Monthly Rundown: December 2016

Posted January 5, 2017 by Bonnie in Monthly Rundown / 8 Comments

Books Read = 17

Awww… my last rundown for 2016! I can’t believe it’s a new year already. But good riddance, I say.

Posted Reviews

I had kind of a crazy/amazing month in terms of posted reviews for two reasons: 1. I’ve started up a new DNFs in review post called “Life’s Too Short” so those count towards my totals and 2. I’ve dug up an old post style I used to do called Short & Sweet where my reviews are vastly shorter than my typical style. I knew my totals were going to be larger than normal but ddaaaamnnn… I wasn’t expecting 15. lol

Unreviewed Reads

And because of my new Short & Sweet reviews, that doesn’t leave much reason NOT to review. These four were the only ones I read last month that didn’t get anything written about them.

87957Best of the Month: Skipping Christmas by John Grisham ★★★★★
It was a re-read but it still counts because I enjoyed it just as much this time around as I did the first.

Least Favorite: I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid ★★
There was so much outrage surrounding the ending to this that I had to pick it up out of sheer curiosity. Everyone was right. The ending sucks.

Biggest Surprise(s): Wildest Dreams (Fantasyland #1) by Kristen Ashley ★★★★
I bought this on a complete whim for $0.99 and honestly wasn’t expecting to dive into it immediately. This one is very long but well worth it if you enjoy fantasy romance.

Biggest Disappointment: The You I’ve Never Known by Ellen Hopkins ★★½
I’ve been a huge fan of Hopkins for many, many years and this one was not nearly as good as her past stories.

  1. You rocked December. I have a copy of I am Thinking of Ending Things but I don’t know whether to read it or not. You have peaked my curiousity. I am surprised you gave up on the Mira Grant.

  2. It’s awesome to see you kicking ass! I also had a lot more success when I let myself DNF review and use shorter reviews for some books. You were on a roll, though!

    Love the idea of mentioning biggest surprises, and biggest disappointments! I never though to include that in my wrap up.

    • Thank you, Jessie!! It was a nice way to end the year. 🙂

      I just thought it’s easy to list them all out but I like to call attention to some, you know? Make sure people are aware how awesome (or shitty? lol) a certain book is.
