It’s a new month so we’re back with a list of our Monthly Reads to share with each of you. This is where you’ll see what each of us has read and what our favorite books and our least favorite books of the month are. Check it out.
I only read three books in December. It’s pretty pathetic. I’m really hoping to read more in 2021.
Sommersgate House (Ghosts and Reincarnation #1) by Kristen Ashley | 4.5 out of 5
Lacybourne Manor (Ghosts and Reincarnation #2) by Kristen Ashley | 4.25 out of 5
Penmort Castle (Ghosts and Reincarnation #3) by Kristen Ashley | 3.5 out of 5
My favorite book of this series so far is Sommersgate House, though all the books in the series have been pretty good.
I had a fairly decent reading month. I managed to read 23 books, which is better than most other months in 2020.

My favorite read of the month was Blood Heir by Ilona Andrews. I’m so happy to be back in the Kate Daniels World. An honorable mention goes to Goblins and Snowflakes by Melanie Karsak. My least favorite was the Seduction on a Snowy Night anthology. I only read the first two stories, but neither was very good. I also thought Whiskey Holiday by Crystal Daniels was pretty bad.
December was a pretty slow reading month for me but since that was the case for most of the year, I’m not too worried about it. 2021 is already looking up for me so I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to add some books to our monthly giveaway here on Book Binge.
Here’s what I read in December:
Blood Heir (Aurelia Ryder #1) by Ilona Andrews | 4.75 out of 5
To Dream Again by Laura Lee Guhrke | 3.75 out of 5
In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren | 3.25 out of 5
Twisted Creek by Jodi Thomas | 3.25 out of 5
My favorite read of the month was Blood Heir (Aurelia Ryder #1) by Ilona Andrews because it was just a fantastic read all around. Julie and Derek being front and center makes me so happy and the Andrews writing duo really did their thing with this one. I loved it. My least favorite read of the month goes to In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren, not because it was a bad book but I just enjoyed it the least of the books that I read.
