Oh my gosh, I just realized it’s the 6th and I totally forgot to post December’s Random Reads! I’m so, so sorry about that to those of you who follow the feature. December just kind of snuck up on me. Last month I picked and read Can You Keep a Secret by Sophie Kinsella. I didn’t like it very much, but you can read my review for it here.
In short, Random Reads is a meme where we pick a random book from our shelf to read within the month. Feel free to do more than one per month, but since a lot of people have a lot of books to read each month, only one is “required” for the meme. I’m on Goodreads so I’m using a combination of the sorting feature and Random.org to pick the book I’m going to read.
Want to join in on Random Reads?
- If you’re on Goodreads enable sorting to your to-read shelf (you should see numbers next to each book now).
- Go to Random.org and type in the Min as 1 and the Max as how many ever books are on your to-read shelf.
- Scroll down to the book matching the number Random.org picks.
- Link up to your Random Reads post (below). If you choose more than one book per month, be sure to put a number by your name in the list so it doesn’t look like a duplicate.
- Read and be merry.
If you’re not on Goodreads just pick a random book from your list in whatever way you want to do it. You can use the method I used above or even just close your eyes and point randomly at a book on your bookshelf if you want (spin the bottle style). lol
Now onto this month’s Random Read! This month Random.org chose…
#338 on my to-read list, Locke and Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft, and it’s been on my to-read list since June 14, 2013.
So excited for this pick! I have only recently (this year) started reading graphic novels and I’ve enjoyed most of the ones I’ve read (even though I can’t say that’s a lot yet). But, this one has great reviews and sounds really good. So it should be fun. I have it on hold at my library and will hopefully read it soon!

Here is the meme button you can use and it’s copy/paste code:
