December Wrap Up & January TBR

Hey Book Lovers!

Today I am bringing you my December Wrap Up & January TBR! In terms of the Wrap Up, I am pretty impressed wth my reading this month, and it definitely helped that I joined Aentee’s #ReadersCrossing ReadAThon! I ended up reading all the books I put on my TBR for December and on my #ReadersCrossing Sign Up & TBR. Overall, I read 6 books, 2 graphic novels, and listening to 1 audiobook.  I also posted 10 BookTube videos which are all linked below!

Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet, Vol.2 by Ta-Nehisi Coates – 3/5 stars! Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet, Vol.2 has Fantastic Art, but weaved with a complex storyline. Giving up on this one, it’s not for me. Full Spoiler Free Review Here!

Because You Love to Hate Me edited by Ameriie – 3/5 stars! Because You Love to Hate Me was interesting and beautifully written. However I didn’t connect to any of the anthologies! No Review Currently. 

A Destiny of Dragons by TJ Klune – 5/5 stars! A  Destiny of Dragons was hilarious, with inappropriate humour (which is my kinda thing), sexual jokes & the best cast of characters! No Review Currently.

JANUARY TBR

All The Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater:  I am already 38% of the way through All The Crooked Saints and I am excited to get back into Maggie’s writing style and see where Maggie takes this story.  

The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton: This is The Quarterly Club’s winter book and this one is definitely going to be an interesting read! I hadn’t heard of The Miniaturist prior to it coming our book pick, but I am excited to read this one as it is a bit out of my comfort zone.

 

Darker by E. L. James: I am 80% of the way through Darker already, and it’s a guilty pleasure read for me, I regret nothing! 

Those are all the books on my set TBR, I haven’t picked any other books currently, so I will leave it like that and pick up others depending on my mood.

That is all!

Let me know in the comments what books you read in the month of December!!

Talk to you soon book lovers!

Happy Reading.

  1. This sounds like a very good reading month…maybe that’d just my biased opinion at seeing Morning Star cause I LOVE that trilogy to pieces & am anxiously awaiting the release of Iron Gold later later this month 😂😂😂 I also read Cruel Prince in December & DEVOURED IT! so good! I Hate Fairyland is on my tbr & just as soon as I can justify buying it, it’s a done deal haha! Just subbed to your Youtube channel & will be binge watching later tonight 💜

    1. Thank you so much!!! Morning Star brought me so much joy, and also destroyed my soul. I NEED Iron Gold AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! I really enjoyed The Cruel Prince too, it was so much different than I thought it would be… AND THAT ENDING YAAASSSSSS. I Hate Fairyland is probably one of my favourite Graphic Novels, it’s so funny and colourful, I just loved it! Thank you so much for subscribing to my channel, I appreciate it!!!!

      1. Yassss!!! Morning Star felt like such a roller coaster ride of emotions I couldn’t get off 😂😂😂 thinking of making Martin Luther King weekend a 4 day just so that I can read this book with no chill 😉 the ending to Cruel Prince was so bad a**!!! Didn’t see it coming & have to give so much props to Holly Black for writing this first installment so well! Cannot wait for the follow up 😃 & yea I think the colors I see in the cover alone of I Hate Fairyland have me sold that it’s something I need 😂 & you’re very welcome, look forward to talking all things Books 💜
