Here we go again! Another waltz around the month to see all I have read!
I kinda did if DNF’ing a book on my TBR list counts. I’m counting it. Because I tried to read it, I really did.
The Autobiography of Santa Claus by Jeff Guinn
This is the story of how Nickolas came to be Santa Claus. I loved this book so much! It was such a cute Christmas read. You can see more about what I thought about this book here. I did give it 5 stars.
Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
This is a story that asks what if the hero fails and then the villain reigns for a thousand years. My husband has been on me to read this book for a while, and I’m not sure why I didn’t read it sooner, but man did I love this book. 5 out of 5 stars.
In A Holidaze by Christina Lauren
One woman, two brothers, a Christmas wish, and a Groundhog Day style time loop. I’m a sucker for a good time loop story. I liked this book. It was cute and fluffy. A good holiday read. 3 stars.
Paradise Planet by Jesse Lonergan
When their ship crash lands on a planet, a passenger must take care of a drug riddled captain and watch out for hungry lizards. The art was just okay in this graphic novel, and the storyline was poorly done. It could have been more fleshed out. 2 stars.
How Rory Thorne Destroyed the Multiverse by K. Eason
Rory Thorne is a princess who has been given thirteen fairy gifts, now she has to use them to save her betrothed from a plot to overthrow his government. I had a really hard time reading this book. I would have DNF’d it, but I actually wanted to know how it would end. 2 Stars.
Dune by Frank Herbert
Dune is the story of Paul Atreides and his time on Arrakis where the “Spice must flow”. Obviously, it’s about more than that, but I didn’t enjoy this book. I don’t connect with the authors writing style so I didn’t finish this book. 1 star.
There. I read my TBR. Sort of. I swear I tried to read Dune. I just can’t connect with it. I still want to see the movie though. I’m a glutton for punishment.
And here are my stats! I really enjoy getting to look at these now that I have discovered The Storygraph.
I read 3 adventurous books last month. And 2 mysterious? This stat will always surprise me I guess. I do like that I managed to read 2 lighthearted books last month. That’s a nice change of pace.
Speaking of pace, 2 fast and 2 medium paced books for me.
Since The Storygraph doesn’t count DNF’s, Mistborn was my highest page read, coming in at 541 pages.
I only read 2 Fantasy books last month? How is that possible? I mean, It’s still my most read genre, but still. Only 2?
And my Average rating being 3.4 stars doesn’t really surprise me. Especially given that I had two books each for 2 star and 5 star books.
Well there you have it. All the stuff I read last month! What a short list. I’m working to read more books this month. But all amount of reading is valid, so at least I’m reading!
