Unfortunately, my favorite time of the year is over now, and the start of a new year begins. So, to start the year with the right foot, here is my December wrap up! December was the month that I read the most with a grand total of 5 books; mind you all of them except for 1 were over 400 pages so I think it’s save to make that statement. Here is the list:
Boy Meets Girl by Meg Cabot. This is an epistolary novel, which was the first time I read this type of book. I found the format super interesting and it made me realize how hard it must have been for Meg Cabot to write it. It was a cute and fun book that I really enjoyed. Rating: 4.5 stars.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab. I have mixed feeling about this one. I had such high expectations going into it because I head so many great reviews, but unfortunately it didn’t quite deliver for me? I’m not saying that it was bad, the story was actually very gripping and the world super interesting, my only problem with it was that I never felt attached to the characters so it was hard for me to root for them. I don’t know if I’ll keep on reading the series. Rating: 4 stars.
A Winter’s Promise by Christelle Dabos. Another book with mixed feelings. The story was great, the world amazing, and the magic unlike anything I’ve read before. Unfortunately, I had a hard time liking the main character, Ophelia. I feel like she has so much potential to be a strong character in the series, but she just lets everyone else step over her and use her and that doesn’t sit well with me. However, I have to admit she did grow a spine by the end of the book so hopefully the next book will be better. Rating: 3.5 stars.
The Emerald Sea by Richelle Mead. This book was great, it made me realize how much I missed Richelle Mead’s writing. This is the third book in the Glittering Court Series and after the disappointment that was the second one, this one was a welcomed change. I really enjoyed Tamsin’s POV and the politics of the new world, plus the romance. I forgot how good Richelle Mead is at writing romance stories. Rating: 5 stars.
From Lukov with Love by Mariana Zapata. I will say this until the day I die, I LOVE Mariana Zapata’s books. This book was no different than the rest, it was cute and fun. My only issue was that there was too much inner dialogue and it felt repetitive. Rating: 4 stars.
I loved that during this past month I was able to read as much as I could. How many books did you guys read?
Thank you for reading!
