✨ december ✨

i had five five-star reads in december last year:

-the magician‘s nephew
-the second chance year
-the horse and his boy
-prince caspian

and the second chance year was my (non-reread) favorite of the five.

Atmospheric, historical fiction, mystery, fortune telling. I‘m still thinking about this one!

And it‘s a wrap! Looking forward to some more great reading in 2024

Oops. I forgot to post my #12booksof2023 selection for December. This was a fun book, and we had a good discussion at book club. I can‘t really say more, because the reason I liked it is a spoiler. 😎

Honorable mention to The General and Julia, which was published in November. It was the newest book I read in 2023, and The Mystery of the Old Clock (1930) was the oldest.

With this I think I‘ve sufficiently recapped 2023. On to 2024! #wrapup

Andrew65 Excellent! Thanks for playing long, a great way to review 2023. See you for #12Booksof2024 on Christmas Day. 5mo

#12Booksof2023 #December

This book had a lot to live up to, because I love the movie with Paul Newman. We watch it every year sometime on or after Thanksgiving. Thankfully I loved it. It added depth to the characters in the movie and introduces more that are not in the movie. This is also a husband pick as he read it first. He is currently reading the second book and third one arrived today.

Reggie I haven‘t read this one but I‘ve read his Straight Man and it‘s hilarious. 5mo
Bookzombie @Reggie This one has funny moments. The residents of North Bath are unique and that leads to hilarity sometimes. They also have a lot of issues. Since I have seen the movie so many times, the characters were the actors in my head but I think the casting fit. 5mo

I had a really strong December and I‘m going with a 3-way tie between Helmet For My Pillow (WWII memoir), All the Sinners Bleed, and Hello Beautiful to round out my #12Booksof2023.

Andrew65 All The Sinners Bleed and Hello Beautiful have been popular choices. Thanks for playing long, a great way to review 2023. See you for #12Booksof2024 on Christmas Day. 5mo

TieDyeDude I just started this book! 5mo
SamAnne I really enjoyed,this one. I liked her novel On the Bright Side of the World even more. @tiedyedude you might really enjoy that one since early white explorers factor into the story line. 5mo

This was a re-read for me, but slowly savoring it this between Christmas and New Year‘s was the perfect ending to my reading year. #12booksof2023
