Monthly TBR: December 2019

Welcome to my monthly TBR post for December 2019! I decided to keep December deadline-free (regarding review books), and I’m so glad that I did! I fell behind on my reading (as per usual), so December is turning into a bit of a catchup month with the potential of becoming a “dive a bit into my backlist TBR” and/or “get a headstart on my January TBR” kind of month, haha. What does your monthly TBR look like?

The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black

Note: This book is part of a series, and there are likely some spoilers in the synopsis below.

He will be destruction of the crown and the ruination of the throne.

Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold onto. Jude learned this lesson when she released her control over the wicked king, Cardan, in exchange for immeasurable power.

Now as the exiled mortal Queen of Faerie, Jude is powerless and left reeling from Cardan’s betrayal. She bides her time determined to reclaim everything he took from her. Opportunity arrives in the form of her deceptive twin sister, Taryn, whose mortal life is in peril.

Jude must risk venturing back into the treacherous Faerie Court, and confront her lingering feelings for Cardan, if she wishes to save her sister. But Elfhame is not as she left it. War is brewing. As Jude slips deep within enemy lines she becomes ensnared in the conflict’s bloody politics.

And, when a dormant yet powerful curse is unleashed, panic spreads throughout the land, forcing her to choose between her ambition and her humanity…

Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw

Be careful of the dark, dark wood . . .

Especially the woods surrounding the town of Fir Haven. Some say these woods are magical. Haunted, even.

Rumored to be a witch, only Nora Walker knows the truth. She and the Walker women before her have always shared a special connection with the woods. And it’s this special connection that leads Nora to Oliver Huntsman—the same boy who disappeared from the Camp for Wayward Boys weeks ago—and in the middle of the worst snowstorm in years. He should be dead, but here he is alive, and left in the woods with no memory of the time he’d been missing.

But Nora can feel an uneasy shift in the woods at Oliver’s presence. And it’s not too long after that Nora realizes she has no choice but to unearth the truth behind how the boy she has come to care so deeply about survived his time in the forest, and what led him there in the first place. What Nora doesn’t know, though, is that Oliver has secrets of his own—secrets he’ll do anything to keep buried, because as it turns out, he wasn’t the only one to have gone missing on that fateful night all those weeks ago.

Cold Falling White by G.S. Prendergast

Note: This book is part of a series, and there are likely some spoilers in the synopsis below.

Humans. Clones. Aliens. No one is safe anymore. It’s the end of the world.

Xander Liu survived the alien invasion—just barely. For more than a year, he has outsmarted, hidden from, and otherwise avoided the ruthless intruders, the Nahx, dodging the deadly darts that have claimed so many. When the murder of his friend leaves him in the protective company of August, a rebellious Nahx soldier, Xander is finally able to make his way back to human controlled territory and relative safety. But safety among the humans is not what it seems.

When Raven awakes on a wide expanse of snowy sand dunes, she has many questions. What has happened to her and the other reanimated humans gathered around her? What is the meaning of the Nahx ships that hover ominously above them? And most pressing of all, where is August, who promised to keep her safe?

In the shadow of an unforgiving Canadian winter, Xander and Raven find themselves on opposite sides of an alien war. Left with little choice about their roles in the looming battle, they search for answers and allies all while being drawn back to the place where their respective fates were determined, and to the one who determined them: August.

Not the Girl You Marry by Andie J. Christopher

How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days gets a millennial makeover in this romantic comedy by USA Today bestselling author Andie J. Christopher.

Jack Nolan is a gentleman, a journalist, and unlucky in love. His viral success has pigeon-holed him as the how-to guy for a buzzy, internet media company instead of covering hard-hitting politics. Fed up with his fluffy articles and the app-based dating scene as well, he strikes a deal with his boss to write a final piece de resistance: How to Lose a Girl. Easier said than done when the girl he meets is Hannah Mayfield, and he’s not sure he wants her to dump him.

Hannah is an extremely successful event planner who’s focused on climbing the career ladder. Her firm is one of the most prestigious in the city, and she’s determined to secure her next promotion. But Hannah has a bit of an image problem. She needs to show her boss that she has range, including planning dreaded, romantic weddings. Enter Jack. He’s the perfect man to date for a couple weeks to prove to her boss that she’s not scared of feelings.

Before Jack and Hannah know it, their fake relationship starts to feel all too real—and neither of them can stand to lose each other.

If you’ve seen my Reading Schedule page recently, you might have noticed that I kept December open so that I could catch up on my 2019 reading (aka the November TBR books I’m carrying over), any backlist TBR books I might have time for, get a headstart on my 2020 TBR, oooooor just to give myself sometime without any reading deadlines because the holidays are nuts in my family and I remember really struggling with huge TBR piles in the last 2 years. What are your reading plans for December?

  1. I hope you can get to them all! I hope to red Winterwood and queen of nothing soon as well!


    1. Thank you! I’m almost done Queen of Nothing and it’s SO GOOD! Will be picking Winterwood up next. And I hope that you’ll get to both of those ASAP! 😀

  2. I feel you, December is also a catching up month for me and it’s a bit stressful. I’m hosting a series challenge in order to finish more series and in December I feel all the pressure since I have to catch up on all of them!
    I’ve seen great things about Queen of Nothing and though I haven’t even started the trilogy, I only see very positive reviews so I hope you’re enjoying the book and are satisfied with the ending 🙂
