December involved a lot of wrapping things up, getting ready for 2019 and generally trying not to lose focus. I finished my contract and packed up my desk etc and ended my 15 months with them with a Christmas party!
I can honestly say I haven’t done much reading this month with everything that’s going on. But let’s see what I released this month!
I don’t think 7 reviews, 2 discussions and weekly wrap up posts for the Reindeer Readathon is too bad!
I can’t believe I’m saying this but I need to make this one my fav. It captured me in a way I wasn’t expecting, was funny, serious, really showed me how dangerous this was. And just generally opened my eyes to cave diving.
Seriously, if you haven’t grabbed a copy of this you really need to! If you’re not sure why you should read a biographical style book, go and read my review and you’ll see why you just have to read this.
My Least Fav
I don’t think it’s Elaine’s fault, or the books fault, that this one is here. If the blurb had had sold this to me as a friendship book with lots of characters to follow I would’ve been prepared for the style it’s written in.
Single all the Way felt like it had too many characters points of view, it wasn’t a rom com like the blurb suggested and I think coming into this series part way through didn’t help matters for me.
I’d suggest starting at the start of the series if you’re interested in giving this one a go.
I’m going to leave this wrap up here since I’m going to be doing a full yr in review on Wednesday, and then the plan for 2020 and what you can expect on Friday.

December hasn’t been my best reading month either. Good luck at your new job!
I feel like Christmas just overruns us when it comes to reading. If you tune in later in the week you’ll hear about my next moves job wise 😳
I just read that one of the Thai soldiers that assisted with the rescue died as a result of an injury/infection he sustained during it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about the book.
I heard that too! So sad! They did an amazing job and so many of the people involved had no prior experience cave diving but just wanted to help.
Looks like December was pretty decent nonetheless!
Like mostly every month, I finished two books in December — so that’s not too bad either ahah, that’s in my normal range.
Congrats for finishing this chapter of your life work-wise, and Goodluck for the next one! I hope you had fun to the Christmas Party with that gang for one last time xx
Yes I had a great final Christmas party with them. Even though it was 40 degrees Celsius I managed to stay cool and avoid heat stroke.
I totally get only finishing 2 books in December considering how busy it is with Christmas, end of the yr etc
