Good morning! Welcome back to another post, dear friends. Today, I’m going to be sharing with you my TBR for December, including the books that I’ve already read so far this month.
Last month, I had a TBR of 13 books, and I only read 8, which was kind of disappointing. But, I still think it helps me to have an idea of the books that I’m going to read, so I’m going to continue having a TBR. If I plan on reaching my GR goal, hopefully I’ll read 12 more books this month.
Let’s get started.
- Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas. (Read: Dec. 1) This was so so so much better than the first book, and we actually got to see Celaena in action. The disaster that happened in the second half was nervewracking and the final reveal was surprising. However, it all made sense and I can’t wait to see where the rest of the series goes.
- The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi. (Read Dec. 3) I really liked it, but the ending just left me feeling kind of disappointed? I’m not sure why, but it just didn’t feel right. I can defintiely see why it’s compared to Six of Crows, and while there are several similarities, both books are still different and unique in their own way. The characters were pretty great (Zofia, Enrique, and Hypnos were my favorite), the heists were okay, but the puzzles were amazing. That very last twist at the end though completely surprised me.
- The Lines We Cross by Randa Abdel-Fattah. (Read Dec. 6) This was okay. I’m really disappointed, because the Muslim rep is pretty much non-existent. Mina was aggravating, Michael was meh, the politics were interesting, and I loved Paula, Nathan, Mum and Baba. But overall this book was just meh and very disappointing.
- Hungry Hearts. This is so far pretty good, but my two favorite stories are Moments to Return, and Kings and Queens. I loved all the food description in MTR and I really related to the MC’s fear of death, because I sometimes have moments where it terrifies me too. K&Q was really interesting and I would really love a full length novel about it. However, my hold is almost up for this, so I might have to wait to finish the rest of the book.
- The Final Empire. I’m just a few chapters in, but I like Vin, Kell strikes me as a hot-headed genius, and I wish Camon would disappear off the face of the Earth 🙂
I’m kind of tired of YA and Fantasy books right now, so I want to go back to reading more thrillers and mystery novels. However, I’ve already borrowed some fantasy books, so I’m still going to finish reading those.
