For this month we are reading: BLIKSEM. Lets get started!

Use the books you finish in December to fill out the word, using the first letter of the first word in the title (excluding 'the', 'a' or 'an') or the first letter of the author's name, middle name or surname.

Good luck everyone!

I thought so too, but mostly because three of the books I read were crap!

Angelique (angelique682) | 186 comments I just had trouble with one of them, and to be honest I was quite bummed that I didn't enjoy it cos a South African author approached me and asked me to review it. Was looking forward to it and really hoping that it would be good.


Lauren (Sugar & Snark) | 1260 comments Mod
I'm coming in at the last minute but I'm done.

Congrats to everyone else especially the ones who have read every WoM for the whole year. That is seriously impressive!!!!
