Hello reading friends, long time no post! Again… Life is kind of slipping away from me at the moment, so blogging is not on my mind a lot. Hopefully that’ll change after I’ve moved.
But I couldn’t resist posting a little wrap up! I had quite a good month, so let’s get into it.
LIFEL1K3 – Jay Kristoff
Starting off my December wrap up with a book that I started in November. I was still a little behind on my Goodreads challenge, so I decided to read something that I could read quickly. Jay Kristoff books are usually gone and finished within a few days. This one I overall liked, but it wasn’t my favorite Kristoff book ever.
Everblaze – Shannon Messenger
Going in an entirely different direction, I decided to pick up the third book in the Keeper of the Lost Cities series. Sometimes you just need to read a fun middle grade novel, ya know. I really like this series. The plot is interesting and the characters are fun! It definitely has some more serious themes in it.
A Curse so Dark and Lonely – Brigid Kemmerer
Yay, I finally read this book! I got it as part of my Book Outlet order, and I was super excited to read it. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire story, but I thought the ending was slightly anticlimactic. Yes I have questions that’ll hopefully be answered in the next book, but I thought there would be a little more difficulty with the whole… ya know, monster thing. Either way, a good read!
The Darkest Part of the Forest – Holly Black
A Curse so Dark and Lonely made me want to read more fantasy. This book has been on my e-reader for a long while, so I finally decided to pick it up. Also because I was still trying to make my Goodreads challenge, so I needed something on the short side. I overall enjoyed this book, but I thought the plot was a little slow to pick up. My ships fell into place though, so that was nice.
The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hugo
And now something TRULY different from what I normally read. This book was part of my Christmas gifts along with the Night Circus. I wanted to read more general fiction, and this book actually seemed interesting. Well spoiler alert, it was! I was sucked in from the first page, even though I was super confused about everything. This book kept me on my toes and though some of my suspicions turned out to be correct in the end, I never could’ve guessed at the events that happened in the finale!
I’m gonna end this December wrap up with some graphic novels that I read and counted towards my Goodreads challenge. I took a trip down memory lane and read the first three of the W.I.T.C.H. comics! I used to be obsessed with this series. Both the comics and the tv show were my life and I actually had merchandise as well. Reading this series as an adult I immediately found some issues here and there, but overall it was really fun to dive back into this old obsession!
