Books Read December 2021: 257-280

Ah December, so many books to finish but never enough time. I still managed to hit a few challenges and while I didn't finish all my Europe books on the shelf, I churned through them to the end!

A gentle reminder that all reviews can still be seen on my Goodreads profile (the review will be with the book; the format will be specified unless it's in print.) And the books with green outlines are my 5-star reads for the month!
