I'm so glad November is over and I wish I could look forward to next year but I have a feeling the next four years are going to be soul crushing. I had a bit of a reading slump but I do think I had higher quality reads this month. Thanks to the 12 Tasks of the Festive Season challenge, I ended up writing up at least some thoughts on books I normally would probably just rate.
December is my Romancies Awards so I won't be doing a Reading Roundup for the month. You get the best of the year instead :)
Links are to my review or the book page if I didn't write one, the 12 Tasks of Festive Season reads are in italics.

I had higher rated books this month but 15 is a fairly low number for me, the election had me floundering a bit and reading took a backseat. December is such a busy month for me and I tend to do re-reads, but I also want to make my reading goal for the year and am 5 books behind. I'm going to try and kick it into gear!
