It was lovely to return to reading in December; I was able to finish five books and start two more. Not bad, especially considering how much writing I got done, plus the bustle of the holidays!
- The Cuckoo’s Calling by J.K. Rowling
- The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson
- Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan
- The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
- The Moslems Are Coming by Azad Essa
- The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
- The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
I didn’t get to Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh or Pardonable Lies by Jacqueline Winspear, but I hope to do so this month or next.
In addition to finishing The Happiness Project and The Ocean at the End of the Lane, I’m also planning to read:
The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro
This is the next pick for my fiction book club. It’s not a book I would have picked up on my own, which is a shame–I’ve already started it, and I am utterly enthralled.
The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen
I’ve been wanting to read Sarah Dessen, so I’m excited to pick up her latest book. It’s considered new adult, a genre I’m very interested in, so I’m excited to give it a try.
Wait for You by Jennifer L. Armentrout
This book, the first in a series, is also a new adult title–noticing a trend? Armentrout originally self-published this title, but then it was picked up by a Harper Collins imprint. I’m generally a big fan of Harper, and I love the idea of an author hitting the best-seller list on her own, so this book already has two marks in its favor.
Have you read any of these? Which should I pick up first?
