December was the month when the horrible, devastating book slump of mine was defeated! Boo ya. I read so many books and I felt so good getting back into my old reading mojo.
Nine books seems like a dream right now because these past six months!! or so I have been reading like two or three books a month…I could cry I am so happy.
Paperbacks and hardcovers:
1. ”Furiously Happy” by Jenny Lawson
Absolutely hilarious and a fast read. This is a really nice book to read when you are bored, a nice cup of tea and a blanket to go with it. I gave this a 5 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.
2. ”It Ends with Us” by Colleen Hoover
I enjoyed this book, because I think for me it is really hard not to like CoHo’s books. It wasn’t as good as I thought it would be though, but I ended up giving this book a 3.75/4 star rating on Goodreads.
3. ”Harala elulood” by Mats Traat
This was a really pleasant surprise. I actually got chills reading this. So powerful and yet a small book with few words. I absolutely loved this and I cannot be happier that my Literature teacher talked to us about this. I gave this one a 5 out of 5 stars rating on Goodreads.
4. ”Carmilla” by J.Sheridan Le Fanu
This book was given to me by a friend and I read it. It was ok, but it was not anything amazing. The story felt a little bland and so did the characters. It actually took me two tries to get into this book and finish it. I gave this a 2.75 stars on Goodreads.
5. ”Girl Online Going Solo” by Zoe Sugg
I don’t really like this trilogy and this book just annoyed the hell out of me. I wrote a review too so you can go and read it if you want. I gave this a 2.75 stars out of 5 on Goodreads.
6. ”Am I Normal Yet?” by Holly Bourne
It was a good book, funny and had a really strong feminist outlook. I wrote a review in which I mostly talked about the problems that were brought to the fore in the novel. Gave it a 4.5 stars on Goodreads.
7. ”Illuminae” by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
The greatest sci-fi novel out there, no joke. This was absolutely amazing. I stayed up until 4 o’clock reading it until I was finished. This was new and funny and just blew me away. Gave it a 5 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.
1. ”Melody’s Key” by Dallas Coryell
I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. It has a lot of 5 star ratings on Goodreads but I was kind of let down by it. I didn’t enjoy reading this at all and the only reason I pushed myself through was to see if I could get through. I got this for review and my review is up on Goodreads, I’ll upload it here soon as well. Gave this a 2 stars out of 5 on Goodreads.
2. ”Royal” by Winter Renshaw
This was a meh book as well, I didn’t like it but then again I didn’t hate it as well. It was just an ok book to read. I gave it a 2.5 stars on Goodreads.
My least favourite book of the month is: ”Melody’s Key”, it was just not a good book. I’m sorry.
My favourite book of the month is: ”Illuminae” most definitely! I loved this book so so much. Everyone go read it!
