December Reading Recap

2018 is over and it’s time to look back over the month of December. December was a weird month for me because both my grad semester and fellowship ended so I was on vacation for three weeks, traveled home for Christmas, and prepared to start a new job. I still got some reading in though!

Books Consumed: 15

  • Back in the Game by Steve Scalise
  • Dear Committee Members by Julie Schumacher
  • Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty
  • Bonfire by Krysten Ritter
  • 29 Dates by Melissa de la Cruz
  • The Refugees by Viet Thanh Nguyen
  • Roomies by Christina Lauren
  • The Lies We Told by Camilla Way
  • What Waits in the Woods by Kieran Scott
  • For Better and Worse by Margot Hunt
  • When We Caught Fire by Anna Godbersen
  • The Continent by Keira Drake
  • The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo
  • Citizen by Claudia Rankine
  • My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren

Audiobooks Listened To: 2. Slow audio month for me. I listened to The Refugees and Citizen, both of which were fine. I preferred Refugees.

ARCS Read: 3. Back in the Game, The Continent (original ARC) and 29 Dates.

Favorite Book: Hm, probably Bonfire. I flew through it and really enjoyed it! It was different than I expected, which was actually a good thing this time.

Least Favorite Book: Probably The Continent for content/writing. Racist tropes aside, the writing was super stilted and unrealistic.

January TBR: I’m trying to get ahead for my class reading!

  • Monday’s Not Coming
  • Bad Blood
  • Swing
  • The 57 Bus
  • I Am Malala
  • The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein
  • The Prince and the Dressmaker
  • Love and Other Words
  • Two Can Keep a Secret
