‘Nevernight,’ ‘The Assassin’s Blade,’ and More Books On My December TBR

I haven’t made a TBR post since June and that’s so sad. I’m happy to start doing this again and hopefully I’ll be able to stick to my TBR this month but I do have grad school applications to work on so we’ll see. However, most of these are library books so I actually do need to read these soon. Here’s my reading plan for December.

1. The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness


I’ve never read a Patrick Ness book so I figure it’s time I give his writing a try. So far I’m liking it but I’m only 15 pages in. I plan to finish this book by the end of this month.

2. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff


I absolutely loved the Illuminae series by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman so when I heard Kristoff was writing an adult novel I was excited. I’m participating in a readalong for this novel in the month of December, which you can get more info about here.

3. Burned by Ellen Hopkins


I actually read this novel a few years ago but I need to reread it so I can finally read the sequel. I remember how Burned ended but not all the details. I do know enough to remember this book will break my heart (again) but I’m ready.

4. Smoke by Ellen Hopkins


This is literally the only book by Ellen Hopkins I’ve never read and it’s killing me so I must read it. I’m hoping for a happy ending but having read almost all of Hopkins novels I know not to get my hopes up.

5. The Wrath & the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh


After my friend read this duology and told me how much she loved it I requested a copy from the library…and still haven’t read it. I believe I’ve renewed this book at least once already so I need to read it before it’s due again.

6. Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan


This is another reread for me but it’s honestly the perfect book for the holidays. However, I’m really rereading it because I want to read the sequel and I haven’t read Dash & Lily in years so I need a refresher before I see what they’re up to these days.

7. The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

I’m excited to read this book since I loved Dash & Lily so much. Also, I just love Christmas books in general so this will be a fun read.

8. The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas


This is the second time I’ve checked out this book from the library so I absolutely have to finish it this time. I’ve read the first two novellas so I’m hoping this will be the month I finish the rest. Wish me luck!
