This month is dedicated to Mrs. B’s dead grandmother. Her passing away allowed me to take some vacation time and while Mrs B went to a funeral, I read books. Lots and lots and LOTS of books. 20 of them to be exact and 7665 pages. * stifles really inappropriate comments* ….hahahahaaa…ahem…. I also got sick with bronchitis and had to take off from work on the doctor’s orders, so that helped my reading time as well.
My average for the month was 3.28. That was DOWN quite a bit from last month. Not that I had a bunch of bad reads, more of just a lot of middle of the roaders.
Light by M. John Harrison. 1star. This book stank worse than all of the vomit scenes that were in it.
Crossover by Joel Shepher. 1/2star, never good.
Skinner by Neal Asher, which was 5stars.
The Sea Watch by Adrian Tchaikovksy. Also 5stars. Two 5stars in one month, whoo!
Orb Sceptre Throne by Ian Esslemont came in at 4.5stars.
Put away 2 more Oh My Goddess! volumes. Only 44 more to go *wink*
The Breakfast Edition was a good chance for me to try out granola and whey milk. I didn’t do a separate post for when I used the whey milk later that week for some cooking but I ended up tossing the Hamburger Helper mix I made with it. So while ok for cereal, I’ll never use it in cooking again. Too strong an odor.
Surviving a Bad Book:
An Enemy Reborn was more an introspective look at an author making a bad choice than a really bad book.
The Invisible Reader was definitely my most commented and viewed post this month.
Subverting the Sunshine Blogger Award was the most fun to write.
Merry Shelfmas was a close runner up for comments and also allowed me to show off in true Bookworm style.
A Fortress in Shadow: With Mercy Towards None won the cover love mainly because of its atrocious older cover. Compare for yourselves.
Going to be spending most of today finishing up my Year in Review post and getting that ready to drop at 0001hrs on Janurary 1st.
HAPPY NEW YEARS! (in case I don’t see you until after then)
