TBR goal of December 2019

Previous month I’ve set a very achievable goal that I’ve actually managed to complete entirely and I am super proud of myself! Yay me!

Completely honest now, Tower of Dawn was my favourite this past month (and I am not even surprised to admit that). I’ve also enjoyed both Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo and Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia! Where the first one was dark and twisty and uncomfortable, the latter was just a ray of sunshine warm on my face and mind. Both of them – completely welcome!

Now, for this month I have another reading target that I’d really like to complete in order to declare 2019 successful. So there it goes:

Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass #7) by Sarah J. Maas

Why do I want to read this book:

  • All of the other six before this are already read and reviewed (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6);
  • It is the last book in a 7-volume series and I must read it in order to complete the series and to cross out the “Read an entire series in one year” from my bookish to-do list;
  • I literally refuse to enter 2020 with this book unfinished (Hello, 2020? What do you mean you’re here? Sorry, I can’t let you in, I haven’t finished Kingdom of Ash yet. I’ll have to politely ask you to leave. I’ll call you when I’m done to come pick me up, okay? Thanks.);
  • I must know what the hell is going to happen to all my babies. I want to ugly-cry and to scream and to be proud of all of my children. I want to feel like a mother seeing her children all grown-up and ready to move on with their lives. I WANT IT ALL.

The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1) by Holly Black

Why do I want to read this book:

  • It sounds faerie and magical and nice and I love me a good fantastical bedtime story with a cruel touch to it;
  • If you haven’t been leaving under a rock for the past month or so, then you’ll know that the last book of the trilogy came out and everyone went berserk and, shamefully admitting that I haven’t read the series yet, I am ready to see what’s all about;
  • The title says something about a cruel prince, the heart says something about reading it ASAP so I’ll count that as a reason to start it.

Hercule Poirot’s Christmas by Agatha Christie

Why do I want to read this book:

  • I am a declared Agatha Christie fan and I cannot believe I haven’t read this one yet;
  • I haven’t read a good old Christie mystery the whole year and this sounds so not like myself;
  • I want to feel Christmas-y in my own peculiar way and since I’ve never read Christmas Romance, Christmas Mystery is everything I need in life;
  • Again, I refuse to enter 2020 without reading this book so I’d better prepare myself to meet some goals.

And with that being said, with me luck!

P.S. Happy 101 years of Unification to all the Romanians out there! 💙💛❤️
