It's not Monday... December Round-Up

It's been a while since I did an It's Monday! What Are You Reading? post and I've made the decision to move to monthly round-ups going forward. This means less effort for me and less duplication for you to ignore! So, lets look at December... I read a lot more than I reviewed but here's what made it onto the blog:

Reviews:



5 stars awarded to: A Passionate Love Affair With a Total Stranger by Lucy Robinson and The Mad Scientist's Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke.

Disappointed with: The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter and Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison.

Blogged about:

I went to see a preview of Life of Pi (in 20th Century Fox's very swish private cinema - thanks to Canongate for inviting me!) which did mean I watched the film before reading the book. *Gasp* Catalogue Spotlight featured some of the fantastic 2013 line-up from Constable & Robinson. A bit late if you missed it earlier but here's my Christmas card to you all and a round-up of Bookish Advent. Finally, I chose my Top Twelve 2012.

Memes, events + challenges:

    1. Actually it was grey on grey... Black text on bright white is more straining on eyes and migraines. I did loads of research on it as lots of people moan about it and that was why it wasn't white on black, just made to appear that way. I know if a screen hurts my head, it's time not to look at the screen. I can't use Flickr or Google reader when I have a migraine because of all the white but no one seems to complain about that.

  3. I've got your two 5-star reads in my Netgalley queue so it's great to see you liked them so much. Looks like you've had a good start to the year :-)
