Books I read in December! Superpowerless, Moonrise, The Argonauts, Grief is the Thing With Feathers,Winter Magic, Lumberjanes

Hiya hiya hiya Happy New Year. I've got a nice December reading round up for youuuu ooooh. Up first I read Superpowerless by Chris Priestley, a story of a teenage boy's struggle with grief and escape into his superhero alter ego. There are some very good comic strip pages between chapters too. Next up I read Moonrise by the wonderful Sarah Crossan. I loved one of her previous books, One, written entirely in verse. Moonrise is written in the same way, following the brother of a death row inmate as he navigates his sibling's final weeks. It's safe to say it is pretty intense! I have been reading The Argonauts by Maggie Nelson in my lunch breaks for a little while and I finished it in December. I have a friend who is basically evangelical about it and I thought it was pretty great too. It was about time I picked Max Porter's Grief is the Thing With Feathers off my tbr pile. It was very strange and every bit as good as all the rave reviews said it was. With Christmas approaching I picked out Winter Magic, a collection of short stories curated by Abi Elphinstone, which was perfect festive fireside reading. And to round the year off, I snuck in Lumberjanes Vol. 3 to make it to my reading target of 60 books!
