It’s time for the mid-month check in. I can’t believe it’s December already! I do the mid-month check ins on Wednesdays so it serves as my This Week in Books / WWW Wednesday, which are two separate but similar memes both hosted on Wednesdays.
December has been a slow month for me, and I can’t say I think that’s been a bad thing. I tended to binge read a lot this year, and for 2017 one of my goals is to downshift a bit and take things slower.
My December Reading List
What have you read?
As evidenced by the fact that I’ve only read six books in the last 14 days, December has been slow for me. Lagoon was a painfully slow read for me. It just didn’t appeal at all. The Last Machine in the Solar System was a quick read (39 pages), and while it wasn’t entertaining it was very thought provoking. First Contact was a good read, but nothing outstanding. So “fire-and-forget” that I honestly don’t remember what I wrote in the review, and I just wrote it a few days ago.
Teri Polen’s Sarah was a good read. A clean, young adult horror with some salient points on sexual assault and the way we’re raising young men. Shadows of Tomorrow was a great audio book that would have been better served by a different narrator. Mission of Gravity was in it’s own realm of special. It’s a classic sci-fi that few have heard of, and the main character is a fifteen inch long caterpillar that runs a trading business on a planet with severe gravity fluctuations.

What’s up next?
I’m going to finish the 5 books on my TBR. Literally, there’s only 5 books on there, so that’s my goal for the rest of December. Finish those five piddly books so I can start fresh in 2017! I want to open back up to review submissions, but I’m not doing it until that list is completely wiped out!
What about you? Feel free to link your This Week in Books, WWW Wednesday, or any variation thereof!
