Recent Updates and Currently Reading | December 1

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. December! Is anyone else panicking about the books you didn't get a chance to read this year? I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's best of lists this month! I'm going to get crushed by my TBR pile.

Posted Last Week

I posted my ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ review of the Silo Series by Hugh Howey.

I shared a few books that recently made it onto my wishlist.

I shared my ⭐⭐★★★ thoughts on Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand.

Finished Reading

Skyward by Brandon Sanderson ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - So good! How does he do it?!

Currently Reading

I dove straight into Starsight when it arrived, but things were really crazy for my family throughout Thanksgiving and my concentration for reading did not exist. My goal is to finish The Eye of the World this weekend. Then I'll pick Starsight back up!

Recent Acquisitions

2nd and Charles had a Buy 5 Books, Get 5 Free sale for Black Friday. I found six books for me and four for my son. These are my six picks.

The Black Prism (Lightbringer #1) by Brent Weeks
Greenglass House (Greenglass House #1) by Kate Milford
Seveneves by Neal Stephenson
Closed for the Season by Mary Downing Hahn
The Doll in the Garden by Mary Downing Hahn
Stepping on the Cracks (Gordy Smith #1) by Mary Downing Hahn

Current Distractions

I loved Frozen II, I did not love Knives Out, and Klaus was cute.

So what about you? Let me know what you're reading (or watching) this week or leave me some links!

This post is being shared as part of Book Date's It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Caffeinated Book Reviewer's The Sunday Post.

  1. Are there any years, where I actually read all the books I intended? The answer is never, but I made a good dent, and I don't let it get to me. I hope you are able to accomplish what you hope to, reading wise, this month.

  2. Everyone is talking about Knives Out, I sort of want to see what all the fuss is about. I need to buy a copy of Skyward!

  3. I adored Skyward too and am busy listening to Starsight now!!!

  4. Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving holiday, Jennifer. There's never enough time to read all the books we want, right? :)

  5. Oh no two for Sawkill. I was wondering about that one...

  6. Oooh! The cover of The Doll in the Garden...!

  7. I definitely still have a few books I hoping to read before the end is up.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  8. I’m for sure panicking about the books I didn’t get to read. I had a terrible reading year. I’m kind of excited to start over next year. I hope you have a good week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  9. Is there a difference between end of the year reading panic and all year long reading panic? I've read a lot but never enough! I need to check out some of these Hahn books - they look really good!

  10. I STILL haven't read anything by Brandon Sanderson, but I've heard his books are fantastic! I wouldn't say I'm panicking about the books I didn't read, but I am still trying to get my NetGalley up to 80%. :)

  11. I am in full panic mode, not going to lie :)

  12. I'm another one that is in a end of the year panic! I haven't even finished my Goodreads Reading Challenge yet! lol
    Have a great week!

  13. Greenglass House is such a great book. I just finished the second one and loved it even more than the first.

  14. I hope you had a good Thanksgiving. The holidays can get a little crazy at times. I just bought Skyward so I am thrilled to see how much you enjoyed it. Have a great week.
