It’s difficult for me to find time to read (although I think I’ve been improving a little bit), but with the long holiday break in December, my schedule tends to clear up. I was also given a handful of graphic novels to read (I should have a blog post for that later), but here’s a list of books that I plan on reading/finishing this month!
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I purchased this book a while ago, and it has been staring down at me from my bookshelf ever since. I heard that it’s a great book with an interesting cast of characters (kinda similar to Suicide Squad?), so I’m realllllly going to try to read it this month (and maybe it’s sequel too).
Fairest by Marisa Meyer
I loved the Lunar Chronicles so much, so I’m sure I’ll love this spinoff about Queen Levanna’s past.
Tom’s River by Dan Fagin
This book was recommended to me when I was out volunteering. It’s a nonfiction book about Tom’s River, where a dye company called Ciba used lots of hazardous chemicals that eventually found their way into the town’s water supply. This book goes through the whole timeline-when the company moved in, when the chemicals started being questioned, the end of the dye production, and the aftermath. It’s pretty compelling and I’m almost finished with it!
A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin
I’m on the fourth Game of Thrones book. I feel like switching between all these characters every chapter drives me crazy, so I’ve been slowly making my way through. Maybe I’ll finish it, maybe not.
The Things We Wish Were True by Marybeth Mayhew Whalen
I’ve read the first third of the book, and there’s still so many questions that haven’t been answered. Each chapter comes from a different character’s perspective which gives you little tidbits of information in each one. All of the characters are older except for Callie, so it’s intriguing to see what secrets from the past the characters have been hiding.
The Crossroads of Should and Must: Find and Follow Your Passion by Elle Luna
This caught my eye on Black Friday as the eBook version was on sale. As a recent college grad who doesn’t have a clue on what to do with my life, I figured I might as well check it out. Apparently this book is pretty visual, so hopefully my kindle can handle it. Also, I might as well try to get inspired/motivated before the New Year.
