Books in December

Shades of Grey
It’s a social satire, revolutionary thriller, romance novel by Jasper Fforde, he of the Thursday Next novels. Anyways. It’s about a society where the higher social standing you have, the more colors you can see. The main character is Eddie, who can only see red. Other things are just grey and have to be colored in by other means. I’m excited it seems fun.

A monster calls
It’s about a kid, Conor, who has the same dream every night, and then one night he wakes up and there is something at his window. And the monster at the window wants the truth from Conor. I’m excited, cause people have talked about it and it seems really cool, so that’ll be fun.

The Island of Doctor Moreau
In my attempt to read more classics and more classic Fantasy/Sci-Fi I thought I’d read the Island of Doctor Moreau. H. G. Wells, the master of olde fashion sci-fi, I’m excited. It’s about a mad doctor who lives in this island paradise conducting creepy experiments on humans and animals.

I’ve heard so many good things about this book, and I’m very excited. It’s about a world where Dragons and Humans live together. They have lived in peace for forty years, but they still live in mistrust. The book is about Seraphina Dombegh. She’s a musician who works at court, and then a member of the royal family is killed in a very draconian fashion. She’s pulled into the mystery and she starts to uncover the plot to destroy the peace. I’m so excited. I like dragons.

The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror
My Christmas book of the year. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book cause of Christmas, but let’s go with it. It’s about a little kid who thinks he’s seen Santa take a shovel to the head. He prays for Santa to be alive and an angel, Raziel, to be exact, comes down to grant a wish. Sadly he turns out to be a bit of an idiot and he launches the town into chaos and towards the most hilarious and horrifying holiday party the town has ever seen. It seems like a lot of fun so I’m looking forward to that. Come Christmas spirit, I would like you to be here now please.

Santa Olivia
I have already read this, I read it in two days. It was fun. It’s about this village between Mexico and the US, where Texas used to be. A girl is born there to a woman and a genetically mutated wolf-man. The man has to leave, but his daughter, Loup grows up in Santa Olivia. She is different and she spends her whole life being careful. She lives with a bunch of orphans in the church and with the help of the orphans she takes on the guise of the patron saint of the city and exacts vengeance on people who behave horribly to people in town. It was fun.
