My December 2023 Reads

Today is December 30th, and it’s almost time to say goodbye to 2023. 

I read /listened to 10 books in December: Eight audiobooks and two physical books. Of those eight audiobooks three were short stories.

The books are listed below in the order I finished them:

The Inmate by Freida McFadden- 4 stars
If You Could See the Sun
by Ann Liang- 4 stars
Skipping Christmas
by John Grisham- 3 stars
by Christina Dalcher- 4 stars
Do Not Open
by Kiersten Modglin- 5 stars
The Gift
by Freida McFadden- 3 stars
Her Silent Bones
by Pamela Fagan Hutchins- 3.5 stars
The Pram
by Joe Hill-3 stars
Ankle Snatcher
by Grady Hendrix- 4 stars
by Sarah Davis- 4 stars

My favorite read was Do Not Open. It’s like Misery but on crack! And with listening to this book, Kiersten Modglin is becoming an author I will most likely read anything she writes now!

My ‘least favorite’ was Skipping Christmas. This was a book club read and the only reason I read it again. I had read it many years ago and was not impressed with it. It also became a movie Christmas with the Kranks that I also did not enjoy.

My November 2023 Reads

Today is November 30th and I am sharing with you what I read this month. I listened to four audiobooks for November. The books are listed below in the order I finished them:

The Woman in Me by Britney Spears- 4 stars
The Name Drop by Susan Lee- 4 stars
Forget Me Not by Julie Soto- 2 stars
Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros- 4 stars

My favorite read was The Name Drop. It was a sweet, cute, and fun YA read!

My ‘least favorite’ was Forget Me Not.   This one was a buddy read with my friend Beccie, who ended up DNF’ing it.  Maybe one day we will have a successful buddy read!

My October 2023 Reads!

We are now in November, Thanksgiving is just THREE weeks away and then Christmas will be here before we know it! This is just crazy! Time really does fly by as you get older!

I read six books in total for October: Four on audio, one in Kindle, one in paperback. The books are listed below in the order I finished them:

The Only Girl in Town by Ally Condie- 2.5 stars
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt- 4 stars
The Night House by Jo Nesbø- 3 stars
The Night of the Sleepover by Kerry Wilkinson- 3.5 stars
Triumphant! One Woman’s Journey from Prison to Purpose by Jessica Roberts- 4 stars
Kindred by Octavia Butler- 4.5 stars

My favorite read was Kindred. This was actually my third time listening to it.  This time it was a book club read ( My suggestion!).

My ‘least favorite’ was The Only Girl in Town. It just ended up being very different from what I thought it was going to be.
