December Wrap-Up // an awesome end to the year!

Hey! How are you? I hope you’re having a great day. It’s time to wrap-up December. Can you believe it? There’s only two days of the year left! December was a great reading month. I enjoyed everything I read! Let me tell you about it!

readingIn December I read a total of 6 books, a number I’m happy with! There were so big books!

40495957Heartstopper by Alice Oseman


Right at the beginning of the month I discovered this web comic and I’m so glad I did! I fell in love with it! The romance is so cute and swoon-worthy. I love the characters! I was reading this with a huge smile on my face! I’ve read everything you can find online, which is more than just the first published volume. I gave this 5 out of 5 stars! I would most highly recommend it! Do yourself a favour and check it out 😉 Here’s the link.

32620332The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

I then re-read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and I loved it! I read it earlier this year on audiobook, fell in love and bought my own copy. I re-read it this month both to enjoy the story again and to annotate the book. Evelyn Hugo is such a layered character and I’m so interested in her story. The book is so believably written that I often wanted to Google Evelyn Hugo, only to remember that the story wasn’t real. The book is also an emotional read. I was sobbing near the end. Overall, I gave this 5 out of 5 stars. This is definitely making my favourites list this year!

A while back, I wrote a post about books I’d like to re-read. This was on the list, so I decided to actually pick it up again. I forgot a lot of what happened and I was curious to see what I would think of it now. I loved it and gave it 5 out of 5 stars! I already had an attachment to the characters. I also knew what plot twists were coming, but now I noticed the build-up. That was fun. The story was high-paced and adventurous. I flew through this book even though it’s 600 pages. I even cried this time round! Would highly recommend! (The rest of the series too!)

21969786More Than This by Patrick Ness


This was on my 2018 TBR, so I fit it in just before the end of the year. I’m happy I did. This was so wholly unique and captivating. I haven’t read anything like it. The plot was different from most books, but I was on the edge of my seat the entire time, especially in parts two and three. I liked the plot twists. At times I was confused, but somehow that added to the story and made me like it more. I felt for the characters and was interested in their stories. Tomasz is such a sweetheart! I enjoyed the writing style. I’ll definitely be looking for more books by Patrick Ness as I highly enjoyed A Monster Calls as well. Overall, I gave this 4 out of 5 stars. Would highly recommend!

29093190Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl


One of my best friends has been raving about Roald Dahl’s books, so when I saw they would broadcast the movie on tv, I decided to read the book first. My friend was right, the book is so heart-warming! The story was whimsical and imaginative. I loved it! I gave the book 4 out of 5 stars and I’d definitely recommend it. I do love the movie a bit more, as I grew up watching it instead of reading the book. I have since re-watched it as well and I highly enjoyed that 🙂

12332845The Tiny Wife by Andrew Kaufman


Lastly, I read this short fable. It was an okay read. It wasn’t bad, but I really couldn’t care less about it. It was acceptably captivating and the writing style was okay. The moral was a bit cliché for my taste. Overall, this was very forgettable and I gave it 3 out of 5 stars. To be honest with you, I read this, because I wanted to end the year with a round number of books.
