Monthly Shelf Recap

Monthly Shelf Recap – December, 2015

December 31, 2015



I read a total of 5 books this month. I’m also a few chapters in to Firewalker… (yup, it’s a slow process…) I managed to finish off TWO SERIES this month… The Lunar Chronicles (YAY!) and The Starbound Trilogy. Both were quite similar, actually, particularly in how I rated them. My favourite this month was These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner. My least favourite this month was Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini. I gave it a teeny one-star.


Yay – look at that, I’m finally ALMOST THROUGH my usual leftovers. Once I finish Firewalker, I just have to finally knock The Assassin’s Blade off the list…. I also have Thicker than Water by Brigid Kemmerer to read, which I’m excited about, and I purchased Lady Helen & The Dark Days Club so I have that to read to co-incide with the US release date. Fun times. I left my TBR quite open this month, as I have NO IDEA what new 2016 books I’m going to start with…

New Additions


SO MANY BOOKS THIS MONTH. I blame Christmas and also finding two awesome second-hand bookshops while on holiday on the Gold Coast. I was able to finally finish my collection of Mediator books by Meg Cabot (the nostalgia – can’t wait to re-read them!) as well as the final books I needed to finish the series by Julie Kagawa, Kiersten White and Cynthia Hand. I also got a great selection of books from publishers this month, which I’m super excited about!

    I see the Marillier books,I’ll have to check out this series. I have a few of these, but I’ve only read Thicker Than Water and These Broken Stars. I have This Shattered World and Their Fractured Light in audio and I hope to read them soon. I hope you have fun with your new books :)

    Oh I love how the Firewalker books kind of match together like that! :D Super clever. I read the first one a few years back and I did like it…but I kind of forgot it existed. hehe. My bad! I should look them up too!! My January TBR is FLOODED with books I should’ve read last year. *facepalm* Hopefully I’ll catch up….by March?! Lol ;)
    Hope you’re having a good new years! :D

      I know, I love how they match, too! I read your review after I wrote my own and I can’t believe how different our opinions were! Haha!
      I totally hear you. I think once I finish Assassin’s Blade, I have all my MUST READ TBR out of the way. Phew! :D March sounds good!

      Thank you! I hope you had a fantastic NYE too! :)
