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.
I finished 14 books in December, which is a lot for me!
Several of these were short Christmas reads;
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.
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. :)
