Books Read – December 2015

Instead of posting a TBR list at the beginning of each month, I’ve decided to simply share a list of books I’ve read in a post at the end of the month. Posting a regular TBR list helped to get me back into the habit of reading more diversely, but I’m trying to minimise the number of checklists I keep for myself (I have an unfortunate list obsession), so adjusting these posts to ‘have read’ instead of ‘want to read’ seems to be an easy way to get rid of one list. Due to various family and end of year commitments and a desire to clear a backlog of books I need to review for Kids’ Book Review, most of the books I’ve read in December were picture books.
