Bookish Item | December TBR

I can’t believe I’m already thinking about what I want to read the last month of this year! In many ways 2020 has flown by, but it’s also gone by incredibly slow. Hopefully 2021 turns out to be an amazing for everyone! But first let’s talk about what I want to read next month in my December TBR!

Last week I posted a post “My Boyfriend Chose my TBR” and hope to read at least a few of these in December. I don’t know which ones or when, so I won’t add them directly to my TBR, but if you’re curious, check it out!

Blog Tours

The Bitterwine Oath – Hannah West A cult claims twelve men to murder in a small town every fifty years. This sounds like a darker book, but one that’s going to be very interesting. Not the lightest book for a festive month, haha, but it sounds so good!

The Ballad of Ami Miles – Kristy Dallas Alley Again, this is probably a darker book. A dystopian where the main character flees after her grandfather arranges a marriage with a stranger. It’s going to be interesting to see what she discovers in this new world.

A Wolf for a Spell -Karah Sutton I’ve never read a Baba Yaga retelling, but this book sounds like fun. I have a feeling it’ll be a magical adventure.

Group Reads

Bone Crier’s Moon – Kathryn Purdie I actually started reading this one in September and got 25% in. And of course, I got distracted! I was enjoying this, so I’m glad we’re doing a group read in TBR and Beyond and I’ll finally sit down and finish this one.


Holiday Reads

If you haven’t figured it out already, I’m a big Christmas fan. I’ve been watching Christmas movies since October and plan on watching for awhile, haha. There are some holiday related books I really want to read to keep my holiday mood going.

One Way or Another – Kara McDowell I planned on reading this in October, but plans changed when my reading month didn’t go as smooth as I was hoping. I think I’ll enjoy reading this one even more right before Christmas.

All I Want for Christmas – Wendy Loggia I knew I had to read this one when I read in the synopsis that the main character loves Christmas just as much as I do! I have a feeling this is going to be a fast, fun and festive read!

The Christmas Pact – Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward The trope enemies to lovers is one of my favorites and I have a feeling this one is going to be added to my favorites list. The Christmas Pact is a novella, so I’ll be done in no time.

The Twelve Dates of Christmas -Jenny Bayliss Twelve dates to find love before Christmas. I know that’s going to be interesting. I’m counting on some funny dates and maybe some heartwarming moments.

Write Before Christmas – Julie Hammerle I only recently saw this title and it sounds like fun. The main character is an author. I can never say no to that. This is another shorter read, so I’ll be able to fit it in in December!

Mind the Gap, Dash & Lily – Rachel Cohn & David Levithan I read the two previous Dash & Lily books and I only found out about this one today. I love the cover and I need to continue reading their story, especially with the show coming out on Netflix.

My Life as a Holiday Album – LJ Evans I keep saying this when I talk about LJ’s books, but I love this author and she really is a favorite of mine. So I know I’m going to love My Life as a Holiday Album. She’s giving us novellas with the original cast’s children. I can’t say no to that. Or to the playlist she creates with every book!

Backlist Books

We do a looking back at our bookhauls post every month and I’m really afraid to look at mine for December 2019. I got quite a few books for Christmas, but I have a feeling I haven’t read many. So before having to write the post in January I’m hoping to read a few from that haul.

Now Entering Addamsville – Francesca Zappia Eliza and Her Monsters was one of my favorite books a few years ago. I’ve been excited for Now Entering Addamsville since it released, but it’s just one of those books I haven’t gotten around to. I wanted to read it this Halloween, but I’m now aiming to read this one before Christmas.

Heart of Iron – Ashley Poston I’ve read contemporary books by this author, but I’m really curious about this Anastasia retelling. The cover is stunning and the second book is already out there, so I know what to get if I love this one.

Serious Moonlight – Jenn Bennett As a contemporary fan, I love books by this author. Serious Moonlight is a contemporary with a little mystery. I’ve heard great things about it, so I’m really excited!

We Set the Dark on Fire – Tehlor Kay Meija The cover was the first thing I noticed about this book and the sequel has a cover that’s just as amazing. Friends of mine have all loved this book, so I hope I do as well.

This TBR is definitely shorter than quite a few of the others I’ve posted, but I’ve been in a weird reading mood lately. Also, I don’t know how busy December is going to be and what I’ll be in the mood for. What do you plan on reading this December? Let me know in the comments!
