It's a Wrap - End of the Month Round Up

The last monthly wrap up of the year for 2013!  Didn't that fly by?  My next post will be the annual look over the past 12 months.  I got through a lot of books this month despite Christmas in the middle of it all.  Many of these books were short and festive so it wasn't an difficult task.

I was very pleased to shine the spotlight on Author Nicky Wells this month.

I hosted a PreLoved give-away for Christmas and was pleased to post three books off to the three winners in time for Christmas.

I posted about all the books that came into my home and was excited to have won 6 books, picked up 8 freebies, received 2 gifted, 3 for review and one on loan.

What to expect in January?
A review of my current read A Patchwork Planet - Anne Tyler for book group.  More reviews including Romancing the Soul - Sarah Tranter for Choc Lit and a spotlight on Author Jamie Baywood.

Did Christmas get in the way of your reading?
