Ally Hughes Has Sex Sometimes by Jules Moulin ★★★★★

Batman: Harley Quinn by Paul Dini ★★★★
1. How many books you’ve read last month? Are you happy with the amount you read?
I’ve read seven books in December. Last two weeks were a total bust for reading. The work took it’s toll and I didn’t have the time to get down with a book the way I wanted to. At the end of the month I’m tired and a bit disappointed with my reading statistics for December. I’m glad I managed to squeeze in one graphic novel with short stories and different authors take on the character of Harley Quinn.
2. What was the best of all the books you’ve read in November? Any scenes or characters that made a lasting impression?
I loved Sword of Summer Magnus Chase book! The book won me over so much that I wanted to buy it in hardcover and keep buying them in hardcover as they come out.
3. Were there any not so good books for you last month? What made it hard or not enjoyable to read?
Brave New World kinda killed the holiday mood for me and Once Upon a Winter’s Eve novella was predictable and annoying.
4. How did the books you were reading last month fit in your reading plans if you had any?
I’ve read all that was required for my RL book club but some of the books I wanted to read in my spare time were missed out on.
5. Any updates on the series you are reading or are you starting any new series?
This December I was on a hiatus form book series as it seems. I have started one new books series with Magnus Chase and only other book series that was on my reading menu was one little novella I did not like.
6. Would you like to recommend any books or authors you’ve been reading this last month?
