I can’t believe 2018 is over – it feels like it just started, but at the same time it feels like the year has dragged on for a millennium. We had Olympics in 2018. Black Panther came out in 2018. What even were you, 2018?
Anyway, my final parting shot to the year that lasted forever is my December wrap-up. I redeemed myself after my stunning display of literary apathy known as November 2018 (wherein I read one book and shamed myself) by reading four in December. Huzzah!

I read the gamut in December, from gasoline infernos to kidnapping, from ghost boys to romantic London snow-laced kisses. What a way to wrap up a strange, strange year: nothing that unifies or makes sense. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I am almost finished with M.A. Bennett’s S.T.A.G.S., and after that I will probably tackle at least one Beat the Backlist book in order to hit my self-imposed, semi-random goal of at least one BTBL book a month.
Of course, Two Can Keep a Secret and The Wicked King come out next week, so all bets are off on that one, too.
