Monthly Rundown: December 2015

Books Read in December: 12

OUCH. December was a super rough month for me and I got very little reading done. Clearly. Not only did I get next to no reading done this month but I only managed to post 5 reviews. The holidays, what can I say. It is what it is.

Posted Reviews

Un-reviewed reads

DNFs

Another reason for my low book read count this month was my DNFs. Typically when I DNF, I quit super early on so I don’t waste a whole bunch of time. With Fates and Furies and Krampus, I got at least halfway through, and especially with Fates and Furies I spent DAYS on it. Wasn’t worth it, I’ll tell you that much.

Book Review – Dear Mr. You by Mary-Louise ParkerBest of the Month: Dear Mr. You by Mary-Louise Parker ★★★★★
Don’t you love it when you pick up a book with little to no expectations and it completely blows you away? This ended up being hands down my favorite book of the year. Going to be remembering this one for a long time.

Least Favorite(s): Just Fall by Nina Sadowsky ★★
This was a pretty unremarkable debut mystery that failed to impress me. Enough said.

25734248Biggest SurpriseThe Widow by Fiona Barton ★★★★
I was sent Just Fall, this, and one other but because I read Just Fall first my expectations were rock bottom for the rest of them. I was pleasantly surprised by this one, even if the damn blurb references both Gone Girl AND The Girl on the Train. Stahp, publishers, please.24917919

Biggest DisappointmentWinter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer ★★
I’ve been a huge Lunar Chronicles fan from the beginning so I’m not sure if my expectations were off the charts or what but this just didn’t do it for me. At all. Everyone and their dog has loved this so it’s clearly a black sheep situation.

  1. Aw I’m sad you didn’t like Winter! I didn’t think it was the strongest of the series at all, but I still adored it. And I loved Illuminae too. xD hehe I didn’t read a lot in December either! I kind of used it as a break month, and January is when I’ll get back into serious reading. ;P
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!
