I know I’m a little late in posting my December wrap-up post but I actually wrote a lot of posts and did a couple of surveys towards the end of the year so…  I know, excuses.  But I’m glad that I finally caved in and wrote this post.

READING CHALLENGE STATS

  1. GoodReads Reading Challenge – 106/100*

LAST MONTH ON-HOLD

grave-mercy-robin-lafevers the-rogue-not-taken-sarah-maclean days-blood-starlight-laini-taylor the-coldest-girl-in-coldtown-holly-black cold-hearted-rake-lisa-kleypas

  • Grave Mercy – Mainly because of the foreign sounding similar names.  It’s such a shame because I really, really liked the heroine!
  • The Rogue not Taken – I felt that Sophie was TSTL and I didn’t like the flow
  • Days of Blood & Starlight – I really wanted to like it but it was just too weird.  I may pick this up again this year.
  • The Coldest Girl in Coldtown – This will be another book that I will pick up this year.
  • Cold-Hearted Rake – This was hard for me to put on hold because it’s LISA KLEYPAS, but I didn’t like Devon or Kathleen.

FAVORITE MONTH READ

Illuminae

Illuminae wins this hands down!

MOVIES SEEN

Everybody repeat after me: REY!

TV MARATHONS

the-100 the-seven-deadly-sins

  • The 100 – How did I NOT see this?!
  • Seve Deadly Sins – Pierre has been in an anime craze the last couple of months and he forced suggested I would enjoy this.  I tried not to, BUT IT’S SOOOO GOOD!

 


RANDOM THOUGHTS

My TBTB Secret Santa is Kate from Ex Libris and she gave me new books to read from an author I haven’t tried!

  1. OMG Ezrah you read all the books I want to read last month 🙂 I can’t wait to get to Illuminae 🙂 Interesting that you didn’t like Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children that much. I tried to read it many times and can’t pass the first pages 🙁
    Same with the 100! For some reason it didn’t seem that great in the first episode maybe I should give it another try.
    DoSB… it also seemed too weird for me 🙂
    Have a great new year
