Final Push – December (a blog)

So here we are at the start of December and I find my Goodreads goal to be lofty, but just, possibly, within reach. Reading 100 books in 2020 would be such an accomplishment if I can just get to the finish line.

December 3, 2020 – 82/100

Goodreads suggests I’m 10 books behind schedule… I suggest I’ve just been issued one heck of a December challenge. Luckily I’ve got some time off work this month, but I’ve still got lots of work to do, house cleaning to accomplish and Christmas to pull off… Good luck… I’m going to count down the last 20 books of my challenge. I’m going to have to read almost a book a day for most of the month to make it. So this may not be a pretty blog, because I’ve got to focus most of my time on reading.

Book #80 (20 to go) – Crashed – K. Bromberg

A cute end to a very “racy” series. Started out strong, and even though it got a little weak by the end of the series, it was plenty entertaining, a quick and easy read, and the companion series on Passionflix was problematic, but distracting. So distracting, however, that it did put a serious speed bump on my reading goals.

Book #81 (19 to go) – Clockwork Angel – Cassandra Clare

This was a re-read, but was a little difficult to get through in good time. I always love this series, but for some reason it did take a bit to get through. I think these are pretty substantial books to be taking on this late in the year and may have to shelve most of my Shadowhunter reading goals to 2021.

Book #82 (18 to go) – Ghost Story – Peter Straub (finished Dec 2)

This book was disappointing. It took me FOREVER to get through, having started well before Halloween. I did like how everything came together and very much enjoyed the very beginning and very end of the book, but there was a lot of middle ground to muddle through.
