I decided to reinstate my December countdown this year.  This is a one per day prompt where I will literally post the prompt and the relevant book.  I’m hoping to use books read during 2022 where possible and use this as an opportunity to shine the light on some good reads.  Books will be linked to reviews where possible or Goodreads.  If you fancy joining me feel free to dip in and out.  This is just a little fun and isn’t meant to be hard work..

Here are the prompts: 31 days of December and 31 opportunities to give a very quick shout out to a book you’ve loved.


  1. Snow – a book set in a cold or wintry climate
  2. Shopping – the last book added to your wishlist
  3. Wrapping paper – a lovely cover
  4. Gifts – a book you enjoyed more than you expected to
  5. Chocolates – a book that was simply delicious
  6. Christmas stocking – stocking fillers – a novella or short story
  7. Christmas Tree –  a winter read
  8. Baubles – these add some colour, a very colourful and striking cover
  9. Fairy Lights – something magical
  10. Under the Tree – a book you forgot you owned
  11. Mistletoe – a little bit of romance
  12. Holly and Ivy – a book with great world building
