Show Us Your Books Link Up: Last Month's Reads


I'm linking up with Jana and Steph this week to show off some of the books I've read in the last month! All buy links are created with amazon associates - small percent of all sales goes back to me to help with the blog!

Great Reads:

Blank Spaces by Cass Lennox: I really love LGBT+ books that feature asexual characters, and I thought Lennox did a great job with this one. I'll be reading the rest of this series. Buy here.

Running Blind by Kim Fielding and Venona Keyes: Another LGBT+ book, but this time one of the MC's is blind. I really liked the dynamic! Buy here.

The Lost Property Office by James R. Hannibal: The first in a new MG series. I really loved this one! It's full of mystery and suspense, and I loved the historical aspect of it, since it focuses a great deal on the Great London Fire. Buy it here.


Just Okay Reads:

The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie:  this one wasn't bad, per se, but it didn't really keep my interest as much as other Christie novels I've read. First in the Tommy and Tuppence series.

The Outfielders by Robert P. Lowe: I enjoyed this one overall, but I did find some of the story to be a bit slow in parts.

Oh fun! Too bad the Christie one wasn't quite there for ya. I need to try hers out in 2017. My family just loves them.

I've had a hard time with Christie novels myself; they tend to bore me after a time, and I can never bring myself to quite finish them. :/

I'm glad to see the great reads outnumbering the OK if only by one. Yet to read anything by Agatha Christie, though she comes highly recommended by several friends and fellow bloggers I'm afraid her books just don't appeal.

I added Blank Spaces to my to read list.

Agatha Christie is not a favorite of mine!

You know, I've not read anything by Agatha Christie! I'm not sure her works are for me. I hope you have a great month in reading for December! =)

I haven't read a Christie novel in awhile. I don't know how you find time to read so many books, but I am glad you do so you can review them for us! :)

I've loved Agatha Christie forever and have read most of her books. Tommy &Tuppance mysteries were never my favorites, though. :)

We can add Agatha Christie to the list of authors I've never read but need to. One of these days, I suppose.
