If you saw my November Wrap Up, you’ll know I haven’t been having the best relationship with reading lately. But I think I figured out why! Aside from distractions like the holidays and Pokémon, I was trying really hard to stick to my November TBR, to the point where I felt confined to that list.
So, while I do want to read all of those books, I wasn’t allowing myself the option to read what I truly felt like reading in the moment. To counter this problem, I decided not to have a concrete TBR in December. Instead, I have several books in mind in case I want to participate in any readalongs, and a reminder of which books have been patiently waiting for me to pick them up. These include:
- The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
- Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
- Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
- A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab
I also hope to finish Heartless by Marissa Meyer and the audiobook of American Gods by Neil Gaiman! I’m kinda picky about voices, but I’ve really been enjoying listening to a book while I cook dinner and do chores around my apartment. And, if I only end up finishing these two and none of the others, I won’t beat myself up! Reading is reading, right?
Do you make monthly TBR lists? What are you excited to read in December?
