Hey y’all!! I’m back with Blogmas Day 2. Today we are talking about my December TBR. If you have been on my blog for a while you know that my TBR’s are a little arbitrary because I am a mood reader, but nevertheless I have to do something to narrow my selections for the month. So here are the books that I would like to read in the coming month.
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng – Yes this is indeed popping up on another TBR, however, this is my IRL book club pick for the month so it will definitely be getting read this month. This is a story that takes place in Shaker Heights, Ohio and it follows several families. I’m excited to finally pick up this novel.
Mansfield Park by Jane Austen – I have not read a classic in ages and this is the last Jane Austen that I need to read, so I will be picking this one up. I absolutely love Jane Austen’s works and plan on re-reading them all next year (that’s something for a different post). I don’t really know what it’s about but it’s Jane Austen and I love her so it doesn’t really matter to me.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling – Yes I will finally be completing the Harry Potter series this month. I am currently reading Half-Blood Prince and LOVING it, so I can’t wait to finally round out this series and talk about it as a whole as someone who has read it for the first time!
The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness – This is the final book in the All Souls Trilogy. I have been loving this trilogy so much and will do a series review when I have completed it! Plus look at this beautiful edition of the book I found at Half Priced Books.
Christmas in London by Anita Hughes – This is a Netgalley ARC that I received and should of read ages ago but it’s perfect to read now. I don’t really know a whole lot about except it is a Christmas cozy contemporary and I am here for ALL of that this month.
Twelve Slays of Christmas by Jacqueline Frost – This is another Netgalley Arc that I need to read. This is, I believe, a cozy mystery which is also something that I am here for this season.
Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward – I’m going to listen to this on audiobook! This is one of my most anticipated books of the year. This is the National Book Award winner for this year and I love Jesmyn Ward. This book follows Jojo as he goes on trip with his absentee mother and siblings to pick their dad up after a prison sentence or something like that. It’s new, written by Jesmyn Ward, and I have heard nothing but good things about it. I will be listening to this very soon and ordering the UK paperback because it’s gorgeous!
Lastly, if you follow me on Instagram (which you should, just click here) you will know that I created a TBR with books that I physically own and that are on my Kindle in an effort to reduce the numbers on my shelves. I love my public library but the books on my shelf get sad sometimes. I thought I would try it out, this month while I tweak how I want to do use the jar (again, another post for another day). I say all that to say, the last book on my TBR is from the jar.
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon – I believe this book follows two Jewish cousins who create a comic book. Idk but it sounded interesting and it’s a part of another project that I am working on for 2018, so I’m glad that this was my selection for the month.
These are the books that I plan on reading for December. I have a week off of work this month so I plan on getting some reading done while I laze around in my pajamas for a week.
What are you planning on reading for December? What are you most excited about for December? Let’s chat in the comments.
Much Love and Merry Blogmas,
