BOOKS READ IN DECEMBER









Here in the Los Angeles area it is not as cold and shivery as the image above looks nor was it in December, but it seems appropriate for some of the areas where family and friends live. It has been in the mid-70s and sunny lately and I can't remember the last time we had any precipitation.

I had fun with my reading last month, allowing myself plenty of reading time and an almost complete freedom of choice. In the books I traveled in time, across the country and around the world. I enjoyed every book!

Stats: 11 books read. 8 fiction. 7 written by women. 5 written by authors new to me. 3 historical fiction. 3 speculative fiction. 1 mystery. 1 non-fiction. 1 biography. 3 for My Big Fat Reading Project.

Favorites: Manhattan Beach, The Bedlam Stacks, The Rise and Fall of DODO, and The Revolution of Marina M.

  1. Wow you had a terrific reading month. That's a great photo of Joni on the book cover: young & determined. I look forward to your review of that and Marina M.

    1. Yes I did! It will be hard to top it. Among her many other talents, Joni was so photogenic. Now I have a bunch of reviews to post.

  2. I discovered Louise Penny in December. How have I missed her wonderful mysteries for all these years? Currently reading The Amber Room, interesting 'thriller' so far.

    1. It really was. I am writing my reviews and they will begin in a few days, after I post the Reading Group update for January. It was worth it to take some days off from the blog to just read, but now I am paying for it with all the catching up to do.

  5. Well done on reading so many books in December! My numbers really dropped as I got caught up the excitement and busyness of Christmas.

    1. That is what happened to me in November! We had a pretty quiet Christmas so I just read books.
