Things I Posted:
December is always a good month. Christmas is my favorite holiday, and it is also my birthday month! The month started out really fun. I was part of a local community theatre production as a member of the chorus. It was a fun original musical called Scheherazade, based on the Arabian folk tale. It has kind of poked my dormant theatre nerd heart, and I might look into doing more community theatre in the new year.
I also went to the movies with friends several times, had book club, met friends for dinner, and had my monthly tea party (which was also a mini birthday party for me. My birthday is December 29th, so it is always hard to celebrate it with friends because everyone is usually out of town or busy with family).
We were not traveling for Christmas this year, since we travelled over Thanksgiving. We had a pretty chill week here at my house. My in-laws came over on Christmas evening, and other than that I have been watching my husband play Red Dead Redemption II and reading. It has been pretty great 🙂
My January TBR Pile:

I am participating in Kathy’s (over at Books & Munches) Devour Your TBR challenge. January is January Jam Jar, where we read the books we wish we had gotten to in 2018 and pull them out of a jar for the order. I’m excited to join in on the fun this year. If you are interested in learning more about this year-long challenge, go check out the Goodread’s group, or Kathy’s post about it here.
How many books did you read this month? Have you read any of the books I read? What about the books on my TBR for January? Let me know down in the comments!
Love and happy reading,
