I know it’s a bit early for a December TBR post, but I’ve been thinking/strategizing a lot about what books I want to finish before the end of the year and I think I’ve finally got at least some of it mapped out. Also, I’m leaving for vacation in less than a week, and I’m thinking I’ll likely not finish very many more books in November before that happens.
My December TBR seems to be falling into 2 categories:
Books from my physical TBR that I really need to finish before the end of 2021:
All the Birds, Singing by Evie Wyld (literary fiction) is the final book from my Top 10 2021 TBR list; Out Front the Following Sea by Leah Angstman (historical fiction) is an ARC that comes out very early in 2022, so I want to make sure I read and review it well before its release date; A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas (fantasy romance), which was one of my most anticipated releases of 2021 but I’m having a hard time actually reading it because I hate one of the main characters; and Comfort Me with Apples by Catherynne M. Valente (mystery?), because I aim to read one Valente book per year.
Holiday-themed books that I’d like to pick up since I’m only really drawn towards these at a certain time of year:
I’m Jewish, so I don’t really ever tend to read holiday romances, but this year there are 2 Christmas romance novellas that sound really cute and fun (as well as a Hanukkah romance!), so I’m going to give them a try: Wrapped Up in You by Talia Hibbert (contemporary romance), because Talia Hibbert is one of my favorite romance writers and I’m trying to delve more into her backlist; The Mistletoe Motive by Chloe Liese (contemporary romance), which is being recommended for fans of one of my favorite romances, The Hating Game; The Matzah Ball by Jean Meltzer, which is the first mainstream Hanukkah romance I’ve heard of so far; and Murder Most Actual (mystery) by Alexis Hall, which isn’t actually holiday-themed but is a cozy winter mystery that seems like a great December pick.
