Weekly Wrap-Up (December 23)

Hear ye, hear ye! (I don’t know, just go with it)

This will be my final wrap-up of the year. That’s right, I’m taking a wee break. Considering the past few weeks, I doubt many will notice a difference but I figured a fair warning was the least I could do. I am determined to get a head start on my January reading schedule. Which would quite frankly be going a heck of a lot better if I didn’t accidentally read from my February schedule instead ๐Ÿ™„

I won’t be disappearing completely. I’ll still be around sharing your posts, popping up on social media from time to time. But most of all, I shall be reading and spreading the Christmas germs. Cheer! I meant cheer! ๐Ÿคง

Yes, yes, blah blah, Eva, have you been reading lately though? The answer to that burning question is yes. But not that much. As you will see below, bearing in mind my last wrap-up was on December 2nd. Oops.


Bit sad, isn’t it? One of those took me almost two weeks to read and it wasn’t even a bad one.


Looks like someone is collecting some classics.


And only one of those is for a blog tour! Go me!

I’m not doing a round-up of my posts from these past few weeks and since I’m taking a blogging break, there’s nothing to look forward to either ๐Ÿ˜„

Normal service will resume on January 2nd, when I will be sharing some of my most anticipated books of 2019.

In the meantime, all that’s left for me to do is to say thank you! Bookish and blogging wise, it’s been an absolutely fantastic year and a lot of that is down to you, dear readers and fellow bloggers. You’re a brilliant lot! I have made some new friends and I’ve grown closer to some older (not a reference to age) friends. I’ve been interviewed, was nominated for a blogger award and (in case you missed it) got my 200 reviews badge from Netgalley. I completed the 20 Books of Summer Challenge, desperately battled my blog tour addiction (and failed miserably) while dealing with a reading mojo that was up and down like a yo-yo. But through it all, there was you. And you. And even you! With support, with reading recommendations, with tips and more importantly, with laughter. So, THANK YOU! โค๏ธ

I wish you all the most wonderful Christmas, a fabulous 2019 and as always, lots of happy reading! xx

    Oh the dollmaker looks very intriguing but I’ve already requested way too much on Netgalley lately (I only had 2 books and now I have more than I really feel comfortable with). Merry Christmas!!

      I have the same problem. I used to have a limit of 5 on the shelf. That turned into 10. Now I’m not counting anymore but as long as my approval rating stays in the 90% range, I don’t care ๐Ÿ˜‰

        How many books can you have then you think to stay on such a score? 10 then? Maybe itโ€™s better that I donโ€™t know ๐Ÿ˜‚

          Iโ€™m currently at 17. The more you review, the slower the approval rating drops ๐Ÿ˜„

    Ah, that’s sweet. Hope you get to enjoy your break and not cook, clean, and prep the entire time. Looking forward to seeing your start up next year. Have a great Christmas and safe and sane New Year’s Eve.

      Of course we do! We had three coughers and sneezers at the table but after a few glasses of wine, nobody noticed. Or cared. ๐Ÿคฃ

    Donโ€™t be too hard on yourself, youโ€™re doing exceedingly better than I am. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I really have to stick to my reading schedule. I tend to get distracted by other books Iโ€™m anxious to read. And then I went ahead and got plagued with various ailments and now my reading vibes and schedule are all messed up!! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Oh well, some things we canโ€™t control. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

    Enjoy your break. ๐Ÿ˜Š
