December 2022 TBR

It is the last TBR of the year! It's been a journey. Last week I told you I was going rogue with my December TBR. There are a few books I need to read to finish up challenges and for reviews, but after that, it's anyone's guess what I'll read. So here we go.


Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times by Katherine May - It seems like the obvious choice to read this in winter. I got this from NetGalley last year, and apparently, it is still open for reviews. I can read a book from my 50 by 50 list AND raise my NetGalley review score in one swell foop.


Loveless by Alice Oseman - This is the book I traded for A Snake Falls to Earth to read for the challenge Read a Book with an Asexual or Aromantic main character. The whole story is about a girl who thinks something is wrong with her until she goes to college and learns about asexuality.

Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy

The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy 2021 - This one meets the Read Harder challenge to read a "Best of _________ " Anthology. I might read a story at a time and spread it out over the month. I'm not sure how many there are. I'll look into that.


The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon - I still haven't read this and the second book in the series comes out at the end of February. I could put it off until January, but I have other NetGalley books I need to read then. I'll try and take care of it now.

Paris Library

The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles - This is another one that I got from NetGalley and I can still put in a review. I have two copies of this one. Unlike most of my other double copies of books, I didn't buy either of these books. One was a gift from my hubby and I won the other in a raffle. December is a good time to knock out some of those old NetGalley books so I can raise my ratings and get approved for more books. Not that I have room for more books. If I get approved for too many, I can't read the books I actually own.

Song of Silver

Song of Silver, Flame Like Night by Amelie Wen Zhao - Zhao put out a trilogy in the last couple of years that made a splash. I didn't read it. Now this is coming out in January. Its date is early January, so I put it on my December list because I feel like it's pretty long. 512 pages, to be exact. The beautiful cover didn't hurt anything either.

It's a pretty fantasy heavy month. One non-fiction, one contemporary, one historical fiction, 2 long fantasy novels, and a sci-fi/fantasy anthology. That's six books. Most likely I will read more than that, but December is a busy month. We'll see what happens.
