Hello, book lovers.
It’s the eve of the new year. All I’ve got is: WOWZERS. This one has been a doozy.
Alas, here we are. End of December. Sunsets are still happening too early. 9PM feels like midnight. So at 5PM, with a glass of wine, strawberry, because it’s so forking goooood, here is the Sundown Rundown. This is everything I’ve read this week; a good opportunity to catch up on some reviews you might’ve missed.

Favorite Book: Caraval was by far my favorite my and definitely sits up on my favorites shelf. I was completely hypnotized by everything in this book. It was just so beautifully written, so vibrant, and completely enthralling. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series, Legendary.
Least Favorite Book: Something Strange and Deadly fell so much farther than I thought it would’ve. I didn’t have many expectations from it, but I thought it would’ve been better than it was. I like zombies and necromancy. They’re interesting subjects, but this book was too vague and repetitive on it. I just wasn’t into this one.
So, that’s it. I hope you all have had a good December and a spectacular year. See you in the new year!!
More to come soon…
