Monthly Reading Wrap Up -- December

So that's a wrap for December.  In keeping with my anal retentive need to keep to certain patterns, even with the 2015 wrap-up post, I still felt the need to post a monthly reading wrap-up.

 

I'm planning on reformatting my monthly reading wrap up posts for future postings (maybe), but only because I know I tend to get long-winded and try to add more details than necessary.  I'll probably just simplify things into "Books Read", "Books Reading", and "Books Planning to Read", or something like that, and then maybe do a few random book haul posts every so often.

 

I just wanted to finish out the full year without completely revamping my monthly wrap up posts because: Obsessive Compulsive Illogical Reasonings.

 

Anyway, as per usual, I've found my average number of books read per month and have accepted that I probably won't surpass that number unless miracles happen.  And I'm cool with that now--no more attempts at squeezing in more books to reach the 20+ range, especially if I want to find some time to write reviews and plan other bookish blog posts as well, or slack off and make multiple lists of which I may or may not use for future posts.

 

However, for all the blog writing I've been doing and all the list making and all the new years planning... I think I've done quite well for myself in my reading life for December.

My 2015 Year in Books @ Goodreads

Read-a-thon: Bout of Books 15

 

Reading Wrap-Up

18 books total were read in December.  I think I mostly made it because of the one audio book, two short stories, two novellas, and several short Christmas fluff pieces.  Okay, so not several, but enough that it added to my numbers this month.  And to be totally honest, with the exception of one book, the rest of the books I read in December were easy reads or reads that had me hooked enough to keep going.

 

  • Series I started reading in December:

Romancing Wisconsin by Stacey Joy Netzel

Suspense series by Kaylea Cross

 

  • Series I completed in December:

None

 

  • Series I have made progress on in December:

Corpus by Jessica Khoury

Buchanan-Renard-MacKenna by Julie Garwood

Lucky Harbor by Jill Shalvis

Mindhunters by Kylie Brant 

 

My favorite books read in December include The Sweetest Thing and Head Over Heels by Jill Shalvis.  There was also A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens as my Christmastime "read"--a book I actually listened to as an audio book, narrated by Simon Vance that I really, really enjoyed.  Then there was Spinning Starlight that I enjoyed, but still have some reserves about.  Mistletoe Mischief by Stacey Joy Netzel was a surprisingly enjoyable short holiday read.

 

I was a bit disappointed in Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson, if only because I hyped myself a little over than was necessary.  And I was surprisingly disappointed that Unexpected Gifts wasn't as fluffy and holiday romance-y as I'd wanted it to be--mainly because the book started out well, but then spiraled into "what the heck is going on here?" as the novella came to a close.  Sadly, I was also disappointed in Shadow Dance because I'd been under the impression that Julie Garwood's Buchanan-Renard books were getting better and more enjoyable with each installment--Shadow Dance was a step back.

 

Coming Up Next (tentative scheduling)

  • Tentative TBR for January

  

 

 

Book Haul / TBR Additions

  • Freebies:

 

  • Discount Deals:

 

  • Bought as New:

 

  • Audible:

 

  • Checked Out From the Library 

 

 

Final Thoughts

Aside from one or two books, December was actually filled with books I could really get into.  And when I can really get into a book, I automatically find time to read them no matter what else is going on.

 

So December was actually a very productive month for my bookish life.  On top of getting more books read than I've been able to do in a while, I've also been spending time planning my bookish activities for the new year:  choosing reading challenges, making lists, preparing more bookish spreadsheets for each reading challenge... in general, determining how I will go about blogging my bookish life in 2016.  I've even managed to format and post all of my reading challenge wrap-ups and yearly bookish wrap-up for 2015.

 

And then, in a final hurrah, I made the decision to participate in Bout of Books' January Read-a-thon; then I spent one evening formatting and planning all of my update posts.

 

I feel like I've accomplished a lot more in these last two weeks of December than I have for the past few months.  It's a good feeling.

 

 

Surprisingly, my plans for spending money on certain books and getting some bonus reward points and the like hasn't really followed through.  I haven't bought as many books as I'd been expecting to buy--not sure how I feel about that.  Though I DID do a brief freebie spree while looking for some cheap and fluffy holiday reads.

