I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving (U.S. readers… and a great last-November-weekend world-wide 🙂 )! I didn’t travel and I had a couple days off work, so I was able to get a lot of reading in over the weekend. Best part…
Yeah baby! My 50th book was Willie Nelson’s Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die, part of my own little personal readathon over these four free days I just had. I will put up a post of mini-reviews later this week on the books I finished/read/started.
I don’t usually set formal reading goals each month, but for December, since I know it’ll go fast, there are four books I’d really like to read/finish before the end of the year:
- 11/22/63 … Stephen King
- Sudden Sea … R.A. Scotti
- Driven … Donald Driver
- MaddAddam … Margaret Atwood
I’ll finish 11/22/63 for our #112263Along before the readalong ends on December 22, and Sudden Sea is our December pick for my library’s Stranger than Fiction book group (about the 1938 hurricane that devastated the New England coast)—we have our discussion on December 20. I chose Donald Driver’s new memoir, Driven, as my win from A.M.B.‘s Literary Blog Hop contest a few weeks ago, and I just love Donald Driver and need something Packers-related that’s inspiring and uplifting (seeing as how they’re performance during games lately is anything but 😦 tears. Still love ’em, though). Lastly, I really want to read the third installment of Atwood’s masterful dystopian series, MaddAddam. I listened to Oryx and Crake on audio over the summer and was hooked, and I think I’d like to experience the whole trilogy before the year is over.
Anyway, if I can read these four books in December, I feel like I’ll have done all right. More reflection on my reading for the year in general will come later on at the end of the month!
What books are you guys are looking forward to reading to close out the year?
