Reading Wrap-Up: December Reads

December reads? December rereads, more like. Six of the 10 books I read were books I’ve read before … in some cases multiple times. The holiday season is a time for nostalgia, apparently. December reads The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #5) by Rick Riordan This completed my 2017 rereading of the Percy… Continue reading Reading Wrap-Up: December Reads

It’s been a giant, hungry, roaring, why-did-you-wake-me-up-from-my-hibernation bear of a week. All this is to say, reading time has been scarce.
