Welcome to my final book haul of 2017! Abiding by the rules, I have gotten some pretty nice series. If you have seen my November wrap up, you probably noticed that I read a lot of stand-alone novels and self help books. Because of this, I didn’t get to read as many series as I hoped.
stand alone novels
A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis
This author stole my heart, seriously. I just want to read all her work. But, I think McGinnis writes about sexual abuse in some form or another in her books. To me, she approaches these issues with sensitivity yet with frankness. A Madness so Discreet sounds somewhat Holmes-ian, with a touch of darker tone.
In a Handful of Dust by Mindy McGinnis
This a sequel/companion to Not a Drop to Drink. My understanding is that the hero in this novel is different but it is set in the same world. Post-apocalyptic and poised to make me think hard about humanity and my values, I am keen to read this one very soon.
new series: beginnings
Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
I used to have a copy of this series, and then I gave it away because of issues with miscommunication. Anyway, I remember loving the series so much. I’m slowly making my way with acquiring it. I love Sophie, the main character, and her roommate Victoria. In fact, I still remember much of their story together. I miss them.
Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins
This one was really popular for a while. I like this author’s humor and characters. So, I am excited to see what the hype is about. All I know is that involves a southern belle. I am here for it.
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
Sisters fighting each other for the throne. Two of the sisters have power, one doesn’t. Who will survive and become queen?
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
I read this book ages ago. Then, I felt ashamed because of the reviews on it. I love this story, and I want to reread it in Halloween or even in the winter-y months. I’ll always like the main character, his friends, and my dear ghost Anna.
What did you plan on getting for December? Have you heard of any of the books on my list? Share your thoughts in comments.
