a great month of reading with all the other activities. I find I'm listening more than reading when I am so busy.
