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 1,060 books lying around the house and ended the month with 1,055 books unread. All the books that I acquired this month came from Paperback Swap and Bookmooch.

Let me try to break down the influx for you:

Changes to the TBR pile

Read from my TBR pile (Yes! I am a reading machine :))
Shutter Island: A Novel by Dennis Lehane
- A Death in Belmont by Sebastian Junger
The Crooked Branch: A Novel by Jeanine Cummins
- Next, After Lucifer by Daniel Rhodes
- Point Hollow: A Novel by Rio Youers

Added to my TBR pile (oh well, you win some and you lose some! Not too bad though, I suppose:))
- Indignation: A Novel by Philip Roth
- A Gesture Life: A Novel by Chang-Rae Lee
- Brother, I'm Dying by Edwidge Danticat
- The Killer Department by Robert Cullen
- The Outside Boy: A Novel by Jeanine Cummins
A Rip in Heaven: A Memoir of Murder and Its Aftermath by Jeanine Cummins

Taken off my TBR pile and sent to a new home (Yay! Happy Dance! :))
- A Walk Among the Tombstones by Lawrence Block
- Shutter Island: A Novel by Dennis Lehane
- The Deceit by Paul Block
- Everything's Eventual: 14 Dark Tales by Stephen King

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

Books Read: 5
Pages Read: 1,583
Grade Range: A+! to A!

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! :)

Till we Meet Again, Glow Brightly as Moonlight

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! :)
