Happy New Year everyone! My year in review will be out in a few weeks, but for now, let's recap December:
What I Read:
Under the Whispering Door by: T.J. Klune: 4/5 stars
A Minor Chorus by: Billy-Ray Belcourt: 4/5 stars
Moon of the Crusted Snow by: Waubgeshig Rice: 4/5 stars
mitêwâcimowina: Indigenous Science Fiction and Speculative Storytelling edited by: Neal McLeod: 4/5 stars
Favourite book: This month, every book had the same rating! So, how did I choose a favourite? I went with Moon of the Crusted Snow, because that book could have easily been a five star read if not for the ending. A review will be soon to come. It was a great apocalyptic book by an Indigenous author, but ugh, I just wish the ending had some finishing touches.
What I Blogged:
I posted a list of Books I Have My Eye On To Buy in the New Year. This was a fun list to write as it includes some picks that have been on my wishlist for a while, and some new releases I am excited about.
Favourite Posts of the Month:
Sofia reads Other People's Favourite Books
Roberta Returns to Blogging
I noticed that my blogging reading list has become a little thin since people are taking hiatuses, and some have left the blogging world. So, this is an appeal. If you have a bookish blog recommendation, please send them my way!
Christmas was good, albeit the weather was kinda stressful. We got slammed with a snowstorm on December 23rd, and we weren't sure if we were going to be able to make it back home to spend time with family at all. Luckily the roads cleared just enough for us to make it home by Christmas Eve, and we had a lovely time.
I was really happy seeing my family open up the presents I gave them, and overall everyone (including myself) were very grateful for the gifts received. Now I am preparing for the New Year, in which I return to being a teaching assistant for my university. I'm excited for the new position, which will be a welcome distraction from working on PhD applications. New Year, New Changes! That's for certain.
So, that was my December! How was yours?
