It’s time to do my wrap-up and TBR post.
I had 5 books on my December TBR and guess how many of them I read? The answer is two *hides in the corner*
I am such a mood reader so unless there’s a new release that I’ve been waiting to read for months, I usually fail to complete my TBR. :p Didn’t stop to create another TBR though.
Here’s how I did.
My December TBR:
- The Emperor’s Soul (Brandon Sanderson)
- Red Rising (Pierce Brown)
- These Shallow Graves (Jennifer Donnelly)
- Cress (Marissa Meyer)
- UnDivided (Neal Shusterman)
What I Actually Read:
Warbreaker (Brandon Sanderson)
How does one resist a book about a talking sword and a sarcastic god?
The Emperor’s Soul (Brandon Sanderson)
Another innovative magic system with rich world building and a great MC. All in less than 200 pages. Probably my favorite novella ever.
Red Rising (Pierce Brown)
Great dystopian representation with action-packed story. Review posted here
The Rithmatist (Brandon Sanderson)
Really fun combination of whodunnit plot, steampunk setting, and killer magic system that plays out like a strategy game. Review coming soon.
Steelheart (Brandon Sanderson)
Brandon’s attempt at urban fantasy is enjoyable albeit not that original. I quite possibly underrated this one due to a very high expectation (it’s his own fault for writing such great books really).
Dangerous Girls (Abigail Haas)
The only thriller I got to read in December turned out to be quite fantastic indeed. I will certainly read another Abigail Haas’ books.
Illuminae (Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff)
The hype delivers!
You can probably see what happened there…
- Truthwitch (Susan Dennard)
- The Grownup (Gillian Flynn)
- Firefight (Brandon Sanderson)
- Uprooted (Naomi Novik)
- Sanctuary Bay (Laura J. Burns and Melinda Metz)
I also want to read a contemporary and a non-fiction, but I haven’t decided what. Please let me know if you have any recommendation because I really need help on this one. You can leave me a comment or talk to me on twitter (link below).
Until next time!
