End of Year TBR

๐ŸŽถ And when I see the stars on trees a-sparkling
That’s how I know it’s December, darling

[ Meg & Dia – “December, Darling” ]

Now that we’re officially in the twelfth of the twelve months of 2021, I guess it’s time to take stock of my TBR and see what I can cross off the list before the calendar switches over. It’s a very long list, as it always is, of course, so this is the narrowed-down version.

(How does one write a blog post, again? As always when I’ve fallen out of the flow, please bear with me as I relearn this skill.)

Cross-Country Reading Challenge

Though I’d originally aimed to finish this challenge by the end of the year, a combination of burnout, busyness, and a bit of a reading slump got in the way. So – keeping in mind that reading challenges are meant to be more fun than stressful – I’m extending my “deadline” to next June, giving myself a year rather than seven months to complete the 51 prompts.

In short, I still have about 20 states + DC to go; I have some titles penciled in, but suggestions are welcome!

Series in Progress

This section of my TBR has been thwarted by library hold queues, but in an ideal world I would’ve loved to finish or catch up on the below series, or at least as many volumes as I could get through.

Discworld series by Terry Pratchett:

  • City Watch subseries
  • Industrial Revolution subseries
  • The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Mice
  • Tiffany Aching subseries

October Daye series by Seanan McGuire:

  • A Red-Rose Chain
  • Once Broken Faith
  • The Brightest Fell
  • Night and Silence
  • The Unkindest Tide
  • A Killing Frost
  • When Sorrows Come
  • [more books TK]

Maximum Ride: The Manga by NaRae Lee (& James Patterson)

  • from Vol. 3 onwards


Miscellaneous TBR

Just some books I’ve acquired, either through my library or Amazon First Reads or as gifts, which I’d like to read in the next few weeks.

  • Have you had a good reading year so far? Or, like me, are you trying to catch up and cram in as many books as possible before the year ends?
  • What books are on your end-of-year TBR?
  • Do you have any books picked out to read in 2022?

  1. Honestly, I’m just trying to hold on for dear life as this semester barrels to an end, so I don’t have anything on my TBR. I’m looking forward to being able to read a ton once break starts.

  2. How does one write a blog post, again? As always when Iโ€™ve fallen out of the flow, please bear with me as I relearn this skill. – I feel this on a core level, except I’m not sure I ever knew how to blog to begin with. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

    I’ve been a reading monster for most of the year, so I’m not really cramming anything but it would definitely be nice if I manage to clear out some old ARCs. But alas, I’ve been dragged away into Stardew Valley.
