Best: Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis
Runner up: Confessions by Kanae Minato
Worst: milk and honey by Rupi Kaur


Only one 5 star book, but not a bad reading month overall!  And definitely one of my more prolific months of reading – having time off work for the holidays certainly didn’t hurt.

I think I’m going to post a separate yearly wrap up, so I don’t have much more to say here, but here’s what I’m currently reading: Days Without End by Sebastian Barry (I really thought I was going to love this but it’s like pulling teeth, I have considered DNFing more than once but I think I’ll stick it out) and Elmet by Fiona Mozley (I barely started this but I think I’m going to like it).

I think I’m going to indulge my mood reading habits a bit more in the new year, so I can’t promise what I’m reading next.  But I am doing a group read of The Game of Kings (the first book in the Lymond Chronicles) by Dorothy Dunnett in January with Chelsea, Steph, and Hadeer, so I’m looking forward to that!

What’s the best book you read in December?  Comment and let me know!

    • It gets ordered a lot where I work so I’ve flipped through it before and had a very strong sense that I wasn’t going to like it, but I had a kindle unlimited trial and it was on offer so I couldn’t resist seeing what all the hype was about. Since it only took me about a half hour to read I can’t say I regret it, because at least I can now say with 100% certainty that I think it’s pretty terrible.
