Get ready for a crash course in what I’ve read in the seven months since I’ve posted a recap. Let’s jump right in with December. I made it through a neat 10 titles and it was an above-average month in terms of how much I liked my reading choices. I’ve bolded my favorites in the list below.
- The Young Elites by Marie Lu (December 3)
- Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (Dec 6)
- The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski (Dec 10)
- Scarlet by Marissa Meyer (Dec 16)
- The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness (Dec 18)
- Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy (Dec 22)
- Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro (Dec 24)
- P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han (Dec 25)
- Bone Gap by Laura Ruby (Dec 27)
- Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger (Dec 31)
Standouts from the month of December: The Young Elites was a great villain story. I thought Scarlet was just as good as Cinder (though I still haven’t finished the series). Dumplin’ was adorable and I liked it much more than I thought I would. I still think about Bone Gap all the time, which is probably my favorite from this bunch. Etiquette & Espionage marks the first audiobook I ever listened to, which has become the first of many.
As this was my last set of books for 2015, it brought my total for the year to 76. If the first 6 months of 2016 are any indication, I’m going to pass that number easily this year.
