Wrap Up: December 2021

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!

5 stars:

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.

4 stars:

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.

3 stars:

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.

2 stars:

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.

1 star:

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!
