Bookmark Lit Bulletin | December 2020

Posted January 2, 2021 / Bookmark Lit Bulletin, Features, Wrap-Ups / 2 Comments


BL headerThe Bookmark Lit Bulletin wraps up the last month in reading and what was on the blog, as well as what’s coming up next. You can check out my book haul, books read, posts shared, challenge updates, etc. You can read past bulletins here. If you’re looking for more personal updates, you can check out my Lauren Lately feature; it highlights my life events and non-bookish fun from the previous 30 days.

I pulled it off! I managed to read enough books to meet my (lowered) reading challenge of 100 books. I definitely read some short books, novellas, and cookbooks to make it happen, but I’m proud of myself. I read all of the Christmas books I was hoping to get to except for one!

December: Read EIGHTEEN BOOKS, good lord ?‍♀️

So I ended up going back through and adding a few cookbooks that I read earlier in the year. I did read 16 books though! I met my goal but didn’t need to read 18 haha.


Planning for Next Year | I have a few posts coming for next year still! Otherwise I really have no idea what else January will look like around here.

  1. So many good looking books. I need to get my hands on Holidaze and that cookbook. Those look really good and I love CL’s books. I’m going to need to figure out how to play Romanceopoly. That looks like a lot of fun.