 

Here's to hoping that next month, and next year in general, will be a better one.  Although I'm already determined not to push myself too hard with books I can't get myself to enjoy.  I might work on being less stubborn and letting myself drop books if they just aren't working for me.

Very Brief Thoughts: Desert Heat (novella)
Desert Heat: A Novella - Cindy Gerard

Desert Heat -- Cindy Gerard

**novella -- originally published as part of Rescue Me anthology alongside:

  • Tropical Heat by Cherry Adair
  • Atlanta Heat by Lora Leigh

 

 

I love Cindy Gerard!  A little Cindy Gerard novella to keep me over until I start reading her One-Eyed Jacks books in January (That's in two days!  Yes.  I'm on a schedule here.)

 

This was an enjoyable and fun, fast-paced read. Standard Cindy Gerard characters, bantering, sexy times, and suspense and action. A little on the formulaic Cindy Gerard Romantic Suspense-side, so it was predictable.

 

But I still loved it!  I'm not even certain that I'm able to dislike a Cindy Gerard book anymore.

Read-a-thon: Bout of Books 15

Bout of Books Bout of Books Read-a-thon Sign-Ups

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 4th and runs through Sunday, January 10th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 15 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

 

 

As part of my 2016 Bookish Resolutions, I DID say that I would try to participate in at least one read-a-thon for the 2016 year.  So, you know... why not this one?  I've seen the Bout of Books Read-a-thons floating around and have been interested for a while.  But I always feel like I'm too bogged down with Real Life activities to focus on reading.

 

Of course, there are no rules that dictate you must read during the entire time of a read-a-thon, so I might be able to swing this week-long one.  If I could manage some good reading during the Dewey's 24 Hour back in October, I should be okay with this one.

 

 

Goals

I honestly don't have any actual goals to complete for this read-a-thon aside from: Read as many books as I can manage.  I'm going to be participating in this read-a-thon in as laid back a fashion as I can.  I still have to work and have a lot of things planned for January already anyway, so I'm just going to feel my way around this Bout of Books Read-a-thon and see how I do before I try again and actually set some goals. However, I tend to be able to read around 4 books a week if I'm on a good roll.  Maybe I could set that as my goal.  Maybe not.

 

 

Read-a-thon Hopefuls

 

I have plans to start reading The Immortal Heights and The Apprentice at the beginning of January and may still be reading both books when the read-a-thon starts up.  So hopefully these two books will be finished within the week duration of Bout of Books. Followed by Frost is one of 48 of 2016 Reading Assignment books I will be reading in January and probably the second one I plan on reading for that challenge, which I feel I'll probably start reading that second week of January. And I just want to read Hungry Like the Wolf... for my own reasons.

 

(Clicking on the covers of each book will take you to the book's Goodreads page.)

 

 

I've been contemplating my next audio book and on a whim, just decided that I would like to listen to Let's Pretend This Never Happened, an autobiographical memoir by Jenny Lawson.  I bought it with an Audible credit months ago and haven't quite been in the mood for another autobiography since Neil Patrick Harris.  I might start into this one for January, and it'll spill into the Bout of Books Read-a-thon.

 

 

Links to Update posts

(coming soon -- subject to change)

The following post links are subject to change mainly because I don't know how often I will update on this read-a-thon during the week even if wishful thinking has me updating daily.  

 

We shall see how it all works out.

My 2015 Year in Books @ Goodreads

Lol.  I hadn't really clicked on this page yet and now that I'm looking at it, it just looks really fancy.  These are also the exact same stats that I've been keeping track of, except my numbers are a little different.

 

I also see that the Most Popular Book I read this year and the Least Popular Book I read this year are both books I didn't really care for.  Go figure.

 

 

 

 

Also, I don't know why, but I found this kind of funny:

 

"You're really good at reading, and probably a lot of other things, too!"

 

I suppose there's a correlation to being good at reading and a lot of other things.

My 2015 Year in Books!

