Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
It is finally December! Does anybody else feel like this year has gone by pretty slowly? Most of the time I feel like the years go by quickly, but this one felt abnormally slow. Any who… December is the month of snow (yuck) and holidays (yay)! I will have a lot of exciting holiday posts for both Christmas, Hanukkah, and whatever else you may celebrate up very soon (including a YA/Bookish Gift Guide next weekend!).
I plan on reading quite a few books this month. If you read yesterdays blog post (November Wrap-Up), you will know that I sadly only read just about 1 and 3/4 books. Since I have quite a bit of reading time during the later end of this month, I have a set list of books that I hope to read and review for either this month or the beginning of next month. Fortunately, I am sent quite a few books from publishing houses every few months, and this month/the very end of November, I received a TON of Winter 2019/Spring 2019 ARCs (I will have a new “In My Mailbox” post up very soon) that I have to read as soon as possible, so I’m hoping to get through most of them this month.
The first three books I plan on reading are the “Shades of Magic” series by V.E. Schwab! I am more than half way thru “A Darker Shade of Magic” and I am really enjoying it so far. I recently purchased the entire box set from Indigo, which I posted an Instagram picture of last week. I plan on binging this series throughout the next week or two (however long it’ll take me to finish), and posting a full series review on my blog when I am finished it. I have heard an abundance of hype for this series, so I hope it lives up to it!
The next book I plan on reading is “The Catcher In The Rye” by J.D. Salinger. Like 1984, I will be reading this with a group for my English Lit class and I am SO excited to finally read this book. I bought it off of Book Outlet a few months ago and have been meaning to read it for a while. When I found out that we were reading this for my class, I could not contain my excitement!
A first weeks ago I requested “Watching You” by Lisa Jewell on NetGalley, and I got approved for it earlier last week! I have been super into Adult Thrillers lately and I have yet to read a Lisa Jewell book. This one sounds like something I would love, so I am so thankful that NetGalley accepted me for this e-ARC!
The last book I plan on reading this month is another eARC from Simon & Schuster Canada via NetGalley. It is titled “The Remarkable Inventions of Walter Martinson” and was written by Quinn Sosna-Spear. I requested this book a while ago, so I was so thankful to get an eARC of it! I believe this book falls in-between the Middle Grade and Young Adult sections, but I think it’s leaning towards more of a Middle Grade. Regardless, the premise of it sounds like so much fun and a great kind of book to read before the new year! The cover is also so interesting and makes the book that much more appealing.
Those are the books I plan on reading this December to end off the year! I am actually going to make another post with my Winter Break reading plans, because by then I will have all of my recent book gifts/ARCs/packages/orders (LOL), so I will have a bit more to chose from and to share for my two and a half weeks of winter break reading!
What are you guys planning on reading this month? Did you post a December TBR? Let me know in the comments, I love chatting with all of you! Make sure to check out my Instagram and Twitter, since I have been really active on both of them recently!
Good Night Book Owls!
