Bookish Roundup – December, 2017

December-Roundup

I’m so excited to share with you the final Bookish Roundup of 2017!! December started out amazingly well as I raced through the books, but towards the end of the month, things began to slow considerably for me. That said, I still managed to pack a total of 16 books under my belt (bringing my total books read in 2017 up to 229!). I read in my comfort zone, out of my comfort zone, and around my comfort zone – I read all kinds of books in December, and I enjoyed almost all of them immensely.

Books I Read in December:

I was quite pleased to finally pick up the Night trilogy by Elie Wiesel, something that, I’m ashamed to say, had been on my TBR for over twenty years. Hauntingly, boldly, and bluntly, Wiesel tore my heart to shreds. I worked quite a bit of YA into the mix, and even got some YA Fantasy on that list for good measure. All of those were great reads that I definitely recommend. I had a lot of heavy reading in December, so it was nice to be able to work in a little Jenny Colgan, my go-to, feel-good cozy romance diva extraordinaire. If I had to choose a top three out of all 16 books I read, I would have to go with Starfish by Akemi Dawn Brown, Devils Within by S.F. Henson, and Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill. All three are YA novels; all three are spectacular.

I’m super excited to get started on my reading list for the new year, and to see what new books come into my life as well. I just know 2018 is going to be a year of good times and even better reads. I wish the best to all of you and hope you have Happy Reading in the new year!

What was the last book you read in 2017?
