December 2019 Wrap Up

Hi friends, it’s time for my last wrap up of 2019! December has flown by but also brought some disappointing reads with it. I have quite a bit of two star books and low ranked mangas. My reading also took a dive towards the middle of the month due to my new job. I’m still trying to find a new reading schedule. 

Best Book Read

Catching Him by Aurora Rose Reynolds 

Least Favorite Book

His Forbidden Obsession by Jessa Kane


Image result for twice 2019

This month I found my new obsession and that is K-Pop girl group, Twice. I fell down the rabbit hole and I can’t see myself climbing out. 


NOTHING! I have been a very boring person this month. Seriously! I still need to pick another anime or kdrama to watch.


Now to the main reason of this post, the books! This month I’ve read 11 books, 11 romance novellas, and 14 mangas. December 2019 WU 2December 2019 WU 1

Any title that has a * next to it means that it’s coming up in the next few weeks 🙂

Manga Wrap Up

December Manga Wrap Up

Mars by Fuyumi Soryo – I’m surprised by how much I am enjoying this older manga! I am so invested in the romance and it even dabbles in difficult topics as well. I can’t wait to read more! 11/16 VOLUMES 

A Kiss for Real by Fumi Akuta – This was super cute and I’m excited to read more about Chitose’s journey and her experience! 1/9 VOLUMES 

In/Spectre by Chashiba Katase  – The synopsis really had me interested in picking this manga up. Our protagonist is a disabled girl and that’s amazing! For the most part, I really enjoyed this, but towards the end I became less excited. I feel like they are building up to have some type of love triangle and I’m not here for that. I’ll pick up volume two just to see if it still holds my attention. 1/12 VOLUMES (series is ongoing)

Wolf Girl and Black Prince by Ayuko Hatta – I saw this was an anime on Hulu and decided to pick it up. He literally treats the girl like trash. Nope, moving on. 1/16 VOLUMES

So here is my last wrap up for 2019, see you in the New Year!

  1. Another killer month! Always so taken aback by how much reading you get done each month, Kayla!! I just posted my 2019 wrap up and I feel like it contains less books lol! Jokes aside, I can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store for both of us!!

  2. Wow! You had a great reading month! I haven’t heard of Twice. I’ll have to check them out. I’ve been in a weird listening mood lately, though. I’m either listening to Lake Street Dive or a country playlist I made a year or two ago on Spotify.


  3. Happy to see the Erin Watt books scored high again ❤ I still haven't read the final book yet….whoops. You absolutely crushed it this month with the reading. How do you read so much? teach me your ways lol!!

      1. I didn’t care for Easton’s book either and he was my fave. But since I read it, I want to go ahead and finish the series out.

  5. Great wrap up, Kayla! You’ve read so manga books and mangas this month! I’m sorry most of them were a disappointment for you. I’ve watched two dramas this month Level up(korean), and My Girlfriend is an Alien(chinese). I’ve enjoyed both of them. Next I’m planning to watch Hotel Del luna.
    Hope you have a wonderful, Jan!
