One more month and it will be time to say good bye to 2016 and my weird year of reading. I didn't set any goals and honestly I feel quite unaccomplished. For December, I am keeping it small since it is December and it fills up a lot quicker with activities than I like. I'm sure I'll get more read but I will also be spending time getting some goals down for 2017.
From October's Nightstand I read:
- Applesauce Needs Sugar by Victoria Case - This was a fun memoir that was a little reminiscent of Cheaper by the Dozen except during a different period of time and Mama is a force to be reckoned with.
- Christians and Strongholds by Kim Haney - The importance of not letting bitterness take root in you life.
I forgot to read:
- Vilette - Charlotte Bronte - Whoops! I totally forgot this was on my list this month which is too bad since it probably is better than what I read.
I also read:
- Miss Dimple Disappears by Mignon F. Ballard - A cozy, fluffy mystery. I will be checking out more in the series.
- The Grantchester Mysteries by James Runcie:
- Sidney Chambers and the Shadow of Death - I am very divided on these books. On one had I like the mysteries but I get tired of dealing with all the liberal PC thinking that I have to encounter in these stories. Though there are more books I decided to call it quits.
- Sidney Chambers and the Perils of the Night - Ditto above.
- Sidney Chambers and the Problem of Evil - Ditto above.
- Wild Strawberries by Angela Thirkill - A few months ago I listened to the first book this series, High Rising which I found an enjoyable fluffy read. This book was only an okay story. The copy I had from the library had tons of layout and spelling errors in it. I honestly don't think anyone proof-read it. Oh well. This is a story that could be forgotten and life would easily go on, but if you want to look at a beautiful cover just gaze at this.
I listened to:
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - I was listening (a re-read) to this and following along with the Close Reads podcast put out by Circe Institute. They haven't finished the book yet, but I finally couldn't wait and just finished the book. On a side note: I wasn't a fan of the narrator Rosamond Pike, though I couldn't tell you why. I'm sure I have listened to this on audio before with a different narrator, but it must have been recorded in my records that were lost. Oh well!
