Hello everyone, I hope you all had a great break over December! I did manage to get a lot more reading done, but only seemed to have one book which blew me away (I mention it several times in our poll below!) So without further ado here's our recap of December, and do help us by voting for which book we should read this month from our tbr piles in the poll at the end of this post.
Number of Books read:
Jasprit: 5 stars (Graceling by Kristin Cashore)
Rachel: 5 stars
Jasprit: Ink is Thicker Than Water by Amy Spalding
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine
Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando
Rachel: I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga
Rumor Has it by Jill Shalvis
Best read of last month:
Jasprit: Graceling by Kristin Cashore, I have probably been harping on about this book for the last month now, but seriously all this book has been receiving is all deserved. I'm hoping to read the next two books this month.
I'm going to name one of the two I reviewed on the blog, so out of the two I reviewed I'd have to say I enjoyed Rumor Has It more even though I rated them the same. What can I say, I'm a romance girl.
Book which surprised me the most:
Jasprit: I'm going to have to go with Graceling by Kristin Cashore again, although I did read 14 books last month, to be honest most memorable one is Graceling. First of all its a genre that I normally wouldn't read, so I'm quite surprised by the impression its left with me.
Rachel: I Hunt Killers. It was surprisingly brutal and gave me massive creeps for being a YA read!
Fictional crush of the month:
Jasprit: I'm going with Po from Graceling, he was just the sweetest character ever, he had the most patience in the world and was always looking out for others. I was a little wary of him in the beginning, but after one particular scene, I was a huge fan!
Rachel: Oh, definitely overprotective Griffin from Rumor Has It!
Three books I'm most looking forward to this month:
Jasprit: Breaking Point by Kristen Simmons. I absolutely adored the first book in this series: Article 5, so I can't wait to be back with this fantastic set of characters once again.
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge. I actually didn't request this book until fairly recently and that's because all of these amazing review started popping up on my feed about how much of a gorgeous read this book is!
Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller. I'm finally picking up my first book by Trish Doller today thanks to the lovely Jess from Jess Hearts Books.
Four Seconds to Lose by K.A. Tucker, Sweet by Erin McCarthy, and The Chocolate Temptation by Laura Florand *sigh*
I went to Leicester Square in London for the Christmas and seriously it looks amazing, they had this cute funfair and I just didn't want to leave. Christmas is definitely one of my favourite holidays, so I thought I'd leave this photo up for you guys who are missing it too :(
And now to the fun bit where we want you guys to take part. Rachel and I have enormous tbr piles, so we've decided that each month we will let you decide what we need to read asap. Last month you picked Blood Red Road by Moira Young for me and Feed by Mira Grant for Rachel. We will have our thoughts up on both of these books soon. We can't wait to see what you guys pick for us this time, the poll will be open until this Friday.
