Hello and Happy December everyone! Despite all that’s going on in the world, I’m actually excited for the Christmas season, probably because it’s the spirit of giving that’s taking over right now. I’m actually having a hard time limiting myself on what I’m gifting my friends and family because, ya know, I still have bills to pay (ugh, adulting). I’m also probably in a better mood because I’ve been more in a reading mood than the past few months. The rut is (hopefully) finally over!
With my reading game being up again, I spontaneously decided to join the Reindeer Readathon, created by Breakeven Books. I am on Team Mistletoe, which I was honestly hoping for due to my favorite Richard Paul Evans books being the Mistletoe Collection.
Now, because I’m a mood reader, I know there’s no way I can choose the exact books that I’ll do for all the prompts – only a few have the exact choice should I be able to get to that prompt. Instead, I’ll be listing what books I have or have access to that might be able to fill a prompt, so that way I’ll have a choice when I get to it. I believe only two prompts have a single book picked out, mainly because I don’t have other options that I’m interested in.

Some of these books are able to fit other categories should I decide to not read them for the category they’re under. I’ll most likely stick to the lists for the prompts, but you never know. Now all that’s left to do is choose my first read for this readathon!
Are you doing any readathons for December, or just taking it easy?
