Here we are, halfway through January, and I am finally writing about the books I read in December! I actually do have a good excuse for my lateness, though, I had to re-order one of them from the library and wait for it to come back in, so there!
The first book that I read in December was Can You Keep a Secret by one of my all-time favorite authors Sophie Kinsella. She writes light, easy to read books that usually focus on a female character in her 20s. Being a female in my 20s, this appeals to me quite a bit! Honestly, I read this so long ago that I can hardly remember what it was about, except that it was about a girl who “accidentally” told all her secrets to her boss. Of course at the time, she didn’t know he was her boss. Then they end up dating and he doesn’t like to tell secrets so she is mad that he already knows all of hers. It’s just a fun, silly read!
The second book was I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. My mom recommended this book to me because it’s by the same author who wrote 101 Dalmatians. I liked this book, but it took me a while to get into it because there’s very little excitement or drama. It was the type of book that you want to read curled up by the fire drinking tea on a winter night. A very peaceful book.
The last book was my favorite of the month. It was My Life in France by Julia Child. I’ve had this book for a while and just randomly picked it up to read. She has such a fun personality in the book and she writes with so much detail, I was amazed she could remember so much about her early life! All the food she mentions sounds delicious, and I definitely ate too much while I was reading this book!
I love going back and looking at the previous posts I’ve done about the books I read. It’s a good way to keep track of how much I am reading! What did you read during the month of December?
