December 2015 round-up

I decided that I’m not going to do mini-reviews this month! I’m feeling a bit worded out in terms of talking about books, especially Cybils books (which most of these were). Mini-reviews should return next month & if you want to know what I thought of a particular book, please do ask!

Also, I’m starting a podcast about YA, with the first episode out in January! I’m planning this project to run through the end of the year and then I’ll assess whether I want to keep going.

Beastly Bones by William Ritter
Duplicity by N.K. Travers
