Reading Wrap-up for December at Moonshine and Rosefire

Hello everyone out there and I hope that you all had a terrific reading month for yourselves. I am known as Rosefire around the Internet and this is my new personal reading blog. I originally posted my reviews over at my daughter's blog, Emeraldfire's Bookmark but am now in the process of transferring them all over to my own blog. My daughter makes blogging look like so much fun that I thought that I would try it out for myself! :)

Anyway, I started out December with 644 unread books lying around the house and ended the month with 631 books unread. All of the books that I acquired this month came from Bookmooch and Paperback Swap; I have bought no new books this month. Books that I truly wanted to read, Mareena downloaded to her Kindle as a Christmas present for me. :)

Let me try to break down the influx for you:

- Lightning by Danielle Steel

Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm a newbie as far as book blogging goes, having been blogging at my daughter's blog for only about two and a half years. Now it's time for me to get my feet wet on my own. Please be gentle with this blogger. Love to hear from you all. Have a great day! :)
