Someone Like Me by M. R. Carey. As I got further into this book I found it almost impossible to put down. I just had to know how it was going to end, having experienced so many twists and unexpected happenings. Also, how could you resist a book with a talking, cartoon-ish fox as a character?! I can’t wait to see what Carey writes next.


My total for this challenge is 14 books read.  I’ve read:

The Watcher by Ross Armstrong
The Christmas Secret by Karen Swan
Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant
Year One by Nora Roberts
A Gathering of Shadows by V. E Schwab
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Ordeal by Innocence by Agatha Christie
The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie
The Murder on the Links by Agatha Christie
A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles
Dear Fahrenheit 451 by Annie Spence
A Talent for Murder by Andrew Wilson
Poirot Investigates by Agatha Christie


My grand total for 2018 is 42 books read, which is probably more than I was expecting!


  • I think I managed to keep up with many of my goals, and now it’s time to think about a new list. I like the idea of some general ideas rather than committing to a number of challenges, although I’ll probably stick with the old favourites.

So concludes December’s Reading Review. See you again next month