 

While this year seemed a little less impressive (to me) in terms of number of books read, but still feel like I've accomplished a lot.  Between becoming more social on Booklikes, meeting a lot of new people, and participating in more bookish activities (Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon, an unofficial Winter readalong, various reading challenges, etc...), I feel like this has been a very productive bookish year.

 

Without further ado, here is my 2015 year in books up to this point.

Favorite Books Read This Year

(Book title links lead to my personal reviews.)

 

Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography by Neil Patrick Harris

 

Technically, I listened to the audio book version of this autobiography.  And Neil Patrick Harris is an extremely charming and witty narrator with excellent comedic timing.  No wonder he's so freakin' awesome!  

 

Officially, this is my favorite book I read in 2015.

 

 

Winter (Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer

 

I've never really been that big on science fiction, but retellings are one of my bookish pleasures.  While The Lunar Chronicles was never really my most favorite series ever, I've been keeping an eye on it mainly because I loved the world it is based in and love the retelling aspect of it and love the characters.  There was just always something I felt was missing.

 

But with the concluding book, Winter's release, everything seemed to just fall together and I had the hugest book hangover after finishing it since my days of binge reading Japanese manga.  And no wonder, after I realized that Marissa Meyer had tailored her story and characters with Sailor Moon in mind.  I always thought this series had an anime-ish feel to it and always thought it would make and excellent mini-series anime.

 

Officially, this is my favorite 2015 book read in 2015.  And Carswell Thorne is my most favorite character from a 2015 book.

 

(As of this point, I have not read Sherry Thomas' The Immortal Heights and so cannot rule that book out as it is also a concluding book in a series I'm in love with.)

 

Other Lunar Chronicles books: Cinder, Scarlet, Cress

 

 

 

by Cindy Gerard

Whisper No Lies (Black Ops, Inc. #3)

Killing Time (One-Eyed Jacks #1)

 

Cindy Gerard is, to date, probably my favorite Romantic Suspense author.  For a while I had thought that she was just a temporary obsession as a new-to-me author from last year.  But then I binge read all of her Black Ops, Inc. books and immediately fell in love--with her books, with her characters, with her world, with her writing, with her suspense and action, with her romances...  Especially with her characters.

 

In fact, the BOI series is probably one of my favorites I read this year.

 

Officially, Killing Time has a better progression and more intriguing writing than Whisper No Lies.  But I'm forever a Johnny Duane Reed and Crystal Debrowski lover even if Mike Brown and Eva Salinas are an awesome pair.

 

 

Other Black Ops, Inc. books: Show No Mercy, Take No Prisoners, Feel the Heat, Risk No Secrets, With No Remorse, Last Man Standing; novellas/shorts: Leave No Trace, SEALed with a Kiss, Dying to Score

 

 

Shadowfell Trilogy by Juliet Marillier

Shadowfell

Raven Flight

The Caller

 

Juliet Marillier is magic.  With beautiful writing, attention to detail, and intricately planned progression and wonderfully created characters, I absolutely fell in love with the Shadowfell trilogy by the time everything came to an end.  Despite the fact that the series started off on a slow note with Shadowfell being quite drawn out in the traveling aspect, the books just kept getting better until I, again, absolutely fell in love with our characters and our world when I finally got to The Caller.

 

This is the type of high fantasy adventure I love, with an extended, detailed world with room for more expansion, and great characters you easily and readily love even as they have their flaws and faults.  And, of course, a satisfying Happily Ever After for all.

 

 

Uprooted by Naomi Novik

 

Uprooted is a retelling based on Beauty and the Beast.  However, you probably wouldn't have guessed that given the direction in which the story begins to take you from the very beginning.  And while there were some issues here and there I nitpicked with, I ended up loving this book so much that I didn't care that it wasn't perfect.  Agniezka is, hands down, one of my favorite characters ever encountered and probably one of my favorite 2015 book characters (right behind Carswell Thorne from The Lunar Chronicles, of course).  With her flighty, strange approach to magic and her fiery,  unafraid to get in her mentor, Dragon's face, things just keep getting better as the book progresses.

