I read 5 books in December.
December is usually not a great reading month, because DUDE stuff to do. Shoveling and extra traffic and Christmas shopping and visiting family and OY. I’m glad it’s over this year.
Here’s the itty-bitty reviews of the few I managed to read last month…
The Sum of All Kisses by Julia Quinn – Some swoon-worthy moments, but Quinn has done much better.
Parasite by Mira Grant – Interesting premise, great secondary characters… curious to see how the sequel is going to be.
One of Our Thursdays is Missing by Jasper Fforde – Definitely not one of my favorite Thursday Next novels, but I really enjoyed seeing the changes to BookWorld, and seeing the RealWorld from a written character’s perspective. And that sentence only made sense if you’re familiar with the Thursday Next series, which you should be, because it’s overall awesome.
“Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!” by Richard P. Feynman – A fascinating collection of life stories and musings by Feynman himself. Not very physics-y, but a great autobiographical book.
NOS4A2 by Joe Hill – Delightfully sinister, fast-paced book with a Christmas theme that is not very Christmas-y at all. It was clearly perfect for my mood this year, and really well done.
And there we have it! Easy-peasy. See ya, 2013. Have you read any of these? Any on your TBR?
