  • 1 general fiction book
  • 1 literary fiction book
  • 1 mystery/thriller book

That Happy Reader



  1. Thank you so much for sharing. The Nantucket Inn sounds like it is going to be a great book. I will be adding that to my reading list for 2021. I can't wait until you share you review.

    We seem to have very similar reading likes. I really appreciate reading your reviews and ratings. It helps me determine what I am going to read next.

  4. 9 books...congratulations! I envy however you’ve managed to carve out the time to be so well read. I know we’re all playing within the same constructs of time, but still super impressive you have your personal schedule fine tuned to that degree. Happy new year and best of luck to you in 2021!

  5. Congrats on reading so many books in December - I think I managed 2 :( Fingers crossed I can remedy that in 2021 though. HNY Jodie, stay safe x

  6. Great selection of happy holiday themed books. And great reviews. Some of these sound fab! Xx

  7. Nine books in one month is incredible! I'm really excited to see some upcoming reviews on the list x

  8. That's really interesting! I love going through and seeing which blog posts performed well. It's fun to find out what actually caught people's attention plus it's a great tool for continued growth moving forward!

  9. I love reading your monthly wrap ups! It sounds like you read some great holiday themed books this month, I'll have to check those out soon! Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a happy and safe new year! :)

  10. Happy New Year Jodie! Bummer no 5 star books in December but lots of 4s is good! I've been having such trouble getting back into reading fiction this year but am happy to report I finally found one I'm excited about! Unfortunately I'm almost done with it. Wishing you the best of luck in 2021!

  11. It's my goal for 2021 to read more! I normally read on my commute to work, and having lost that for most of the year I haven't read as much!
