Time flies, ya know? I just realized it’s already Jan 3rd and I haven’t post a wrap up for December. Having the kids out of school and the husband home for the holidays really throws off my perception of time.
In December, I read a total of seven books, one being a graphic novel and one being a novellette. I actually stopped reading when I finished The Night Circus on December 29th because I ran out of room on the page I was using to track my reading in my bullet journal. Seriously. Not kidding. I’m that anal. I couldn’t stand the thought of either not recording another book or having to waste an entire new page for just one more book. I need therapy.
So, I read:
- Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris. 304 pages.
- Three Sisters, Three Queens by Philippa Gregory. 556 pages.
- Wool by Hugh Howey. 509 pages.
- Gilded Cage by Sherry D. Ficklin. 80 pages.
- Shift by Hugh Howey. 570 pages.
- I Hate Fairyland, Vol. 2: Fluff My Life by Skottie Young. 128 pages.
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. 400 pages.
For seven books, I read a total of 2,547 pages and an average rating of 3.71 stars. That, folks, is a good month of reading. I only had one dud on my list that I wish I could just forget about. If I could, that would be six books with an average rating of 4.16 stars.
My favorite for December is The Night Circus. This was a truly magical book. Very close behind it are Wool, Shift, and I Hate Fairyland. If you’re not reading the I Hate Fairyland graphic novels, you should be. They’re so funny. I love the language, the color palette, and the artwork is wonderful.
I only reviewed one of these books on my blog (linked above), but if you’d like to hear my thoughts on any of the others, you’ve only to ask. 🙂 I hope your December of reading was as great as mine.
