December Wrap Up

I decided to do a wrap up this month and show you what I’ve read. If I did a review then there will be a link attached for you to go check out. Otherwise I’ll just tell you what I thought.


  1. I FINALLY started the Grisha Trilogy. Of course I loved it. I’m team darkling. I’ve already been spoiled for the ending BUT I can still dream. I never thought I would hate a “childhood best friend” character. But dang if Mal doesn’t make me want to punch him then push him down a hill. I’ve already ordered the next two with a gift card I recieved. BWAHAHA

2. I was reccomended this book by two different booktubers who compared it to Death Note. I will say that I enjoyed it. Not as much as Death Note but I did enjoy it. The story had some great internal and external conflict. The story line was catching. I half expected this one thing to happen and it didn’t. I won’t be shouting Monster from the rooftops but if you like a little thriller manga then I suggest you check it out.

Glorious Graphics Review


3. Next I read volumes 2 & 3 of Saga. I own the first one and read it this past summer. I highly recomend this graphic for anyone who likes character journeys, diversity, and/or to laugh and cry while reading the same work. Saga will go down as a favorite.



4. I read When by Victoria Laurie. A girl who can read everyone’s death date off their forehead gets herself tangled up the town’s serial murder case.


When by Victoria Laurie


5. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness for the Once Upon A Read Along book club. The movie is coming out January 6th so I was super excited to read this. This is about a boy who is visited by a monster every night. The monster tells him three stories and slowly befriends Connor. I highly reccomend picking this book up, reading, then heading out to the movie.


6. I read vol 2 of Giant Days. This volume was pretty good. I love these girls and their daily like unfolding. I wasn’t fully in love with it due to some unnecessary drama but I did enjoy it.



7. Finally I read Lumberjanes vol 4. Once again I wasn’t as impressed with this volume as the previous ones. But I did enjoy it a lot. The fantasy part is kicked up a notch. And Jo struggles with some inner feelings when the LumberJanes are accompanied by Barney on their latest escapade. He is having a hard time fitting in with the guys and doesn’t feel like he belongs there.

    Oooh you make me really want to read Shadow and Bone! I’ve had an ebook copy for ages but just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. I guess my 2017 is already growing!
    Happy New Year! 🙂

    Oh, the Grisha trilogy is one of my all-time favorites ❤ Glad you enjoyed Shadow and Bone! The Darkling definitely is one of the best characters ever 🙂 I have A Monster Calls on my shelf but I still have to read it. I know it'll be amazing but I keep procrastinating because I feel it will be heartbreaking 😉 Happy New Year!

      A Monster Calls was def heartbreaking. I almost cried, and I rarely cry when reading. But I’m excited for the movie, and I’m trying to not let myself see movies if the book is on my tbr. I hope you enjoy it!

    Yay Shadow and Bone!! I’m happy to hear you liked it. I never really loved Mal either, but did love the series. I’ve been seeing Saga around everywhere. I’ve never read a graphic novel, but I might have to check that one out.

    Thanks for linking up on Saturday Situation!
