December Wrap-up

Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman The Ocean at the End of the Lane LP: A Novel - Neil Gaiman Coraline - Neil Gaiman The Incurables - Jon Bassoff

Not a bad month to be fair, there's a number of short stories as I chased my 200 book target and finally finished on about 205.


The best thing by far about December is the rediscovery of the one and only Neil Gaiman, two of my favourite books of the year came with Neverwhere and The Ocean at the end of the Lane + ranking alongside Bedlam as my best Graphic Novel was Sandman: Overture. All top class.


I will do a top 10 of the year tomorrow but for now its Decembers reads and I need to knock some reviews out.


More Gaiman to come this month for sure.

And a Happy new year to everyone.
