Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

December Wrap-Up

Claus: Legend of the Fat Man - Tony Bertauski A Christmas Carol - Charles Dickens A Christmas Tale - Austin Crawley The Elf: A Christmas Horror Short Story - I. Clayton Reynolds War on Christmas - Edward Lorn EMP - Wilson Harp Rivers of London  - Ben Aaronovitch Neverwhere: Author's Preferred Text - Neil Gaiman Water for Elephants - Sara Gruen Leviathan - Tim Curran

I finished 14 books in December, which is a lot for me!

 

Several of these were short Christmas reads;

 

2 Classics:

 

The Chimes by Charles Dickens (New to me, but one read is enough)

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens (A favorite I will probably re-read again)

 

One other re-read: A Christmas Tale by Austin Crawley

That was fun to read right after A Christmas Carol because it relates.

 

Claus by Tony Bertauski

War on Christmas by Edward Lorn

The Elf by I. Clayton Reynolds

Supernatural Short Stories for Christmas by Denise Jay

 

All new reads with a Horror element. I tried other Christmas stories but DNF'd any not listed here.

 

Also,

The Christmas Cookie Plate by Julie Schoen (Cookbook for Christmas cookies)

 

Other non-holiday stories were:

EMP by Wilson Harp

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch

Leviathan by Tim Curran

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

The Woman Who Killed Donald Trump by Sam Bower

 

ALL of these were good. Seriously, I indulged in pleasure reading and only read books I really enjoyed. I read no samples whatsoever and I was all caught up with Netgalley, though I seem to have acquired 3 more from them now.

 

It has been an excellent reading month for me. :)
