Reading Round-Up: November/December 2019

books, the-writing-greyhound

It's time to say goodbye to another year already. Can you believe it? I definitely can't!

This year has certainly been twelve months of ups and downs for me in terms of my reading habits, including some sparse spells interspersed with some super productive bookish months. Overall, though, things have flattened out to result in one of my best years for reading goals in a long time, which is definitely positive!

So, shall we see how 2019 ended - and most importantly, did I manage to meet my annual reading challenge this year?

If you missed my last reading round-up post, you can find that here.

What is Reading Round-Up?

Reading Round-Up is a simple way for me to keep track of everything book-related and a fun way to show you what I've been reading over the last few months!

Out are the books I've read in November and December.

In are the books I've acquired during that time.

And wishlist are the books I've found out about and want to buy but have yet to manage to get my hands on!

What have you been reading recently? Have you read a book I should know about? Let me know in the comments below!


  1. I'm definitely going to make a start on the Secret of the Commonwealth this year. I'd even forgotten I'd pre-ordered it and got a shock when it arrived in the post. I'm currently reading 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami and finding it hard going, even though I've read him before and understand how different he is. Thanks for linking up to my bookworms linky x

    1. I hope you enjoy The Secret Commonwealth! I'm looking forward to reading it too x
