#MTBoS12Days Books!

Ok, so I still have a week until my year-end book round up, so while I’m waiting for my butter to warm up for some cookie baking, here are my quick writeups for #MTBoS12Days.

Book I read:

Illuminae  By Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff  This is the most recent book I’ve been recommending to everyone. Do not be put off by the page count!  It’s all told in “found documents” so it’s a really quick read, especially because you can’t put it down. It’s like the best of every scifi movie/tv show/book was put into a blender and out came this imaginative smoothie.

Book I’m reading:

Afterwards by Rosamund Lupton This was a book I’ve had on my (182-item) Kindle wishlist for while, so I bought it when went on sale for $1.99 last week. It’s kept me guessing as to whodunnit. I’m about halfway through and I don’t want to throw it against the wall, which is better than half the books I’ve started recently.

Book I want to read:

The Neapolitan Series by Elena Ferrante I really don’t know much about these, except the fourth (and last) one came out this year and was on a lot of best-of lists. I just downloaded the first one from the library to read as my next book.

Also, I just learned today that in Iceland, it is traditional to gift a book on Christmas Eve and spend the rest of the night reading and eating chocolate. I knew I loved Iceland for a reason!  Merry Jólabókaflóð!
