December 2021 Reading Wrap Up

In December, I read twenty-five books, some of those were books for quiz writing and others were 2022 releases that I decided to read, review and schedule the post for so I don’t fall behind. As a result, these reviews are not included but the books themselves are. I have also completed all my challenges, and all those will be linked in my year-end round up. In total I read almost 270 books this year, mostly Australian, with about three quarters of those books written by Australian Women Authors.
