December TBR!!

The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror - Christopher Moore Let it Snow - Lauren Myracle, John Green, Maureen Johnson Norwegian Wood - Haruki Murakami The Robber Bride - Margaret Atwood A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 5) - George R.R. Martin

This December, I have an entire free month from school, exams, and work, something that has never happened in the history of my higher education! And, naturally, this means that a ton of reading will occur! I'm so excited!


I plan on reading two Christmas-themed books this month. The first is a reread of my all-time favourite Christmas book, Christopher Moore's The Stupidest Angel! I have mentioned this book before and it is just delightful, though not one that I would recommend to people opposed to vulgar and morbid humour. The second Christmas themed book that I will be reading this month is Let it Snow, by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle! This is a collection of short Christmas related stories and I'm really looking forward to reading it. (It's the only thing by John Green that I have not yet read.)


Now for the non-Christmas books! At the moment, I'm planning on reading Haruki Murakami's Norwegian Wood, which I have nothing but amazing things about, Margaret Atwood's The Robber Bride, which I have been meaning to read since last December, and finally completing George R.R. Martin's A Dance With Dragons! Oh yes. I'm super excited for all of these reads, but right now I'm most looking forward to finishing A Dance with Dragons. I'm really sad that I lost steam with it during the term.


Now assuming that the month goes particularly well, I'm also considering reading Isaac Marion's Warm Bodies, James Franco's Palo Alto, and perhaps even completing Murakami's Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman. We'll see how the month goes!


What are you all planning on reading this month?
