Monthly Round-Up! August – December 2021

Monthly Round-up, linking everything that has happened in the last month, posted on the last day of said month. This Round-up August-December 2021. So since I last reviewed my blog, I have moved jobs closer to home. You would think that this would mean that I would have more time for reading and blogging, but in fact the opposite has happened. Instead I have read a lot but lost my enthusiasm for blogging. So even after the Christmas break I am still not caught up with my blog reviews. My plans are to catch up on the reviews that I should have done ages ago. Once that is done I can deal with new posts. So wish me luck! Currently reading: Reviews:   Blog Tours:   Challenges: As per usual I’m participating in the Goodreads Challenge.   So what do you think of my round-up August-December 2021? What have you read this month? Let me know in the comments below! Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by […]
