2020 was not easy for all of us, especially with the whole world on lockdown or quarantine and are all so ready to leave this year behind and hope the best for 2021. Yet I still couldn’t bring myself to believe that we’re already down to the last month of the year!
So now I’m down to my last TBR for 2020. Honestly, I admit that may be quite ambitious with my TBR this month given that I was only able to finish a book or two in the previous months (and some manga, comics, or poem books which are really short), but our office is usually closed during the holidays, so we are on mandatory day for almost two weeks! Of course, since the virus is still out there, I plan on spending most of the free time I have reading. As you all know, despite being able to put a dent on my physical TBR this year, I also accumulated A LOT of books so it feels like I didn’t put a dent at all. Haha
So without further ado, let’s dive right into the books I plan to read this month:
- The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
I think I’ve mentioned The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey so many times already as I’ve been reading it since last month. I like it so far, it’s just that there are chapters where I don’t connect with the characters all that much. I am also battling with a reading slump, so that’s one of the reasons why it’s taking me a while to finish this book.
- A Promised Land by Barack Obama
I am also listening to the audiobook of A Promised Land by Barack Obama and it’s as lovely as Michelle’s Becoming which I was able to get to last month. It’s 30 hours long and I am hoping to finish it before the year ends, but I am in no rush in finishing it. I just wanted to enjoy the audiobook and take my time with it.
- My True Love Gave To Me (anthology)
My True Love Gave To Me has been sitting on my shelf for a long time now (seriously, I’ve been saying this about a lot of books. Haha), and I am determined to finally read it this year. I keep on saving it for the Christmas season but always tend to forget about it when December comes. This year, I made sure not to forget it by setting an alarm on December 1 to include this in my TBR.
- When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
I think I bought this book early this year and I’ve been meaning to read it since, but I got busy trying to finish a series and/or being into a fantasy or thriller mood. I honestly have been into either a fantasy or thriller mood most of the year, so I haven’t read a lot of romance. This month, I just feel like I wanted to squeeze in a lighter novel, so I included this in my TBR and I’m hoping to be able to pick it up.
- There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins
There’s Someone Inside Your House has been on my radar since it was released because of the book’s cover. It’s black and pink which is one of my favorite combinations ever! Haha I’ve read mixed reviews about it, but I will still give it a try. Besides, I loved Stephanie Perkins’ writing-style in Anna and the French Kiss and though this is an entirely different genre, I still expect that her writing-style in There’s Someone Inside Your House is very easy to read.
- Beautiful Darkness (Caster Chronicles, #2) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
I read the first book in this series a in September and absolutely loved it, so I decided to finally pick up the next book in the series. I remember staying up so late reading book one, so this might help me with my reading slump!
There you have it — all the books I want to read in the last month of the year 2020! Up next would probably be my top 10 favorite reads of the year, so watch out for that.
How about you? How many books are you planning to read in December? Which book are you most excited to get to?
