Paper Puffs (48): December Recap

newsI totally disappeared again this holiday break, and I think I’ll have to accept the fact that my winters will be mostly Internet-less – but not book-less! I reviewed lots of wonderful books in December, and I’m so excited to list them all here. 😊

BOOKS, RANKED

DID NOT FINISH

Jessica Lemmon’s A Bad Boy for Christmas started off wonderfully (“Glitter. Glitter everywhere.”) but the pacing was too slow for me. I dropped David Sedaris’s Me Talk Pretty One Day and came to the conclusion that I’m so much more engaged and interested when I listen to humor audiobooks compared to when I read the physical books… I couldn’t get into Claudia Gray’s A Thousand Pieces of You – I quit a few pages in, and now I’m doubting my interest in parallel universe stuff as a whole. The final book is one that I really, really wanted to continue but didn’t was Tanya Huff’s Sing the Four Quarters. I remember being obsessed with the second and third books of the Quarters series years ago, but never read the first book. This first book felt a bit convoluted, and I had a hard time immersing myself in the book-world. I guess I’ll try the second book, Fifth Quarter, and hope that I like it as much as I did before!

BOOKS TO READ IN 2016

Moving forward into the new year, I already know that I’ll be reading a lot less than previous years because of school, so I’m setting a very conservative goal of 52 books (compared to 94 books in 2014 and 89 books in 2015).
