Best Book of November/December Preview

Time for a brief recap of November and a preview of the reviews you can expect to see all December long!

November was a bit of a rocky month reading wise. I was insanely busy, so not much of it got done. A lot of the books seemed to come out as average rating wise. That being said, of course I still have to crown a best book and that is--Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep! It earned 4/5 stars, which is not at all bad in it's own right. More importantly, it stood out because I believe this series is going to build to something pretty spiffy, and I can't wait to see that happen. You can read my full review HERE.

We have quite the line up for December, because I got slightly off track of my November list. These are the books that you can expect to see reviewed here on Reading to Penguins!

Sebastian by Anne Bishop How I ended up reading this one at all is something of a story in itself. I'm about 1/4 of the way into it, so look forward to that review sometime early next week.

Magic Slays by Ilona Andrews I promised to read this one in November, but got sidetracked by aliens and Anne Bishop!

A Kiss at Midnight by Eloisa James

Immortal Rider by Larissa Ione

Envy by J.R. Ward

Destined for an Early Grave by Jeaniene Frost

Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs

As always if your interested in reading along, doing a guest review, or have something that you'd like to see reviewed in January, email me at Happy Reading!


  1. The Mercy Thompson series is one of my favourites! I really hope you enjoy that one!

    And I have been meaning to try books by Larissa Ione and JR Ward for ages but other things keep getting in the way! I will read some of their books one day *sigh*

  2. Destined For An Early Grave!!! YESSSS!! Cat + Bones = AWESOMNESS XD

    Can't wait for your review. And I just started reading the Kate Daniels series! So excited for Magic Slays!!

  3. Chrissie--I'll admit I'm a bit worried about Silver Borne because I found Bone Crossed rather average, but I've had series make bigger come backs.

    Sarah--I'm loving Cat and Bones! The Night Huntress series is one that consistently works for me, and it's the characters that make it awesome. I hope you'll stop by to Destined for an Early Grave with us!

  4. Magic Slays is really good - but I will say that it's a wee bit of a first novel; the worldbuilding is heavy (but awesome) - the rest of the series is INCREDIBLE. Love those books! I've read all the Kate Daniels stories multiple times. :)

    Looks like January will be a wonderful reading month for you! I wish I could go back and read Magic Slays and Silver Bourne for the first time, again...

  5. BJ--No one does world building like Ilona Andrews! I'm looking forward to it big time!


Thoughtful comments are appreciated! I always respond to them, and I usually return the favor! Happy reading!
