Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Read Because Someone Recommended Them to Me

Hi! This Tuesday’s topic is really fun, and I’m excited for it! This week’s topic is Books I Read Because Someone Recommended Them to Me, and I’m going to include books that have been given to me in that, because I feel like that can all work in one big category.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl where there is a topic and you make a list that best fits that topic!

November Wrap Up

Hey! I can’t believe it’s already December; the season of holidays and snow! (haha it doesn’t snow in Eugene in December) I am so excited for winter break, and fun fact: Hanukkah falls right over Christmas this year!

Anyways, November has been a crazy month, but I actually managed to read quite a few books, so here’s my hopefully mostly complete list of the books I read in the past month, and by TBR (to be read) for the next month.

Books I read:

My TBR:

In December, I’m going to continue to reread the OBOB (Oregon Battle of the Books) books, but I there are also some books I’ve been wanting to read for a long time. I actually either own or borrowed from the library all of the books on my TBR, so here’s a picture of them, and a list of the titles:

  • The Book Thief, by Marcus Zusak
  • Sarah’s Key, by Tatiana de Rosnay
  • The Pox Party, The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing #1, by M. T. Anderson
  • The Giant Pumpkin Suite, by Melanie Heuisier Hill
  • Girl on a Wire, by Gwenda Bond
  • The Wolf Wilder, by Katherine Rundell
  • For Black Girls Like me, by Mariama J. Lockington
  • All the Answers, by Kate Messner
  • Orange for the Sunsets, by Tina Athaide

That TBR and rereading the OBOB books is a lot, but I am going to try!

Posts I want to Write:

This month, I want to write:

  • 3: Top Ten Tuesday
  • 4: WWW Wednesday
  • 3 4: Let’s Talk Bookish
  • 4: Book Reviews

That’s 15 posts, which is a lot, but I really want to post more, especially book reviews, because even though they are the hardest posts to write, they are still really fun, and I enjoy it a lot!

So, that pretty much wraps up my month in books, so I hope you all have an amazing December!

Happy Reading!
