TBR Pile: December 2016

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:

Nightstand TBR Pile: December 2016

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:

Kindle TBR Pile: December 2016

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 LevithanThe 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?

    1. OMG. Small Great Things was amazing! I read it last week. I need to get my review together, but it was a powerful book. A snow day for my work but not for my son’s school would be so wonderful!

  1. I understand getting behind on your TBR. And the very reason I’m not on NetGalley is because I’m afraid I would go crazy with requests too. As it is I found out about InstaFreebie recently and went crazy there requesting books. At least I didn’t agree to do blog reviews on all them, cause I truely don’t know when I’ll have time to get to most of them.

    1. Smart idea to stay away from NetGalley. It’s hard because you don’t know when you’ll be approved, so it’s very easy to over-request. I haven’t heard of InstaFreebie, but I think I’ll stay away from it. 🙂
