CW: domestic abuse; homelessness; intrusive thoughts; reference to parental death from cancer
Merry Inkmas is not your traditional holiday romance novella. If you’re looking for a light-hearted holiday romance, this is not the story for you. Now, I don’t think that should put you off the story though.
However, and I’m being honest, this is a bit of a hard novella for me to review. After reading it almost a month ago, I feel a bit indifferent toward it. Don’t get me wrong, I liked it, but it didn’t leave as much of a lingering impression on me as I thought it would. It was fine?
Hello, 2023! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year!
I took some time off from the holidays from blogging to spend time with the family, but I’m back and ready for action! I did a TON of reading in December (14 books to be exact) to help me hit my reading goal of the year, finishing up book 100 on New Year’s Eve. Hopefully, you hit all your bookish goals!
I will do a reading recap for 2022 sometime soon, as well as recap some of my favorite reads of the year so keep an eye out for that!
And now, let’s take a look at my last reads of the year.
Ahh, summer. We barely knew ya! I just got back from a beach vacation down in North Carolina, which accounts for my silence here the last week or so. While I wasn’t reviewing books, I was actively reading them as I love sitting and reading on the beach (as well as going into the ocean).
Thanks to time off of work and vacation, I managed to read 10 books this month – not too shabby if I do say so myself. I’ve surpassed 70 books for the whole year and am ahead of my reading goals for 2022, which always makes me feel happy!
August was also Read a Romance and Romance Awareness Month so my reading revolved around romances, which honestly is not a change of pace for me as I pretty much read romances every single day.
