What I'm Reading/Watching: December 2014

Last month was all about the watching. This month? It was all about the reading. Well, listening. With lots of sample knitting to do this month, I got really into the audiobooks. I listened to Paper Towns by John Green.
I picked this one because I loved The Fault in Our Stars so so much. I enjoyed Paper Towns (although, admittedly, not quite as much as The Fault in Our Stars) and look forward to reading/listening to more of John Green's books.

Then I listened to The Night Circus.
I loved this book like I love Harry Potter or A Separate Peace. I think I will be rereading (and re-listening) to this one for years to come. I didn't want it to end. This book was originally part of my knit group's book club from a few years ago. I never got around to reading it then (I blame full-time lab job and almost full-time knit design job on the lack of reading I was doing at that time) and I'm so happy I made the time for it now. Amazing book.

And then I listened to Ready Player One.
I was unsure about this one at first. It had been on my Goodreads "to-read" list for awhile but my Goodreads friends had given it mixed reviews. I'm glad I listened to Laura and bought the audiobook. I loved having Wil Wheaton reading it to me! I really loved this book too. I even bought one and sent it to my brother in Fargo to read. I think he's going to love it too.

After those last two books I felt like I needed a book that felt a little more "real." You know what I mean. :) So, I've started listening Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I'm about a third of the way in and am enjoying it so far! I'm still working on reading Cora's Heart. I haven't had a lot of time to pick up a physical book (or in this case, Kindle), but I'm reading a few pages each night. I am really liking that book too. Hopefully I'll finish that one up soon!

As for watching, just more made-for-TV Christmas movies, along with some of my favorites - White Christmas and It's a Wonderful Life!

What have you been reading or watching? I want to hear about it!

Wonder what I read/watched last month? Check out this blog post.
