Hello! This post is a little late, and I meant to finish it yesterday, but I did go to the library and I got a few books that I’ve been meaning to read for a long time, and that everyone has been saying are amazing! Anyways, here’s my December wrap up; how I did on my December TBR, my January TBR, my goals for other posts, and that sort of thing!
Books I read/How I Did On My December TBR:
In December, I reread a few of the OBOB books (I think that I might be missing one or two!), but there were also a bunch of other books that I wanted to read, so here’s how I did!
- The Book Thief, by Marcus Zusak————————————————————-yes!
- Sarah’s Key, by Tatiana de Rosnay————————————————————- yes!
- The Pox Party, The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing #1, by M. T. Anderson—–I am currently reading it!
- The Giant Pumpkin Suite, by Melanie Heuisier Hill—————————————-yes!
- Girl on a Wire, by Gwenda Bond————————————————————–yes!
- The Wolf Wilder, by Katherine Rundell—————————————————–yes!
- For Black Girls Like me, by Mariama J. Lockington—————————————-yes! (review here)
- All the Answers, by Kate Messner———————————————————–yes!
- Orange for the Sunsets, by Tina Athaide—————————————————no 😦
I also read/listened to some other books that weren’t on my TBR:
- 11 39 clues books (I don’t remember exactly which ones, but I know I listened to 11 of them)
- Hattie Big Sky
- It Ain’t So Awful, Falafel (review here)
- The School for Good and Evil
- The School for Good and Evil: a world without princes
In all, I read about 22 books, which is really good, and I’m really happy about that. December was also the first full month where I’ve almost completely tracked the books I’ve read!
My January TBR:
- The Gilded Wolves, by Roshani Chokshi
- Shadow and Bone, by Leigh Bardugo
- Six of Crows, by Leigh Bardugo
- The Teacher’s Funeral, by Richard Peck
- Momentous Events in the Life of a Cactus, by Dusti Bowling
- Hook’s Revenge: The Pirate’s Code, by Heidi Schulz
- 500 Words or Less, by Julia Del Rosario
- Okay For Now, by Gary D. Schmidt
- The Mysterious Benedict Society, by Trenton Lee Stewart
- The Mysterious Benedict Society: The Perilous Journey, by Trenton Lee Stewart
- The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict, by Trenton Lee Stewart
- It Ain’t So Awful, Falafel, by Firoozeh Dumas
I just went to the library and got 10 books, and although sadly there were a lot of books that were already checked out, I was able to get a few of the books I’ve been wanting to read! I’m especially really excited to read The Gilded Wolves, by Roshani Chokshi, which I have seen amazing reviews of, and I also am really looking forward to reading Six of Crows, by Leigh Bardugo. I was going to get the sequel, A Crooked Kingdom, at the library, but they didn’t have it! I also am excited to read the Mysterious Benedict Society, because I have seen wonderful things about that series as well!
My goals for the posts I wanted to write, and how I did:
In December, I wanted to write, in all, 15 posts, (not including the November wrap up), and here’s how I did!
- 3: Top Ten Tuesday
- 4: WWW Wednesday
- 3: Let’s Talk Bookish
- 4: Book Reviews
I also ended up posting sections of a story I’ve been working on:
And, I was nominated by Rukky @ Eternity Books for the Real Neat Blog Award!
So, all in all, I met all of my goals, and did more! I wrote 19 blog posts, and I’m really happy with that!
Posts I want to write in January:
I want to write:
- 1 tag
- 1 other post
- 2 Chapters of my story
- 2 book reviews
- 3 Top Ten Tuesday
- 4 Let’s Talk Bookish
- 5 WWW Wednesday
That is 18 posts, plus this one, which makes 19, the same number of posts I did last month!
So, that pretty much wraps up my month! What’s on your January TBR? Have you read Six of Crows, or The Gilded Wolves? Chat with me in the comments below!
