This month was full of:

Jane Austen, book covers galore, the Monkey King, self-acceptance, my first graphic novel read ever, sylphs, Windwalkers, Gales, olives, watercolors, quotes, recipes, bad-ass Fae, bad-ass witches, wyverns (a.k.a. draaaaagons), mice, cats, the Holocaust, ripples, feelings, finding things, a madman doctor, macabre experiments, The Codex Extinct Animalia, antiheroes, illusions, awesome epilogues, Christmastime, a curious kitty-cat, Orsk, the Beehive, pooped-on brookas, Proxys, Patrons, Guardians, escaped zoo animals … and more!

Overall thoughts:

December was a good month of reading. I read a great variety of books that included nonfiction, memoirs, graphic novels, and picture books in addition to my usual Young Adult novels. Three books were review copies, all of which I did really enjoy. I also read two horror books, believe it or not! (The Resurrectionist and Horrorstör.) I had a bunch of books that I didn’t get around to reading, sadly, a lot of which were sequels. Hopefully I’ll continue/finish some more series next month. 🙂
