December TBR List

In an attempt at both organisation and motivation, at the start of each month I’m sharing a list of books I read during the previous month and a selection of titles from my TBR pile(s) that I would like to read during the coming month. November has been busy with school visits and other writing commitments as well as several family commitments as the end of the year approaches, so reading time has sadly been very limited. In addition to the books listed below, I have re-read a few favourite historical romances – my go to genre when I’m feeling tired/stressed. December will be another busy month, but I’m hoping to catch up on some of my backlog of picture books and junior fiction with the aim to get reviews scheduled through January.

Read in November

  1. In the Skin of a Monster by Kathryn Barker (YA Fiction)
  2. Sister Heart by Sally Morgan (Middle Fiction)
  3. Numerical Street by Antonia Pesenti and Hilary Bell (PB)
  4. The Colour Thief by Gabriel Alborozo (PB)
  5. Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late by Mo Willems (PB)
  6. Penelope Perfect: Very Private List for Camp Success by Chrissie Perry (Junior Fiction)
  7. Please, Open this Book! by Adam Lehrhaupt and Matthew Forsythe (PB)
  8. Where’s Jessie? by Janeen Brian and Anne Spudvilas (PB)

November  total: 8 books (5 picture books, 1 junior fiction, 1 middle fiction, 1 young adult fiction)
