#Blogmas: Books I want to read this Christmas

Back in October I made a dream TBR as well as an actual TBR. I was in the middle of a ton of books when I wrote the actual TBR and I managed to not finish all of them. (Shocking, I know). Well, December I’m hoping to lump them together and actually accomplish it.

I’m in the middle of The Godfather, The Dark Net, The Testaments, The Shack and The Favorite Daughter.

I’ve also decided I’m just going to read War and Peace from the beginning again next year. I was only 82 pages in and I’m going to listen to that part again. However, there’s no possible way I’ll finish it this year and I don’t really like being in the middle of a book at the end of the year.

This December I’m hoping to read:

The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

This was a novel that last March-ish my store manager told me to read and I got major winter vibes so I was holding off on it until there was snow on the ground. Which there now is.

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

This was a book I was going to read by the fireplace. It was also giving me winter vibes so I wanted to read it in December as well. This is a series so if I enjoy the first one I’ll be able to get more out of it.

Homicide in Hardcover by Kate Carlisle

A couple years ago I was really in the mood to read a cozy mystery for the first time and I got a couple books into the series before being annoyed with repeated phrases and such but I also bought this one at the time so I want to try this series.

The House Swap by Rebecca Fleet

The Holiday is my favorite holiday movie. This book is basically the same idea but as a thriller.

Tunnel of Bones by Victoria Schwab

I asked my library to purchase this book because they have the first one and the children deserve to have the sequel. Also I didn’t want to own the second but not the first.

What books are on your December TBR?

  1. Reading The Bear and the Nightingale by the fireplace sounds just lovely. I will admit I read the first chapter already and it is written beautifully so far. Good luck with all of your reading Jenna!

  3. I am a fan of Jack Black. Apparently it’s available on Direct TV. So I need to remember to search when I get home later. I’ve been in such a Christmas Movie spirit. Greg and I just saw White Christmas last night.
