December review

The end of the year is here finally. I've spent the month reading pretty much whatever I fancy rather than worrying about review copies as such and dipping into a few adult books over the Christmas break.

Read in December
My sister's keeper by Jodie Picoult
Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin
Wild Lily by KM Peyton
Who's that girl by Mhairi McFarlane
The Reluctant Journal of Henry K Larsen
Everyone Brave is forgiven by Chris Cleave
Moth Girls by Anne Cassidy
Operation Blackout by Victor Watson

Book of the Month

I have been waiting for a new book from Mhairi since I read her last book this time last year. I was so pleased when this arrived and loved it as much as I hoped I would.

Events attended
I went to a lovely event in London held by My Kinda Book seeing two of their 2016 debut authors talk about their books Harriet Reuter Hapgood with Square Root of Summer and Sara Barnard with Beautiful Broken Things . I've read both and they are awesome
