WRAP UP: December 2013

Happy 2014! The last month of 2013 has gone by so quickly and I can’t believe it is 2014 already. I hope you all had some great holidays and I wish you all the best for 2014. But before rushing into the new year, I am going to show you what books I have read in December. I read 7 books, which I think is really great. I participated in a 24 hour read-a-thon this month as well, which sort of failed because I slept for 8 hours. But I managed to read 2 amazing books during the time that I was awake, so it is not really a fail. And they were pretty big books as well: all in all I have read 813 pages, which is actually pretty good! But these are all the books I read in December:

Across the Universe by Beth Revis

This is the first book that I finished in December. I enjoyed this book, but it wasn’t one of my favorites. It was a little too slow for me, but overall it was an enjoyable book. I initially picked it up because of the cover, which is so pretty! If you want to read my full review of this book, click here.

Gone by Michael Grant

I had heard so many amazing things about this book, and how Michael Grant is such an amazing author, so I decided to pick this book up in December. I bought this book a few months ago in Dutch, so that is the version that I read. But I did not like this book. I am not sure if that was because I read it in Dutch, or because I just didn’t like the story. Here is my full review.

Shatter me by Tahereh Mafi

After reading two dystopian books that were OK, but not fantastic, I was hesitant to pick up another dystopian. But I have heard so many people rave about this book so I decided to pick it up anyway. And I am so happy I did: this book was amazing! I absolutely loved it, and after I finished it I immediately ordered Unravel Me because I need to know how this story continues. My review of this book will be up soon!

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

After reading three dystopians in a row, I needed something different. The 5th of December I got this amazing box set of all John Green’s books, so I decided I’d start one of those books. I decided to go for An Abundance of Katherines, and I liked it. It was not as special to me as The Fault in our Stars was, but I really enjoyed it. John Green is such a smart author and I loved how he included all the nerdy details such as the anagrams and foreign words. I laughed out loud when I found the Dutch swear word ‘paardenlul’.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

I loved this book so much! I started it the evening before Christmas, and 24 hours later I finished it. And it was not like I could read all day, because we had family over all day. I was halfway this book when I went to bed on Christmas, and I decided to read a few more chapters. But all of a sudden it was 2:30 am and I finished it. That’s how much I liked this book and how captivating it is!

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

This is the first book that I read during the 24 hour read-a-thon. I started it at midnight, but I felt really sick so I decided to sleep a little more before I started. But then I woke up at 8 am so already 1/3 of the 24 hours were over. But I still decided to read as much as possible. I really liked Delirium, but sometimes it was a little predictable I thought. But I really enjoyed reading it and I didn’t have any difficulty reading this in one sitting.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

This was the last book I read in December, and it was also during the 24 hour read-a-thon. I just loved this book so much! I was really cute and the characters were so lovable. And the fact that it took place in Paris made me enjoy it so much more! I really love Paris and I really want to spend half a year in Paris to study at a university there. This book was also the perfect read for a read-a-thon because it is so easy to read and so much fun.

  1. Many of these are on my ‘read soon’ list.

    I think ‘Ironskin’ by Tina Connolly was my favourite read of December.
