December is always a fun month around the blogosphere because everyone does there yearly wrapups. I love reading my favorite bloggers best of lists because that means I can add many more books to my must read lists! If you haven't yet, please do check out my Favorite Covers of 2011 and my Favorite Reads of 2011!
In December I wrapped up all of my reading challenges. Now I had signed up for 15 so there were a couple I didn't quite finish but I manage to complete most so I was thrilled! Naturally, I've signed up for some more this year :)
As for my December reads, I managed seven books in December. Not my best reading month of the year, but considering how busy December is, I am pretty pleased with my progress. That made my total for the year 97 which is by far the most I've ever read in one year! My reading started off a little rough but it ended on a high note. Over all here's how it broke down:
- Sadly one book was given a D rating this month: A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley.
- Two books were given a C rating this month: The Mistress's Revenge by Tamar Cohen and The Printmaker's Daughter by Katherine Govier.
- Then I started to climb out of my reading slump and had two Grade B reads: From Notting Hill With Love ... Actually by Ali McNamara and Christmas Jars by Jason F. Wright.
- I ended my December on a high note with two Grade A reads so no complaints from me!: Dreaming in English by Laura Fitzgerald and More Than Words Can Say by Robert Barclay.
All in all, if I had to pick a favorite read from December it would have to be More Than Words Can Say by Robert Barclay. What was your favorite read in December?
