December books

I was going to just start this in the new year, but I figured I might as well start now. Each month I'll post a list of  books I've read. Even with Christmas and everything I managed to read quite a bit this month.

1. Mirror Image by Jeff Marriotte
2. Beware What you Wish by Diana Gallagher
3. Working it Out: A Journey of Love, Loss, and Hope by Abby Rike
4. High Spirits by Scott Ciencin
5. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
6. Twisted by Sara Shepard
7. The Secret Lives of Wives: What it Really Takes to Stay Married by Iris Krasnow
8. The Distant Hours by Kate Morton
9. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
10. Ruthless by Sara Shepard

Of those books I read this month, my favorite is a toss up between Working it Out, and Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

Of all the books I read this year, I don't think I can narrow down just one of my favorites so I'll list the ten I liked the most in no particular order:

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness (Amazing! The next book in this series is my most anticipated for next year)
Room by Emma Donoghue
Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
Yankee Doodle Dixie by Lisa Patton (Part of a series but great as a standalone)
Annabel by Kathleen Winters
Lies That Chelsea Handler told me by Chelsea Handler
Working it Out: A Journey of Love, Loss, and Hope by Abby Rike
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
If You Ask Me (and of Course You Won't) by Betty White
Badass by Shannen Doherty

I guess that insomnia helps with reading goals sometimes. I can't wait for the new year to start so that I can get going on all of my challenges.

I've got a head cold so I probably won't be going out to celebrate tonight so there's a chance that I may finish another book, we'll see.

I hope everyone has fun and safe New Year's celebrations.

Looks like your off to a good start love. I know being sick for the new year has been rough, but think of all the extra reading your getting done.

*hugs and kisses*

Feel better soon.

Love you.

I think I've only read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo from these books, it's definitely worth reading! And I've watched the Swedish movie about 20 times now, for some weird reason I can't stop watching it!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Everyone says the Swedish movie is better than the American version. Are you planning to see it to compare?
