December Reading List
Let me start my saying this: A miracle has happened and I'm actually posting this in a timely manner. Well timely for me as it is within the first week after the month of reading. I don't think I've done that since August last year.
December was bleak people. I read a total of four books. Now that's just sad. I didn't do much book shopping either. I bought lots of books and DVDs for gifts, but little to none in the way of reading material for myself. Since ye olde TBR is around 300 books I guess that's a good thing.
Here's my four:
THE TREASURE by Iris Johansen
I mentioned this one while I was reading it. It returns to the same period and characters as LIONS BRIDE. As I mentioned while I was reading it, I was disappointed by the dialogue in particular. The characters all sounded the same. Of course I wouldn't miss reading it because it's Selene's and Kadar's book. Kadar remains a very interesting character for me. C
UNTAMED by Pamela Clare
This is the second book in the MacKinnon's Rangers series. This time we are following Morgan MacKinnon. I really like this time period, think Last of the Mohicans. Without personally knowing a whole lot about the time period the story appears to be well researched. It was a good read, but the male characters are much more interesting than the females. I think Amalie, the heroine, was a little wimpy. Having said that I still gave it a 'B'.
STRANGE BEDPERSONS by Jennifer Crusie
This book was originally published in 1994 and completely off my radar. At least I didn't (and don't) remember reading it way back then. It also wasn't on my bookshelves so I figured I was safe to read it. It's been re-released in hardcover so that's kind of a bummer. Here we have a conservative lawyer and a hippie do-gooder who shouldn't have anything in common. It holds up pretty well and I enjoyed it as a light read. B
MURDER GAME by Christine Feehan
I've mentioned before how much I like the Ghostwalker series. This is the seventh installment. Some of the books are better than others and this one certainly was a better one for me. Kadan is definitely an alpha hero, so if that's not your cuppa you probably won't like this one. B+
Tomorrow I hope to have up some stats for my 2008 reading year. I'm thinking this past year might be a turning point for me.
