December 2017 TBR

How is it already December?! I have basically lost all track of days and/or time lately. But, I’m going to try to get back on track for December and I figured a TBR would be the best way to do that. These aren’t in any particular order, just books I hope to get to this month.

  1. Turtles All the Way Down by John Green – I’ve been waiting for this book to come out for MONTHS but I haven’t gotten a chance to read it because I’ve been trying to blow through everything I have checked out from the library.
  2. The Power by Naomi Alderman – I am so excited for this book and I’ve heard good things. I got it as my Book of the Month pick in October and It’s been sitting on my desk ever since.
  3. Amberlough by Lara Elena Donelley – I bought this one as soon as it came out because Cabaret-style spy novels with queer rep sounded right up my alley. I started it and was really enjoying it and then lost all of my reading-during-my-work-shift time. I have it on audio so if I can master the art of reading things for content while listening to things, I can get through it pretty quickly.
  4. Bonfire by Krysten Ritter – This is another “omg I was so excited for this” book that I got from Book of the Month. I haven’t read a thriller in a while and I think this would be a good one to jump back into things with.
  5. The Diviners by Libba Bray – I’ve had this on my shelf for MONTHS since I picked it up for cheap at Book Outlet and I really love Libba Bray. I’ve heard amazing things but this one is a chunker.


So audiobook list is probably my secret shame. I own SO MANY audiobooks thanks to and Audible. I’m hoping to get through more now that it is giftmas knitting season and if I could stop watching booktube while I’m knitting I could listen to things instead!

  1.  As You Wish by Cary Elwes – I love The Princess Bride and a book about the making of the movie and it’s legacy narrated by the cast sounds amazing.
  2. Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham – I am also a Gilmore Girls fan (I know, I know, your favs are problematic, but let me have this!) and I think a autobiography from that time in Lauren Graham’s life has the potential to be fantastic.
  3. Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero – Scooby Doo meets Cthulhu meets John Dies at the End was enough to sell me on this book.

If I get through all of these in December I will be shocked. But I do also have some other stuff I’m in the middle of, and some stuff I have checked out of the library so things will change based on when things come off hold as well.
