Happy December! 🥳🎄✨
I can’t believe it’s December already, like how is time going so fast? It’s my birthday month (december 16th) and Christmas is coming up so I can’t complain, though!
As for my reading of November… I participated in Nonfiction November and it shows in the books I have read since they’re all nonfiction. I really enjoyed most of them and found some new all time favorites!
