Monthly Rundown: December 2017

Posted January 4, 2018 by Bonnie in Monthly Rundown / 4 Comments

Books Read = 11

I consider this a raging success considering I worked 65 hour weeks the entire month. I posted a TON of reviews because I had a bit of a backlog going and I was determined not to enter the year with those still hanging over me. I usually do book cover collages for these posts but fuck that, there’s too many.Β πŸ˜‚

Best of the Month: How to Talk to a Widower by Jonathan TropperΒ β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…
I read and lovedΒ This is Where I Leave You but I had yet to pick up anything else by this author. I ended up reading two this month. I constantly love the dark humor and sarcastic nature of his characters and can’t wait to pick up the rest of his stuff.

Least Favorite: Getting Rid Of Bradley by Jennifer CrusieΒ β˜…β˜…33734
I signed up for the Audible Romance Package and was running out of ideas so decided to try some old Crusie stories. I absolutely adored Agnes and the Hitman but I have honestly yet to find anything else of hers that I love… I’ve read three others and they’ve all been meh. Bet Me is next and I’ve been told it’s a good one.

Biggest Surprise: Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins ReidΒ β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½
I read an ARC of Forever, Interrupted way back in 2013 and it managed to rub me the wrong way so badly that I wasn’t even super willing to give the author another shot. Thanks to the Audible Romance Package, I decided to chance it. I listened to three of hers this month and while one was meh, the other two were enough to have me forgetting our rough start.

Biggest Disappointment: Opposite House: Poems by Claudia EmersonΒ β˜…β˜…β˜…
I’m not huge on poetry, but I’m always willing to give it a shot. Late Wife totally changed poetry for me and I wanted anything and everything of Emerson’s, although her works are a bit hard to find. I purchased a copy of this one and it was nothing like Late Wife. Still beautiful, but not nearly what I was hoping for.
