Clearly I was on drugs and/or gained superpowers in December, and also, the quarter ended.
Not If I See You First by Eric Lindstrom: I liked it, but it needed to slow down and take a breather.
Damage Done by Amanda Panitch: All kinds of messed up but also very, very well written.
This Raging Light by Estelle Laure: Mostly meh and a little headache inducing.
I read a lot of books in December, and a lot were good--and I read so many and so many contemporaries that I need time to process all of them and really get an opinion on each one--but I think I'll go with Everything, Everything. I have very few criticisms for this book, and they're really just ways in which I wish the plot went differently. But I loved the format and the writing and the story and how engaging it was--plus, That Cover--so voila!
Book Outlet + Christmas = More Books Than Shelf Space (as if I already had any).
I shared the ten debut novels I'm anticipating most in the new year, my favorite authors I read for the first time this year, the ten most underrated novels of the year, my wishlist for Santa, and the fifteen novels I'm most excited for in 2016.
I interviewed Heidi Heilig on her debut and highly anticipated novel The Girl from Everywhere!
I went to book club, where we discussed Banana Yoshimoto's The Lake and did a fun Secret Santa (but the picture never got posted on our Facebook group)!
School will be starting up again, which means I probably won't have as much reading--or blogging--time. But I'm thinking of making a bullet journal (or something of the sort) to help me keep track of everything and stay not a schedule, per se, but like on a certain path that balances reading and blogging and school and all that fun stuff. I also don't want to stress about any of it.
January 5, 2016: I do believe a lot of this takes place on a boat and that is super interesting.
January 26, 2016: It's by Michael Grant, what else is there to know?
January 26, 2016: I'm a big fan of The Selection series (though I still need to read The Heir and Happily Ever After), and it'll be interesting to read something new from Kiera Cass.
