Monthlies TBRs

December TBR: can I start 2022 with a clean slate?

December 3, 2021

Another month, another TBR ~

How on earth is it already December? I know I say this all the time, but the speed at which this year has gone by is leaving me with legitimate mental and emotional whiplash.

My goals for December are pretty loose:ย 

  1. Finish all of my current reads before the new year (I haven’t started a new year with a clean slate in ages!)
  2. Read some Christmas books! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…

current reads (leftovers):

Last month, this is where I put the rolled-over, not-yet-started TBR picks from the month prior, and I might pick that back up in 2022… but since my goals for December are just the two I mentioned above, this month, I’m only worried about the books I’m actuallyย currently reading.

๐ŸŽ„ The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune
๐ŸŽ„ Come With Meย by Ronald Malfi
๐ŸŽ„ Ghost Girlย by Ally Malinenko
๐ŸŽ„ Peel Back and Seeย by Mike Thorn
๐ŸŽ„ A Court of Wings and Ruinย by Sarah J. Maasย (re-read)
๐ŸŽ„ Mongrelsย by Stephen Graham Jones
๐ŸŽ„ For the Wolfย by Hannah F. Whitten

december’s (tentative) picks:

And here are the books I’mย adding to my TBR for the month! These are all the Christmas horror and romance books that I own, or can borrow from KU, that seemed the most interesting right now. They’re all very short, so I don’t think I’ll have a problem getting through the list!

๐ŸŽ„ If You Give a Jerk a Gingerbreadย //ย Jana Aston
A cheesy, cute Christmas rom-com novella (78pg)

๐ŸŽ„ย Mangos and Mistletoe // Adriana Herrera
A sapphic holiday romance between two bakers (152pg)

๐ŸŽ„ย Peppermint Kiss // Marian Snowe
A sapphic second chance romance (84pg)

๐ŸŽ„ย Secret Santa // Andrew Shaffer
I meant to read this Christmas horror-comedy last year but didn’t get to it, so I definitely want to this year! (220pg)

๐ŸŽ„ย A Krampus Carol // ed. Cynthia & Gerardo Pelayo
Give me aaaaall the holiday horror, please (205pg)

๐ŸŽ„ย The Visitor // Sergio Gomez
A horror novella featuring a bunch of strangers trapped with a killer on Christmas (72pg)

๐ŸŽ„ย Sugar and Spice // Eli Wray
I definitely don’t have enough nonbinary rep in my romance life, and this seems like a cute fluffy addition (44pg)

What are you reading this month?
