Wrap Up | December 2019

Hello, bookish friends! ❄️

We’re halfway into the first month of the year and I just realized I never did my wrap up for December. Oops. December was actually a really good reading month for me. I managed to finish 14 books, hit my reading goal for the year, and finish an extra four more books on top of that. I officially closed out 2019 reading 104 books which is the most I’ve ever read in a year before. So, I’m pretty happy with that and can’t wait to see where this year will take me!

Let’s dive in!

The God Game by Danny Tobey – ★★★★
Starsight by Brandon Sanderson – ★★★★
Would Like to Meet by Rachel Winters – ★★★
Renegades Marissa Meyer – ★★★

TL;DR

Don’t feel like reading a review?
Here’s my thoughts on each book in one sentence!
  1. The God Game – An AI on a mission to kill without getting it’s nonexistent hands dirty.
  2. Starsight – Would I die for some aliens? Probably.
  3. Would Like to Meet – Cheesy, over the top, but still pretty cute.
  4. Renegades – Cool concept, way too long of a book.
  5. The Guinevere Deception – An Arthurian retelling you never knew you needed.
  6. A Heart So Fierce and Broken – So bad it’ll make you want to pull your hair out.
  7. Ice Like Fire – It took me one whole year to read this, so do with that what you will.
  8. The Selection (#1-3.5)  – I finally found someone more indecisive than me.
  9. A Study in Charlotte – Predictable but still enjoyable.
  10. Four is Fair – Cruel Intentions times 100, we love to see it.
  11. Lost Girl: A Shelby Day Novel – A hot mess express with an MC so unlikable you’d rather her be killed off.

Favorite Read of the Month

I refuse to have to choose between the two of these because they were both so damn good in their own ways. The Guinevere Deception might be my favorite Kiersten White book to date and that takes a lot to say because I loved her And I Darken trilogy. As for Starsight, well, I knew I was going to love this one because Brandon Sanderson’s characters and writing is so good. I may or may not have taken Mistborn out from the library to give some more of his books a try.

Least Favorite Read of the Month

This was just….not good. The writing was choppy, the characters were awful, the romance was atrocious, it was honestly just a mess. Plus, the killer was so underwhelming it hurt.

Until next time,

  1. Literary everyone has read Starsight now but me – I’m had some appliances die on me so I have to save my money and hold off on the books I want to buy [oh the horror!!!]. Also my family [who I love to bits] are selfish and refuse to buy me books for Christmas because apparently I have enough?!?!?! Like what???

    So… I have to wait… For now anyway. 😉

    1. UGH that is definitely a dilemma, however, on the bright side you will have to spend less time than everyone else waiting for the next book now!! And after that ending the wait feels eternal 😩

  2. I’m glad you enjoyed The Guinevere Deception … because I’m at about the 25% mark right now, and am reallllly struggling with it. (It’s so slow and dull!) It must (?) get better?
