December TBR

Last moth was a little squiffy when it came to reading but I’m feeling more confident about this month’s list and I’m ready to take on a whole new year of challenges in 2020. But for this month, I’ve got a pretty good line-up, I think!

Let’s check it out:

Book Riot’s Read Harder Challenge 2019:

🥳 I’ve completed this challenge!!! 🥳

I’m pretty stoked about finishing a month early. I set a decent pace for myself and I accomplished my goal, so I’m really happy!

Reading Women Challenge 2019:

🥳 I’ve completed this challenge!!! 🥳

As I said above, couldn’t be more pleased. I really enjoyed this challenge and I’m looking forward to next years!

Our Shared Shelf Nov/Dec Pick:

Whose Story Is This? by Rebecca Solnit

I meant to read this last month – it’s not very long, but I just didn’t get to it. I’m very curious to read it, since I’ve not read anything by Solnit, though her book Men Explain Things to Me did pique my interest when I first saw it come out. I hope this one is as enlightening as it sounds!

ARC of the Month:

How Quickly She Disappears by Raymond Fleischmann: Since I didn’t do much reading in November, I didn’t really pick this book up. But this is definitely a book I want to get to this month. Not only is it set in a wintery climate, it’s also set to be published in January, so I definitely want to get to it now so that I’ll have my review ready for it’s pub date.

My TBR Picks:

Frankly in Love by David Yoon

So, as soon as I heard about this book, I wanted to read it. Not only is it about Korean-Americans (major check on my interest list), but it’s also diverse and seems to have a friends to lovers plot, which I’ve always found interesting. I’m hoping to really love this book and I also hope I can get through it soon, since this is also a book I got on hold from my library and it’s due soon, with a long hold list.

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood

So, it’s about time that I read this book. My library hold arrived at the end of November, but I really didn’t get to it then. Now, it’s due back in two days! I’m really hoping I can finish it in time. So far, it’s been really interesting and I’m curious to see how it ends. I will definitely take the hit if I don’t finish it in time and pay the fines, because the holds list for this book is loooong!

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

So, I didn’t really make any progress with this book last month. This is not a reflection of my feelings for the book. On the contrary, I’ve found it to be quite interesting and Tartt’s writing to be fabulous. It’s just very slow in plot development, so I end up reading it in spurts. It’s also 400+ pages, so there’s also that. I also had other books I needed to get to first last month. Here’s hoping I can get to this one.

What books are you reading this month?

If you’ve read any books from my list, let me know what you think! Do you have any of these selections on your TBR? Let me know in the comments!

It’s another month of reading dangerously and I hope I’m up to the challenge!

  1. Rebecca Solnit is an excellent writer! I hope you enjoy her book. My December reading is going to mostly be me trying to catch up on library books and new releases so I can finish out the year strong. Good luck with your tbr!

    1. Great! I’m looking forward to reading Solnit’s book. And I’m sort of doing the same thing with catching up on library books. Hopefully we both accomplish our final goals for the year!

      1. Oh, yeah! How did I not remember! Well, I haven’t read that series, yet, though I do want to. A friend of mine reads it and loves it, so I want to check it out, for sure.