 

 

Six of Crows (The Dregs #1) by Leigh Bardugo

 

Honestly, I hadn't known what to expect when I picked up Six of Crows aside from having loved Leigh Bardugo's Grisha trilogy.  I knew she had excellent humor and wit, attention to detail and a wonderful sense of world building, basing her stories in a Russian setting.  But Six of Crows, honestly, blows the entire Grisha trilogy out of the water.  It is thus far my favorite of Bardugo's books with a much more thought provoking feel to it and a deeper, darker look at the chaos in a war torn land, but with a light-hearted undertone of wit, sarcasm, and readily relatable characters.

 

 

The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani

 

I hadn't really been expecting much when I read The School for Good and Evil.  It's got a great premise with a fairy tale based jumping board and so much potential for parody that I had been looking forward to it the moment I heard about it.

 

But it's also a middle grade novel and I've found that, being so far removed from youthful years, I tend not to enjoy middle grade novels as much.  HOWEVER, rather than feeling like I had a hard time relating to the characters in this book, I found it extremely delightful and insightful on a lot of levels.  Even if I ended up with a lot of loose ends and many quibbles about the way some things were handled.

 

Nonetheless, this book was a lot of amazing fun.

 

 

-- Special Mentions --

 

Dracula by Bram Stoker

audio book narration by full cast including:

Simon Vance, Tim Curry, Alan Cumming, Katherine Kellgren, Susan Duerden, and more.

 

There's really not much to say about this classic horror novel.  This is technically kind of like a reread for me as I had read Dracula for a book report back in middle school.  But since it was such a long time ago and I never quite finished reading the book in full, this could also be said to be a new read as well.

 

Certainly, Dracula is an excellent classic, one of few that I actually like, despite the fact that things start to drag towards the end of the novel.  As it is, I'm sure a lot of my enjoyment of this book's reading in present-day has mostly to do with the stellar narration cast.  

 

Simon Vance has become one of my top audio book narrators to look out for, while the rest of the cast had also caught my attention.  I especially loved Alan Cumming's voice as Doctor John Seward--very charming.

 

 

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

audio book narrated by Simon Vance

 

Simon Vance.  A Christmas Carol.  Need I say more?

 

I suppose I should state that I've never really read much of Dickens' works.  My middle school and high school years had been plagued with the reading of Great Expectations, wherein I dive into the book and somehow taper off into stopping reading by sometime midpoint in the novel.  I made a third attempt sometime in college with the same results.  I mean, I even own the darn paperback with hopes that I'll one day read it.  

 

I know he's a great writer.  But I suppose some books just aren't for me.

 

But this little blurb is supposed to be about A Christmas Carol.  And this short Christmas themed story was quite fun and as excellent as all the adaptations I've seen over the years.  It is classic and memorable for a reason.  I just also never realized how eerie some parts of this story could get.

 

And also, Simon Vance's narration really brings the entire story to life.

 

 

-- Novellas and Shorts --

 

 

Leave the Window Open by Victoria Schwab

The Little Android by Marissa Meyer

Carswell's Guide to Being Lucky by Marissa Meyer

Fairest by Marissa Meyer

 

Short stories aren't works that I pick up all that often.  And when it's part of a series, I tend to get a little irritated because then I have to go search for it if it's not already part of one of the main books.  But this year, there were three short stories part of a series that I read and absolutely love.

 

Wesley Ayers from The Archived series has always been one of my favorite YA main male characters, so getting a short story from his perspective (Leave the Window Open) was a wonderful treat!  And, as I'd said before, I seemed to like The Lunar Chronicles' shorts and novellas more than I had been liking the main books (until Winter).  I especially loved Carswell's Guide to Being Lucky a lot.  Fairest is technically not a short, but it's a side novella and was also a wonderful read.

 

 

-- Honorable Mentions --

 

Quicksilver by R.J. Anderson

Seduction Game by Pamela Clare

Dead by Midnight: An I-Team Christmas by Pamela Clare

Killjoy by Julie Garwood

Slow Burn by Julie Garwood

 

Suddenly One Summer by Julie James

Mistletoe Mischeif by Stacey Joy Netzel

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

Freefall by Jill Sorenson

The Prophet by Amanda Stevens

 

The above listed Honorable Mentions are books that I read in 2015 that I loved in one way or another even if they weren't entirely my favorites of the year.  I specifically wanted to make mention to Julie Garwood's Buchanan-Renard-MacKenna series, as each book is more enjoyable as the series progresses.  My specific favorite of the series, so far, is Killjoy.

