Thankfully, December was a lot better than November reading and blogging wise. I dedicated the entire month to catch up with ARCs and requested reviews and, even though I’m still behind, I think I did a good job. Especially since the holidays are always a crazy time. So, let’s see how December went!
BOOKS READ THIS MONTH
- Fallen to Grace | Featuring a creative and complex world of wingless angels, a hybrid queen to-be, and demons.
- Bitter Sweet Love | A poetry collection on heartbreak, love, and sex that I didn’t find very touching, but that still has some powerful lines within.
- The Ugly Teapot | Clichéd but fun spin on the Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves tale dealing with grief.
- The Girl Who Watched Over Dreams | A thriller that presents an induced dreaming afterlife. It started out strong, but ended up disappointing me.
- Making Tracks | Poems dealing with ordinary events in our lives, as well as deeper thought-provoking topics, all done beautifully. There’s a theme for everyone in this.
- The Lost Sheep | A poetry collection on religious and spiritual themes. I couldn’t connect with it.
