Ali’s December 2019 Monthly Wrap-Up

Linking up with Monthly Wrap-Up Round Up at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

December was a bizarre reading month for me with the holidays. I can’t believe I read 15 books (16 really because The Maysen Jar Box Set has 2 books in it)! I was a reading machine at the beginning of the month, but I got very little reading done the last two weeks of the month since I had family and friends over nonstop.

Dashing Through the Snow ~ Review

Ali here ~

Title: Dashing Through the Snow
Series: N/A
Author: Debbie Macomber
Release Date: Oct 6, 2015
Genres: Contemporary Romance/ Holiday
Blurb:

Savor the magic of the season with #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber’s newest Christmas novel, filled with warmth, humor, the promise of love, and a dash of unexpected adventure.

Ashley Davison, a graduate student in California, desperately wants to spend the holidays with her family in Seattle. Dashiell Sutherland, a former army intelligence officer, has a job interview in Seattle and must arrive by December 23. Though frantic to book a last-minute flight out of San Francisco, both are out of luck: Every flight is full, and there’s only one rental car available. Ashley and Dash reluctantly decide to share the car, but neither anticipates the wild ride ahead.

At first they drive in silence, but forced into close quarters Ashley and Dash can’t help but open up. Not only do they find they have a lot in common, but there’s even a spark of romance in the air. Their feelings catch them off guard—never before has either been so excited about a first meeting. But the two are in for more twists and turns along the way as they rescue a lost puppy, run into petty thieves, and even get caught up in a case of mistaken identity. Though Ashley and Dash may never reach Seattle in time for Christmas, the season is still full of surprises—and their greatest wishes may yet come true.

Ali’s December 2019 TBR

I really enjoy putting together a TBR for each month, but I found that I also like to give myself some freedom to add things in here and there. So, this month’s TBR is a list of all the books I need to read to complete my 2019 challenges and that I’m hoping to read for a couple readathons this month. The rest of my TBR space I’ll be leaving open for whatever I’m in the mood for this month.
