A Month of Reading ~ December

I can not believe I am writing my final reading wrap up of 2015. I genuinely can’t believe that in just two days it’s going to be 2016, where has the year gone? Soon enough I’m going to be posting my 2015 favourites and 2016 bookish goals, but before I do that I want to let you know how my last month of December was reading wise.

Twilight Saga ~

At the end of November I had the sudden urge to reread the twilight books, which I haven’t done since I was 13. This month I finished of rereading the rest of the series. I really enjoyed reading them as they brought back so many memories.

The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey ~

This book was so beautiful. I read it for the cramathon readathon and I flew through it in just two days. This book is about an elderly couple who have always wanted a child but unfortunately their baby was stillborn. They decide to move away from the prying eyes of a city and settle on a farm in the Alaskin woods, living off what they grow. One winter they make a snow child out of snow, which appears to have come to life when they notice a child watching them. This book was raw and emotional and I really loved the characters, I gave it five stars.

My True Love Gave To Me ~

This is a collection of short, unrelated stories all of which take place around Christmas time. I really enjoyed this, it made me feel so festive and if you haven’t read it, I would recommend reading it the week leading up to Christmas next year, because it’s the perfect book to get you excited for Christmas.

A boy Called Christmas by Matt Haig ~

This is a new Christmas novel that just came out this year from an author I remember reading in primary school. A Boy Called Christmas follows the tale of how a young selfless boy became Santa Claus. This book  was so magical and festive and while it’s definitely aimed for a younger audience I really enjoyed the story, especially as a light Christmas eve read.

And Then There Were None ~ Agatha Christie

I completely failed at the Booktubeathon this year and unfortunately this was the only book I managed to read… and I wasn’t even able to finish it in the readathon. However I did really enjoy this book, it is the first Agatha Christie novel I’ve read and I got exactly what I was expecting, a classic ‘who did it?’ novel and it was nothing short of amazing. Next on the to do list, watch the new BBC adaptation!

So, those are all of the books I read during December. Let me know what books you read yourselves and if you’ve read any of these!

Thanks for Reading
