December might be my favorite reading month, because it’s when we do round-ups and wrap-ups at Book Riot, so I don’t have any immediate required work reading I need to do. That means I can spend the month reading backlist or reading ahead for 2018, if I choose. And I have a feeling this is going to be the best December yet!
