December has been a very hectic month, because of Christmas preparation, Christmas parties and of course Christmas. You can read about my Christmas HERE. Hope you all had a wonderful holiday, and I want to wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I was planning on reading more books in December, but I’m really satisfied that I was able to finish 5 books. I have read some highly anticipated books for me this month. I was so hyped for these books, but they all let me down. I’m so disappointed by every book I read. I’m going to write reviews on all of these books that goes deeper into details.
I read a total of 2083 pages this month.
What I Read
Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch
Book 2 in The Gentleman Bastards series
I really loved book one in this series, The Lies of Locke Lamora. I was really eager to read book 2, and continue reading about Locke and Jean. I didn’t like this book as much as I liked book one, but it is still a good book. 4 stars
The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman
Book 1 in His Dark Materials series
This book is a popular children’s fantasy book, that has won awards. I know a lot of people love this and I was really interested in reading it. Even though I liked some parts of it, this book wasn’t for me. 3 stars
The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
Book 2 in Dash & Lily duology
I loved book one in this duology when I read it last Christmas, but this book was kind of meh. Not great, but it didn’t suck either. 2.5 stars
Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Book 2 in The Illuminae Files series
I was highly looking forward to this book and it is one of my most anticipated books, because I love Illuminae. I love the mixed media and the story of book 1. I’m really sad that I didn’t like Gemina, and I’m very disappointed by it. I gave it 2 stars.
What Light by Jay Asher
This was the only book on this list that I didn’t plan to read this month. I didn’t know anything about it before I started it. I only knew it was a Christmas themed book, and that the cover is beautiful. This book wasn’t for me at all, and I had to give it 1 stars.
