Month In Review: December 2015

monthinreviewdec2015

I still can’t believe it’s 2016! Time has flown away and it’s time for a new year and new challenges and goals… But first I’m going to check my progress for the December month. I already knew it was going to be a busy month with the Holiday season and all, and it shows in the numbers below. I managed to finish a total of 13 books, which isn’t too bad but they were quite short reads… Between Holiday preparations and cooking I just didn’t have that much spare time last month. Still, in 2015 I have managed to reach an amount of books and pages read I never thought would be possible, so I’m by no means complaining! 😉

  • Number of books read in December: 13
  • Total number of books read this year: 185
  • Total number of pages read in December: 3.734
  • Total number of pages read this year: 61.483

I’m terribly behind with my reviews with no less than five out of thirteen still pending… The Holiday season was truly busy. Hopefully I will be able to catch up soon! December wasn’t the best month with a few mediocre or even bad reads… Hopefully January will be better!

Time for a final look into my 2015 challenges… I actually managed to finish almost every challenge! The only one I wasn’t able to fully complete was the Bookish Bingo 2015 challenge, with ONE pending square (book published in the last month) to fill in order to have a full bingo. So close!
