What I Read: December 2017

January 2, 2018


Despite the craziness of the last month of the year, I was able to read four novels in December, bringing my tally for 2017 up to a cool 50 books read.

I should call December (and the end of November) the month of Christina Lauren, because I read four of their books in succession–Autoboyography being my first and favorite. That book deserves it’s only special review, that’s how much I loved it.

But, I digress.

What I read in December:

  • BEAUTIFUL BASTARD by Christina Lauren  — My fourth CL book, this one fell a little flat for me. BUT, it was their first book, and I know they’ve come a long way since then.
  • ROOMIES by Christina Lauren — I thought this book was such a feel good novel. I read it pretty quickly as I was just dying to see how it ended.
  • DATING YOU/HATING YOU by Christina Lauren — I enjoyed DY/HY (not nearly as much as Autoboyography) but it wasn’t the storyline that got me (even though it was a good read); it was the writing. The writing was outstanding! I found myself stopping every few pages to mark passages that I loved, that I thought were so well-written that I needed to note them.
  • UNSOUL’D by Barry Lyga — Completely unexpected… I’m not sure how I even came across this novel, but I’m glad I did. It was thrilling, sexy and dirty in just the right way. Now I’m going to have to check out more of his books!

In Progress

Here’s what I’m currently reading:

  • The Roommate by Kendall Ryan — I’ve never read anything by KR and decided that I needed to change that.
  • The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks — My December BOTM pick that is quickly pulling me in.

Coming Up

  • Amanda Wakes Up by Alisyn Camerota — In the mood for a light read, I’ve got this one on hold at the library.
  • This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab — Let’s just say I’m trying to expand my genre horizons.
