I’m super happy with how this graphic turned out. I guess I’m getting better at Procreate!

I’m obviously not going to finish this entire list, especially considering how busy my October already is with my shop, doing blogtober, doing drawing prompts and with my trip coming up later this month! But I do want to get through as many as I can and I’m even hoping to find time on my trip to read in the parks like I use to! This is basically a list to remind me of what books I need to get to lol. I took such a long break from reading that I feel super behind; but it’s hard to find time to read when you’re watching a toddler. I can barely find time to sleep (it’s 340am right now and I’m trying to finish this post).

I thought of finishing The House of Salt and Sorrow but it got really creepy, so I shut it and didn’t pick it back up after that lol. Not sure if I’ll ever finish it, but I really want to!

What are some of the reads you’re hoping to get to this spooky szn?

Winter 2020 TBR

As I mentioned before I’m aiming to read at least half of the 9 NetGalley books I have to review as well as a few fun reads on my TBR I’ve been putting off. I know I won’t get through all of these (hell I might not even get through the half for NetGalley) but ya girl is a dreamer so we’re gonna see how well we do at the end of the month!

NetGalley TBR

I have the other 2 books in The Conjurer series but I heard you don’t have to read these in order.

I previously reviewed the sampler for Lore and ended up being approved for the full copy; I had mixed feelings by the end of the sampler so we’ll see how this goes!

I’m currently reading The Poppy and the Rose and The Last Tiara is one I really want to get to even though it doesn’t release until Feb. I’ve just in the mood for duel time frames lately.

Scribd TBR

I LOVE Scribd. Like it’s insane how much I love Scribd. But it’s such a great resource esp when buying new titles start to add up. Most new releases are audiobooks but there’s no wait list or hold time or anything which is nice!

This is a mix of holiday reads and some titles I’ve wanted to read that I feel like still fit the theme of “holidays”. For some reason I think of the Grim Reaper during Christmas? I don’t know, maybe it’s just me. I’ve always had a Gregory Maguire on my TBR but haven’t gotten around to reading one of his titles yet, this one sounds perfect for the holiday season.

Kindle TBR

I thought I had more on my Kindle TBR but thankfully I only have 2 lol. The Haunting of Beatrix Greene is a lay over from Halloween, I tend to read most of what Rachel Hawkins writes. I loved Hex Hall so much so I’m down for anything supernatural she writes! I just love Sophie Kinsella (honestly who doesn’t)! Love Your Life has been on my radar for the last half of 2020, for sure.

I’m sweating from how ambitious this looks already. I can barely sleep and I really think I’m going to read all these books?! Well yeah, duh. Don’t I always? Ya’ll, send me good thoughts this month lol.

What are you looking forward to reading this December?
