Monthly Reads: December 2021

Posted January 5, 2022 by Casee in Features, Giveaways | 6 Comments

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 had a pretty good reading month in December. I read and listened to some really good books.

The Wedding by Julie Garwood (reread)(audio) | 5 out of 5
Wicked Ride (Realm Enforcers #1) by Rebecca Zanetti | 3.75 out of 5
Wicked Edge (Realm Enforcers #2) by Rebecca Zanetti | 4.5 out of 5
Wicked Burn (Realm Enforcers #3) by Rebecca Zanetti | 4.25 out of 5
Hold on to Hope by A.L. Jackson (reread)(audio) | 4.5 out of 5
Wicked Kiss (Realm Enforcers #4) by Rebecca Zanetti | 4.25 out of 5
Wicked Bite (Realm Enforcers #5) by Rebecca Zanetti | 4.75 out of 5

My absolutely favorite of December is Wicked Bite by Rebecca Zanetti. I loved Bear and Nessa. They were two amazing characters. I also really enjoyed listening to audiobooks. I love The Wedding by JG & the audio just made it that much better.


I only managed to finish 11 books in December and every single one of them was a re-read. Reading slumps are the worst.

Fairytale Come Alive (Ghosts and Reincarnation #4) by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4.25 out of 5
One Fell Sweep (Innkeeper Chronicles #3) by Ilona Andrews (audio) (reread) | 4.5 out of 5
Sweep of the Blade (Innkeeper Chronicles #4) by Ilona Andrews (reread) | 4.5 out of 5
Sweep with Me (Innkeeper Chronicles #4.5) by Ilona Andrews (reread) | 4 out of 5
Getting Read (Getting Some #3) by Emma Chase (audio) (reread) | 4.25 out of 5
Sweet Dreams (Colorado Mountains #2) by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4.25 out of 5
Own the Wind (Chaos #1) by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 4.25 out of 5
The Secret (Highlands’ Lairds #1) by Julie Garwood (audio) (reread) | 5 out of 5
Alpha & Omega (Alpha & Omega 0.5) by Patricia Briggs (reread) | 5 out of 5
Cry Wolf (Alpha & Omega #1) by Patricia Briggs (reread) | 4.25 out of 5
Repeat by Kylie Scott (audio) (reread) | 4.5 out of 5
Little Fire (Warriors of the Five Realms #1) by Hollee Mands | DNF

I’m not going to list a favorite or least favorite this month since they were all re-reads. I wanted to like the Mands novel, but the writing was very frustrating.

    I read 22 books in December. My absolute favorite was FLOAT PLAN by Trish Doller, about a woman grieving the suicide of her fiancé and trying to sail the Caribbean in a sailboat he had refurbished. It was s good it made my list of Favorite Books of 2021. I didn’t read a book in December that I disliked or had to DNF, which was nice.

      I read Float Plan some time ago and enjoyed it, too.

      Thanks again for your recommendation of the Cate C. Wells book below, @DDD.

    December favorites included The Best Gift by Eli Easton, The Tyrant Alpha’s Rejected Mate by Cate C. Wells, and A Marvellous Light by Freya Marske.

    I’ve no least favorite to mention as I abandoned books that didn’t speak to me.

    My favorite for the month was After Dark With the Duke by Julie Anne Long. I didn’t have a least favorite.

    I mostly read holiday anthologies and there were a couple stories that were a waste of time. I also read After Dark With the Duke – Julie Anne Long’s latest and I loved it.
