I just realized I didn't make a December Wrap-Up and January TBR post and I am very disappointed at my past self. So I'm just gonna do a little throwback and tell you what were the books that I read in December. So, I read: Year of Mistaken Discoveries, The Martian, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, and the Disney Book (that I got for Christmas). I kinda still want to review some of these books, so as soon as I have time I'll get on with it.
Anyways, this month I read 6 books (I know that there are only 5 books in the photo, relax) and I'm really impressed with myself! My goal this year is to read 50 books and I feel that I started it really well. I've only reviewed two of these books, but I'll try to review the others as soon as possible.
1- Neverwhere (2.5/5)
2- Proxy (3.5/5)
Check my review here.
3- Leviathan (4/5)
I think I'm gonna write a review of Leviathan so I won't tell you my thoughts right now. Just know that it's a well written book, but I didn't love it or anything. I might be leaning more on the 3.75 mark even though I only give half or full marks.
4- A Prince Among Dragons (4/5)
My Creative Writing teacher actually wrote this book and it's pretty good. It's a middle grade story and although it's pretty short, it was really interesting. It is a historical story and I learned some things from that time that I didn't know before. Some things got me really frustrated (but I won't spoil what they are). The characters are great and the whole dragon thing is pretty cool. I am excited to read the next one!
5- A Monster Calls (5/5)
Check my review of A Monster Calls here.
6- Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Old School (4/5)
If you know me, you'll probably know that I love Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The books are hilarious and relatable, and I love the way it's formatted. The drawings really add on to the story. This book was okay, it wasn't my favourite and it definitely wasn't as funny as some of the other ones. But I enjoyed it, and I super recommend it. It doesn't matter what age you are. Seriously.
All the Light We Cannot See
I've heard great things about this book. And I have a friend who doesn't even like reading that much, and she is currently reading this book and she is loving it!
Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where he works as the master of its thousands of locks. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind and her father builds a perfect miniature of their neighborhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great-uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel.
In a mining town in Germany, the orphan Werner grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments, a talent that wins him a place at a brutal academy for Hitler Youth, then a special assignment to track the resistance. More and more aware of the human cost of his intelligence, Werner travels through the heart of the war and, finally, into Saint-Malo, where his story and Marie-Laure’s converge.
Honestly, that's the only book I have in mind right now. I'm planning to read at least three books this month. And one of them is going to be for my Book Club (We haven't chosen it yet tho). If there's a book you think I should read, comment bellow!
