Hello, my lovelies!
Well, here we are, at the end of the year, with my December TBR. It has gone so fast, I honestly can’t believe it will be 2020 next month.
November was a happy month for me. I celebrated my birthday and my anniversary, I spent some time off work and I did some exciting things (rock climbing and bouldering). And still, with all my free time, I didn’t manage to read much.
November was a weak month from a reading perspective, and I have to be honest, I felt pressured to read every day, which made me read even less. So this month, I will not care how much I read, and read purely for my enjoyment. Hopefully the Christmas euphoria around me will restore my reading habits. .
As I have announced in my TBR Update, I have changed the way I am choosing my books – if you haven’t read this update yet, please go and have a look.
All the books that are currently on my TBR can be found HERE. This is the list that I will choose from when spinning the wheel.
My December TBR
I always start with 8 books on my TBR, because this is what I read on average. If I happen to read all of them, I will add a few more books at the end of the month. If I don’t manage to read the books from last month, I don’t unhaul them. They go into the next month’s list automatically, which leaves me with less spins. This month I have 4 books that are extended, which leaves me with 4 spins.
These are the 8 books I am planning to read this December:
Guess what? I haven’t managed to read Dracula yet. I don’t know what is happening, I am usually quite good with sticking to one book, but this one is giving me a hard time.
A Darker State stays as well, as I didn’t manage to get to it last month.
A mystery / crime novel, where a teenage boy’s body is found and the main character of this book (and series), Karin, is investigating the mystery. I haven’t read the previous books of the series, but it one of those that you don’t have to read the in order, as they are all standalone mysteries, it is just Karin that stays the same.
I didn’t manage to read this book last month, so I am keeping it for December. I think I will be in a mood for romance during the holidays.
Two people. Ten classic films. A love story you’ll never forget.
Arden has just started university when she meets Mac – and quickly falls head over heels for the handsome, charismatic film lecturer. Their love affair is dramatic, exciting and all-consuming; the sort of thing you only see in the movies.
It couldn’t last. But thirty years later, leading a very different life, Arden is visiting a friend in hospital when she suddenly comes across the man she never forgot. Badly injured in an accident, Mac can only make brief references to the classic films they once watched together: Casablanca, A Star is Born, Pretty Woman among others… and they make Arden remember everything.
The bittersweet memories of their relationship help Arden re-connect with the world in a way she no longer thought was possible. But will a movie-worthy love ever be hers again?
After reading Scythe by Neal Shusterman, I wanted to read this book so badly. Luckily, Thunderhead was one of many books my boyfriend bought for my birthday and our anniversary last month, and when the spin landed on Gift, I knew I had to read this one.
I have had this book for a while now, and I think I will enjoy the mystery in it. It is a young-adult / middle grade book that focuses on two young girls, who study at the private Moore Field School. When there is a danger that the school might be closed, and a mystery avails, they go into action.
Spin: New Author
I am actually quite excited about this one, as it is a new author for me, and also a mystery. It comes out on 10th December, so it will one of the first books I read this month. Cannot wait.
Everything I have read so far from Sarah Morgan – I loved! And this Christmas, I was lucky enough to receive this book from the publishers, so I can read it right in time before the end of the year. A Wedding in December is already on the top of the lists across UK, and I am hyped to read it.
Thriller with mysterious neighbors, when Karen moves into the new house, it might not be as idyllic as she thought it would be. I am very excited to read The Move. I think I will love it!
And that’s my December TBR ! I hope I will manage to read all of these books, and I hope that maybe I can squeeze in one or two more, before the end of the month and end of the year?
