Blogmas Day 2: December 2019 TBR


Happy BLOGMAS day 2! I just wanted to make it clear to everyone that not every day is going to be a post relating to Christmas. I would go absolutely insane. I’m just putting out a post every day—some are holiday themed and some aren’t.

Anyway, December is the first month where I make use of my TBR jars! I have one for my physical books and one for my NetGalley ARCs. I also need to pick a library book but that isn’t hard to do at all. I have thirty books checked out at any given time.

Physical Book Pick:

The Turn of the Screw by Henry James: This is very short and hopefully easy to get through. Have any of you read this one? Did you enjoy it (no spoilers, please!)

NetGalley Book Pick:

Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid: This was perfect because it comes out on December 31st. I’ll probably start this sooner rather than later.

Library Book Pick:

Where do I start?

These are the three main options:

– Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren: I have this on NetGalley—never got around to it, unfortunately.

– The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin: I’ve heard so many good things about this.

– One Night Gone by Tara Laskowski: I did get this one on NetGalley as well, but I never got around to it, so now I have it out from my library.


These will be ones I read if I just so happen to finish all of those or ones I have already started. I like to start the month off fresh and that usually means I put things down from the previous month. Don’t judge.

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern: I’m a little over 100 pages into this one. I was really enjoying it, but it’s not keeping my interest.

Giant Days Vol. 3 & Giant Days Vol. 4 by John Allison: I’m a little less than half way into volume 3, and I am hoping to start/finish volume 4.

The Light After the War by Anita Abriel: I’m 30% of the way into this one. It’s very easy to read, so I’m sure I can finish this one. This is also a NetGalley ARC—releases 2/4/20.

I would like to stick to just these books. I hate not having structure to my reading. This will also help me keep up with my NetGalley books. I’m very behind and I feel so bad. I have hit 80% before, and I would love to get back up there. December will be the catalyst for a successful 2020.

If you enjoyed this, then give it a like and follow my blog. Be respectful and happy reading!

I have recently joined the book community and I am enjoying it. I will be reviewing books on this blog as well as posting other bookish related posts. Most of the books I read are Young Adult but I'll try to read any genre. Let me know your opinions, but be respectful of others. Don't forget to tell people about this blog if you enjoy it!

  1. I’ve read the turn of the screw back when I was in High School, and I loved it. However, it was in french and therefore there are some things that could have been changed on the translation 🙂 I hope you’ll enjoy it 🙂
