What I’ve Read – December 2019

Can you believe we’re at the end of 2019 already?

Picture books featured highly in my December reading. My kids gave me My Pet Star by Corrinne Averiss & Rosalind Beardshaw and Ten Minutes to Bed Little Unicorn by Rhiannon Fielding & Chris Chatterton for Christmas. They know that picture books always make an awesome present for their Mum.

I also read The Very Super Bear by Nick Bland. This was a present for my three-year-old nephew who loves superheroes and ninjas. He also loves this series of books.

Even though I didn’t do much long driving during December, I still listened to two audio books. I’ve found these are helpful when doing housework! I listened to Pennies for Hitler by Jackie French and Christmas Crumble by MC Beaton.

I also finished one novel during December, How to Be Second Best by Jessica Dettmann. This has been on my TBR shelf for a while. I managed to finish this on December 31. I was determined to finish it before the New Year.

This brings my total on GoodReads to 58 books when I had set a goal of reading 50 books. There are a few books that aren’t listed on GoodReads that I read during the year too, so my total is over 60 books.

How did you go in December, as well as in 2019?
