5 Worlds Book 1: The Sand Warrior - Boya Sun,Matt Rockefeller,Xanthe Bouma,Mark A. Siegel,Alexis Siegel

In true Ghibli-style artwork, every turn of a page reveals a brilliant new set of colors. This would make a stunning animated film, maybe Studio Ponoc could do it or Dreamworks based on their amazing CG sand work in Rise of the Guardians. It was a little difficult at first to get into the story with so many different words unique to this universe thrown about and there is so much put in bold that if it's supposed to be the character's emphasizing all of them in one speak bubble, it makes the dialogue sound off. There was a lot of that, but the artwork - for me - makes up for it, it's a graphic novel and a wonderfully crafted one at that. Can't wait to read the second volume!

Catherine de Valois (The Legendary Women of World History) (Volume 2) - Laurel A. Rockefeller

I read this as part of Renaissance Queens by Laurel A Rockefeller while listening to the audiobook version. I enjoyed listening to the telling of Catherine's life. The song as sung by the narrator was very enchanting. I found this book very informative with the facts in between the story. This is a time period I really enjoy.

I was given the audiobook as a gift and without solicitation leave this review.

Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, Sr.
Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. - Ron Chernow Okay, not amazing. Really fascinating topics but author is enamored of his chosen narratives in a really blatant and sometimes distracting way. Also reads like a long, very rambling account- needed more editorial attention to pacing, etc.

Kindle Novellas for December
Fields of the Fatherless - Elaine Marie Cooper
Knight of the Cross - Steven A. McKay
The Last Crusade - K T Tomb
Boudicca: Britain's Queen of the Iceni - Laurel A. Rockefeller
Caesar's Sword (I): The Red Death - David Pilling

Season of the Raven - Denise Domning
Sons of York: Richard III and his Brothers (Tales of the White Boar Book 3) - J.P. Reedman
Sacred King: Richard III: Sinner, Sufferer, Scapegoat, Sacrifice - J. P. Reedman

Rather than feeling overwhelmed by my reading goal, I have found some quick Kindle reads to help me fit in my last nine books of the year. (Thanks to YouKneeK for reminding me of Goodreads' sorting by number of pages function!) If you are feeling the reading challenge pressure, check these out. They are mostly books that I have picked up for free at some point & are probably still free or inexpensive. I'm not sure if they meet everyone's definition of a novella, but they are all under 200 pages, and several are under 100 pages.

 

So, here it is, my second attempt at a December reading list. I also have Little Paris Bookshop and The Old Betrayal in progress. 2015 won't defeat me!
