December TBR

I am really impressed with myself thus far! When I started this blog in October my TBR was around 250, it then managed to increase to 280+ books, but I now have it back to 253 which I think is incredible.

I really want to keep this trend up, but this month is quite awkward, so I don’t have the highest hopes. I start a new job at the beginning of this month which will definitely take up a lot of my time. However, it is also the end of term and Christmas holidays, so there should be plenty of reading opportunities? So I’m going to plan in a cautiously ambitious way, and see how it goes!

I need to read this for YA Bookclub, and I started this at the very end of November. I hope it’s good because the blurb was really intriguing, but the first chapter hasn’t gripped me, so we will see.

All The Crooked Saints – Maggie Stiefvater

I’m reading this one for YA Bookclub also. I have never read a book by Stiefvater before, so I have no idea what to expect. I know her Raven Cycle is really hyped, so I’m hoping this is good and if so, I can pick up The Raven Boys next year and give it a go.

Genuine Fraud – E Lockhart

This was the first ebook I got from NetGalley, but I haven’t read it yet and don’t want it to get out of date. I’m hoping it’ll be mysterious and thrilling, and I’ve heard good things in general about the author, so fingers crossed.

Only Child – Rhiannon Navin

Another ebook from NetGalley. Only Child sounds like a compelling and also terrifying story about the recovery of a community after a tragic event. I read one of these types of books recently, a YA-focused on, which was compelling. This is an adult one, and I’m hoping it is just as good.

Night Break – Andrew Lane

After reading Stone Cold last month I am really eager to continue with this series. I just really want to be immersed in Sherlock’s world again!

Tower of Dawn – Sarah J Maas

I am saving this for the end of the term. The plan – come home, get a glass/cup of something festive and delicious, snuggle with a hot water bottle, and enjoy. I have specifically saved this for that reason and have avoided spoilers so far.

Lair of Dreams – Libba Bray

The Diviners was a really great story that kept me enthralled, so I am really happy to have another two books to read! I picked them up last month but hadn’t gotten to them yet, so I want to dig in over the holiday and indulge in some jazz age fun.

The Bronte Myth – Lucasta Miller

Miller explores all of the myths surrounded the Bronte family and tries to sort the fact from the fiction.  I love the Bronte’s, particularly Emily, and the perfect time to immerse myself back in their lives and that world is the winter.

Wuthering Heights – Emily Bronte (Reread)

Wuthering Heights is my favourite novel, so it is time for a comfy reread and then I’m going to be watching both that and To Walk Invisible, which is fantastic.

Tennant of Wildfell Hall – Anne Bronte

So although I love the Bronte’s, I am yet to read this. I want to rectify that in December.

      1. I’m not sure. I’m over halfway now, and although the story seems to be picking up, I just don’t seem to be enjoying it. I think the pacing is a bit off, like parts are rushed, and other parts have too much focus.
