DECEMBER TBR // finally taking time off and getting back to reading!

Long time no see! I know I said I was going to get back into blogging and at the time I was telling thr truth but then a whole lot happened all at once and (again) I’ve been working 3 jobs and really haven’t had time to think let alone write a blog post. But, I finish up 2 of my jobs within the next week so I’ll have a bunch of time to get back to a normal life schedule sooner than later! Trust me, no one is more excited about the school holidays then I am (did I mention I’m a teacher?).

As for my actual plans for the month, I don’t have many because I prefer to wind down at the end of the year. But, I would like to continue watching Criminal Minds and My Hero Academia and possibly maybe read some books????

I’m not aiming to read a book a day because I already know that’s an irresponsible and impossible goal for me this month but I do want to try my hardest to read as much as I can since I haven’t read a whole lot in the last few months, so I’ll be reading some comics and manga (hopefully) and catching up on some of the books I missed out on earlier this year.

  • My Hero Academia Vol 1 & 2 – I recently started watching this anime with my younger brother and I’m honestly loving it so I’m going to borrow my broher’s copies of the first 2 mangas in the series to read along with the show.
  • Backstagers Vol 1, 2 & 3 -๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ“š – I meant to read this series last month but never got around to it ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

  • A Court of Wings and Ruin – ๐ŸŽง – I’m roughly a quarter of the way through this one and really enjoying it so far, even though I did take a massive break from reading it!
  • The Ivisible Life of Addie Larueย โ€“ ๐ŸŽง๐Ÿ“š – I managed to get a copy out form the library yesterday and itโ€™s so pretty??? Honestly, this sounds amazing and Iโ€™m super excited to get to it, hopefully very soon!
  • A Little Lifeย โ€“ ๐ŸŽง๐Ÿ“š – All I know about this book is that the librarian literally stopped me and told me that Iโ€™m going to cry???
  • In The Dream House – ๐ŸŽง๐Ÿ“š – I keep going to read this and then life keeps getting in the way but this will finally be the month I read this!!
  • The Fifth Seasonย โ€“ ๐ŸŽง๐Ÿ“š – I also know basically nothing about this book but Iโ€™ve seen a lot of people raving about it lately so Iโ€™m excited to get to it

What are you reading this month?

  1. I have a TBR of 8 books this month so I’m hoping I get to them all. The only book from here I’ve read is The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue and I absolutely loved it. I hope you enjoy it when you get round to it.

    1. Haha, I have a TONNE of books on my tbr this month too! But, the month is flying by so quickly! I’m reading Addie next (currently I’m reading A Little Life) and I’m really excited to get to it, since I’ve only read one Schwab book in the past.

      Good luck with your tbr this month too!


  2. Good luck with your TBR! I got a copy of Addie Larue with Book of the Month in October but haven’t read it yet. I’m really nervous since I’ve never read a Schwab book but everyone loves her so much, and what if I’m the only one who doesn’t like her? I’ll definitely be interested to see your thoughts on it since it seems like every review I read has a different opinion.

    1. Thank you! I’ve only read one Schwab book in the past and it was middle grade so I have no idea what to expect either! I’m planning on reading it in the next few days and my thoughts will be in my Dec wrap up!!

      Merry Christmas and good luck with your tbr!
