Reading Wrap-up For December at Moonshine and Rosefire


Hello everyone out there and I hope that you all had a terrific reading month for yourselves. I am known as Rosefire around the Internet and this is my new personal reading blog. I originally posted my reviews over at my daughter's blog, Emeraldfire's Bookmark but am now in the process of transferring them all over to my own blog. My daughter makes blogging look like so much fun that I thought that I would try it out for myself! :)

Anyway, I started out December with 636 unread books lying around the house and ended the month with 630 books unread. All the books that I acquired this month came from authors, Paperback Swap, Christmas Tree Shops and Bookmooch.

Let me try to break down the influx for you:

- Echoes by Maeve Binchy

Changes to the TBR pile

Read from my TBR pile (Yes! I am a reading machine :))
- My Soul to Keep by Judith Hawkes
- Julian's House by Judith Hawkes
- Kept in the Dark by Nina Bawden
- Classic Mysteries: A Collection of Mind-Bending Masterpieces by Molly Cooper
- Ladder of Years by Anne Tyler

Added to my TBR pile (oh well, you win some and you lose some! Not too bad though, I suppose:))
In the Shadow of the School: Memories of Growing up in Rural North Kerry in the 1950's by Dick Carmody
- Silver Wedding by Maeve Binchy
- Mount Vernon Love Story: A Novel of George and Martha Washington by Mary Higgins Clark
- Downtown by Anne Rivers Siddons
- Prey by Linda Howard
- Victims by Jonathan Kellerman

Taken off my TBR pile and sent to a new home (Yay! Happy Dance! :))

The Body Farm by Patricia Cornwell
- Loose Change: Three Women of the Sixties by Sara Davidson
- At Paradise Gate by Jane Smiley

Well, there it is...the breakdown! All in all, a very good reading month for me. Here's a further breakdown:

Books Read: 6
Pages Read: 1,915
Grade Range: A+! to B+!

So, there you go! The reading month that was December. I hope that you all had an equally good reading month; if not a little better. :) See you all next month! :)

Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm a newbie as far as book blogging goes, having been blogging at my daughter's blog for only about two and a half years. Now it's time for me to get my feet wet on my own. Please be gentle with this blogger. Love to hear from you all. Have a great day! :)
