Blogmas 2021 Day 1: December Reading Challenge TBR

Let's start this Blogmas off with a classic: the books I want to read this December.

November Reading Corner

Against all odds, Nanowrimo has gone well for me. It's astonishing, considering that I was almost 5000 words behind near the beginning of the month. Now, at the time of writing, I've got less than 1500 words to go. I still haven't decided what I'm going to do in place of One Word reviews and… Continue reading November Reading Corner