 

Julie James and Pamela Clare are always a delight to read (also two of my few auto-buy, auto-read authors.  And who can ever say 'no' to a Brandon Sanderson book?

 

 

-- Series Mentions --

 

Lucky Harbor by Jill Shalvis

Simply Irresistible, The Sweetest Thing, Head Over Heels

short story: Kissing Santa Claus (Small Town Christmas anthology)

 

Lucky Harbor is twelve books long and I have the distinct feeling it's a finished series now since Jill Shalvis seems to be working on a new series.  As far as Contemporary Romances go, this one is quite enjoyable and humorous, with lots of character interaction that is heart-warming and light.  Despite the unoriginal love story devices, the books are extremely entertaining and the characters are awesome to follow.

 

Chloe and Sawyer are now one of my favorite fictional couples ever.

 

I will attempt to finish the rest of the series:  Lucky in Love, At Last, Forever and a Day, It Had to be You, Always on My Mind, Once in a Lifetime, It's in His Kiss, He's So Fine, One in a Million 

 

 

 

Tracers series by Laura Griffin

Untraceable, Unspeakable, Unforgivable

Snapped, Twisted, Scorched, Exposed

Beyond Limits, Shadow Fall

novella: Unstoppable

 

There were ups and downs, but I'm really into this series in general.  And Laura Griffin's writing seems to keep improving with each progressive installment of this series.  Also, I'm a little impressed with myself that I had read and caught up with this entire series already within 2015.  I guess it kind of goes to tell just HOW into these books I've become.

 

Even though none of the books really stand out on their own, I'm still really enjoying this series for little trivial reasons.  I suppose I just grew to love the series.

 

  Looking forward to the 2016 release of the 10th installment, Deep Dark.

 

 

Steele Street series by Tara Janzen

Crazy Hot, Crazy Cool, Crazy Wild

Crazy Kisses, Crazy Love, Crazy Sweet

 

I have only read the first six books in this series so far, with five more to go.  But I've enjoyed this entire series so far as easy, relaxing, "shut your brain off" crazy fun.  If it's one thing I love, it's nonsensical, crazy fun, with some subtle comedic undertones that just either amuse you or makes you laugh out loud without realizing it.

 

Looking forward to finishing the rest of the series:  On the Loose, Cutting Loose, Loose and Easy, Breaking Loose, Loose Ends

 

 

 

KGI by Maya Banks

The Darkest Hour, No Place to Run, Hidden Away,

Whispers in the Dark, Echoes at Dawn, Shades of Gray,

Forged in Steele, After the Storm

novella: Softly at Sunrise

 

The first four books were great.  The sixth book was also enjoyable, but mainly because there's a superwoman involved.  The rest of the books were just meh, even if I managed to enjoy them to an extent.  

 

I had such high hopes that I could continue to love this series, but I'm starting to waver--especially since I would love to see Rusty get her story and I also love the family-friend-character bonding in these books (even if they ARE more or less, more cheesy than I can handle).

 

Let's hope the rest of the books can continue to woo me, or we might have some words.

 

Left to read:  When Day Breaks, Darkest Before Dawn

 

 

 

X-Ops by Paige Tyler

Her Perfect Mate, Her Lone Wolf

novella: Her Secret Agent

 

X-Ops is a fairly new series, recently started in 2014, with a paranormal twist to its romantic suspense.  Without realizing it, I ended up really enjoying both books I read and will continue following this series as well as, possibly, other series by Paige Tyler.

 

Left to finish:  Her Wild Hero, Her Fierce Protector

2016 Bookish Forecast

I'm not sure it would be a wise idea to list all 48 of my Reading Assignment Challenge books for 2016, so here is a link to my 2016 Reading Assignment Challenge starter post.  And it's probably not tenable to list all the books I plan to read, so how about a list of books I'm most looking forward to reading in 2016?

The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater -- final installment of The Raven Cycle

Deep Dark by Laura Griffin -- 10th installment of the Tracers
