What I read in December

This month was a pretty good month reading-wise, even though I kind of wish it had been a bit more. Here is the list of books I read.
1. City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1) by Cassandra Clare

I've been working on this since the beginning of November and I finally finished it on the 12th. I'm still trying to figure out how I feel about this book, I will have a longer review up soon. 3/5 Stars.

2. The Christmas Shoppe by Melody Carlson
I loved this novella, it was not what I expected at all. The story was great and wasn't too cheesy. I will have a longer review up soon. 4/5 Stars

3. Praying the Bible by Donald S. Whitney
Several people had recommended this book to me, and I was intrigued by the title- especially since prayer is something that I constantly struggle with. I really enjoyed this book, and it was a quick read! 5/5 Stars.

4.  Passenger by Alexandra Bracken 

I received this book as an advanced copy from Netgalley and Disney-Hyperion. It was interesting but there were definitely things that confused me. I will have a longer review up next week. 3/5 Stars.

5. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Even though there were a few things I did not like about this book it was a great read. I can't wait until the next book comes out!I will have a longer review up soon.  3.95/5 Stars.

6. Hearthland Episode 33 by Chautona Havig 
This was the last novella I read in 2015. I continue to find this serial novel captivating, I am sad to see this series end soon. 3/5 Stars.

Overall, 2015 was a good year all-around, but I did pretty well reading-wise. If you would like to see the books that I read this year here is a link to "My Year in Books" on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/user/year_in_books/2015/8087658?utm_source=fb&fb_ref=Default.

Happy New Year and Happy Reading,
