Well December was one of the best reading month I had in ages and it was a great way to finish up the year. Two books I read this month ended up on my favorite list of 2016 so yay! 😀
- Clarkesworld #121 ★★★★
- An Accident of Stars (The Manifold World #1) by Foz Meadows ★★★★★
- Succubus Shadows (Georgina Kinacaid #5) by Richelle Mead ★★★
- Succubus Revealed (Georgina Kinacaid #6) by Richelle Mead ★★★
- Star Wars Aftermath: Life Debt (Aftermath #2) by Chuck Wending ★★★1/5
- The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell ★★★★
- Europe in Winter (Fractured Europe Sequence #3) by Dave Hutchinson ★★★★★
- Dracula by Bram Stoker ★★★
- Interzone #267 ★★★★
- The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe by Kij Johnson ★★★
- The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth #1) by N.K. Jemisin (REREAD) ★★★★★
I’m glad I finally finished the Georgina Kincaid series by Richelle Mead, it’s a fun urban series that I started back in 2015 and that I just wanted to finally finish. It’s definitely not the best UF out there but since at the beginning of December, I wanted to read lighter things, it fitted my mood perfectly!
I will do mini reviews on The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell and Life Debt by Wending in the next couple of weeks because, even though I don’t have a ton of things to say about them, I really enjoyed them both and I want to talk about them a bit.
Dracula by Bram Stoker was… interesting ? I’m glad I finally read it but it wasn’t what I expected at all. Overall, it was an enjoyable read even if, it was a bit ridiculous at times. Especially the parts where all the characters want to solve every problem with some brandy. Anyway, I might revisit this one in a couple of years but for now I’m not that impressed.
Favorite Reads of the month
It’s always nice to finish the year with some fantastic books! 😀
I already mentionned this anthology in a recent post but it was disappointing, a couple of stories were good but most of them were just meh (even Ken Liu’s story!). The ideas behind the anthology and the line-up were excellent but it just didn’t deliver. I might go back to this in the future, but definitely not right now!
Currently Reading & TBR
I reread The Fifth Season in preparation for The Obelisk Gate so I’ll definitely read this one this month while I remember well the events of the first book. I am currently reading Rosewater by Tade Thompson and so far I have to say that I’m impressed, it’s very good! I don’t have any other plans for this month, I might try to make an headstart on some reviews books that are coming in February for once! 😉
