Average: 3.08, which is actually quite good given how many terrible books I apparently read this month.


Reviews Written/Published: 19, which is not great, but not terrible given the month.


So this is super late, and my yearly round-up is going to be later. December was actually a decent month for me, though I didn't get as much reading or listening done as I'd hoped. Lots of other stuff going on. ;) I had my last five-star book of the year, which was lovely and unexpected and made up for the large number of questionable books I finished.


How did everyone else's December go? Anyone else end up weirdly busy and lose a week or two there?
