We made it to the end of the year! And what a speedy fast year this was, right? Typically in December, I will set aside the month to play catch up, and go back and read some review books that slipped through the cracks. This year, I’m going to try something different. I actually have a handful of December titles to review (which is a little unusual), and for the rest of the month, I’m going to start my January review books in order to get ahead. Gasp! I know, that’s something I’ve never been very successful at, but I’ve been so stressed and busy lately, and I feel bad when I can’t read all my review books, that I’m going to try to start the new year ahead of the blogging game.
So you won’t see everything I’m going to be reading below, because any January titles I read will be saved for posting in January. Here is some of what I’d like to read this month (a few of these are stragglers from last month):
Dragon and Thief by Timothy Zahn. I’m reading this middle grade (?) novel right now, and should be finished soon. It’s short and sweet, so look for my review soon.
Haven, Kansas by Alethea Kontis. I’m really looking forward to this horror novel, one with a beautiful cover, I might add!
Dark Shadows: Heiress of Collinwood by Lara Parker. This came out in October, I think, so this will be a catch-up book for sure.
Last Year by Robert Charles Wilson. A surprise arrival from Tor, but one I’m intrigued by. I hope to squeeze this in!
Congress of Secrets by Stephanie Burgis. Totally couldn’t get to this last month, so it’s back on December’s plate.
The Face-Faker’s Game by Chandler J. Birch. Another November title that has been getting some very good reviews.
Slipping by Lauren Beukes. I’ve also read some great reviews for Beukes’ collection, which includes a few non-fiction pieces as well.
Other stuff this month:
No Book Review Giveaway this month, but I’m actually running another giveaway right now that is almost a BRG. So check it out, there is so much to choose from!
Also, look for the start of a long run of “Top Ten” lists: the best books of 2016 are coming your way, along with some other fun lists for Top Ten Tuesdays!
And that’s my month! I hope to have a relaxed blogging month and not put too much pressure on myself. Don’t be surprised if I don’t post as many reviews, but rest assured I will be reading a lot:-)
What are your plans for December?
