December Confessions

Can you believe the holiday season is almost over and tonight is New Year's Eve? I can't! I feel like I just put up the tree and finished wrapping gifts. It really does fly by. I did a lot of baking this Christmas and I'm pretty sure I ate my weight in cookies and chocolate. I'm looking forward to getting back into my health kick this coming month.  I hope everyone had a great holiday and I hope 2013 is as awesome as 2012 was. Happy 2013, everyone!

Books Read in December:
1.  Just One Day by Gayle Forman - 5 stars
2.  The Nutcracker by E.T.A Hoffman illustrated by Maurice Sendack - 4 stars
3.  The Selection by Kiera Cass - 4 stars
4.  Cinders & Sapphires by Leila Rasheed - 3 stars (Review to come)
5.  Shine (Shade #3) by Jeri Smith-Ready - 4 stars (Review to come)
6.  The Tragedy Paper by Elizabeth LaBan - 4 stars (Review to come)

Didn't Finish:
The Farm by Emily McKay (I'll be hosting a giveaway soon!)

December Top Five:
1) Favorite Book: Just One Day by Gayle Forman - LOVE, LOVE this book! I wouldn't expect anything less from Gayle Forman.

2)  Biggest Disappointment: Cinders & Sapphires by Leila Rasheed- I thought it was mildly entertaining, but ultimately, it fell flat for me.

3)  Biggest Surprise: The Selection by Kiera Cass- I have read so many mixed reviews for this book, but was pleasantly surprised by how entertained I was. Maybe it's because I am a secret die hard fan of The Bachelor...So embarrassing.  

4) Favorite Post: 2012 End of Year Book Survey

5) Favorite Part of December: Baby D's first Christmas was a blast!

Happy New Year!


  1. Happy New Year!

    I am looking forward to reading Just One Day. I've only heard positive things about it so far. Sorry that Cinders and Sapphires was a disappointment. I liked it (though it had flaws and isn't as good as the Luxe series).

    This time of year always goes so quickly. I'm a little sad that it is over but now I hope I can eat healthy again too. I definitely overdid it with the sweets!

  2. So glad you loved JUST ONE DAY! Makes me even more eager to finish my copy.

    Hope you and your family had a lovely Christmas and New Year's :)
