Physical:

In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5
Frozen Beauty by Lexa Hillyer – ⭐️
⭐️⭐️
This Time Next Year by Sophie Cousens –
⭐️⭐️⭐️.5

A Christmastime Christina Lauren was just what I needed this year. It was sweet and fun and I just loved it. Frozen Beauty was one of my most anticipated reads in 2020 and I was a little disappointed. There wasn’t something specifically wrong with it, I just wanted more. This Time Next Year was sweet and I loved the characters and their development throughout the novel, but it was just kind of boring? It felt much longer than it actually was.

I started in on my January ARCs this month! I was so excited to dive into Emma Lord’s sophomore release and it did not disappoint, I really loved it. Wider Than the Sky was just a random Netgalley ARC that I requested and I’m so glad I did. I thought about this book so much after reading—it hit me in the feels, big time. Despite being way too long, both Sarah Morgenthaler books were really fun to read and I can’t wait for the finale coming out this month. Like In a Holidaze, All About Us had a time traveling aspect that I thought would bother me, but I actually enjoyed. It definitely took some time to get into, but by the time I was nearing the end, I really cared about the characters and the story.

Audiobooks:

The Quantum Weirdness of the Almost-Kiss by Amy Noelle Parks – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5
Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra & Dhonielle Clayton (reread) – ⭐️
⭐️⭐️⭐️.5
A Very Punchable Face by Colin Jost – ⭐️
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
One Way or Another by Kara McDowell – ⭐️
⭐️⭐️.5
We Met in December by Rosie Curtis – ⭐️
⭐️⭐️.5
The Twelve Dates of Christmas by Jenny Bayliss –
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Some more Christmas reads! These three were fun and sweet, but not very memorable. I reread Tiny Pretty Things to get read for the TV series—don’t get me started on that mess—and I had so much fun being back into the world of the American Ballet Company. Colin Jost proved to be a much better writer than Weekend Update anchor. Find my review for The Quantum Weirdness of the Almost-Kiss right here.

And there you have it—the final month of 2020. I seemed to have read a lot of Hallmark channel romances in book form this month, but that’s kind of what you want around the holidays. I hope you’re having a good start to your year. Get ready for the rest of the month, filled with my favorites of 2020!

    • It’s completely different. The book series is A LOT more innocent. It all depends on what you prefer. Maybe if I didn’t have the expectations of the book going into the series, I may have enjoyed it more. The dancing was really great.
