Currently reading way too many books // December TBR


It’s been one of those days today. And by “one of those days” I mean I was on my bedroom floor crying this morning all because it was Derek’s last episode in Criminal Minds and named his fictional son after Spencer.

To make myself feel better I’ve eaten some Terry’s white chocolate orange (top tier) and plan on eating the rest of my ice-cream later. I also thought I’d talk about some books I’m gonna be hopefully reading this month!

So I’m currently read four books. Don’t ask me why. I don’t know how this happened. I was just very excited about starting all of these that I somehow did it all at once. Because I’m anticipating a busy month, I’ll be happy if I just finish these.

The Coldest Touch by Isabel Sterling – I’m only on chapter two but I’m already intrigued. Sapphic vampire’s have been all the range this year and I’ve not read enough of them at all. I enjoyed Sterling’s previous novels and look forward to continuing on with this one.

Homie by Danez Smith – After spending the first half of the semester reading poetry I liked one of those poets enough to read anything else by them. I read one collection of theirs already but had to wait for my hold to become available at the library.

Anna K by Jenny Lee – I’ve wanted to read this one for a long while and finally picked it up the other week. Because I’m reading so many other things at the minute, it’s been pretty slow going with Anna K. I have enjoyed what I’ve so far read though. Anna herself seems like an enjoyable character to read from and I feel like I’m going to enjoy the drama that’s gonna go down.

Young Bucks: Killing the Business from Backyards to the Big Leagues – I watch wrestling on the weekly and stay up till 5 in the morning to watch the pay-per-views. That’s how big of a nerd I am which is why it shouldn’t be surprise to you that I bought and am reading this autobiography. I discovered this new company and this group of wrestlers early last year and have been obsessed ever since. I’m looking forward to continue reading about how they kind of revolutionised the independent wrestling scene which led to them creating their own company.

Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo – One more week of uni and then I have a couple weeks off which, fingers crossed, means lots of reading time. I might be being presumptuous but I feel like this one will be perfect on a nice rainy day with a cup of tea. I’m excited.

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo – I re-read Six of Crows early this year and shared my favourite quotes and moments. I want to do the same thing with the sequel. Also I’ve only read Crooked Kingdom once which, in my eyes, is unacceptable.

*weeps because of the downgrade not only in cover style but also title name*

My grandma kindly treat me to a couple of my most anticipated sequels when I moved to Uni, one of them being Mister Impossible. The only problem is I remember barely anything from Call Down the Hawk. I haven’t been able to re-read it yet because it’s in my bedroom in Spain so I think I’ll pack the sequel and hopefully read it while I’m there.

In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan – I don’t want to think of how many TBRs this book has been on at this point. In an ideal world I’d have time to read this before flying home so I could take it back with me. This is not an ideal world, however, and I’m gonna be a busy bee this next week so who knows. We may be seeing this book show up on my January TBR too.

The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic – Re-reading this series is a yearly tradition I would like to stick to. Only problem is that I haven’t read it yet in 2021. I got myself an e-book copy and I’m thinking I’m gonna read it on the flight home.

So those are the books I’m hoping to get to in the final month of 2021. I’m only 7 books away from having read 100 books this year. Am I gonna reach it?? I really hope so but I’m not going to put too much preassure on myself.

If you’ve read any of these, I’d love to hear your thoughts and feelings. I’d also love to know what you’re planning on reading this month. Thanks for reading :))
