December 2015 TBR
My first thought when I typed that title was, "Holy cow! How is it December already?!" my second thought was, "Well, thank God! This year kind of sucked." The first half especially.
So let's look at what I intend to read in this last month of 2015. It may be worth a good laugh at the end of the month.
Literary Rivals by Richard Bradford - I'm still meandering through this.
Palace Walk by Naguib Mahfouz - I still have two books left to finish my Read Harder challenge. This will knock out the "book written by an author from Africa" challenge.
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen - If you saw my Friday Reads post, you will not be surprised to see this one on the list as it fulfills the "written by the author before they were 25" challenge.
Lafayette in the Somewhat United States by Sarah Vowell - This is a holdover from last month's TBR. My hold hasn't come in, yet. Hopefully it will come this month. I'm only one closer than I was a month ago. Hrmm.
Fool Moon by Jim Butcher - I'm listening to this on CD in my car, but I'm mildly annoyed by this because on my phone I can speed up the reading by 50% and it goes quickly. On the CDs I can't speed up and this narrator talks really slowly and does of lot of emphatic deep breathing. Sighs and whatnot. I keep thinking, "Hurry up!"
Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris - This is the book club pick for this month. It's just personal essays, but he is so funny. Perfect holiday reading.
The Bronte Cabinet by Deborah Lutz - This one has been calling to me of late. Seems like the perfect time to read it.
That is a highly ambitious list. Especially during the holiday season when I have even less time that usual to read. We shall see how this turns out.
