Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
I cannot believe I am sharing my final TBR of the year! I decided to combine my November and December TBR into one post, as I am not sure how much I will be able to read during the end of this month, as I will have exams and essays to take care of before doing any reading. However, I have the majority of December off, so I hope to be able to complete all of these unfinished books during those few weeks! Of course, I have some books on pre-order that I am ecstatic to read (*cough* Barack Obama’s memoir *cough*), but these are all of the books I already own that I hope to read before 2021!
The first book I hope to complete is BAD FEMINIST by Roxane Gay. As you can see by the book mark barely sticking out of my copy, I have already started this book and am about 60-pages through. November is well-known in the book community as “Non-Fiction November”, and while I have a few other non-fiction books that I have on order from A Different Booklist that I hope to read, I am definitely excited to finally read this one and see if it lives up to all of the hype!
The second book I hope to complete before the new year is GOODNIGHT BEAUTIFUL by Aimee Molloy. I have been interested in this novel since I heard about it at the beginning of the year, and have been hearing very mixed thoughts about it. Needless to say, I hope I love it!
The third book I hope to read is SUCH A FUN AGE by Kiley Reid. This book has been on my monthly TBRs since the summertime, but I have yet to actually pick it up and read it! I am hoping to complete this novel very, very soon!
I then hope to read BIRD BOX by Josh Malerman. Believe it or not, I have still not watched the Netflix adaptation of this novel, as I wanted to read the novel before I watched the movie. Luckily, it was available on Book Outlet, and is actually much shorter than I had originally anticipated!
From there, I hope to read YOU SHOULD SEE ME IN A CROWN by Leah Johnson. I cannot remember the last time I read a YA contemporary novel, and I plan on picking this one up as I have heard nothing but great things about it!
Next, I hope to read THE NIGHT SWIM by Megan Goldin. A lot of people I follow on Instagram have named this book as there #1 thriller of the year, so I hope to love it as much as they did!
Heading into December, I hope to read ANXIOUS PEOPLE by Fredrik Backman. I purchased this book on it’s release day, as I was so excited to read it! Unfortunately, due to the lack of reading time I have had recently, I have not been able to read this one yet. I have heard some negative reviews about this one lately, but am hoping to love it in spite of those reviews.
From there, I hope to read IN A HOLIDAZE by Christina Lauren. I received this ARC from Simon & Schuster Canada in September, but am saving it for December to read and review since it is a book surrounding the holiday of Christmas! Luckily, I have read some fantastic reviews about this book, and hope it becomes my #1 Christina Lauren book thus far!
Continuing with recently published ARCs, I hope to complete EVEN IF WE BREAK by Marieke Nijkamp. I have read one Nijkamp book before, and I believe it was her 2014 or 2015 release! I remember enjoying it quite a bit, and hope to enjoy this one as well.
The second-last book I hope to complete before 2021 is THE WOMAN OUTSIDE MY DOOR by Rachel Ryan. This one intrigued me so much when I first heard of it, and am so thankful to Simon & Schuster Canada for providing me with an ARC!
The final book I hope to read is RAPTURE by Nick Nurse. Nick Nurse, the head coach of the 2019 NBA Champion Toronto Raptors, is a huge book lover, and I figured that after the championship, he would get around to writing a memoir! I am so thankful to HBG Canada for sending me a finished copy of this memoir, and I cannot wait to get to it!
Those are the final 11 books I hope to read before 2021! What are you hoping to read over the last two months of 2020?
Good Night Book Owls!
