December ’15 Monthly Reads

Hello everyone!

It has been awhile since I have done a “Monthly Reads” post, but here it is! With Christmas around the corner (YAY!), you may be asking yourself what you will gift to your many bookish friends?  Well here are some great options to check off for your Christmas list, or you could keep these for yourself 🙂

I am going to try something a little different when describing each of the books. I am going to use three words and/or phrases to describe the synopsis of each book.  If you would like to know more about one of these selections, just click on the title and the link will direct you to the corresponding Goodreads page 🙂 *Let me know below if you like this post style better 🙂
