We finally made it to the end of 2021, but it was just another lost year to throw in the pile with 2020. Before looking fully to 2022, it’s time to look back on the last month of 2021.
During the month of December, I read 11 books! Check em out!
So, here are some stats!
Number of pages read: 4594
Number of print books: 7
Number of e-books: 4
Favourite quote of the month:
“All the stars in the sky are not as bright as my love for you.” – King of Battle and Blood
Without further ado…. here is my favourite books of the month from differing genres.
Leviathan Falls is the long awaited finale to The Expanse series. This series has been one of my favourite sci-fi series, so I’m sad to see it go but supremely happy that it delivered a satisfying conclusion.
King of Battle and Blood surprised me. I wasn’t a fan of St. Clair’s A Touch of Darkness, so I was hesitant going into King of Battle and Blood. Thank fully, it delivered on almost all fronts.
The Way of Kings Prime does read like a first draft, however this unpolished, first draft reads better than a lot of fantasy novels on bookstore shelves today. If you’re a Sanderson super fan, The Way of Kings Prime is a must read. Four Stars
Window Shopping is the perfect holiday read if you’re looking for a romance with angst and spice as only Tessa Bailey can write it. You won’t need to sit by the fire with this one to keep warm. Four Stars
Merry Ever After as a whole was slightly disappointing, but mostly because of the inclusion of two stories based in already existing series. Three Stars
Through My Window was a little juvenile for my tastes but I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of unnecessary drama and the steamy scenes. Three Stars
A Court of Mist and Fury. This was my second time rereading it this year. Enough said. Unlimited Stars.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: Minalima Edition. These editions are gorgeous! I started a tradition of rereading them for Christmas! Five Stars.
A Year of Love is one of the better anthologies I’ve ever read. It features a great mix of genres so readers will be sure to find something to their liking. Four Stars.
Dead Lands is a disappointing entry in the Savage Lands series that is repetitive, annoying, and leaves readers with more questions than answers. Two Stars
Zodiac Academy: Origins of an Academy Bully is a quick look at Darius and Orion years before Zodiac Academy: The Awakening. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but I wouldn’t recommending starting the series with this novella as it’s a poor introduction to the world. Four Stars.
Have you read any of these? What did you think? What did you read in the month of December?
