So what better way to curb my bad book accumulating habits then to do a final 2015 reading challenge?
here! If you're interested in cleaning off that TBR pile, go and sign up! Spend your cold December mornings or evenings curled up reading a book.
The challenge is - I have to complete no less than 12 books in the month of December. You might be thinking... can I do it? Is it possible? And it certainly is possible! I'll be balancing my studying for finals and other college stuff along with it, and of course, books are great de-stressors for that end of semester crunch. I'll just try not to get too caught up in them.
But, I must also lessen the growing pile of books, because I know what I have in mind for Christmas gifts. So, to keep the motivation going, I'm going to comprise a list of all the books I (hopefully) will get to this December. This is a combination of library books, NetGalley reads, and books I said I'll read but didn't have enough time to. In no particular order. I'll keep it around 12, but who knows? I might be able to read more!
- Fire Falling by Elise Kova - I actually wanted to read it this month but delivery preorders disagree with my interests, so this will actually be conquered first! When it comes. I can't wait to read more about Vhalla and Aldrik and those epic scenes. (Physical Copy)
- Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray - Again, something I was going to read this month but unfortunately didn't have enough time to. (Physical Copy)
- Winter by Marissa Meyer - Third time of this was supposed to be a November read but I got busy; I really want to find out what happens to Cinder and the gang. (Physical Copy)
- Firsts by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn - I have heard nothing but good things about it, and I can't wait to start it! Atypical contemporary YA is always a plus to me! (NetGalley)
- We Were Liars by E. Lockhart - Definitely another interesting contemporary! I also renewed this a few times from the library should probably get on that.. (Library)
- Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas - I read Throne of Glass a few months ago, and I do want to catch up at some point, so why not now?
- The Appearance of Annie van Sinderen by Katherine Howe - A mystery in the heart of NYC, near NYU no less (it used to be my dream school!) (Library)
- Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon - Again another book I've heard a ton of positive things about, and the third book I've read this year about a girl conquering her disabilities/disorders, so I'm interesting in seeing how this will unfold. (NetGalley)
- A Dance with Dragons by George RR Martin - Okay, any book by GRRM is huge. They take me a week or so to finish. This will be not be attempted until after finals. I repeat, I am not going to give myself the pain of finishing this until after finals. (Physical Copy)
- Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson - This was on my Fall TBR, and being a combination of fantasy/historical fiction? Two of my favorite genres? I'm intrigued. (Physical Copy, ARC)
- Burn for Burn by Jenny Han, Siobhan Vivian - To cope with my lack of Peter K and PS I Still Love You, I will read another Jenny Han book. (Physical Copy)
- Jackaby by William Ritter - Another mystery, and this time it takes place in Victorian England. Do I smell a Jack the Ripper in here? (Library)
|I have this much to read and more!!|
