Last month I managed to read the three books I required to finish the Litsy A-Z challenge but I still need to read four books to finish my last two reading challenges before the end of the year. I also want to read some new books from my TBR pile and a couple of Christmas ones as well.
Every Dead Thing – John Connolly
This month’s selection for Litsy WhodunitUK is one I’ve been really looking forward to as it’s a favourite series of one of my friends. It sounds like a book I’ll love.
Betty Boo – Claudia Pineiro
My choice for the prompt to read “a book set in Central or South America written by a Central or South American author” for the Read Harder Challenge. It’s crime fiction I’d never heard of until looking for books to suit this prompt.
Hidden Figures – Margot Lee Shetterly
Another pick for the Read Harder Challenge, this time for the prompt to read “a nonfiction book about technology”. I wanted a book I’d actually enjoy so hopefully this will work.
The Zookeeper’s Wife – Diane Ackerman
Apart from a recipe book I need to read to fulfil the prompt of “a nonfiction book about food/drink”, I needed a book beginning with Z to finish the Litsy Reading Challenge. I got this one in the kindle sale as I’ve heard some good reviews.
The Girl in the Tower – Katherine Arden
I’ve just finished my reread of The Bear and the Nightingale so I can finally read my ARC of the sequel. I have such high hopes for this as the first book was one of my favourites of 2017.
Batman: Nightwalker – Marie Lu
I’m expecting an early copy of this any day now and can’t wait. I loved Leigh Bardugo’s take on Wonder Woman and I recently read and adored Marie Lu’s Warcross so I’m incredibly excited for this.
Edge of Darkness – Karen Rose
I received a copy of this from the publisher and I’m eager to read Meredith and Adam’s story. I love Karen Rose and I’ve read her entire romantic suspense series so I’m sure I’ll adore this book too.
A Christmas Carol – Charles Dickens
I read this every Christmas and this year will be no exception. I love the message of this book and it really signals the start of Christmas for me.
Apart from these, I have a huge TBR pile with some wonderful books that I’d love to start tackling, especially Stalking Jack the Ripper and Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco.
I hope everyone has a great reading month!
