I was a little worried I wasn’t going to get to Aggravated Momentum by Didi Oviatt before the end of November because of my slump but luckily I came out of it just in time. I am so glad I finally read this because I loved it. You can read my review here. The author sent me Cinders of Castlerea in January and I just now got around to reading it. I am so torn on this book. My review will be going up on my blog Friday but you can see it on Goodreads now. Around the time I was getting out of my reading slump I started getting in the mood to read Christmassy books so I decided I was going to dedicate a lot of my December TBR to Christmas books. I started the month off with The Polar Express which honestly was just an ok read to me. There was nothing really special about it and it didn’t wow me. I thought it was a cute story and I am glad that I can say I have read it. I also finished Nutcracker by E.T.A Hoffman. When I first started it I was a little skeptical but by the time I finished it I was loving it. This will definitely be a book I try to reread every year.
The past few months I have been participating in the Stephen King readalongs that Janel hosts on Instagram. This months book is Joyland. The discussion for this isn’t until the 16th so I am planning on reading this pretty slow. I’m currently on page 25 of 283. Next I started listening to Bird Box which wasn’t even on my TBR for this month but when I seen the movie was coming out on Netflix this month I had to hurry up and read it. I have been wanting to read this for a while now so I’m not mad about it. I’ve listened to about an hour of the audiobook and I have 8 hours to go.
I honesty don’t know what I will be in the mood to read next but it will most likely be one of these because it’s all of the books I have left on my TBR that aren’t going to be part of a readathon later in the month.
