The time it was a monthly recap {7}

Posted January 1, 2016 by Stacee in Monthly Recap | 11 Comments

Hi guys! *waves* Another month is over… I can’t believe that it’s already January and the start of a new year. Happy 2016!


Anyhoo, let’s get the December recap started!


I read a total of 28 books.

1 2 3 4 5 6

7 8 9 10 11 12

13 14 15 16 17 18

19 20 21 22 23 1

2 3 4 5


3 1 2

Tamara Ireland Stone sent me a Chinese edition of Time Between Us, Jaime Lee Moyer sent me a copy of Against a Brightening Sky {if you haven’t read this series, you really should}, and Amy Tintera sent me an arc of Ruined.

I also got a finished copy of Untamed by AG Howard from Abrams and an arc of Burning Midnight by Will McIntosh from Random House.


Fangirled over:


Special stuff:


  • Fangirling over Jennifer Bosworth and maybe Kali Wallace
  • Interviewing Jennifer Bosworth and Sarah Ahiers
  • Talking about the best kisses in YA for The Winner’s Kiss blog tour
  • I have a tattoo appointment for the 15th and yes, it’s book related

Miscellaneous stuffs:

  • I submitted a name to Temple West’s contest to name a character in Cashmere {Velvet #2} and I’m a finalist! Apparently I’m the only one who used their real name {with some love for my Star Wars girl crush, Rey}. Please go here to vote to have my name in the book! The contest ends on 1/8.
  • I’m really going to challenge myself this year and my 2016 Goodreads goal is 365 books.  I’m not sure I’ll be able to actually read a book a day, but I like how it will average to that.  I’ve been thinking about doing a weekly photo of sorts on IG.  Would you guys want to see that?

What about you? How was your December? What was your favorite read?

  1. Wow I’m genuinely flabbergasted! 28 books in one month, allow me to kneel at your feet! Haha well done!! Good luck for 2016 Stacee! I read a meager 8 books and looved them all – my favourite was The Martian by Andy Weir :)

      Thank you!! 8 books is better than no books!! I want to read The Martian, I’m happy to hear you enjoyed it!

      Thanks for reading and commenting!!

  2. New Years Eve Day I started an MG titled The Night Parade because I got it in my head that I wanted to add one more book to my GR challenge. It was fabulous! It is a standalone set in Japan. I loaded Untamed to my Kindle because I am still holding out hope for a box set. Wouldn’t that be glorious? I am going to start reading it tonight after dinner. I keep eyeing A Monstertous Thing. Did you review it on GR yet? I am curious what you thought about it. I will go back and see if I can vote again on the Temple West contest. Happy New Year!

  3. WOW! You had an incredible reading month! CONGRATS!! What did you think of Starflight? I was just in the process of pre-ordering a signed copy! HAHA! My friend read it and reassured me that I’m going to love it. Wishing you a great January and a happy healthy 2016!
