My Bookish Month of December 2018

Hello and welcome to my monthly overview! It seems it has been a very productive month!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Call me Star Girl by Louise Beech ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Well of course it is! I didn’t include it in my Best of 2018 list because it’s not out yet, but keep your eyes peeled for this one in the new year! I will be posting a review when the time comes, obviously, but I can tell you now: it’s total amazeballs and I will reread it next year just so I can put it in my Best of 2019 (and also because it’s total amazeballs, duh).
