Holly: December was a strange reading month for me. The bulk of my reading was made up of re-reads, since I started re-reading the In Death series by J.D. Robb thanks to Lori and Christine, and my Julie Garwood novels thanks to our Author Spotlight. 90% of the new books I picked up this month I set aside.
I managed to read 13 books this month, but 9 of them were re-reads.
Must Love Mistletoe by Christie Ridgeway 4.75 out of 5
Rapture in Death by J.D. Robb (re-read) 4/5
Breakfast in Bed by Robin Kaye 3/5
Castles by Julie Garwood (re-read) 3/5
The Lion's Lady by Julie Garwood (re-read) 4.75/5
The Lost anthology w/ J.D. Robb, Patricia Gaffney, Mary Blayney and Ruth Langan 3.5/5
Honor's Splendour by Julie Garwood (re-read) 4.75/5
Immortal in Death by J.D. Robb (re-read) 4.5/5
If He's Sinful by Hannah Howell 3.75/5
Ransom by Julie Garwood 3.25/5
The Secret by Julie Garwood (re-read) 4.5/5
Saving Grace by Julie Garwood (re-read) 4.75/5
Glory in Death by J.D. Robb (re-read) 4.25/5
Not bad overall. My favorite read of the month was Must Love Mistletoe by Christie Ridgway. My least favorite read was Breakfast in Bed by Robin Kaye.
Rowena: For me, December wasn't a very good month either. I mean, I had a much better reading month in December than I did in November but mostly I just re-read my Julie Garwood books and called it a day with those. Like Holly, I went through a phase at the end of the month where I was picking up and putting books back because I just wasn't that into them. It had nothing to do with the books themselves but my mood. It was strange but there you go.
Here's my list of books that I read over the month of December.
Castles by Julie Garwood (4.75 out of 5)
Temptation by Leda Swann (DNF)
The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong (4 out of 5)
Prince Charming by Julie Garwood (4.75 out of 5)
The Bride by Julie Garwood (4.75 out of 5)
Getting Lucky by Carolyn Brown (1.75 out of 5)
Dark Side of Dawn by Kathryn Smith (DNF)
Haunting Beauty by Erin Quinn (3.75 out of 5)
The Wedding by Julie Garwood (4.75 out of 5)
December is always a bad reading month for me. If I am able to actually find a few minutes to sit down, my mind wanders to everything that still needs to be done.
Hard to Hold by Stephanie Tyler (4/5)
Hidden Fire by Jo Davis (4.5/5)
No Limits by Alison Kent (3/5)
Waking the Dead by Kylie Brant (4/5)
Broken by Shiloh Walker (4/5)
