It’s Christmas Eve, which means it’s the end of Bookmas! I’m pretty disappointed that I didn’t manage to post the 24 book reviews I was aiming for, but I think I posted 16 book reviews and a couple of other things as well, which is better than a poke in the eye at least. I’m not entirely sure what happened, I suppose I just underestimated the business of December. I did go away for a few days which I was sort of allowing for, but then I was ill when I got back and I just never managed to catch up again. The build up to Christmas has also been super crazy this year. It’s pretty manic every year, but this year it was completely bonkers and I really don’t have a clue why. I’ve got family coming to stay within the next half hour or so, and the house is only just ready and I’m still in the middle of making truffles, so it’s still all go! I think it’s fair to say that real life ran away with me a little bit. Oh well, I’ve still posted more reviews than if I’d never bothered with Bookmas in the first place, so it’s not all bad.
My family have just arrived (eek, they’re early!), so I’d better dash. I’ll be away for the start of New Year, but then I’ll be back with a series of book vs film reviews and my yearly goals for The Steel Review. HUGE thanks to everyone who’s liked, subscribed or commented during the past year, I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my rambles because I’ve certainly enjoyed writing them. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and I’ll be back in a couple of weeks. Eat all the food, drink all the booze, and be merry.
