December 2016 Wrap Up

Screen Shot 2016-12-30 at 11.02.11 PM.png

With December coming to an end, it is time for my monthly round-up! I feel like I always open these posts in shock of how it is the end of the month but I truly cannot believe that it’s already the end of December (and the end of 2016)! Where did the time go?!

I got through 27 books this month; I feel like that is fair, especially since I was combating with all the hustle and bustle of Christmas.

What I Read: 

 Books to Look Out For in 2017:

I read quite a few books that are upcoming releases in 2017.

The Girl Before by JP Delaney (January 2017) — full review coming soon!

Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson (Janaury 2017)- full review coming soon!

Two Days Gone by Randall Silvis (January 2017)- full review coming soon!

Final Girls by Riley Sager (July 2017) — my full review is here. **I gave this one 5 stars and I am predicting this one to be HUGE in 2017. **

I also got the chance to read The Bird Tribunal by Agnes Ravatn.  This one releases in Canada TOMORROW! My review for that one is here; I loved this book!


Books to Enjoy Now:

I love getting advanced review copies but it’s not fun to read only books that are upcoming- then I have no one to discuss them with!  So, as always, I was sure to read a few neglected books that have been on my TBR shelf and get some books from my local library that were previously released

Well, there ya have it!  All the books I read in December.  I cannot wait to see what the next year will bring. 

Since this is my last post of 2016, I would like to wish all of you a Happy New Year!

Happy Reading!
