Hello readers! I hope you had a great start with 2022. But before I post anything with new year and 2021 list posts that I have prepared to post this month I better get done with December Wrap Up. Last month of the year went in trying to complete 100 books goal that you all know I did and that’s why I read more books comparative to previous months of the year. I also have written many drafts with reviews of books I completed, list of series I finished, standalone books and so on… that I will post throughout January. But before that here is what I read in last month of 2021-

Dog Squad by Chris Grabenstein
Dog Squad was fun and adventurous animal fiction that revolved around Fred, an average underdog who learned to be courageous and found his forever home. The story was about bravery, courage, fighting fears, friendship, and family. All dogs were amazing quirky and fun to read. Best part was all the Dog Squad TV show scenes and their life adventure. Review will be up soon.
Like a Love Song by Gabriela Martins
Like a Love Song was lovely and cute YA romance that revolved around Natalie a Brazilian pop-star who had to fake date to better her image but it soon turned into real forever feeling that helped her find herself and reconnect with her culture and family. The story was about embracing roots and culture, dealing with pressure of fame, family, friendship, and love. Best part of the book was Netalie struggle and her development and romance. Review will be up soon.

Christmas at Little Beach Street Bakery (Little Beach Street Bakery #3) by Jenny Colgan
I thought I will pot review of this in December with Christmas season but I couldn’t but I never mind reading or publishing Christmas reads any time of the year and well this was more winter book than Christmas one so it will be alright to publish review in Jan. So, this was last book in Little Beach Street Bakery trilogy and it turned out was such a delightful, stress-free, cozy read. The best part was subplot of Kerensa’s pregnancy and Polly finally learning about her father and life message told through it. Mount Polbearne was, of course, another best thing in book and I also loved seeing the relationships of Kerensa-Reuben and Polly-Huckle facing issues as they prepared to take next step in life.
4 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Fading Stars : A Short Story Collection by Tanmay Kulkarni
This was a collection of 21 short contemporary stories that covered different themes of love, friendship, memories, heartbreak, loneliness, and mental health issues at its heart. All stories were quick read, some had lovely poems, thoughtful lines, and well-written messages, but sadly this didn’t turn out good for me. Check out full review by clicking on title.
