December. The month of festivities. Christmas creeping closer, the streets bustling more as people hurriedly buy gifts for others. Everything is suddenly strung with lights and tinsel, lighting the world up for the final month of the year. There’s a happy atmosphere surrounding the air, gently concealing the stress levels Christmas can bring.
December brings along the Christmas break. A break from work, a break from college, a break to recover from the year. A break…to READ.
Okayy, that’s obviously not the universal reason for the Christmas/End of Year break but it sure as hell is MINE.
So let’s see what December brought!
There’s also a video version of this post if you’d like the see, combined with my January TBR! Click here to see! (though I forgot to mention one of the books – doh!)

Since it’s December, I thought I’d finish off at least just one more series before the end of the year and get that little last boost towards my 2016 resolution to finish some of the series I’d started.
And once again, that feeling seems to have hit where I’m going off SO many series/books this year. If you saw my reviews for the previous two books, you’ll know they have quite generous ratings. This one…well…

I was considering not doing this haul. I mean, two of the books I was sent for review and have probably never been heard of. Four of them are classics. And only one is popular YA. So I didn’t think anyone would be interested.
But then I told myself “Stop being ridiculous. I’m excited about having these books, so I’ll share it. I’m not here just to talk about the ‘popular’ books – I’m here for all books.”
So here I am. With probably the most random assortment of books I’ve ever gotten.
Also I apologise in advance for the dodgy lighting in these photos. I had to improvise with …with…unnatural yellow lighting *GASPS* THE HORROR!
Here are the books I got in the month of August!
