Christmas is my favorite season and I especially savored it this year as it was baby’s first Christmas. Even if he won’t be able to remember it, I really tried to take each moment as it came and enjoy all of the firsts! Much of what I recall from this past month is baby related, but I did read a handful of books that I enjoyed and wanted to mention.
Today I also want to revisit my list of the books I was anticipating most for 2019 to see which I actually read, what worked, and what didn’t.
Click on through to see everything I reviewed, read, and wrote in December, along with a follow up of how my most anticipated books for 2019 worked for me.
Books I reviewed:
The God Game had an intriguing premise and a chilling conclusion.
Books I read but haven’t reviewed:
Prince Caspian was an intriguing prequel to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
The Wives was compulsively readable but it told a different story than I wanted to read.

What did I think of the books I was highly anticipating this year? Let’s see!
On the stack for next month:
January holds a handful of arcs, more than I usually read this time of year but there are several books expected to be published in early 2020 that I’m excited for! I’ve already started Things in Jars, which is a bit out of my comfort zone but I am enjoying it so far, so we’ll see how that goes. As mentioned above, I have a hold on Sword and Pen from the library, which looks like it should be available within the next couple weeks, and I can’t wait to finally read it! And I’ll be continuing the Chronicles of Narnia with The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. So far this series has been working well with reading a chapter a day, and I hope that keeps working for me with this installment.
What are you reading or planning on reading next?
