Happy Holidays everyone! This month I am skipping my December TBR in favor for a late month update. For the past twenty days, I have read four books and finished two. One of which happened to be a graphic novel. I started the month off by finally finishing Stardust by Neil Gaiman, which I thought was wonderful. I gave this book a four out of five stars on Goodreads. Then I started Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz, which was awesome and I absolutely loved it! I would definitely reread this novel. (five out of five stars) Then I read a graphic novel called Saga Vol.1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series! It was also very strange in plot but in a good. The graphics were awesome and I gave this a five out of five stars. I also finished a novel for my English class called The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman, which was good. I gave this a four out of five stars. Then I read The Opposite of Loneliness: Essays and Stories by Marina Keegan. I really liked Keegan's works. Her nonfiction essays were my favorite, but her fictional stories were also wonderful. This started as reading excerpts for my English class, which turned into a personal read. Lastly, I read The Witches of the Glass Castle by Gabriela Lepore, which is about a pair of siblings who learn they have magic and they have to learn how to control their powers! They also happen to move into a glass castle, which is fricking awesome! I read this for a goodreads book club called Read With Ben, which was started by a booktuber called Benjaminoftomes, who is awesome and you should check out his videos! I'll leave his link below. This was a fast paced novel, which I really liked. I gave this a five out of five stars on goodreads.
For other news, I am participating in two read-a-thons, the XmasBooktubeAThon and the CramAThon! The XmasBooktubeAThon is a read-a-thon, which runs from Friday the 19th to Sunday the 21st! If you are paying attention, it already started and ends tomorrow at midnight. This was started by Ariel Bissett. The CramAThon is a read-a-thon running from Sunday the 21st to Wednesday the 24th, which means it starts tomorrow. This was created by Whittynovels. I might be doing the challenges and I do not have a set TBR for either, but I will finish Hemlock Grove by Brian McGreevy. I will leave links below to the announcements videos for both the read-a-thons as well as the creator's channels.
Have an Awesome Holiday!
