December Wrap Up


December came and went super fast. Honestly, I am glad that it is over. Holidays are always stressful and full of activities in my family. I felt a whirlwind of emotions this holiday season for sure. The worst thing is that one of my friends died in a terrible car accident. So, my emotions have been kind of blah lately.



I did have a lot of fun with my family though. We spent good quality time together which is always important. I got to see some snow in Northern Arizona at our family cabin.

I ended up going to my best friend's house to ring in the new year. It was a lot of fun but I am exhausted from staying up until around 5 am because I was way too energized to sleep. Now, my sleep schedule is all wacky.

Your girl read a bunch this month, like always. I completed eight books!

Books Read:

Favorite Book:
This month was hard to pick my favorite because I had two five star books! However, the winner goes to Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren! I laughed and cried while reading this book. This was the first book that I legitly cried reading it at 3 AM and could not put it down. It's one of my new favorite books of all time. It was completed in one whole sitting.

Biggest Letdown:
This month, I DNF Real Good Man by Meghan March. I was about halfway through it and could not bring myself to continue. I was so bored and could not stand any of the characters. The plot was uneventful and there was a lot of slut-shaming in it that made me pretty mad. I have no idea why this book has a good rating that it does on Goodreads.

Blog Posts Written:
This month, I completed nine blog posts! Not as much as last month. However, I was crazy busy with the holidays and I think this is a good number. 

This doesn't include book blitzes, cover reveals, book tour announcements, wrap-ups, and book reviews.

January releases I am excited for:

   
   
   

Song Of The Month:

My Brother's New Music Video! The Sun Will Wake You Up by Fly Felix.



Tv Show:
I have been catching up on Grey's Anatomy season 15. I feel like I am incredibly behind on this show. 


Movie:
I saw Frozen 2 in the theater's and I am in love. It's so good! You have to go see it.


Products:
I love Tarte Shape Tape Concealer it's one of my absolute favorites. With a gift card that I got for Christmas, I loaded up and splurged on it. It has absolutely amazing coverage. 


I wasn't planning on buying this but the Tutti Frutti - Twinkle Twinkle Liquid Glitter Eyeshadow from Too Faced is the prettiest liquid eyeshadow that I have ever seen. It dries super quickly unlike any other liquid eyeshadow that I have ever tried before. I wish I had all of the shades now. I got the shade Strawberries & Champagne. The coverage is absolutely amazing. I literally wore it all of New Year's Eve and it lasted all day! Unlike so many other glitter eyeshadows. 

Well, there you have it! That was the month of December. How was your month? Did you do anything fun? What were some of the highlights? What books did you read? I would love to know in the comments down below. Let's chat!

xoxo,

    1. That's insane. I love finding books that I can relate to like that. Especially when it's being in the same location as characters. It was way more of an intense read than I expected.

  3. I'm glad you had a wonderful New Years---sounds like fun!! Now I'm really curious about your brother's new music video. What does that mean? I feel like I've read lots of your "get to know me" type posts, but I don't remember reading anything about your brother. :-)

  4. Oh, cool! I wasn't sure if he was actually the person singing or if he was involved in producing the video or something. :-) I'll definitely check him out!

  5. Wow to your brother's talent! Amazing voice. I didn't know about him before and I'm so glad you shared. So sorry to read about your friend--I can't even imagine what you are going through. On the book side of things, Tweet Cute and Echoes Between Us were two of my favorite December books. Tweet Cute was the best of 2019 for me.
