Tackling My TBR: December 2018

Wednesday, December 05, 2018

Tackling My TBR is a monthly post, where I share my reading plans for the upcoming month. I was so inspired by booktuber’s, BooksandLala, Closet Unhaul series to tackle my own TBR in a similar method. I'm going to challenge myself to read books from my old hauls and if I can’t complete them within the month, I must unhaul them the next month. Also, any readathons or other challenges for the month will also be posted in this monthly post.

Last month, I made my way through my September 2010 book haul, totaling at 7 books. Overall, I read 5 of the 7 books. Right off, I unhauled Wither by Lauren DeStefano since the series didn’t sound like something I would enjoy anymore. Also, I decided to wait until I finish the House of Night series before jumping into The Fledgling Handbook 101. That left me with 5 books to tackle last month and I was able to finish all of them! I read the 9th book in the House of Night series, Destined by P.C. and Kristin Cast which felt more like a filler plot than anything else and, so far, my least favorite in the whole series. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl was such a disappointment—I wanted to love it but the world fell flat for me. The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff was also disappointing. I just couldn’t get into it.

As for Defiance by Lili St. Crow, the book turned out to be such a surprise. I really enjoyed where the series is going and hope to finish the final book by the end of the year! Cloaked by Alex Flinn was such a cute read that mashed up different fairytales; it was a quick read.

Now for this month, I’m tackling my October 2010 book haul which only has 1 book on it. That’s very do-able so I may even add on my November 2010 book haul as well. However, since it is the last month of the year, I want to keep it open—it’s crunch time to get to all those books I wanted to get done this year.

Charlotte and Emily by Jude Morgan: It doesn't appear in the screenshot above since I've already started reading it. It's a fiction dramatization of the Bronte sisters' lives. So far, the pacing is a bit slow but I'm enjoying it.

Vixen by Jillian Larkin: I'm hoping for some Anna Godbersen vibes here. Vixen takes place during the roaring twenties, where secrets are always in danger of being spilled. I don't own the rest of the trilogy but if I love this one, we shall have to change that.

Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon: My brother recommended this one to me and I'm only now getting to it. The series follows Nick who is sucked into a paranormal realm of vampire slayers, demons, and zombies.

What are you planning to read this month?
