Hey everyone!! We did it! It’s the end of 2015! Today however, I want to wrap up the books I read in December, as I’ve been doing for the past couple of months. Last month, I was able to finish 13 books because I had Thanksgiving Break and I was going ham on the audiobooks. In December, I had finals and then 2 weeks of Winter Break. I’ve finished 10 books, which is pretty good for me! (Hey, I started & finished Sherlock and was doing other productive things besides reading over the break, okay?).
First, I listened to Prodigy on audio, and thought it was just as good as Legend, but it didn’t wow me quite yet. While listening to that, I finished Passenger finally! I had started this one over Thanksgiving but it’s a monster of a book. Passenger was awesome, but confusing at parts. Then I finished listening to the Legend trilogy with Champion, and I have to admit, this one really got me in the feels.
Next, I jumped on an April 2016 release, The Darkest Corners, and it was twisty and fun, but overall kind of disappointed me a bit. Look for my review in the coming months! Then I listened to The Jewel (reread) and the sequel, The White Rose. The first time I read The Jewel, I thought it was AMAZING. But now that I’ve read The Handmaid’s Tale, I see how similar it is and definitely lost its spark from the first time around. The sequel was pretty good though!
After that, I picked up Truthwitch, which is my favorite book of the month. This book has been so hyped up, and it lived up to my expectations! Pre-order this one for sure, y’all. Then I read Firsts, which was a surprisingly un-put-down-able contemporary. Following, I read Not If I See You First – it really should have resonated with me more, but it sadly didn’t.
I asked you all on Twitter what to read next, and so many of you said The Girl from Everywhere! So I picked it up; I deem it as a really enjoyable read, but not absolutely amazing. It’s pretty unique though – it’s set in Hawaii, like what else will convince you to pick up a good book?
And I hope to read and finish A Study in Charlotte before the end of 2015. Now that I’ve watched Sherlock, I will understand the basis of the story!! (Also, do not even get me started on my new obsession with Benedict Cumberbatch…) I’m really excited for this one – hopefully I’ll enjoy it! I’ll definitely let you guys know what I think when I finish it.
So that’s my December reading wrap up for me! Finishing the year off strong for sure. What did you read in December?
