December is going to be a catch up month for me. I am only adding 2 new books to my TBR pile, and then my goal is to read only books from my back list. My nightstand looks like this:
These are books I had planned to read in October or November, but I just ran out of time or other books got in the way. Then I don’t know what happened, but a few months ago I went crazy on NetGalley and requested a TON of books. I think it was around the time where I stopped getting denied for many books, so while I planned to be approved for only a handful, they all came through as approved, and now I am way behind in my reading there. Here’s a screen shot of my Kindle app on my phone:
It’ll be a busy reading month trying to get caught up, so I can start the new year fresh (or at least fresher).
I am adding 2 new books to my stack though because of a library hold and my YA book club. Here they are.
The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily (Dash & Lily #2) by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
How I got it: I borrowed it from the library.
Why I got it: You know I can’t resist a sequel. I just re-read the original book, and because this is a holiday book, I need to read it this month.
Ghostboy, Chameleon & the Duke of Graffiti by Olivia Wildenstein
How I got it: I bought the Kindle version because my library doesn’t have this book. Luckily, it was on sale for $3.99.
Why I got it: It’s my YA book club selection for December. Annie picked it.
What’s on your TBR pile for the month?
