Reading Queue: December

The Reading QueueWell hello there!

Before I was pregnant I really doubted this whole “pregnancy brain” phenomenon. I actually thought it Forgetfulwas a cop out for women just dropping the ball. I completely admit it. Especially because now I know that it really is a thing! No joke. It wasn’t until about a week ago that I realized “Oh yeah. I didn’t post my November Reading Queue”! OOOPS!

So yeah.

But I’m really excited to say that I remembered December! But before we go through my plans for December, let’s take a look back at what I did read in November.

Reading Queue: August

The Reading QueueHello!

It’s time for this month’s Reading Queue! But first…

The big announcement has been out for a while but in case you hadn’t heard…

I’m pregnant!Marshmallow

Yay! It’s still early as I’m only about 9 weeks in and still kinda hard to believe! I’ve had pretty constant morning sickness that has really been more like all day sickness for the past two or three weeks. All that nausea has put me on a I don’t feel good enough to do anything other than veg in front of the TV, so I’ve been watching a lot of Gossip Girl on Netflix and not doing a lot of reading or blogging. So my Reading Queue July summary is going to be pretty slim! haha

How I Did In July

As I said, my reading was slim in July due to morning sickness.

Reading Queue: July

The Reading QueueHi there!

This is me on summer vacation.The Office Dance

I love it. I love it. I love it!

 How I Did In June

Tomorrow is July and have I told you how much I enjoy my summer break? A LOT! But as for June…June was a month of insane traveling. Seriously, I don’t know why I thought it wouldn’t be! The week following the last day of school, I chaperoned a five day field trip to Disney with about sixty sixth graders which was really fun, yet utterly exhausting! Then my husband and I went on a whirlwind trip to Savannah and Florida to see family and friends. I did manage to finish six books though. But overall…yeah…not a whole lot of reading happening!
