December 2019 To Be Read

We are more than a week into December, but I’m finally getting around to posting (well and writing!) my December TBR list.

Like many book lovers, I have an obscene amount of unread books that I own; between Kindle, hard copy, and audio books – I’m currently sitting around owning 78 books that I still need to read, not including some fun leadership books, because honestly, who counts those?

Earlier this year I was well over 120 – so I’ve definitely made a great little dent, but even as the books are read, the backlog continues to grow. Because I CAN’T. STOP. BUYING. BOOKS.

I digress. My December TBR list is a mix of all modalities, but I’m really hoping to focus on my hard copy books so I can clear out some space for all the new ones I’m going to acquire in 2020.

  1. A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny (hard copy) completed
  2. His Garden: Conversations with a Serial Killer by Anne K. Howard (hard copy) completed
  3. Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell (hard copy) completed
  4. Beauty & the Beast by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont (Kindle) completed
  5. Queen of Tearling by Erika Johansen (Kindle)
  6. Nothing is Okay by Rachel Wiley (audiobook) completed
  7. I’ll Be Watching You by Agatha Christie (hard copy)
  8. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens (Kindle)
  9. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou (hard copy)
  10. The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides (Kindle)

My December TBR are all books I own. However, I couldn’t resist picking up one at the library that’s been on my wishlist, as well as committing to a long-term read that I own, but going to take me FOREVER to get through:

  • Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman (library)
  • The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (long-term read)

So much to read – so little time. What’s on your list this month?

Adventure awaits,

    I recently read Louise Penny’s Fatal Grace and found it quite enjoyable. How did you get along with it? I will definitely continue with the series at some point. Also, I have Dicken’s A Christmas Carol as audiobook – always fun to listen to before Christmas. I loved Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine and hope you will as well!

      I liked A Fatal Grace and look forward to the rest of the series!

      A Christmas Carol is a must for the holidays – looking forward to reading it for the first time this year. I’ve seen several movie versions, but looking forward to curling up with the book.

      Any top ones on your TBR list this month?

        I am one of the few book bloggers, who don’t have a TBR (weird, I know!) So I will just go with the flow and see what I feel like reading. Hope you enjoy A Christmas Carol!
