What I Read in December

HAPPY NEW YEAR Y'ALL. I actively set my 2020 reading goal for 50 books, and I've already read 4 so hopefully that's a thing I can accomplish. Who knows, best laid plans and everything. December was insane and I'm pretty sure it really only lasted about 15 minutes. We took all the decorations off the tree this past Sunday but we aren't taking the tree itself down. I'm not ready to part with it yet and we're having a bonfire next Saturday soooooooo. Anyways. If you missed What I Read In November, you can catch up there! Maybe I'll blog about more things than books this month, who knows.

I didn't take any book pictures so here's one of me in sunny Cancun where I'd very much like to be right now.

A Woman Is No Man: I'd had this on holds since April, which is insane.Then I absolutely devoured it. It broke my hear a little, but I also felt like I learned a lot? It's told from the point of view of three different generations of women and it will open your eyes to a different experience than the one you may have. Also, one of the character's favorite books is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn which is actually my favorite book too. Maybe I'll re-read that one. I've lost my original copy though, which really bums me out. ANYWAYS. A Woman Is No Man, I recommend it. 

Educated: This is another one I've had on holds since I got my library cards and discovered I could check out ebooks from the library. I felt a lot of ways about this one. There's a lot of stuff I feel like I can't really talk about without spoiling it? I honestly didn't love it. I didn't hate it? But I didn't love it either.

Death in The Clouds: Another Poirot novel! Y'all, spoiler alert for What I Read In January -- I've already finished three more Poirot novels. NBD. I love it. This one features an implausible murder on a plane, that sounds like it's made up even to the characters in the book! I've said it once, I'll say it several times more, I never see the real murderer coming. Every time I think, oh man I've figured this one out and I am always wrong. I love it.

Three Act Tragedy: Again, Poirot. I'm reading them all in order, which you really don't have to do, it's just an easy way for me to decide which one comes next!

It wasn't a big reading month for me because December was crazy with holiday things and more holiday things. Linking up with Steph & Jana for Show Us Your Books! What have you been reading lately? Anything I should pickup? I'm currently reading Murder in Mesopotamia, told y'all I was all about Poirot...
