Casee: December kicked my butt. The only words I read were out of a cookbook. The beginning of 2017 was a great reading time for me, so here’s hoping that 2018 is the same.
Holly: I logged 24 reads in December. I cheated a bit because a lot of those were short stories. I don’t care. I’m counting them anyway.

My favorite read of the month was Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs. I love Charles and Anna. My least favorite was Judgment Road by Christine Feehan. I’m still deciding if my feelings for the book were marred by my expectations for Feehan as an author.
Rowena: December was such a busy month for me. I had a family emergency that kept me up nights and full of nerves that my reading suffered because of it. Things are a lot better now but I only managed to read 6 books in the entire month. Here’s what I read.
Love, Life and the List by Kasie West | 4.5 out of 5
Taking a Chance (Whisper Creek #6) by Maggie McGinnis | 3.75 out of 5
North to You (Journey to the Heart #1) by Tif Marcelo | 4 out of 5
An English Bride in Scotland (Highlanders #1) by Lynsay Sands | 3.75 out of 5
The Matchmaker’s Playbook (Wingmen Inc #1) by Rachel van Dyken | 3.5 out of 5
Complicated by Kristen Ashley | 4 out of 5
My favorite read of the month is Love, Life and the List by Kasie West. It’s a contemporary young adult novel and I thought it was a cute and sweet romance.
My least favorite read of the month goes to The Matchmaker’s Playbook by Rachel van Dyken. The hero in that book was shallow and he was conceited and not at all appealing (outside of his gorgeous face and body) and I didn’t feel there was any real growth to his character so that was disappointing. I’m curious to see how it’s portrayed by Passionflix once the movie comes out.
