With the fall semester officially over, much of my December was spent reading and watching up TV. Unfortunately, I basically had a cold when I came home from school for winter break that lingered around until Christmas. It went back and forth from going away to getting worse over the course me having it, likely not being helped by my winter break job either.
In short, feeling a bit under the weather gave me more of an excuse to spend some time resting and catching up on all the books and TV shows. While I’m really content with the amount and the actual books I read, I’m also glad I spent a lot of time this month with family and best friends. I had such a great, but very busy fall semester with an already equally busy January and spring semester ahead that it’s been really nice to relax and recharge.
My December reading was primarily split between some (okay, two) fantasy conclusions and plenty of contemporary and contemporary romance.
Archenemies (Renegades #2) by Marissa Meyer | My Rating: 4/5 Stars
I’ve really enjoyed this superhero-inspired series from Marissa Meyer so far, although I feel that Archenemies suffered from middle book syndrome.
The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams | Rating: 5/5
My favorite read of the month, my love for The Bromance Book Club inspired the rest of my contemporary reading in December.
The Queen of Nothing (Folk of Air #3) | Rating: 2/5
I had such high hopes for The Queen of Nothing given my love for The Wicked King, but was unfortunately really dismayed with this trilogy conclusion.
One Day in December by Josie Silver | Rating: 5/5
The only strictly holiday read on my December TBR, I’m so glad I finally got to One Day in December because I loved it so much!
How to Build a Heart by Maria Padian (ARC) | Rating: 4.5/5
I also got a small start of my 2020 review reads with How to Build a Heart, which featured many of my favorite YA contemporary elements with its own twists.
Intercepted (Playbook #1) by Alexa Martin | Rating: 5/5
Hi my name is Haley of Fangirl Fury and sports romance is one of my new favorite genres, much in thanks to Alexa Martin’s Playbook series.
