Books I plan to read in December

I'm linking up with Sheila at The Deliberate Reader again today to share my December TBR list.

Last month was a pretty good reading month. I read 7 of the 8 books I planned to read in November, as well as 2 unplanned books. And I finished the last book on my October TBR list.

I have some catching up to do, and I want to start the new year fresh with no books or challenges carrying over, so I am planning a lighter month for December.

I'll be reading these 7 books this month.


Happily Ever After (The Selection #0.4, #0.5, #2.5, #2.6) by Kiera Cass
How did I get it: I borrowed this book from the library.
Why did I get it: I've already read The Guard and The Prince, but I couldn't resist getting this book to read The Queen and The Favorite since it's available in print format. Bonus: This book contains pictures and other interesting things from the series. I can't wait to read it. And I love the cover!


Career of Evil (Comoran Strike #3) by Robert Galbraith
How did I get it: I borrowed it from the library
Why did I get it: This book came in a lot sooner than expected. But I love this series, so I'm excited to read this next book by J.K. Rowling.


The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave #1) by Rick Yancey
How did I get it: I borrowed it from the library, but then Sarah got it on Audible, so I'll probably end up listening to it instead of reading it because my library book can't be renewed.
Why did I get it: I think it's safe to say that I have a problem with series. I cannot resist reading them! This is our YA Book Club book for December.


All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
How did I get it: I borrowed the audiobook from the library.
Why did I get it: Since I couldn't read this book for my 2015 Reading Challenge category of "a book everyone has read but you" in July, I am reading this for "a book on the bestseller list" in December.


Let It Snow (Three Holiday Romances) by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle
How did I get it: I borrowed it from the library.
Why did I get it: I needed one holiday book. And this is the last book I need to read by John Green, so it seemed like perfect timing.


Americanah by Author
How did I get it: I borrowed it from my friend Colleen a long time ago.
Why did I get it: This book was part of my summer reading challenge, but I never got to it. In an effort to actually read this book, which I have heard great things about, I am adding it to my formal TBR list for December. I will read it this time!


The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katrina Bivald
How did I get it: I'll be reading the eARC from NetGalley.
Why did I get it: I have heard that this book is like The Guersney Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, so when I saw the paperback release on NetGalley, I had to request it. I am super excited to read this book!


What are you reading this month?

  1. I loved Career of Evil. I think it's the best in the series so far! All the light we cannot see was wonderful, too.

    1. Oh good to hear. I've been a little intimidated by the length of Career of Evil. I really need to start it ASAP because it's due back on the 15th, and of course it's not renewable.

      I should finish The 5th Wave on audio by Tuesday (I need to since book club is next Wednesday), and then I can start All the Light We Cannot See. I'm excited for it.

  2. Tw of your books - All the Light We Cannot See and Career of Evil are on hold at the library but I am not sure they will come in this month. I think the ones that will be up are In A Dark, Dark Wood and Why Not Me? I also want to fit in a Christmas book. Enjoy!!

    1. Both of those came in a lot sooner than I expected they would, so it kind of messed up my planned reading for the month. I haven't heard of In A Dark, Dark Wood, and I'm tempted to try Why Not Me? even though it's not my favorite genre. The cover is just so cute. I look forward to your reviews.

  3. I can't remember if it was your blog where I left this comment, but I did read LET IT SNOW last year! I enjoyed it a lot overall. Maureen Johnson's story was my absolute favorite. Surprisingly, I didn't like John Green's as much as the other two! Still very good though.

    1. No. Must have been someone else's. I haven't heard anything about this book. I just want to read everything by John Green. I'm curious about Maureen Johnson's story since I loved her at NerdCon. And I haven't read anything by Lauren Myracle, so that should be fun too.

  4. Career of Evil just came in at the library for me today, which was way earlier than I expected. Can't wait to hear what you think! The title and cover alone on your last pick make me want to read it-and if it's like the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society that's even better :)

    1. I need to start Career of Evil this weekend because I only have until the 15th to finish it. Yikes! :)

  5. All the Light We Cannot See is my book club book for January, so I'll be reading that one soon. I hope it lives up to the hype! :)

  6. I have The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend as well. I too am hoping it is as good as it sounds!
