My Favorite Books of the Month:

Iron Flame by Rebecca Yarros - Fourth Wing
was a bit of a surprise hit for me and I was so excited to get the audio for this book.  I enjoyed it just as much as the first though it did break my heart.  I can't wait for the next book!

Stalking Around the Christmas Tree by Jacqueline Frost -
This was the coziest Christmas-iest sweetest cozy and perfect for December reading!

Least Favorite Book:

Ghosts of Greenglass House by Kate Milford - I didn't dislike this but it was definitely a disappointment after how much I enjoyed the first book.

How was your December 2023 reading?  Where did you travel?


  1. I haven't broken down books read by month, tho I reached about 170 for the year. Have another good reading month.

  2. I love that you keep track each month of where you traveled in your reading. Such a fun idea. :D

  3. Great month and some fun travels.

  4. Oh so happy to hear you enjoyed Iron Flame, so many criticised it and I so much liked it and as yourself I really look forward to No. 3.

  5. Looks like you had a good reading month, Katherine! My daughter was eyeing Iron Flame at the bookstore yesterday and I told her she might want to start with the first book. Stalking Around the Christmas Tree sounds wonderful. I will have to check that one out.
