Bookmark Lit Bulletin | December 2022

Posted January 16, 2023 / Bookmark Lit Bulletin, Features, Wrap-Ups / 0 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’m an annoying person that feels like they have to complete everything… so even though we’re halfway through January, here’s my December wrap-up. To be fair, I read a HUGE amount of books to finish off 2022 strong and complete my Goodreads challenge, so I can let myself get some credit here! I read 7 books in November and *17* books in December lol.
