Books Read in December

Need to do a proper end-of-the-year wrap up post soon! My goodness, how has 2020 gotten away from me already?? We’re only 3 days in!!

Anyway, have some books:

Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales: Major ImpossibleNathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales: Major Impossible by Nathan Hale
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This might be my new favorite book in the series! Though I was not ready to get that amount of detail about Civil War battlefield amputations in a children’s comic, let alone find out that even cartoony drawings of amputations would make my stomach turn. I can’t wait to take this one out for booktalks!

Also, I kind of want to go to the Grand Canyon now. How have I never been?

MooncakesMooncakes by Suzanne Walker
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The cover is a bit misleading and I’m not quite sure what mooncakes have to do with anything. After reading the third book in the “Witch Boy” series and the new “Okay Witch”, this book fell flat in both the magical friendship romance realm for me.

The Midwinter Witch (The Witch Boy, #3)The Midwinter Witch by Molly Ostertag
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Third book in the series and going strong. This is an important step for Aster and, again, a great talking point for kids and tweens that are reading the series – should Aster show his powers at the Midwinter festival in front of all the other witches and shapeshifters? Can’t wait to see what happens in book 4!

The Black MageThe Black Mage by Daniel Barnes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 stars. I really wanted to love this but if this is the start of a series, I’m here for it. I would love to see more adventures with Tom and Jim. I mean, vanquishing one racist wizarding school probably isn’t a whole lot in the grand scheme of things. I want him to take on the world!

The Unicorn Whisperer (Phoebe and Her Unicorn Series Book 10)The Unicorn Whisperer by Dana Simpson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I don’t know what else I can say about this series except that it makes me LOL and I adore it. I needed something light and fun and this collection is solid through out. I love the Halloween arc, with Phoebe getting temporary superpowers, courtesy of Marigold.

The Year We Fell From SpaceThe Year We Fell From Space by A.S. King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another solid addition to King’s catalog. Full of heart and humor, all the while tackling the very serious subjects of divorce, depression and dealing with emotions.
