It’s December. And that means…. (drumroll please) it’s Chrissi Cupboard Month!
My lovely sister and fellow blogger Chrissi Reads gives me books on a regular basis, and as she reads at the speed of light I have had to acquire a cupboard in my bedroom purely for her books. Unfortunately, with all my other books and huge TBR pile, I’m not getting through them as fast as I’d like so I would like to dedicate the month of December to reading books purely from the Chrissi Cupboard. I will obviously be reading my short story every week and our Kid-Lit and Banned books for the month of December, but I’m hoping the majority of books will be from this cupboard. Here are the first ten I am planning to read and review:
Asking For It – Louise O’Neill
The Kiss Of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles #1) – Mary E. Pearson
Prisoner Of Night And Fog (Prisoner Of Night And Fog #1) – Anne Blankman
Double Cross (Noughts & Crosses #4) – Malorie Blackman
Perfect Ruin (The Internment Chronicles #1) – Lauren DeStefano
In Darkling Wood – Emma Carroll
The Impossible Knife Of Memory – Laurie Halse Anderson
The Good Girl – Mary Kubica
Pointe – Brandy Colbert
Queen Of Shadows (Throne Of Glass #4) – Sarah J. Maas
As usual, I’m carrying on with a couple of series, finishing one (the Malorie Blackman) and starting others! My other Chrissi Cupboard Months so far have been pretty strong but I think this one is the strongest yet. I’m most excited for Asking For It and carrying on the Throne of Glass series as I’m absolutely smitten with it, but I have a funny feeling that I’m going to enjoy the Mary E. Pearson book a lot more than expected from what Chrissi has been gushing about it. She knows my tastes pretty well and I trust her judgement! I’ve also loved what I’ve read from Emma Carroll so far (review for Frost Hollow Hall and The Girl Who Walked On Air coming soon) so I’m very excited to read In Darkling Wood. A brilliant month ahead, wouldn’t you agree?
