And these are the books that I’ve read this December:

All the Bright Places – Rating: 4 stars

Thank you to my friend, Kyla for giving this to me for my birthday. This book caught me by surprise. I loved the two perspectives that we got to look through, but I enjoyed reading through Finch’s POV more than Violets. This book made me want to wander and find places in my area to explore with someone.

Dreams of Gods and Monsters – Rating: 4 stars

I have succeeded in my goal of finishing the trilogy off before the year ended! It took a little while for me to get back into the world after reading the second instalment months ago. This book had the same unique characters, insanely rich world, and beautiful romance between Karou and Akiva. It was a beautiful ending.

My True Love Gave to Me – Rating: 3.5 stars

This collection of stories is perfect for the holiday season. Although they were cute and fun to read, I genuinely liked about 3 or 4 of the stories. My favourites would have to be from Stephanie Perkins, Rainbow Rowell, Gayle Forman, and Kiersten White. If you’re looking for something light and breezy to read, you should pick this book up.

The Lightning Thief – Rating: 4.5 stars

My plan is to finish the Percy Jackson series and The Heroes of Olympus in time for the release of the Trials of Apollo. It was just like how I remembered it when I first read this book in the 7th grade. TLT was action packed, hilarious, full of mythology, and great characters. Percy is so great.

The Sea of Monsters – Rating: 4 stars

I enjoyed SoM as well, but not as much as TLT. I kind of wish that the book was a little bit longer. I love how each book is a new quest that builds up into the greater story. Percy, Annabeth, and Grover are as fun as ever in this new adventure. We are introduced into some new characters, backstory, and even more mythology. I love where this series is headed.

And now for my January Haul. These are the books that I acquired this month: Continue reading
