December 2015 TBR

decembertbr2

Happy December, everyone! If you celebrated Thanksgiving, I hope you had a wonderful holiday, and if not, then a wonderful end of November. 🙂 I just finished up a lovely week spending time with my family (and baking tons of cookies!), and I’m ready to get back into the swing of things here on my blog.

December is shaping up to be the month of reading books I planned to read earlier this year but haven’t gotten around to yet. Many of these have already appeared on previous TBRs, so I think most won’t come as a surprise. The first four in particular are ones that I am absolutely determined to read before the year is out, and if I don’t, you all have permission to yell at me in the comments on my December wrap-up!

December TBR

1. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

The time is finally here! I will, without fail, be reading The Book Thief this month. I am a million years late with this, but I am so excited to finally have the chance to read it. I am ready for all the sadness and awesomeness that are bound to come out of this novel! I’ll probably be saving this until later in the month, but it is definitely my most anticipated read.

2. Vicious by V.E. Schwab

This is another one I’ve had on my shelves (and my TBRs) for a long time now, and it’s about time I get to it! I have heard nothing but incredible things about this novel and it has been recommended to me countless times. This is totally my kind of story, so I’m incredibly eager to dive into it and see what all the hype is about!

3. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Okay, I have absolutely no excuse for this one. I have been meaning to read this all year, and yet here we are in December and it is still on my TBR. I will definitely finish this by the end of the month. I need to continue on and complete this series; I have to know what happens next!

4. The Grownup by Gillian Flynn

I am absolutely dying to read some more of Gillian Flynn’s work, and I just picked up a copy of this short story. Since December is pretty hectic, this is absolutely perfect to tide me over until I have a chance to read another one of her full novels. This story sounds absolutely fantastic and I can’t wait to get started on it.

December is a fairly busy month for me, so I am trying to keep my TBR fairly small. However, these next two books are ones that I would like to get to if I have extra reading time this month. If I can’t, they will roll over to my January TBR!

5. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

6. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Read in November

I have been in a bit of a reading slump for a few months now, but I am finally beginning to emerge from it! 🙂 Because of this, I plan on starting to do more thorough monthly wrap-ups in the new year. For now, here is a brief one for this past month!

  1. I LOVE Gillian Flynn’s books! I can’t wait to read your thoughts on both of those books, I loved them both! I also have “Vicious” on my TBR so I can’t wait for your review of that as well! You have so many great books on here! 🙂

    • Me too! She is absolutely fantastic! Definitely one of my new favorite authors. I’m excited to read her other work, but also sad because I’m totally going to go through Gillian Flynn withdrawal afterward! Haha 😀 I can’t wait to get to Vicious; I think it’s definitely going to be awesome! I know you’re a fellow superhero/villain fan, so I’ll be eager to hear what you think of it too when you read it! I have a feeling these are all going to be some fun books to discuss 🙂

      • Oh yes Gillian Flynn withdrawal, she just doesn’t have enough books out yet! I read them too fast! Haha. “Vicious” needs to move up my TBR now so we can talk about it, hopefully it won’t disappoint (doubt it) and will be a lot of fun! 🙂

      • I know! I hope she writes more soon. We need more! I’m trying to pace myself, but it’s way too difficult! Haha 🙂 Definitely! That would be awesome 😀 I’m sure it’s going to be incredible; it’s one of the few extremely hyped books where I’m actually not worrying about whether it will live up to that hype or not!

  2. Glad to know there’s another person who hasn’t read The Book Thief 😀 I heard nothing but good reviews of that book so I hope you enjoy.
    I also haven’t read the Gillian Flynn’s short stories but I have the rest of her books. She’s a wickedly talented writer, isn’t she?
