December TBR & Exciting News!

Happy DECEMBER, guys!!!

Woohoo, it’s that time of the year when the merry holiday season arrives and there are beautifully decorated stores on the streets and the atmosphere is just perfect. ❤ I love seeing all those Christmas trees with bright fairy lights, adorable adornments and intricately wrapped gifts under them because they always make me feel a sense of belonging and an extreme amount of gratitude. :”)

Well, December is not all about Christmas or holidays; it’s also a great time for book lovers to either get lots of books/bookish items (with perfect excuses) or plan to read a bunch of books (like I do) JUST BECAUSE.

So sit back, relax and let me show you what I have in mind for this wonderful month! Sounds good?

The Fall Book Tag

For the first time in my blogging life, I finally catch up with something trendy! Thanks to Flavia at Flavia the Bibliophile for tagging me in this fun tag!

To begin with, The Fall Book Tag as well as the beautiful graphic design were created by the lovely Shanah from Bionic Book Worm so please go take a look at her blog, too! I love the questions a lot and I tag anyone who’d like to add some autumn-ish color to your blog. ❤

Happy end of June, peeps!!! How have you been?
