Somehow, it felt like I didn’t read much in December. Looking at the books I read, I guess I did read a normal amount of books – perhaps just not as varied as usual (I read fewer comics, and no picture books, last month).

The L.J. Smiths were rereads and I read all three books within the same day. I enjoyed Turtles All the Way Down and loved The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, and liked Runebinder and An Enchantment of Ravens a lot despite the fact that they were nothing like I imagined they would be. Princess of Alderaan was a very good read, especially before/after The Last Jedi. But the books that I loved the most in December? Strange the Dreamer and In Other Lands. These books were just SO GOOD. I have no words. I’ve always loved Laini Taylor’s writing and I don’t know what took me so long to read Strange the Dreamer, and In Other Lands made me want to look up all the Sarah Rees Brennans I’ve been interested in before but never got around to.
