December Wrap Up


December has been my best reading month ever. So I've had a break from school for the winter, giving me lots of time for reading and I decided about halfway through the month that, since my reading was going so well, I should just read a book for every day of the month. These short reviews are going to be even shorter because I don't think I have it in me to write 31 well-written reviews. If I already have a review up I will link it

1. The Heartbreak Cure 




I gave this book 3.5 stars.  Review


2. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue 




I gave this book 4.5 stars. This was the first audiobook I have ever listened to completion. It was so amazing and I'm so glad I decided to give audiobooks a second try because I loved this one so very much.

3. The Boys Next Door 




I gave this book 3 stars. Review

4. Twist Me




I gave this book 5 stars. This book was dark and smoldering and everything I've come to love and expect from this author.

5. Between the Blade and the Heart




I gave this book 4 stars. I am hosting a giveaway for a copy of this one! Review + Giveaway

6. All the Wrong Chords




I gave this book 2 stars. Review

7. Just a Bit Twisted




I gave this book 4 stars. It was really different and I have to say that in the best way possible. I felt it ended a bit abruptly, but I still liked it.

8. Straight Boy




I gave this book 3 stars. There was room for more, but for what it was it was pretty good.

9. Just a Bit Obsessed




I gave this book 4 stars. I can't decide if I like this as much or more than the first book. It was also very different in a good way, but I just can't decide if I like the couple more or less than the first book.

10. Keep Me 




I gave this book 4 stars. It wasn't as good as the first book, but still pretty good. Just as dark and sexy. It did have a scene in the book where I was actually ready to not read the rest of it because I was so disturbed by what was happening, but I'm glad I continued. I can also guarantee that this scene isn't what you think it is.

11. Just a Bit Unhealthy




I gave this book 4 stars. I loved this one, but I still felt like it ended too abruptly, there was a lot more that could have happened in this story and we didn't get it.

12. Wicked Beginnings




I gave this book 3.5 stars. Review

13. Hold Me 




I gave this book 5 stars. It was a finale that I could appreciate. Very well done.

14. Capture Me




I gave this book 4 stars. I didn't like seeing Nora from Yulia's point of view, it made me like her a lot less and I didn't like that. I like Nora and seeing her from this different perspective was frustrating.

15. Bind Me




I gave this book 5 stars. This series went in a different direction than what I was expecting.

16. Claim Me




I gave this book 5 stars. The love interest is a lot softer then the others this author usually writes, but I'm diggin' it.

17. Pulse 




I gave this book 5 stars. Review

18. Corded

I gave this book 3.5 stars. Wasn't as good as I was expecting, but still better than a lot of books on this list.

19. Kill Me




I gave this book 5 stars. Una is the kind of protagonist that I can get behind. She was fiery and could defend herself. I love protagonists that can protect themselves, it makes me feel more at ease.

20. Breaking Hollywood




I gave this book 4 stars. I love this author's work and she didn't disappoint with this one!

21. This is Not a Love Letter




I gave this book 4 stars. Review

22. Kiss Me




I gave this book 5 stars. They are such a power couple. I think anyone would love this duology. 

23. Heartborn




I gave this book 3 stars. It was taxing and the payoff wasn't that great.

24. Kane's Mate




I gave this book 3 stars. Better than a lot of sleazy romance novels out there.

25. Tangled in Sin




I gave this book 3 stars. It was okay. I didn't hate it, but it didn't give me exactly what I expected or wanted out of the book. 

26. Rane's Mate




I gave this book 2 stars. I hoped it would be more like the first book in the series, it was not.

27. Ava's Mate




I gave this book 2 stars. Not my cup of tea.

28. The Laird's Future Bride




I gave this book 2 stars. By this point, you're probably wondering why I keep reading books by this author and then giving them 2 stars. It's because her books start off well, I even enjoy them, but they just keep dragging on. They're each only about 140 pages and yet I feel like I'm reading a thousand page novel.

29. The Ground Rules




I gave this book 4 stars. It was very taboo, made me a bit uncomfortable at times, but I surprisingly still liked it.

30. The Ground Rules Rewritten




DNF, I was spoiled for the end of the series and what I found was so upsetting to me that I couldn't even be bothered to read this second book, but I'm counting it because I wanted to read a book for every day of December.

31. Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda 




I gave this book 5 stars. I read this book so fast, honestly, I didn't know I was going to read it until I picked it up. I just sat down and devoured it. 100% would recommend.
