Hooray for December! Wrapping up this year and maybe getting to wear a sweater or two!! My daughter (and probably my son, though he hasn't mentioned it) is hoping for snow. Let's be honest, I am too. So here's what I want to read in December. I will get a week in December with no school, so I might make this list a little longer than usual.
The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney - This is the book club book of the month. Luckily, I already own it. Hooray!!! This will be the first thing I read to get my required reading done.
The Reader by Traci Chee - I started this one in April while I was in San Antonio, but I didn't get it finished before it was due, and it had holds on it. This is a Sequoyah nominee.
In the Shadow of Liberty: The Hidden History of Slavery, Four Presidents, and Five Black Lives by Kenneth C. Davis - This is another Sequoyah nominee that I started once before and had to turn in before I finished. I figure reading half of two books will take the same amount of time as reading one whole book?
Roller Girl by Victoria Jamieson - And while I'm at it, I might as well get this little Tween Sequoyah nominee off my to-read list. It's a graphic novel, so it shouldn't take more than 30 minutes to read.
Odd Hours by Dean Koontz - I love this series. He hasn't written any new ones recently, but I still have a few left to read.
Seventh Grave and No Body by Darynda Jones - Apparently, I feel like it's time to catch up on mystery series. This one won't take very long. These read so fast, it'll just take a day or so.
How to Lead When You're Not In Charge: Leveraging Influence When You Lack Authority by Clay Scroggins - Just the thing to read right before the new year. Self help books. Yay!
The Almost Nearly Perfect People: Behind the Myth of the Scandinavian Utopia by Michael Booth - Because I'm fascinated by this phenomenon of the Scandinavians being the happiest people on earth.
Well, that's 8 books. That might be a little ambitious even if 2 are already half read and one is a graphic novel. We'll see what happens. December is notoriously busy, but I always try to make time for reading.
What are you planning to read in December?
