Hello readers and welcome to the last wrap-up of 2021!
Have you received some books for Christmas? I have received from myself (XD) some new books, you can find them on my Instagram page.
Mid-December I finally hit my goal for the Goodreads challenge, and I’ve finished the year with a total of 135 books read.
In December I’ve read a total of 13 books, no DNF!
Finally, 3 books in a month have received 5 stars: The selkie scandal is a lovely prequel/spin-off to The Lady Jewel diviner series, where we can enjoy the company of Jaq and Lord Beresford, and his jam, of course; Caos sotto il vischio (The lady’s guide to mistletoe and mayhem) is a lovely historical romance set in Scotland, full of laughter, kisses and a happy ending; Santa Inc. was a surprise since it’s really underrated but is a perfect story for Christmas, full of hope and the magic of Christmas.
Another surprise this month was Grace’s ghost, a heartwarming story about a lonely girl who befriend the ghost of her town.
Snowspelled has a beautiful cover, an intelligent and strong female MC, elves and romance.
The case of the missing hippo and Tiny T.rex and the impossible hug are 2 children/middle-grade books that all children would love. Look how cute and colourful are the covers!
Champagne widows is a historical fiction about Veuve Cliquot, the widow who has “invented” and commercialized the brand of champagne Veuve Cliquot. Really interesting if you like champagne and French history.
Nessie and all the water “monsters” are my favorite cryptid, and that’s why By the silver water of Lake Champlain has received 2 stars and not only one, because the story is inconclusive.
The cover of Mrs. Claus and the Santaland Slayings is totally festive and Christmassy, but I didn’t like the treatment received by Mrs. Claus by her husband’s family. They’re all mean.
I really liked the middle part of Moo, but not the beginning or the ending.
Hello, it’s always me, not liking a super loved and hyped book like A dowry of blood. But I love the cover.
The main reason for the 1-star rating of The legend of the pumpkin thief is that is printed very poorly, I can’t comprehend how they (book depository) can sell a book like this. It’s missing a word on the cover too!!
And that’s all, I wish all of you a Happy New Year, full of beautiful books and adventures, see you again in a couple of days with the best and the worst of 2021!
