At the end of November, I asked you guys how you felt about monthly TBRs. I personally really enjoy them, but I do find them stressful when I restrict myself to a set amount of books. I also get a bit annoyed at myself if I don’t read every single book on the list and I then refuse to carry books over to the next month out of spite. So this year I’ll be sharing my TBR each month, but I won’t be so restrictive. I tend to read about ten books per month, so to keep myself from getting too stressed about this I’ll be sharing between five and ten books that I would like to read. And I’ve made a promise to myself that I won’t get stressed out if I don’t get to them.
I bought this book for myself for my birthday in November, and as luck would have it, it was chosen for my December book club pick. I’m two books behind, so I need to get a move on and read this. I’m very excited for some fantasy! I have the audiobook as well, so I’ll hopefully be listening to that. The narrator’s voice was amazing in the sample that I listened to so I bought it there and then.
This is a book club pick for a different book club – one that I’m not behind on! Woo! I’m always here for historical fiction, and the main character of this one is Aussie. YES.
I don’t know much about this (I’d like it to stay that way, please!) but it’s probably going to make me cry.
I’ve had Red Queen on my Kindle for the longest time, and I’m excited to finally be reading it! Joan and I will be buddy reading it in time for the sequel’s release next month.
Neil Gaiman has been very hit and miss with me so far, but this is the second book club pick that I’m behind on. I hope I can get into it!
The main character is a slave and that’s all I know. I want to read this one ASAP!
I really, really hope this is a good debut, because it has such potential! I love assassin stories.
I got this one from my friend as a Christmas present and I want to read it very soon! It’s been on my wishlist since it was announced, so I’m thrilled to finally be able to get to it! Post-apocalyptic novels are my favourite.
This is another one that I know very little about, and it’s another book club pick that I need to get to. Literally all I know is that it’s been translated from Danish, and it has been compared to The Shadow of the Wind. Which I haven’t read. Oops?
If you have read any of these books then you should let me know what you thought of them! Or tell me which ones I should prioritise and review first. I’m particularly excited about Orleans and Red Queen, but I can’t wait to read any of them.
