December was a good month for this little blog. I did a bunch of organizational tasks, got caught up on reviews (most of which are scheduled for next month), and went on a hold request spree at the library. I actually have gone back to reading some YA after taking a several month hiatus and you know, when I don’t burn out on it, I actually like YA. Even contemporary. Go figure.
Dreamer’s Pool by Juliet Marillier
Stay by Allie Larkin (audio)
Can’t Buy Me Love by Molly O’Keefe
My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins
Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern
In the Works: I’m in the middle of both I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson and The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling and I’m listening to Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas on audio. These are all books that have taken some effort to get into for me, but I will finish them all. And soon! I have a couple books on hold from the library I need to get to, too, most notably Mortal Heart, the final book in the His Fair Assassin series. And once I get through some of that stuff I need to get to work on the Read Harder Challenge that I was crazy enough to take on (more on this, probably, eventually).

Wow are you reading all these books at the same time?:0
I usually am only reading two books at a time (one paper, one audio), but sometimes I bounce among books and I’ve been doing a lot of that lately!
Oh wow i honestly couldnt do that! I would loose focus so quickly haha ( audiobooks never caught my interest though)
I finished “My True Love Gave to Me” this month also. Did you have a favorite? My fav was Steph’s.
My favorites were probably Matt de la Pena, Kiersten White, Gayle Forman, and Stephanie Perkins. The best fantasy was Laini Taylor, but most of the fantasy stories were ok to not great. I wish it had all been contemps, honestly. Most of those were gems.
I agree on the fantasy. It’s hard to world build in a short story. I definitely would have preferred all contemps. But I have a contemporary bias to begin with.
