Spell the Month in Books: December!

I saw this over on One Book More and thought it would be a fun monthly post! I have tagged her post so you can check it out too! It was originally created by Reviews from the Stacks, and the idea is to spell the month using the first letter of book titles.

I’m just going to add a tidbit from the synopsis and whether I’ve read it or want to. I’ll link the Goodreads link on the title if you want to check it out more!

I almost missed it!! Happy New Years eve, everyone!!! I got this in, in the knick of time!

D- Daughter of the Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan

“A captivating debut fantasy inspired by the legend of Chang’e, the Chinese moon goddess, in which a young woman’s quest to free her mother pits her against the most powerful immortal in the realm.”

This book has a lot going for it but it somehow didn’t live up to the hype for me.

E- Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

“At birth, Ella is inadvertently cursed by an imprudent young fairy named Lucinda, who bestows on her the “gift” of obedience. Anything anyone tells her to do, Ella must obey. Another girl might have been cowed by this affliction, but not feisty Ella: “Instead of making me docile, Lucinda’s curse made a rebel of me. Or perhaps I was that way naturally.” 

I loved this movie and the book!! Highly recommend!

C- Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

“In a time when Shadowhunters are barely winning the fight against the forces of darkness, one battle will change the course of history forever. Welcome to the Infernal Devices trilogy, a stunning and dangerous prequel to the New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments series.’

Still one of my favorites in this world!!

E- Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer

Yes. Yes, I know. Did I love these at the time? Yes. Do I now? Not so much but I appreciate the nostalgia. There are 3 E’s this month and I was desperate lol

M- Mysteries of Thorn Manor by Margaret Rogerson

“In this sequel novella to Sorcery of Thorns, Elisabeth, Nathaniel, and Silas must unravel the magical trap keeping them inside Thorn Manor in time for their Midwinter Ball!”

I AM SO EXCITED about this! I don’t think I’ll get the arc but I pre-ordered it!!

B- Built to Last by Erin Hahn

“Shelby Springfield has spent the last ten years trying to overcome her past, sanding it away like she does the rough spots on the vintage furniture finds she makes over. But as a former child star, it’s hard to forget a mediocre pop career, a meltdown widely documented by the paparazzi, and a huge public break with her former co-star Lyle Jessup. It’s also hard to forget her other co-star and childhood sweetheart, Cameron Riggs — the one who got away.”

This was a really enjoyable read for me!

E- Eragon by Christopher Paolini

“When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon soon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.”

I didn’t love this one as much as I thought I would. I might have read it too late in life.

R- River of Silver, The by S.A. Chakraborty

“Bestselling author S. A. Chakraborty’s acclaimed Daevabad Trilogy gets expanded with this new compilation of stories from before, during, and after the events of The City of BrassThe Kingdom of Copper, and The Empire of Gold, all from the perspective of characters both beloved and hated, and even those without a voice in the novels. The River of Silver gathers material both seen and new–including a special coda fans will need to read–making this the perfect complement to those incredible novels.”

This was a great companion to the series!

  1. Eragon might be one of the books that most got me into fantasy. But I also read it in like fifth grade, so I didn’t have much to compare it to by then. Chakraborty’s companion book is on my list! I’ve been so curious about what would be added! I read that whole series in about three weeks last February and was immediately in love lol

    • Yes- I think, I would have loved it then!! It might be past my reading time, at this point. Haha.

      River of Silver had several short stories about different points of the book & POV’s. A lot of fun insights and moments during the series by other characters!
