Monthly Wrap Up – December 2016

Good morning and Happy New Year! Thanks to a long holiday vacation and a vicious cold, I was able to do a LOT of reading at the end of December. A lot of GOOD reading. Here is how I finished out 2016:

151. Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery, read by Rachel McAdams
152. An Unnecessary Woman by Rabih Alamaddine
153. Giant Days, Issue 21 by John Allison
154. Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett, read by Celia Imrie
155. Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodsonm read by Jacqueline Woodson
156. Pull Me Under by Kelly Luce
157. I Hate Fairyland, Issue 1 by Skottie Young
158. The Summer That Melted Everything by Tiffany McDaniel
159. Morning Glories, Volume 6: Demerits by Nick Spencer
160. Morning Glories, Volume 7, Honors by Nick Spencer
161. Morning Glories, Volume 8, Rivals by Nick Spencer
162. Morning Glories, Volume 9, Assembly by Nick Spencer
163. My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows
164. Bad Girls Throughout History: 100 Remarkable Women Who Changed the World by Ann Shen

I am going to have such a hard time picking any favorites for 2016; I’m not even sure I can pick a favorite for just December! I completely adored Brown Girl Dreaming. The Summer that Melted Everything left me feeling hot, a little bit reckless, and a whole lot amazed. And My Lady Jane completely tickled my funny bone and charmed my socks off. Then, there was Pull Me Under, which was just spellbinding. I want to read about ALL the amazing ladies in Bad Girls Throughout History, and I can’t believe I’m all caught up on Morning Glories! Equal Rites left me missing Terry Pratchett all over again. He was just so fantastic.

Here is to a great reading year and a fantastic month. I hope January (and the rest of the year) is just as great!

  1. Volume 10 is supposed to be out in January or February for Morning Glories, but that is actually like the 3rd release date for it. There must be some issues there… I just need it to come out before my big read through of the series is not as fresh in my mind! Looks like you read some great stuff in December!

  2. You have the Star Wars Lego Advent calendar too! We had a lot of fun with that this year. Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorites and I’ve been wanting to get the audio with Rachel McAdams reading. It sounds like it’d be really wonderful. You got so much great reading done! Happy New Year!
