Bookmark Lit Bulletin | December 2023

Posted January 10, 2024 / 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 made the executive decision to stop reading once I hit my 115th book of the year, even though there were a few days left in December. I got sick the weekend before NYE and just decided to keep it at a nice round number for the year and give myself a break. I finished the book with 10 books read plus one DNF, which was a nice and easy way to end the year.
