Books I Read in December

Happy last book wrap up of 2020! I can’t believe we made it y’all. As of this post, I read SEVENTY books in 2020! That’s an insane amount of reading, and I definitely have Libby to thank for that. I’ll be posting a full list of ALL the books I read in 2020 in the new year with a full breakdown including what format I read the most of, BIPOC, and more. But for now, here’s what I read in December. Let’s get started!

Books I Read in December

one | The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware — E-Book
Not all is as it seems at Heatherbrae House, and Rowan has stepped right in the middle of it. When a mysterious ad for a live-in nanny comes her way, Rowan can’t turn down the opportunity. But when she meets the girls she’ll be taking care of and discovers the high-tech functionality of the house, something feels a little off. Writing to a lawyer from prison, Rowan is desperate to prove that she didn’t kill anyone – it was all a misunderstanding. This book will have you on the edge of your seat wondering if ghosts and ghoulies are real or if it’s just your imagination. 5/5 Stars

two | Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel — E-Book
The world is over as we know it. The Georgia Flu has ravaged the entire world, and everyone who survives must figure out a way to continue living in this new, post-apocalyptic world. A group of performers decides to band together to form a traveling symphony that performs Shakespeare’s plays for anyone that will watch. Flipping between present-day and the days before the Georgia Flu attacked, Emily St. John Mandel crafts a perfectly interwoven story that expertly shows how everyone is interconnected and your decisions today can impact someone else’s tomorrow. 5/5 Stars

three | Eat a Peach by David Chang — Audiobook
David Chang is a Michelin star restaurant owner with 15 locations across the globe. He has his own Netflix show, podcast, and over 1 million followers. But he wasn’t always this successful. He wasn’t always this confident in his abilities. In his memoir, Chang takes readers from his early childhood where he never felt like he was enough to his early years in opening his restaurant to failed exploits and raving successes. 3/5 Stars

four | The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab
Addie LaRue made a deal with the devil 300 years ago, and no one has been able to remember her since. She has survived wars, the invention of planes, famines, and so much more without anyone remembering her name. Until she runs into a boy in a bookshop one day and everything changes. He remembers her. The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is beautiful and, of course, heartbreaking. It reminds readers to live every day as if it were their last and to never be afraid to stand in the storm. 5/5 Stars

five | One Day in December by Josie Silver — E-Book
Laurie spots him from the bus window. He’s waiting outside, and she wills him to come on board, but the universe has other plans. She spends a whole year looking for him, only to find him at her very home, as her roommate and best friend’s boyfriend. What ensues is nearly ten years of near misses and a topsy-turvy love triangle you can’t help but root for. 4/5 Stars

Happy reading,
