Hello and Happy 2021 Everyone! To kickstart what everyone hopes will be a better year, I want to run through what I read in December 2020.
I actually read a little less than I hoped. I had a planned surgery which I thought would lead me to read a bit more during recovery , this didn’t happen. I did however, still manage to finish 12 books; 5 physical and 7 e-books 🙌🏽, which took me to my yearly tots of 189, which I’m chuffed with!!!

What a bumper month of five star reads, five of them! All uniquely different too. I think I did myself a favour by not trying to cram in too many more and I managed to give myself the time to really enjoy these ones!
One that surprised me the most was probably ‘Playing Nice’ by J P Delaney. I didn’t read the synopsis before I dove in (something I actually do quite a lot) and it really blew me away. It really had me thinking ‘what would I do’ as the story unfolded. A real moral dilemma!
One that disappointed me the most was probably ‘Girl A’ by Abigail Dean. Not because it was rated the lowest but because I was expecting it to really blow my socks off and have to be a late entry into my Top Reads of 2020. I think it has fallen victim (for me) of the over hyped let down, which is a shame. I always wonder how much I’d have loved a book if I’d never heard it before previously, like how it would affect my judgment.
Have you read any of these? Do you agree with my ratings?
Looking forward to reading Girl A but I’ve heard quite a few mixed reviews about it this past year.
