Monthly Wrap-Up | December 2019

Happy Holidays everyone!

2019 flew by. This is definitely a cliche, but the year really did go by quickly, at least for me. I got two new jobs within the same company and I’m still looking to move up.

During the month of December, I focused on rereads and ARCs for the upcoming year. Most notably, I reread Clockwork Angel and Skyward. Both of which I enjoyed immensely.

A few housekeeping items I’d like to talk about before my December wrap-up. There’s going to be a lot of typical end of the year posts coming up. These include:
-My typical December wrap-up and TBR
-2019 in review post where I’ll have a few reading stats and all the books I read this year organized by rating
-Disappointing books of 2019
-Best books of 2019

I usually feature of the best books of the month from differing genres, but this month there was only one standout. 

 

Best Books of the Month 1

Starsight is a spectacular sequel that will keep you on the edge of you seat and make you beg for more once it’s finished.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

everything else 1

 

 

The Rebel King is a good conclusion to this duet that is more than a mindless romance. Instead, All The King’s Men offers an intimate look into the American political landscape from a perspective not often seen in romance novels.four stars black

 

 

The Beautiful is not resurrecting vampires anytime soon. It’s a boring novel I’d recommend you skip.two stars black

 

 

Jane Anonymous is one of those novels that proves YA has more to offer than fluff stories full of instalove and love triangles. It features trauma and healing in a realistic light and the challenges people face from the stigma attached to mental health.four stars black

 

 

Skyward is a lot of fun. Readers get to tag a long as Spensa learns to become a pilot and discovers the truth about her father, herself, and the planet she lives on. In true Sanderson fashion, he pulls the rug from underneath readers in a wholly and completely unexpected fashion.five stars black

 

 

What I enjoyed the most about Clockwork Angel is getting a better understand of the shadow hunter world, more specifically how the Clave operates and their views.five stars black

 

 

 

Releasing Keanu is a beautiful story about healing from unimaginable trauma and finding inner strength to open yourself up to the world again.four stars black

 

 

The Majesties has an interesting story buried deep in the novel, unfortunately, the poor execution does a disservice to the concept.two stars black

 

 

All Wrapped Up for the Holidays is a worthwhile anthology perfect for the holidays. With heartwarming stories, it will even warm up the heart of The Grinch!three stars black

 

 

Have you read any of these? What did you think? What did you read in the month of December?

  1. Looks like you had a pretty great reading month! I can’t wait to read Skyward and I don’t know why I’ve been putting it off all 2019 😅 Hope 2020 continues to be bookishly awesome for you! Happy reading 🙂
