Because of Nano this month, and probably a few other things, I didn't read as much as my norm. It was noticeable. I missed it. But the few I did read were awesome! (And I did get to my year's goal! 80 books!)
Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein: Rose is captured by the Germans and sent to a women's concentration camp where she makes a lot of friends and suffers unspeakable things.
And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini: How the consequences of one man's heart breaking decision affects several people throughout many years.
The Schwa Was Here by Neal Shusterman (re-read): Why is it that no one seems to notice Calvin? Antsy is going to find out!
Legend by Marie Lu: In a new society, one girl is a genius and on her way to become a military leader, and one boy is a criminal and just wants to find a cure from the plague for his family. This is what happens when their paths cross.
Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi: The sequel to Shatter Me where Juliette is now living in relative comfort in the rebellion's hideout but learns that her powers are more harmful to certain people than she thought. This changes things... many things, especially when they take another certain person hostage. Oh boy.
Guys. I loved them all. I can't pick a favorite. Can't.
Here are my plans for December:
- I have one Netgalley book to review: The Promise of Amazing
- I'm on a blog tour for Defy by Sara Larson
- Book club is Major Pettigrew, so maybe I'll re-read that.
- I want to finally get to The 5th Wave, Days of Blood and Starlight and a few more sitting here, dying.
- I started The Eye of Minds, but oh man, it's not grabbing me. I don't know if I can finish it! Ugh.
Mostly this next month I'm going to read for fun. Just whatever I'm in the mood for next. I'm sad, though, that my classics reading feel short this year. However, I doubt I'll fit any more of those in.
Next month, all the counts and recaps for the whole year! I love doing those. :)
